Formerly chief architect of Kobo's iOS applications, then head of content formats and open standards work across the company. Original lead engineer and primary developer of the Readium SDK for EPUB3 reading systems.

I've presented at 360|MacDev and FITC Mobile, and I have another book (on Mac & iOS Networking) in the works for Pragmatic Programmers.

I developed the original AppleTV hacker's toolkit and built applications on the AppleTV platform, and I've worked with just about every major API in OS X since its initial release. In my spare time I have taken up occasional duty as the lead architect/lead programmer for XPlatform Consulting in Los Angeles, developing custom integration solutions for users of Final Cut Server and related products.
