Recommendations

Steve is a Djangonaut straight out of Miramar. He's been the bedrock of our development team since YunoJuno was barely out of short trousers, and it's largely thanks to his efforts that we are about to take over the world. Please don't hire him though - we need him.

Hugo Rodger-Brown, Co-Founder and CTO at YunoJuno

I've worked with Steve on several projects for which he was either project manager or project manager and developer. He consistently gives 100% and takes on real ownership of the project deliverables. He's a great guy to work with and I look forward to hiring him again.

James Webster, Virtual CTO for hire. Founder SheepCRM.com

Steve worked with us for several months in a freelance capacity to re-build our online karaoke streaming service from the ground up. During that period, and well beyond, Steve not only built robust, complex software, but approached the task with a level of care, diligence and emotional investment that I wouldn’t always get from a full-time employee. He is clear-thinking, supremely amiable and extremely capable.
