I'm an iOS & Web developer and aspiring indie. By day I do iOS and .NET development, but by night I am a Philly area music photographer and bootstrapper trying to upgrade my skills and start an indie software company with my friend Mike.
I also run Side Project Saturday as one of the leadership of Philly CocoaHeads.
