Mobile Consultant

The mobile app industry is growing at an unprecedented pace... Barely keeping up or are you leveraging all the opportunities it brings?

If you made it this far I know you have motivation, enthusiasm and drive. However, you will need a mobile consultant like me by your side to fully reap all the benefits of what technology has to offer.

Until not long ago, iPhone apps were like the very first websites: in a world where websites were few and far between, just having one was enough.  It wasn't particularly challenging to be a player in the mobile app development game without much competition. Now, as the market becomes more saturated, it is increasingly difficult to stand out from the crowd.

My years of experience in the field, combined with my MBA and business savvy, make me a shrewd ally to anyone looking to make their mark in the mobile world.

I live in San Francisco, the epicenter of the startup boom.  While I've seen some amazing concepts come to life, I've chosen not to get involve in revenue sharing, equity or similarly structured projects. Instead, I lend my technical and business know-how to early stage startups and established brands as a mobile consultant.
