Clint Mejia - iOS Developer Former combat medic, entrepreneur and professional photographer experienced with working in fast paced environments. As a developer, my resilience and high tolerance for complexity allow me to maintain my “never give up” attitude. My desire for continuous growth has led me to experimenting with augmented reality, resulting in an in-person sales tool for photographers. I’ve collaborated with both large and small teams on projects, providing software development and creative input to find solutions to complex problems. My goal is to provide value to a company that offers challenging experiences, constant learning, embraces innovation and fosters collaboration.
