2013-Current Travel Timeline Here
At Meta, 2016–2022 I built Spark AR platform (IG/FB camera filters, creation tools on mobile and desktop), Polar app and was an engineer @ Oculus platform.
First hire at MSQRD, the company acquired by Facebook in March 2016 when I was still in university. I had to drop out and move to London to continue integrating MSQRD into Facebook. The app had 50+ million MAU and its peak.
Before MSQRD, I was a mobile engineer at Toggl in Estonia. I had experience working for a mobile studio out of NY - Touchappmedia.
First success company I co-founded without any investments is “Dry Fire Timer” in 2013, which hit profitability in 1 month after the launch and still trumps my personal effort:value ratio.
