About

Our Story

How we define ourselves

We are relationship people

Out client’s don’t get lost in the bureaucracy of a large agency. We are big enough to bring new innovations to the table, yet small enough to manage our relationships very closely and provide the flexibility that larger agency’s can’t afford.

We are excited by what technology can do

Out engagement starts when we first get on the phone with you and will end long after our initial project is completed. The boutique in our consultancy refers to the white glove treatment we like to show our clients.

We understand how a business runs

In today’s tech world it’s not the large against the small, it’s the fast against the slow. Let us help you bring your solutions to market with the velocity that can only be obtained with a small to midsize team.

Our network of friends

The word networking has a very negative perception for most people

You can imagine some guy shaking your hand, smiling, and marking you down in a Rolodex somewhere as merely another asset to tap someday. While there are people out there that match this mold, the truth is that actual relationships with people are a big key to success, and it’s also true that most people simply aren’t very good at quickly building mutually beneficial relationships with others. It’s not easy to put all your cards on the table and risk the scrutiny of the unknown.

We only work with our trusted network, so we're always looking to add someone talented to the mix.

Our basic premise is that real networking is about making other people more successful. We can all think back to the individuals who helped us succeed. I guarantee those relationships are built on trust and authenticity. We provide the same authenticity and honesty to everyone in our network .. . the highschool student getting ready to face the world, the self conscious software engineer who’s primary language is not English, or the CSuite exec that has been paying dues for 40 years to build something amazing.

Yes he’s my brother, but he’s also a pretty smart guy. I would list all the financial software certifications, but that would bore you guys.

Diego Lavia

Diego Lavia

Software Developer & Technology Consultant

He used to be listed in the team section for a few years, but he was just too good to hold on to and his desire to build his own agency and products sent him and his tight crew of developers on their own path to blaze new trails.

He’s one of the few engineers that I’ve seen make that transition successfully and is one of the few engineers outside of my crew that I would trust to keep my reputation untarnished.

Primitive Spark

Digital product design inspired by humans. The crew at p* are some pretty inspiring humans as well.

My best attempt at describing what p* is … “The crossroads of beauty, technology, and the understanding of your end users physche”

Ask them to sprinkle some purple pixie dust on your next technology project.

Their moto is “Payments made easy”, but that is a bit of an understatement. There are quite a few companies who can already do that for you, but not too many can provide the white glove treatment of structuring an underwriting agreement which supports reducing your customer accounts receivables from 200 days to 30 days, beats out the big dogs in ACH transaction rates,keeps your risk to a minimum, and helps you identify it was your customers commercial bank whose fraud algorithm was at fault for declining a large transaction incorrectly.

Digital Forensics Corp

Digital Forensics Corp
