My name is Dalton, and this is my website.

By day, I work for a company called Bottle Rocket where I lead a team of iOS developers working on a product called AWE. The AWE framework powers the apps of some of the world's largest television networks like NBC. I also spend time evangelizing tech that I find compelling, such as Amazon Alexa.

By night, I like to learn and play. I have released numerous personal apps and games to the App Store, and published over twenty open-source projects on GitHub. My most popular project is TweenController, which has been starred over 430 times, and has been featured in several blogs.

Here's what I've been playing with lately:

  • Swift 3.0
  • Go Programming Language
  • Amazon Alexa
  • HTTP Live Streaming
  • Amazon Web Services

In addition to writing software, I like to write and play music, brew beer, play Kerbal Space Program, and hang out with my fiancée and two cats.
