the most important thing to me is building products people love to interact with
Hello, my name is Khalid Mills and I am a software developer at App Orchard focus on creating iOS mobile apps that are beautiful both inside and out. My job is to implement complex user interfaces, leveraging UIKit and Core Graphics.
Starting as a life-long illustrator turned designer, I discovered my passion for coding over 15 years ago, when started learning Actionscript to create dynamic animations that went beyond what could be done within a timeline. Since then I've worked with numerous ad agencies such as R/GA, Ogilvy, JWT, Digitas, Tribal DDB on top brands including Adidas, Sony, IBM, Verizon, Neutrogena and countless others.
When I'm not working on mobile app development, I'm honing my skills as a game developer, with my devious partner Kaza Razat.
I've been privileged to work with and learn from some of the most talented people
