Bio

How do you get what you want rather than what you asked? How do you build your product but not spend a fortune in doing so while giving it the highest chance of success?

 

I ask the WHY questions and build your product in steps - building only what is required - to test the next idea. The software methodologies and languages I use assume that change is inevitable, which minimises the impact of these changes.

 

Teams have come to me looking for help with all aspects of development; from the initial concept, right through to launching, and to handling any growing pains that often come with success.I have written software for ANZ, Tourism New Zealand, Consumer NZ, Chrysler and a number of startups.
