As an iOS developer at the award winning international mobile app studio Bontouch, I worked on a wide variety of projects for clients ranging from small startups to giant corporations.

I gained experience collaborating in teams and also as a sole iOS developer. I started brand new projects using the latest technologies such as SwiftUI, Combine, and Async Await, and also helped maintain and improve older projects using Objective-C and UIKit.

As the founder of Skilpadde Labs, I created several apps, focused on sound and music, for iPhone, iPad, and tvOS. I gained experience with CoreAudio and AVFoundation and created my own custom synthesis engine in C++.
