Who is this guy?
I am a freelance web developer and consultant currently based in Vancouver, B.C.
After touching a computer for the first time 6 years ago and discovering the internet,
I have been pursuing my interest of developing for the web.
Since then, I've worked with many software development companies, consulting firms,
creative studios, and even individuals. I look to establish an amiable professional
relationship with my clients, and to maintain that relationship for as long as we see fit.
Some of you may know me as the co-founder of Windows7Center.com and Windows8Center.com,
which I worked on from 2008 to 2011. Or you may know me from various conferences such as
DefCon, Blackhat, or Google I/O. Or even further back, from the few popular forums I had the pleasure of moderating.
If you're looking to work with me, you should probably know about the experiences of clients
who have already done so. Take a look below.
What my clients say:
“When I look for a developer, I’m looking for someone who’s highly intelligent,
able to turn a hand to anything, and is not afraid to point out
flaws or try to improve something. Jay is brilliant at spotting problems
before they exist and pulling in his experience and putting it
to work on your project. His work ethic and dedication is second
to none. I’d recommend Jay to anyone.”
“Jay is an excellent programmer. He proved to quickly understand the business
drivers and developed applications to meet our needs with little of the usual
specification detail required by most developers. He’s independent and takes
a great deal of pride in his work as was evident by his continued strive
to improve system performance. It was a pleasure to work with him.”
“We asked Jay to come train our Denver staff on some security best practices
after he demonstrated an exploit in our online billing system. Despite being
quite young, he has delivered better results than many of our previous consultants
and has been a pleasure to work with.”
“Our team has been working with Jay for almost 7 months. His high attention to detail and understanding
of the business has made him one of our most valued consultants. Jay worked on several projects during
the year, but I was most impressed by his work leading our team to re-design and turn our website fully
mobile-compatible. While on this project, Jay was efficient and comfortable both as an independent
developer and member of a large cross functional team as he drove features and requirements. He also
produced high quality code, within the scope and schedule of the project.”
“Jay is bar none the best web consultant I've had the pleasure of working with.
I can't say enough about how happy we are with the quality of his work on our website.
We often had projects with unreasonably short turnaround times, but Jay always managed to take care of everything.
Above all, he's a great communicator and a pleasure to work with.”
“Jay did excellent work on a recent project for us. His development skills are exceptional
and he delivered way ahead of schedule on what was already a tight timeline. Finally, he
took the time to understand our business, and used his development skills to locate and fix
issues we were unaware of previously. I highly recommend him and will hire him again.”
“We threw Jay into something he had never seen before and asked him to develop detailed
technical recommendations within a day or so. He reviewed our workflow and business, developed
a thorough plan for implementation, and made sure our executive team was aware of any implications
and trade-offs. Great job.”
