Awesome clients I've worked with: 

When you hire John, you don’t just get a programmer, you get a programmer that is genuinely interested in solving product problems. I would gladly work on more projects with him and highly recommend him.

John is one of a kind. He is a true lean startup entrepreneur who can design as well as he can code as well as he gets in front of customers to understand what they want. His attitude is more impressive than his skills. He finds a way forwards with a smile, always.
