I write code for Web, Desktop, and iOS

Hi, I am Tim Parnell. I have been making Mac software since 2007, when I released one of my most popular projects, MacDust. I am now a software developer with several products available.

I currently work with BKeeney Software. In the past I have worked with the TinyGrab team; and as an in-house developer for MacHeist.

I like to tinker with projects, so send me an email :)
