What we Offer

Books and Videos

Our imprint, The Editor's Cut, produces short, focused electronic books and training videos designed to quickly teach you the basics of a single topic.

Training / Workshops

I currently offer public, private and online courses on Swift and on iOS development in Swift. For a list of the current classes, upcoming public dates, and information on booking and custom course creation visit the Training page.


I frequently give keynotes and technical sessions at conferences and local group meetups on Swift and iOS development, pedagogy, mathematics, podcasting, story telling, team building, and reaching your audience. Increasingly, I've been asked to MC/Host events. For a list of upcoming conference appearances and booking information visit the Speaking page.


I've hosted and produced podcasts since January, 2006 and worked in radio for dozens of years before that. I continue to produce podcasts and also consult and contract with podcasting clients. Email podcast@dimsumthinking.com

Consulting / Contracting

Now and then I have time for new coding or podcasting projects. I'm particularly interested in exploring pedagogy and creating learning environments. I'm also looking for creative audio projects but will consider iOS and macOS development gigs. For consulting and contracting inquiries, please contact me at inquiries@dimsumthinking.com.

He has written apps for the iPhone and the iPad since the SDKs first appeared and has written programs for the Mac all the way back to System 7. When he's not coding or talking about coding for the Mac, the iPhone, and the iPad he's probably cooking, baking bread, or hanging out with friends.
