Richard Burgess

I am a professional software developer with 20 years of experience developing software on a wide variety of platforms, including PC, Xbox, PS3, iPhone, and OS X. I have created over a 100 iPhone and OS X apps for clients and professionally. I have direct experience with nearly every iPhone and OS X API as well as various 3rd party frameworks. I do freelance work part-time to supplement my income and for the simple enjoyment of programming. I would be able to devote approximately 20 hours a week to your project.
