About Roy

The quiet guy behind the scenes, building technology cheaply and quickly to find market fit and accelerate revenue.

I work out of both LA and SD.

I work with an existing team I manage that gets "dropped-in" to organizations that need technical help.

I specialize in taking ideas, rapidly prototyping them to go-to-market within 8 - 10 weeks, and continuing the support the technical side of the business (both in terms of a flexible, scalable code base, as well as staffing).

I do not work for equity.
