So, what am I doing now?
Blah blah blah. What does that actually mean? It means that I can take your abstract ideas and wrap them all nice and cozy in a warm blanket of mobile app code that makes it possible for anyone, anywhere to use your app. I build it 'once' and it runs 'almost everywhere'!
I have 4 very personal mobile applications in development right now. You can see more from the Current Projects tab. I could use some help, so if any of those projects are interesting to you, contact me using the link at the top of this page.
Sym Edge Creative
The name of my first web design business
When I left California to live in Missouri, I soon realized I was completely out of my element, having lived in sunny California my entire life. My professional future looked bleak because there wasn't anything even resembling a "Silicon Valley' in St. Louis.
I considered coming back to California but as I struggled to find a new career path, I stumbled upon an opportunity to start a little business. The idea was kickstarted by my chance encounter with the CEO of the largest Gymnastics School in the St. Louis area. Called Olympiad Gymnastic, they had 5 locations that each needed a unique web presence.
Soon I was one man doing the work of 5 people and enjoying every second!
So I decided to stay and build my design and web application business. It was called Sym Edge Creative and it became the third highest ranked design shop in less than 2 years. It seemed I'd found my passion!
Yooristic and The Human Relationship Genome Project
After moving back to California I began work on a new social media concept called FaceFirst.us with my older brother. A match-making web application that put Face-to-Face interaction back into the Relationship Equation.
FaceFirst.us leads to the founding of Yooristic.com, a social networking hub that takes social interactions and digs out the relevant data and builds a big picture of a persons relationships with other people. Yooristic is still growing and will soon be unleashed on the world!
After a time, I filled any extra time in my day and offered consulting services for various local companies. This helped me cement my education and apply my skill in a practical arena. In real time. With all types of high level business people.
I learned important Social Dynamics that have helped me to this very day. Now I feel comfortable around high level people.
I've been involved with many different start-ups even as I continue to build Yooristic.com and my personal site.
Yes, you can hire me!
