I have over two decades of experience in software engineering, data science, and project management across multiple platforms, technology stacks, and industries.
I’ve worked on solo projects, small team projects, and projects with diverse, international teams.
I also have a PhD in computational genetics, and have worked on a number of projects that have required not only a sound understanding of software design and craftsmanship, but also a strong grasp of data science and statistical analysis.
However, that doesn’t mean I’m necessarily the best fit for your project. Please read through these guidelines and review my portfolio of recent mobile app development, data science, and web development work.
Then, if you still feel like you’d like to work with me, or have other questions, please get in touch.
While I’m fairly skilled at most general aspects of modern software development and data science, and can come up to speed on new technologies fairly quickly, here are areas I’m particularly experienced in:
- Working within the Apple Ecosystem
- Mobile Development Trends
- Modernizing Mobile Apps
- Statistical Analysis
- Audio Streaming
- Machine Learning
- API Design and Integration
- Firebase Integration
- Database Development & Optimization
- Integrating Multiple Tech Stacks
How I Work
I perform all work remotely and am currently unavailable for continuous onsite work.
I do not subcontract or outsource any aspect of software development. If your team lacks a graphic designer, and your project requires complex graphic resources, I may commission those items from one or more trusted designers.
I strongly prefer email for discussing project specs, resolving questions, and other communications. Email provides an automatic written record of discussions and decisions, and is less disruptive than synchronous strategy meetings.
However, for projects that last longer than one month, I am happy to schedule a monthly progress call over Zoom or Skype, billed at my standard rate, if that is preferable.
I am generally never available to “jump on a call” at unscheduled times.
Rates & Payment Terms
My current rate for app development and data analytics work is $175 USD / hour.
I offer both fixed-cost and hourly billing, depending on the project.
I almost never work for equity or profit-sharing for pre-IPO companies.
I bill hourly for exploratory work, code assessments, data analytics work, and project maintenance (such as updating a project to support a new OS version).
Virtual and onsite meetings are also billed hourly. Onsite meetings are billed portal-to-portal, plus travel expenses.
Invoices are sent monthly, and are due within seven days.
I bill new project work using a fixed-cost estimate.
Fixed-cost projects have a pre-approved scope and deliverable schedule. So long as the scope and deliverable list doesn’t change, the cost shouldn’t either.
Invoices are sent according to the following schedule, and are due within seven days:
- 25% Due at initial contract signing.
- 50% Due upon delivery of testing prototype.
- 25% Due upon delivery of source code and other project assets.
