Hi, I'm James.  

My specialty is helping entrepreneurs who have a vision for a technology product turn their ideas into reality.

My background is in bootstrapping companies and, when appropriate, raising venture capital.  See my portfolio for more.

My method is holistic, ensuring founders are well informed of the trade-offs that come with most product decisions.  I help teams make smart decisions about "fast, right or cheap" as they pertain to both short- and long-term goals.

My strengths are building mobile and web applications.  I especially enjoy rapid prototyping, with an eye towards future system performance, scalability and infrastructure costs.

My biggest weakness is graphic design, so I don't build graphically-intense games and I enlist outside help with web and graphic design when a founder doesn't have a strong vision in these areas.

My compensation is equity, so that I'm perfectly aligned with the founders.
