About Sam

I have thirteen years' experience building scalable web products. My specialty is combining Lean Startup methods and Agile development to carefully balance business model testing with rapid implementation. I am familiar with all modern web toolkits and frameworks, and excited about getting my hands dirty in the code, and also helping to recruit and build the product team.
