Hello!


I’m Steven. Or Steve. Or anything really; I’m not picky.


I have an uncanny knack for failing forward. Much like the software I develop, my life is full of both bugs and features that keep me hungry for improvement and happy with progress. My best ideas come when I tear down what I think I know, and take a moment to consider other angles. My first Swift project Honeychain, for example, was created through a series of deliberate pivots that eventually landed on a product far superior to its original design. I’ve since learned to channel this iterative spirit into everything I do.

My specialties include C++, Swift, Javascript, React/Redux C#, Bash, SQL, project management & source control (Scrum, Kanban, Git), and QA/Automation. I have 5+ years of experience writing stable, maintainable, and scalable enterprise-grade code, and participate heavily in issue tracking and resolution. Building new products excites me, but I find just as much satisfaction in maintaining what's already been created. I value teamwork & collaboration above most else, and know very well that with enough brains and enough coffee, anything is possible.
