About Me

Robert Swilley

My Name is Robert Swilley, and I am originally from Jackson, Mississippi. In early 2014 I moved to the Greater Detroit, Michigan area.

I’ve been working with computers in some way or another since I was 14 years old. I got my feet wet with web design when I learned basic HTML and built my first website in 7th grade.

I built my first Windows application around the same time using Visual Basic 3.0. I was introduced to the hardware side of things with my first job at 15 repairing computers at a local computer repair shop.

Ever since then I’ve been hooked on technology and software development. Web Design & Development has always been a hobby of mine, so when I found out I could make it a career I knew it was where I wanted to be.

My Projects

To further enhance my skill set I currently have two projects that I maintain.

In 2013 I developed FlashMyCase, an iOS app, which allows a user to design a custom iPhone case using their phone. My father and I ship cases out to customers worldwide.

In 2008 I developed FreeWorkoutLog, a free online exercise log.

If you’d like more information on my projects you can view the My Projects page or view the FlashMyCase site or FreeWorkoutLog site, respectively.
