Android Developer

Time at Swipe & Tap

Joined in March 2017


Native Android development. Currently in Java, but I’m also learning Kotlin.

What do you enjoy most about working at Swipe & Tap?

I get to work with some very talented people, and I learn something new every day.

What is your favourite mobile app at the moment?

The Android Safeguard app I’ve recently finished. Also the “Plaid” app available on Google Play; I have no idea what it does, but it’s a nice showcase for Material Design.


My main hobby is taking my elderly cat back and forth to the vet, but I also play guitar in a punk band occasionally.
