I’ve been building web applications since 1999, successfully completing projects for business of every size – from Fortune 500s on down to Mom-and-Pop shops.
My primary reputation is as an expert in handling crisis projects and difficult clients. In addition to authoring this software industry blog, I’ve been published in Software Development Magazine (now Dr. Dobbs).
Here are my primary work projects:
Recently, I authored a book entitled RECORD & RELEASE: Learn How To Podcast In Just One Day. This book explains how to start your very own podcast quickly and easily as a means to help you gain status and notoriety as a subject-matter authority, and effectively build an audience by reaching your entire market. Courses on podcasting often start at $100 and go up from there, but with the help of this inexpensive guide, it’s easy & affordable to get started.
Day-to-day, most of my time is spent managing Cogeian Systems, a custom web development and web design consulting firm that I founded in 2003. Via Cogeian, I’ve rescued dozens of failing software projects and have helped businesses of all sizes to create custom web applications.
After 10+ years in the consulting industry, I’ve decided to apply all of my app-development and project-management experience to developing SmallSpec, a software product that helps consultants and freelancers create simple, painless functional specification documents.
My most recent project is the Chasing Product podcast – the podcast chronicles my bootstrapped software product development experience for the benefit of other would-be entrepreneurs, while calling upon established bootstrapped software product veterans to share lessons on how to do it right – and how to know when you’re doing it wrong!
