I help entrepreneurs build apps that make money

Launch your app faster, with the right features, and happy customer’s eager to buy.

Here’s how I make you 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.


4. Sell it

Because we took the time to validate your idea up front you now have happy customer’s eager to buy.

Conversion rates are high, users love the app, and you can confidently plan for the next phase of your empire.


Here’s how I’ve helped founders just like you

Nobody is as honest (good or bad) as the clients you have helped in the past. I am proud to have served each of these entrepreneurs and to continue our friendship today.

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.

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.

Your Story

One thing that is becoming more and more fascinating to me is the concept of an individual's story. Yesterday I sat down with a friend after a photoshoot. I was still feeling a bit uneasy. You could say that I'm not exactly a photogenic person. It just makes me feel...

I've been watching a few self-improvement classes lately. One, in particular, focuses on how self-confidence and self-doubt stop us from ever achieving our dreams. What has stood out to me the most is how the instructor defines confidence. Most us, myself included,...
