MapQuest is your new favorite turn-by-turn navigation app from the company that started the online mapping revolution. Whether you’re taking a short trip across town or a road trip across the country, MapQuest has the trusted directions you need for stress-free navigation.

You can find the MapQuest app on the App Store and the Play Store. You can learn more about the MapQuest app on its official site, Wired, TechCrunch, Business Insider, ZDNet, PC Magazine, Engadget, Fast Company, TUAW, and SlashGear.

I worked on the redesigned, rewritten, and reinvisioned MapQuest mobile apps in 2013 as a Product Manager at MapQuest/Aol.

Within just a month of their November 2013 release, the MapQuest apps received over 4 million downloads.

GrowlVoice is an intuitive and fully-featured Google Voice client that brings the power of Google Voice to your Mac's menu bar.

You can find GrowlVoice on its official site. You can learn more about GrowlVoice on Lifehacker, The Next Web, MacWorld, and App Storm.

I worked on GrowlVoice as a personal side project from 2010 to 2012 while I was at college. The icon was both designed and generously donated by TJ Kohli.

GrowlVoice ranked as high as top 15 on the overall paid Mac App Store charts. It has sold over 20,000 copies since its release in early 2011.

Google revoked GrowlVoice's access to Google Voice in April of 2014 as part of their integration of Google Voice into Hangouts. As such, GrowlVoice has been officially discontinued and is no longer available on the Mac App Store.

I publish open source libraries for iOS when I get the chance.
