Stephen has worked developing sections of the QNX core OS as well as developing drivers in C for use in mobile devices. Also, he has setup a build and integration server for testing of drivers. At Blackberry he worked as a team lead for several concept and demo projects related to mobile UX. He has also successfully lead a creative team to develop a sign language translation concept project, resulting in an international award.
