About John

My last gig was a startup studio with a couple of other partners. Launched a couple of projects and after four years we went our separate ways. I love going from idea, to whiteboard to getting something out the door. I'm skilled across the entire stack and make systems that run themselves. I've been CTO/VPE of several companies over the years. I love to program, and I'll never stop. I'm looking for a business savvy partner who can compliment my technical expertise. I can pretty much build anything,

I'm looking for a non-stop business person who can succeed and will do whatever it takes to get that next customer or user.

Also looking for a UX/UI person who can make my ugly shit pretty. And more importantly understands how to drive users to actionability and makes them happy.

If you want to build something big, then we should talk.

Please note: I am not looking to take over for your offshore/contractor so you can have a non-paid full stack developer for some small amount of equity. I'm looking for a partner.
