Title Description
Career Timeline A "big-picture" approach to keep track of the left & right turns in my career so far. From collegiate golf to million dollar bowl game budgets to tech industry vet. It's been an odd journey and it's fun to look back on it & remember what I've done.
Teaching Myself How to Code Iโ€™ve been asked more than a few times about how I engineered such a wide left turn in my career. I decided it would be more impactful to put the story down in writing.
The Sneaker Contest Reimagined GOATโ€™s Black Friday contest is the largest digital sneaker event of the year. We hosted our first Black Friday drawing in 2015, just a few months after we launched the GOAT app.
Serverless Bookmarks on iOS Bookmarks & Favoriting - an essential tool for both shoppers and retailers in the world of e-commerce. But what if there isn't enough time to spin up an entire backend service for it?
Introducing Pixelfits The idea blossomed when Apple opened up its โ€œsubject liftingโ€ API, which magically lifts subjects out of images through a touch & hold interaction.
Why Design Matters I get that the topic of design's importance in tech isn't exactly breaking news, but I really think the story of how Pixelfits evolved is something special. It's also a bit of a personal journey for me โ€“ from a dismissive "design, schmesign" attitude to a full-on "aha, so this is what it's all about" moment.
Exploring New APIs w/ Pixelfits Whenever inspiration strikes for a new app, I blend the latest Apple APIs with technologies unexplored in my day job. This approach sharpens my skills, keeping me engaged with the evolving iOS landscape and its array of new tools.


Destro Labs is a bespoke apps, websites, and digital solutions provider.
