Emergency Beacon

Emergency Beacon was made as a tool to help victims of natural disasters, falls, avalanches, or any other incident where they need to be rescued. The app features the ability to send your current gps coordinates by email or sms to a list of preset contacts, a built-in emergency survival guide, and an audible alarm to help rescue teams find your exact location. Since its release in 2011, Emergency Beacon has been downloaded over 27,000 times between 85 countries.



Ohana is an open source framework for working with a user's contacts on the iOS platform. It provides a component-based architecture for loading and processing contacts, as well as managing state such as contact selection and tagging. Whether loading contacts to display to a user, or processing contact data programatically, Ohana provides a simple, but extensible, framework for contact access in your application. I developed Ohana while working at Uber in 2016.
