I’ve worked from home for a decade while building and managing engineering teams of a dozen or more people.

The teams I build have always outperform teams of colocated developers and cost the same or less.

I’ve got the street cred:

  • Quickjack Solutions (My Consultancy)- Built 15 web, mobile and machine learning products for clients around the world. Our team of 9 design/development spanned 6 timezones and we would release the first version of each product within 2 weeks from the start of development.
  • Triage.com - CTO - Managing a team of 13 data scientists, data managers and engineers remotely who worked all over the world.
  • WillowBee.ca - Product/Tech/Marketing, Co-Founder - I designed the most advanced Canadian Will and Testament builder. Our team of 5 is entirely distributed
