I've been building native iPhone and iPad apps for over 5 years. I have a Swift developer tutorials blog with over 3500 subscribers. I wrote the book on creating iOS apps with REST APIs. I recently spent 2 years living and travelling on a 34' sailboat.
I love Alamofire, Swift, git, craft beer (if it's not all IPAs), live music, my dog, and Oxford commas. I really didn't mind Objective-C but it'd be really hard to go back now. I hate SOAP APIs, poorly executed web wrappers in mobile apps, people who are sure they can predict the future, and soggy food.
I've built apps for photo-centric social networking, racing cars, controlling robots, showing off Salesforce integrations at conferences, and faking poltergeists.
