I turn your ideas into apps

I help entrepreneurs and ideas-people bring concepts to life by building cost-effective, cross-platform apps that are quick to develop and easy to maintain.As an entrepreneur myself, I understand that you may need help figuring out where to go with an idea or how to turn it into a business. I can help.I use proven, robust, backend technologies like Django and PostgreSQL, and lightweight modern Progressive Web App technologies to make clean and simple apps that users love.

Sample projects


Kava helps users find the best specialty coffee shops through an interactive map.
It has a social media timeline where users can share ratings, images and comments of the coffees they drink with their followers.
Kava has a clean, simple, minimalist design that suits the third-wave coffee industry.
I took Kava from the very initial idea right through to production release as a browser-installable Progressive Web App and subsequent approval as a native app on the App Store and Play Store.Django Python JavaScript PostgreSQL PWA iPhone Android Celery
