FJ is a smart iOS developer and was a great asset to our team on the projects he worked on. He is capable of building complex applications and uses librairies, patterns and everything that a senior software engineer should use. FJ is always on the edge with the latest trends, librairies and technologies, I would recommend him to anyone in need of a senior iOS developer.

Olivia Siu, Marketing Manager at Root Data Center

FJ always managed to stay in touch with the latest tech trends to keep our knowledge at the forefront. He was a savvy and talented iOS developer who went above and beyond to bring any design to life and make a designer's dream come true - all without sacrificing the usability and fluidness of the app. I had a great time working with him and hope our professional paths will cross again in the future.
