I began my journey during the dot-com boom of the 90s when I started my own Technology Consulting company after graduating Delaware Valley University with a degree in Computer Information Systems Management in 1998. Currently, I am the CEO & Cofounder for Instamour, an innovative mobile video messaging platform based out of Philadelphia (we are fundraising). I am excited to announce that Instamour graduated the 10 week StartFast Venture Accelerator program in August of 2014. I am an avid volunteer for the Philadelphia tech community as a videographer and photographer for Philly New Technology Meetup, StartupGrind (Google Entrepreneurs), Tech in Motion Events, the PSL Bootcamp series (Philly Startup Leaders), and until it ended in 2013: Philly Tech Meetup (PTM). As a contributor for Technically Philly, I write about the thriving Philadelphia tech scene with a focus on startups as well as lead a new interview video series called Startup Sitdown. I love to mentor other tech startups, college students and business owners on how to succeed which led me to create a How To Video Series hosted on my Blog and Youtube. Also, I'm an avid supporter of virtual currency such as Bitcoin and have created a microsite to teach others and spread awareness.
My past achievements include winning the Audience Choice award at the 2011 New Hope Film Festival for my independent film as well as landing a distribution deal. I'm also a published author as well as a classically trained violinist and was an established music producer in the late 90's. I've traveled the world extensively and have started over 10 companies since 1996 with a successful exit of my brick & mortar franchise in 2012. I love culture, languages, cooking, film, music, art, and my Shih Tzu Wolfgang. I'm an experienced graphic designer and have created hundreds of unique designs for websites and mobile apps along with developing the functionality to help bring them to life. Feel free to check out my tech resume here, writing resume here, and film resume here. Lastly, I write entrepreneurial articles about technology innovation for the Examiner.

Whether it's web or mobile design & development, HD video content, growth hacking or social media, contact me for info on how I can help your tech startup!
I am extremely responsive to your needs and deadlines. I never say a project is complete until you are 100% satisfied with the final result. I make myself available via phone, email, Skype, and in person meetings as often as you need. You shouldn't have to wait for someone for weeks just to get back to you. I pride myself in fast response times to keep you updated on the progress of your project.
I have been running businesses since 1998 and have personally been a part of every aspect of each business whether it was daily operations, financial, marketing, legal, development, design, manufacturing, or managing teams and employees. Furthermore, I have successfully exited from my brick & mortar franchise that I started in 2006 and sold in 2012, so I know a thing or two about physical businesses as well.
Once I get an idea of what the scope of your project is, you will find that my prices are extremely competitive with the industry that it lies in. Whether you need HD video & editing, a new website or mobile app, graphic design, or help with your business, I will work with your budget.
Same thing applies to your mobile app idea. I can take your rough idea and get a prototype built for you so that you can see how it would work. Then we could discuss your color scheme, and what style of design you'd like to implement. Because I have built various sites and apps, I know what to do, and what not to do. How to save you time, and money for the life of your app.
I have led teams in four tech startups over the past several years, and with my current tech startup was able to acquire seed funding to take things to the next level. I am in charge of everything from development, marketing, growth hacking, analyzing data, social media content, blogging, financial projections, PowerPoint presentations, investor decks, business plan, executive summary, investment summary, and much more.
One of the reasons tech startups like to work with me is because not only am I local, but they can get many things done at once with my skillset. I am open to both salary and equity in any company I work with. I don't like to see it as a job, but more of a team effort. Feel free to contact me for information on how we can work together in helping your tech startup thrive!
My love for film inevitably caused me to start Delphia Entertainment. By unleashing my creativity, I have successfully filmed celebrity interviews, music videos, web series, short films, and full length feature films. Along with my extensive arsenal of equipment, I also own and operate a full service film editing & music recording studio. If you are seeking professional yet affordable film services don't hesitate to contact my film company.
With my talented team backing me up, there is nothing that we can't produce. We have been widely accepted as a Philadelphia name in the film industry and our current film The Bucks County Massacre has won the Audience Choice Award at the 2011 New Hope Film Festival and is currently being distributed. You can see my film reel here.
I've always had a great eye when it comes to taking pictures. But taking pictures is only a part of photography. Just because you have a camera doesn't mean you are a photographer. I have done photography for special events, birthdays, weddings, private sessions, family portraits, headshots, landscapes, pets, and much more.
I take great care in giving you a variety of looks and feels to your photos, so that you aren't left with a pile of photos that looks the same. I have an artistic approach to my methods, and it shows in the overall product that you will receive when you hire me. You can see some of my albums here.
