In October of 2016, I joined the team of WhatsApp, a messaging service used by over a billion people everyday around the world. For a long time I had admired the principles in which WhatsApp designs and builds its product.

WhatsApp is focused on creating a simple, native, and reliable messaging app which is also secured with end-to-end encryption. Here are some of the projects I’ve worked on:

Facebook Groups

There are over 1 billion people who use Facebook Groups on a monthly basis to get things done, share with their families and friends, and connect to others around similar interests.

I worked on Groups at Facebook between 2014-2016. It was an exciting product to work on because I believe it helps facilitate some of the best conversations on Facebook by creating engaged and relevant audiences. Groups also make sharing to a limited audience easy to understand.

MOON originally started as a personal project to learn how to develop an app for iOS.

The goal was to create a lunar calendar to see the current phase of the moon. After I had finished the initial version of the app I published it to the App Store. It quickly started getting a lot of attention since it was one of the only simple lunar calendars that focused on the experience of the moon.

I created my first WordPress theme. I call it Song.

Song is a WordPress theme for writers who want a simple theme that loads incredibly fast. I tried to only focus on two things; readability and loading speed. So much in fact, that I am calling it the ‘fastest WordPress theme ever.’ I actually somewhat believe that statement.

I wrote a bunch more about it over here. I also open-sourced it on Github if you’d like to play with the code.
