Tim Parnell

Software Magician

I write code and make digital things.

Hi, I am Tim Parnell. I have been making software since 2007 when I released one of my most popular projects, MacDust. Now I write code for Desktop, Mobile, and Web platforms.

I am currently a freelance consultant. I have worked as an in-house developer for MacHeist, as a Xojo specialist, and with a popular cloud screenshot software startup.

I am available to hire! Please send me an email :)
