HI, I'M ZAC.
I'VE BEEN MAKING MOBILE APPS FOR AROUND FOUR YEARS.
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.
Clean, well-documented code is what I live for. Easy-to-read code means faster hand offs, quicker refactoring, & less duplicated methods.
Companies are growing & users are changing - fast. Your mobile codebase needs to scale with your users, developers, & designers.
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.
