Who Am I:
Founder/CEO of Available App

Background:
I have been working in the film industry as a lighting tech since 2004. I worked on over 500 film projects from student film to Hollywood Blockbuster. I experience the industry problems first hand. Through filming, it enhanced my management and logistic skills. I also majored in CIS before switched to film major during my college year.
I have deep knowledge of the freelance industry and the users.
In 2015, I came up with this idea to solve one of the major problem freelancer dealing with daily, employment. Although, I m a non-technical founder, but it didn't stop me from moving forward. I bootstrapped Available App from MVP to beta version and now with 550+ users within 3 months.
