About Barry

I'm a Creative Director/ UI/UX Visual Designer. I've worked in the Mobile App, Advertising, Entertainment industries. Currently the Creative Director/Director of Creative Services at PCM (www.pcm.com). Prior I owned an advertising agency for 12 years. Understand business models and the startup process. Worked at a number of startups, both with and without funding.

My current project is an iOS and Android app. It's the video version of a card you pass around for everyone to sign. Think Snapchat meets Hallmark. Grouped micro-videos.

The apps are live, but strictly an MVP. Way more on the roadmap, but needed to start somewhere.

I'm looking for someone with development chops to update the apps (have to the code for iOS, Android and backend Rails) so it can move on to the next stage.

Based on user feedback and market opportunities, I've updated the UI/UX and direction of the app.

I work hard and have a true passion for the projects I work on. I'm willing to work long hours. I'm very focused, too. I only want people that bring those same characteristics to the party.

I'm only looking for an individual as a cofounder, not someone's services. Do NOT offer me any type of services.
