MY PROCESS
1
Wireframing
Every project is different, but once the strategy has been firmed up, I usually begin by wireframing the core user interface. This includes navigation, flows between views, and the impact of different screen sizes. I like to do this on paper or with software like Balsamiq.
2
Design
For the design phase, I draw on my experience leading product at Concert Window, a live broadcasting platform with 150,000 users. I strive for simplicity, beauty, and intuitiveness. One thing I love to do is creating interfaces for completely new activities; I also love adapting and polishing. I usually do designs in Sketch.
3
Development
This is the real meat of the process, and one of the benefits of doing everything under one roof. The development phase joins a unified flow with wireframing, design, testing, and launch, and I can revisit the other phases as necessary. I usually build apps in React Native, which enables cross-platform releases for iOS and Android smartphones + tablets.
4
Testing
Testing is when a good product becomes a great product. During this phase I iron out bugs, polish animations and interface, and conduct extensive cross-platform testing. I also like to do a beta program, which can be good for validating pricing and other pre-launch decisions.
5
Launch
In addition to being a satisfying and exciting moment, launch is also important to get right. I do the advance planning to ensure a smooth rollout on the app stores. I'm also happy to brainstorm on successful strategies that I've used in the past to generate millions of dollars in product revenues.
ABOUT ME
I'm a programmer with a design and entrepreneurial background. Before I started building apps, I founded a company called Concert Window which grew to over 150,000 users and generated millions of dollars in revenue. I'm also a musician with four albums under my belt. I love building and launching new things into the world, and these days I'm using my experience in technology and startups to help build great products.
