Work

I have developed and designed a wide variety of apps ranging from social media, finance and accounting to medical applications – and currently Android OS, a platform that supports two billion users.

I like to build things that help improve the betterment of people’s lives and that starts by providing the best user experience possible.

Design & Developer advocate at GDG Toronto Android

To bring Android to the top of mind among other developers, designers and product managers throughout my career, I've held several Android Design Lunch and Learns to inspire and empower other developers and designers. You can view a tidbit of one of my talks where I speak about the differences between Up and Back on Android – and why it's important.

Some of my speaking gigs include hosting a talk at Toronto tech community: GDG Toronto Android.

 
Ecobee Login

eCOBEE

Shared my learnings from previous work to push for a testable architecture to ensure all of our components never break through a Model-View-Presenter architecture as an Android Engineer.  I am also a design advocate ensuring design spec is communicated well and is translated during design to developer handoff.

Despite our mission to have our ecobee design language consistent across all of our platforms (Android, Web and iOS), I consistently challenge our designers to stay within Google Material Design so our product feels right at home.

ecobee is a smart wifi thermostat that can help save the environment by saving electricity, money on your utility bill, all while looking beautiful on your wall.
