iOS DEVELOPER & DESIGNER

HELLO

HI, I'M ZAC.

I SPECIALIZE IN NATIVE iOS DEVELOPMENT WITH SWIFT, MAKING

CUSTOM FRAMEWORKS AND COMPLEX UI ELEMENTS.

I WORKED WITH MANY STARTUPS AND MAJOR BRANDS IN THE PAST.

LET'S SEE WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU.

 
 

EXPERTISE

CLEAN CODE

Clean, well-documented code is what I live for. Easy-to-read code means faster hand offs, quicker refactoring, & less duplicated methods.

SCALABILITY

Companies are growing & users are changing - fast. Your mobile codebase needs to scale with your users, developers, & designers.

COMPLEX UI

UI & UX are what catch users' eyes and it's just as important as your core features. I love coding out elegant & complex user interfaces for iOS.
