How can I help?

I build technology to transform and bring clarity to your business. This is how I can help you.

  • Business Technology StrategyAvailable

    Your technology strategy is not agnostic of your business. I help you identify the right technology to use for your business case(s) — whether it is a website, mobile app, DTC via Shopify, social etc. Choosing the right strategy will set you apart from your competition

  • Software development

    As a software engineer, my focus is predominately on front end interfaces. I have coupled my experience in UX, Mobile development and full stack development to produce user friendly digital products.

  • Product strategyAvailable

    Building digital products requires critical thinking in not only how it is created but what is created. A product strategy is a framework for creating software/digital products. It compromises of discovery, ideation, customer & software development.

Some kind words

Steven is ridiculously smart, kind and talented. No matter how tense a meeting, Steven makes sure everyone leaves with a smile. Steven has the ability to see the small details as well as the big picture, mix that with the rare combination of head and heart and you've got yourself one of the good ones. I believe he would be an asset to any team.

I was lucky to work with Steven for almost 18 months at Yoco. The one thing that stands out to me about Steven was his ability to understand a product, how that product fits into a market, and how customers might receive or use that product. The questions he would ask as we built software products were incredibly insightful, and they often resulted in us making conscious changes or additions to the features we were building. I can recommend Steven for any future role he applies for.
