About Me

Hi, I'm Keenen Charles.

I'm a maker, software developer, and writer. I've built and launched several projects and regularly write articles about tech, life, and everything in between.

I've been building products since 2013. My first major product was TapTag which ultimately failed but taught me many valuable lessons. Since then I've created apps for clients and now work as a software developer for several startups and focused on Android and frontend development.

In my spare time I've continued to create products and write articles.
