Hi! I'm Ian and I build apps that help entrepreneurs succeed.
I started programming at age 12 with simple game development using a visual programming language known as MMF2. It taught me the basics but the language is juvenile compared to most others so I eventually graduated to Java where I honed my skills a bit more.
I built nothing of note until I picked up web technologies (JS, HTML, CSS) and eventually Node.js where I began building my first successful project Somiibo: a social media automation platform. Somiibo was launched on November 20th, 2017, and would change everything for me.
The project took off with tens of thousands of signups and a few thousand paying users in just the first few months. I decided it was time to get serious so I started a company called ITW Creative Works to act as the parent company to Somiibo as well as all future projects.
After that, our company began building a diverse set of apps and tools including:
I now run the company as my full-time job and manage the development of all of the above projects. At our company, we are constantly innovating and creating new things that make the world a better place and we have so much fun doing it!
Thanks for taking a second to hear my story and I hope we inspire you to build something great too!
