I help bold entrepreneurs solve big problems with software.

Build the right product, for happy customers, and get to market faster.

How I make your business succeed

The biggest mistake I see most founders make is developing an app before they ever asked a single customer what they wanted. Because this is so common I start every project with a validation session. Our main goal is to prove that your current idea is worth building.

In only a few short days we’ll get tangible evidence from real customers in your market. From there we can safely build your app and launch you into the market with the best chance of success.

1. Validate it


Together we’ll brainstorm the key features of your app, create a prototype, and put it to the test against real customers.

After, we’ll have actionable feedback that proves exactly which parts of the app resonate without writing a single line of code.

2. Build it


After validating what is worth developing, we’ll break these features down into development milestones.

Milestones are weekly chunks of time where you’ll have clear visibility into the project’s status and a beta version to feel the real deal.

3. Launch it


The app is ready, it’s time to release it to the world. From day 1 you’ll be able to track all the key conversion metrics that drive success.

Know exactly how your app is performing right away – not months later.


Validate your idea in a week, not months

You know what sucks? Wasting a year building an app, draining your savings and retirement accounts, and then going out of business because no customers wanted your product in the first place.

This is heartbreaking because I know there is a better way.

So, instead of crossing our fingers and praying to the app gods, we could instead follow a battle tested design framework that proves customers will use and purchase your hard work.

Just a few of the founders I’ve helped

I am so proud to have served each of these entrepreneurs and to continue our friendship today. Together we’ve built some amazing products that are absolute game changers for customers.

I’ve worked with John in various capacities for almost three years now. He’s my absolute go-to technology developer of choice. I can gush for days about John, but let me tell you the single most important thing that he can do for a client. He will get you live faster and establish real market data which will illuminate what you actually should be building in the second and beyond phases. He will save you money, make you more revenue, and help you build something people actually want.

Investor, BetaBlox Business Incubator

As a non-technical, solo startup founder that knows nothing about tech, it’s been frustrating to deal with unresponsive developers that have poor communication skills…Unlike most devs, John takes pride in helping startup founders build the right solutions that solve their customer’s problems. John will help you plan your MVP and get your app launched as quickly and efficiently as possible!

We cannot begin to thank John enough for all of the effort and transparency provided throughout our development process. He was absolutely phenomenal to work with. He is incredibly professional and his skill set is impressive. We would recommend John to anyone needing a software developer.

App development made for better, faster products

Mobile applications are the premier way for businesses to engage with their customers on the go. Snapping photos, posting quick business updates, and sharing your favorite recipes with the family are all made possible by the power and flexibility of mobile phones.

The question is not, “Do you need a mobile app?”, but “When is the right time to take my business mobile?” And when you’re ready to go mobile I’ve got the perfect options for you.
