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.

Engineering runs in his blood. . Seriously, his dad is an engineer too. Lives by the beach so that can’t hurt. Is high on AI. He loves Google AI as well as IBM Watson AI. He’s probably stopped waking up from nightmares of me asking him for another NUnit test.
Elivs rocks .NET in spanish. We help each other improve our coding skills as well as help sharpen our language skills. My Spanish is way better & his English is too.
Fresh blood. He made it through his 1st trials & has moved on to level 2. Can make your wordpress site look like you want it to. Very important when you’re paying for it.
Fresh blood. He made it through his 1st trials & has moved on to level 2. If you have a crazy wordpress plugin that you need to spend 4 years in a university to get to work just ask Juan to look at it.
Fresh blood. We have to wait until after prom for him to work full time . . . & then in between college classes, but if you want to know about the status of the items on your kanban board just ask him.
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.

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.

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.
