You’re interested in working with me?
I’m looking forward to meeting you, learning more about what you do, and figuring out how I can help.
Before we do that, I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself and the sort of projects I like to work on. That’ll save both of us time by making sure we’re a good fit.
I like to work closely with individual freelancers and independent consultants. I’m most useful at helping people turn their expertise into a product for their existing clients.
I’m good at:
- Taking a general idea or concept for a project and then shaping it into an actual product. This often means clarifying what the point of the project is, breaking it down into all of its features and then understanding which bits are the most important to work on first. I do my best to explain the tradeoffs around different kinds of decisions where I can.
- Designing and building a simple and easy-to-use interface. If you don’t know how you want your product to look, I can propose a clear outline of the design that will focus on making the core purpose of the application obvious. If you have detailed designs for an application I am more than happy to follow them instead. However, I encourage testing mockups of any design with real users before and after they are implemented to make sure that they work the way we expect them to.
- Taking care of all the extra stuff like analytics, tracking retention, setting up payments, a mailing list, rich snippets for SEO, etc. Rather than having to shop around for multiple professionals to get the job done I can help cover all of the details necessary to design, build and launch a product. Then you can find a specialist if you want to focus in on a specific aspect of your product. I’m happy to recommend people if I can.
I will only work directly with the founder. I enjoy collaborating with other freelancers but I refuse to work with middle management.
Building a product from scratch takes about 2 months to build and costs roughly $20,000. It can be done faster and for cheaper if you already have a clear sense of what you want to build.
I am currently taking bookings for September 2020.
The easiest way to get started is by having a conversation.
I will listen to what you want to do and honestly tell you if its something I can help with. If it’s not I’ll do my best to connect you to someone who can.

After a consultation, if we think we are a good fit for each other, I begin a project by putting a proposal together.
I may need to ask you a few follow-up questions about the project before I begin. We can do this over a short Skype conversation or by email.
Once I have understood what needs to be done, my proposal will outline how I can help solve your problem, what you options are, what my solution could look like, how much it will cost and how long it will take.
Here are some examples of some of past proposals:
- This is a proposal for a polling application
- This is a design proposal for a wildlife souvenir shop
- This is a redesign proposal for a commitment application
Each proposal is unique but I usually include a wire flows for the entire system so that you can see how many screens there are and how they connect to each other, wireframes for one or two pages and then the final design of one screen so that you can picture how it would look and feel.
Proposals cost $1200 and they take 10 days to 2 weeks to develop.
The reason I charge for proposals is that they are a lot of work. Moreover, they are not templates, they are custom solutions to each project I work on.
