I have been writing software for a living for the last six years, working on web, desktop, and mobile applications. I picked up Android development a few months after the Android Market launched in September, 2008. Since then, I have developed eight successful apps, including four I published myself with a combined 600,000 downloads. My work has ranged from news readers to slot machines, from web services to custom animations. I have also created four highly-rated apps for clients, and published seven apps on behalf of other developers. I maintain a blog aimed at helping people understand Android development and the business of apps.
