What kind of projects do you look for?
There needs to be a purpose-driven mission to do something bigger. I look for startups, in particular, where I’m at the ground level with founders and can focus on helping them bring an MVP to market. A typical engagement lasts around 6 months but varies based on how long it takes to discover a product worth taking to market
Right now I’m very interested in products that have a strong focus on design and involves Photo/Video, Finance (including Crypto), and Games.
Products must require native solutions. I’m interested in pushing boundaries and focusing on building exceptional experiences on one platform at a time.
Wait. You can help me with my game?
When I’m not building iOS products I am working on the successor to iGotIt Games. I no longer build games natively and may be available to help your team if you are using Unreal Engine, are funded, and require a gameplay programmer with a strong desire for great design. I’d prefer to help a teams working on an RPG/MMO or simulation game and am not concerned with the size of the company.
Can I hire you as a consultant?
Building a product can feel daunting. Where do you begin? How do you the hire technical minds to get you there? Do you build a native app or hybrid? What processes are we missing that will help my team get [redacted] done? Is your design ready for implementation? If you’ve got questions I’ve got plenty of advice. Let’s talk.
Are you available?
Maybe. Given the length of my contracts, it’s a safe bet that I’m not immediately available. I may have hours available depending on where I am with my contract(s) so please feel free to reach out.
How do you bill?
I often bill bi-weekly or monthly depending on the client. A retainer will be required to begin work and, until we work together for a few months, I will not proceed with development without a retainer balance.[updated March 2018]
