Software DeveloperI currently write software at Upthere in Palo Alto. Upthere is in stealth mode, but I am allowed to say that we're doing interesting things in the field of cloud storage.
Previously I was a Senior iPhone Software Engineer for four years at SoundHound in San Jose, creators of the SoundHound music recognition app for iPhone, Android, and Windows. Soundhound has more than 200 million users and performs in excess of 4 million music IDs a day.
I started programming Cocoa/Objective-C on the Mac in 2004 and switched to iOS the minute it went public. I've also had nine years in management in the OEM electronic equipment business, and fifteen years professional programming experience in C and assembler on UNIX-like operating systems for embedded devices. I'm also pretty good photographer and a pretty average juggler.
You’ll catch me at NSCoder night in Campbell most Tuesday evenings and at Cocoaheads in Silicon Valley when I can make it. I'm @bagelturf on Twitter.
