ABOUT


Kelly O'Brien

I am an iOS Developer. I build apps in Swift and SwiftUI.

I have a keen appreciation for design and usability and am a proactive team player who enjoys working in an Agile environment. I am a lifelong learner looking to further my skill set while creating innovative and exciting apps.

Previously I worked as a Sr. Web Developer for NBC.com managing sites for a number of hit shows before returning to freelance so I could focus on building compelling websites for individuals and small businesses while following my passion into iOS Development.
