I solve business problems with software.

Over the past 15 years I have risked significant personal wealth to work on multiple startups. My unique experience allows me to understand a human desire, design a product that satisfies that need - then build and deploy it single-handedly from concept to scale. Sometimes I write about it.

I primarily work in Clojure/ClojureScript, but I have built small to medium-sized products (sub-million LOC) using Python, C#, C/C++, Java, Pascal and JavaScript.

Products I built:

  • 2007-2011 Rhythm Music Store: online music store / record label that that sold 80k MP3s online.
  • MyNames: an API to register .CO.ZA domains and provision nameservers. Stack: Python, AngularJS.
  • a mobile customer feedback tool that used geolocation and SMS to bridge the gap between customers and retail managers
  • 2007-2016: iFix (now weFix) Repair Management System tracks 500k repairs and millions in revenues at 36+ branches. Acquired by weFix.
  • ...several others.

There are more. Happy to delve into technical details.

Good with people and recruiting.
