EXAMPLES

SylvanSync

This iPad app is my proudest accomplishment. SylvanSync replaced paper and pencil based instruction with iPad based learning for thousands of students in hundreds of Sylvan learning centers nationwide.

As the sole iPad designer and developer, I was present for the entire application lifecycle - interviewing teachers, drafting a proof of concept, designing a web service architecture, conducting usability tests, launching, and updating.

Technical challenges solved included creating a high performance client/server architecture, developing handwriting and annotation tools, and seamlessly integrating native capabilities into HTML based lesson contents.

MapTastic

MapTastic is an iPad game that teaches US Geography in a fun and competitive way. Race against the clock to find all US states, capitals, and/or major cities before time runs out. Then demonstrate mastery by improving your speed and competing against the whole world on Game Center.

Party Game Timer

This is my first commercial iPhone app. I needed a random countdown timer to replace a timer from a board game. But when I could not find such a timer on the App Store, this app was born, along with a new career.
