testimonials

Will Jensen

My time working with Bryan to build, grow, and sell Fetchh has given me great insight into his abilities as a leader and thinker. Bryan has an ability to develop lean strategies that develop and grow products fast. His ability to iterate makes him an asset to any company and I would jump at the opportunity to work with him again.

Mike Thompson

Bryan has a deep knowledge of re-frame. I worked with him on a port to the JVM, which was a great success. It was also when I was tossing around ideas with Bryan that the concept of reg-sub arrived.
