About

I'm an exuberant software developer, speaker, and open source contributor, with 10+ years experience building applications using the Microsoft technology stack. I specialize in developing cross-platform mobile apps using Xamarin technologies and am a 4-time Xamarin Certified Mobile Developer. (it's an old picture)

I live and work in the bustling center of "Silicon Prairie", Minneapolis MN, where I'm a Sr. Mobile Developer at Polaris Industries working on the Ride Command mobile apps.
In addition to my professional work, I also have a few personal apps in the iOS App Store (check 'em out, they're free!)

I regularly attend and speak at the MN Enterprise Mobile meetup for Xamarin developers, so if you're in the area I'd highly recommend checking it out.

Open Source

I wrote the UWP support for these two great drawing libraries that are popular among Xamarin developers:

  • NGraphics - a cross platform library for rendering vector graphics on .NET
  • NControl - a simple Xamarin.Forms wrapper control around the NGraphics library

Speaking

Here are some of my current talks right now:

And the next events I’ll be speaking at:
