I'm the co-founder of V88. Our focus is to build the highest quality, most reliable and most beautiful apps for growing businesses. I have extensive experience working with clients to understand their needs and translating them into solutions that make a real difference. It's impossible to build the optimal solution if you don't really understand your client's vision so I just keep asking questions until I do. Whilst my background includes maths, physics and many years of software design, today I work almost entirely with Glide and Integromat (as a companion technology in certain circumstances). It's amazing what you can build with these tools at a fraction of the cost of more traditional methods. There's no charge whatsoever for an initial chat so give me a call or drop me a message anytime.


Certified Experts have a proven track record of delivering professional app projects on time. All kickoff calls are 15 minutes long and a $20 deposit is required.
