Hi, I'm Kevin
I make things

ABOUT ME

Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I post things here that I make, from apps to games to furniture to 3D models. Check out my stuff and shoot me a message!

I'm an Engineering Manager living outside of Denver, CO. I've been an Android engineer for many years, and eventually got into management, which is great because I love leading, but I found myself yearning to do the actual "making" again. Leading those who do the making is fulfilling in its own way, but it lacks the visceral satisfaction of building something with your own hands.

So I'm back out there, looking to find someplace that needs a passionate, experienced, collaborative Android engineer. Hit me up if you wanna chat!
