I Make Things.
photoKandy Studios LLC was formed in 2009, and has since been operating as a photography
and IT Consulting business. I'm a passionate creator, and so have my hands in
graphic design, desktop and mobile application design, web design, photography, and
music. I also like to write a lot. More about me...

Recent App.net Posts
I've been working with technology for most of my life, starting at an early age on a Commdore 64. I still
fondly remember the beige computer with slow floppy disk drive and learning BASIC from the manual.
I love to develop apps (mobile and desktop), and to help others do the same. I am an
and can be found out and about making pictures of just about anything. I'm also an
working with websites and databases. I've written two books about mobile app development,
and I'm active on various social networks — some more than others.
Personally, I love to work with my fresh-water aquariums. I have two: a 37 gallon aquarium and a 20
gallon aquarium. Favorite fish include Bettas, Platys, Pictus, Plecos, and Catfish. I also enjoy
performing and composing music. My favorite instrument is the piano.
I like to write about various subjects, so be sure to check out the blogs.
If you'd like to inquire about consulting work, or anything in general, contact me.
I love making apps for both the mobile and desktop environments. I've created mobile apps using
Objective C + Xcode for iPhone/iPad apps, and I've also used PhoneGap/Cordova for multi-platform
mobile apps. On the desktop, I can create website applications using a variety of technologies,
including MySQL, Oracle, PHP, and more. I'd be happy to work up a quote for your app.
This app is designed to allow the reader to study the New Testament in the original Greek. It features
custom typography used to layout the Greek words above the Greek morphology and Strong's Indexes. It uses
SQLite3 as the backend database in order to store the user's highlights, notes, and settings. The app is
available on the Apple iTunes App Store. More information...
Enterprise SOAP App
I recently created a mobile app using PhoneGap/Cordova to interface with SOAP web services for a client.
I'm not at liberty to dicuss the app, but works across iPad, iPhone, and Android and appears nearly
native on all three devices. The app had to do charting, take pictures, and store information to
I'd be happy to assist with your consulting needs in any of the following areas.

Photography is in my blood, and you'll often find me out and about making pictures of just about
anything, whether it be a gorgeous landscape or a rusted object sitting in the middle of nowhere.

Books I've Written
This book will guide you through using PhoneGap/Cordova to create ten mobile apps that work on Android and iOS.
The book covers localization, social media, using the device's camera to capture images and video, working with persistent storage, using the accelerometer, and more. Along the way, you'll be introduced to installing and creating native plugins for when you need just a little more access to the device, or if you need to use native controls. More Information...
This is a short project that builds a simple Twitter-based app using PhoneGap. In it, you'll work with
Twitter's feed via JSON, install a native plugin, and share content using Twitter's Web Intents. All along
the way, you'll be building a cross-platform mobile application that will feel at home on iOS and Android platforms. More Information...
I Like to Write...
One blog is never enough, or so it seems.
- • My App.Net micro blog.
- • My Tumblr Blog — This is where most of my blogging activity is... what there is of it.
- • Aquarables — I like fish. Sometimes fish can teach us useful life lessons.
- • My Coderwall — When I post interesting things related to coding and development, this is where it will be.
Ye olde watering holes...
I'm on several social networks, some more active than others. Follow me if you like!
- • App.net — this account is new, but at least it isn't subject to Twitter's silly rules.
- • Coderwall — anything code-related usually goes here.
- • Github — Fork me! I've got several projects going, including the source to my Greek Interlinear Bible app.
- • Google+ — The up&comer, but really a nice place, especially for photography.
- • Tumblr — When I have wordy things to say, it usually ends up here.
- • Twitter — I may not like the company much, but the social network is hard to avoid.
Yeah, we hate trotting out the legal stuff too, but y'know - it is just one of those things you can't escape... so without further ado...
