Hi I'm Scott


I build full-stack Web and Mobile apps.

16 years experience

I create apps and cloud platforms for startups and small businesses - both my own companies, and others'. Because I've operated my own startups, I understand how software will accelerate your business goals.

There’s a growing amount of noise in the JavaScript world about all the ways of building a web app – my goal is to cut through that and help you laser focus on only what matters most: a well engineered product.


Life is short. Build things that matter.

Do it with passion, conviction, and style.


My Tools

2000px-Node.js_logo.svg.png

Node.js Back end

I've built backends with Perl, PHP, and Ruby in the past. While I stay familiar with these languages, I have a strong preference for Node.

Full stack web apps with Express, Socket.io (WebSockets with XHR fallback), Passport.js, OAuth (Facebook/Twitter sign in). Databases including RethinkDB, MongoDB, and Redis. Tools including, Gulp, NPM, ESLint, and Sublime Text. API development and integration.

React.js Front end

Having grown up with JavaScript, well before jQuery came into the picture, I've become familiar with Backbone, Angular, and most recently React. For the past few years, I've worked solely with React by choice. 

React.js, Reflux (preferred), Flux, and JSX markup. Bootstrap, Semantic-UI, and Material UI. Require.js and Browserify, Superagent and Socket.io. CSS and SASS. jQuery, of course. Packaging into iOS and Android with Cordova.

iOS / Objective-c

I have 7 years of extensive experience with Xcode, CoreData, Interface Builder, and all major iOS APIs. In 2010, I built and grew an iPad app to 1MM users, before selling it 3 years later.

Objective-C and C, InterfaceBuilder, Storyboards, CoreData, Instruments, XCTest, OpenGLES Drawing, NSThread, Interfacing with REST APIs.


Mentorship Consulting

Need some Help Building an App yourself?

Many of my clients are self-taught engineers themselves, working hard to build their own apps! Rather than spend hours watching videos, and reading indecipherable tutorials about how to incorporate an immutable state store like Redux into your React app, get laser focused guidance! I'll dive into your code base over Hangouts, show you step-by-step about how to learn the latest web technologies, and ensure your app will survive launch day and scaling. Do you really want to trust all your hard work and long nights to StackOverflow snippets?
