Data for good, software for a cause, side projects for growth.

It was a photo of a little girl riding a bike amongst the ruins of the Japanese Tsunami that moved me the most. Caught up in the emotion of their photos and stories, I offered to build an iPhone app for a non-profit, using their data to help tell their story.

Living an Agile Life

Change happens to us all the time. Normally, it happens so slowly that we don't particularly notice. Sometimes the change happens so quickly that we do notice. My life changed in September 2009. With sudden hearing loss and constant vertigo, my life took a sudden turn. I learned to ask for help; to accept that I can’t control everything; to see the current state so and to envision where I want to go. I adapt how I work, ...more »
