Technology & Expertise

Define Database software is built primarily with FileMaker, a workplace innovation platform owned by Apple. The FileMaker platform allows for apps to be built and deployed in a fraction of the time compared to other technology stacks. Integrations can be built to connect FileMaker to SQL databases, RESTful web services (APIs), IOT devices, and other apps. External-facing components are typically built with Node.js, PHP, and databases including MySQL, MongoDB, FileMaker, and more!

I  have been building FileMaker apps for over 17 years, primarily as an in-house developer at companies I have founded, co-founded, or co-own, including YNOT.

I am a FileMaker Certified Developer in versions 14, 15, 16, and 17 and I have deep experience in business in a variety of roles especially accounting & finance, hiring & training, customer service, and technical support.

I am an expert in FileMaker’s licensing portfolio (User, Concurrent, and Site), and can ensure you have the right license for your situation.

I am ready to tackle your tough business problems!
