Experienced Software Developer specializing in native Android SDK application programming. Put my excellent communication skills and passion for Android to work for YOU! (Just take a look at my 19 - 5 Star ratings and read the review comments!) I can help you with: o Taking your idea and making it reality o Coding to your design specifications o Adding new features to an existing application o Trouble-shooting existing applications I have over 20 years of professional programming experience. I left the corporate world four years ago and I'm loving freelance! I mostly work with small and startup companies, but I've also written an Android app for Microsoft. I'm currently writing a book for Packt Publishing but I have some time available for a new project. I'm committed to my profession and will be available for future updates and additions, as my track record shows!
