Colin is an experienced software engineer specializing in Android development. He worked for Mozilla on the Firefox for Android browser rewrite. He has worked for many successful companies in the past fifteen years, including Amazon, Flipgrid (acquired by Microsoft), Cray, Pearson VUE, and When I Work. He runs the Twin Cities Kotlin User Group in his spare time.
Colin has a strong background in infosec as both a former Amazon security certifier and as a security expert on the Android team at Mozilla. Lately, he's been conducting code security reviews for PullRequest.
He has been programming since he learned BASIC on the TRS-80 computer in his parents' basement at age six. He has been writing Android apps since soon after the first Android phone launched and has done so professionally since the last space shuttle landed. In that time, he's probably been pitched every silly app idea.
