For every 15 minutes
Known to solve problems and turn clients into super heroes. My clients want to grow their businesses and expand the reach of their non-profits. They have concrete problems like how to boost revenue 20% and abstract problems like how to help their employees become more engaged. I bring them solutions. Sometimes this just means donuts. The rest of the time it means an understanding of their challenges, a clear roadmap for getting from the status quo to a brighter future, and a technological solution to make that roadmap a reality. And all with a toolbox full of open source tools like Python, Django, and PostgreSQL. And sometimes donuts.
