My name is Nate Schulz. I’m a software engineer specializing in mobile applications and experiences. I have a background in video and music, which initially led me to graphic design and front-end web development. For my first 5 years in the software industry, I worked nearly full-time for Nanonation, in Lincoln, Nebraska while studying Physics at the University. I was lucky enough to have attended several Apple Keynotes including one in 2007 with the announcement of the original iPhone. The iPhone transformed mobile software from glorified calculator apps into an “enterprise-class” software industry. I graduated in 2009 and left Nanonation to start my own (very) small business, Theoretical Media, LLC. In 2012, I started work as a software engineer at Amazon in Orange County, California where I continue to play a role in improving the experience of Amazon’s Appstore for both Fire tablets and Android.
From time to time, I stand up on my soapbox to share some thoughts regardless if those around me are interested in hearing those thoughts! This will be my third or fourth attempt at maintaining an online outlet for writing so forgive me for the spontaneity of my posts. My plan this time is to collect my thoughts every month or so and record them primarily for my own reference. If anyone else is out there, I look forward to your comments and discussion.
My focus will be to keep the information shared on here as accurate as possible, so please help me keep it that way in the comments section.
It’s worth noting, (seriously, I’m legally required to note this) that the thoughts and opinions shared on this website are mine, and mine alone. The content of this site, including it’s name(s) or taglines, are not in any way meant to speak for, or on behalf of my employer.
Okay, with that business out of the way, let’s get started!
