Portfolio

Prudential Retirement

Consumer facing native mobile app rated 4.5+, with close to million users. Retirement plan participants (users) can access their retirement accounts such as 401k, and manage their contributions and investments.

AccuWeather

Top ranked and rated free weather app among 500+ apps in the market. Introduced paid app. App provided information and warning, and showcased award winning design.

Alexa Skill for Prudential

First in the retirement and finance industry to offer an authenticated experience on Amazon's Alexa. Users can check their account balance, and investment performance.

AccuWeather app for Connected TVs

Weather app for connected TVs. Different technology, design and challenges than traditional web or mobile phone app. Built an easily scalable model that we could quickly customize and launch on many partner TV's platforms.

AccuWeather app for BB10

Not many remember a smartphone from BlackBerry, but we built a beautiful app, and it was one of the top ranked apps.

Smartwatch

A first smartwatch app from AccuWeather, and as always I was up for a challenge. Later I also helped build app for Google's Android Wear, and it was ready on the day of the launch of Android Wear. No thrill like to launch an app to sync with a hardware launch, as it comes with its own idiosyncrasies of beta hardware and unknown challenges.

Some fun facts that I didn't tell you:

  • My app did not crash THE Google Maps
  • Nor did my testing affect 40K people’s finances
