<aside> 🏁 I leverage tech to help small businesses transition into high-growth companies.
Hi, Callan here 👋. I am a results driven Systems Engineer, CTO and longtail Strategist with more than a decade worth of technical experience and more than half a decade advising or running teams varying from a handful of members, to hundreds.
While on this journey I noticed the focus of driven leaders quickly jumps from an idea for a product or solution right to implementation. While velocity is useful, the risk of making that jump without proper scoping and experience causes costs to triple, the end result to miss its mark, and leadership wondering where it all went wrong.
Software is complex. Talk to someone who’s been in your shoes.
By way of consulting, I have been exposed to all manner of industries, business models, roles and modes of thinking. If you introduce me to something new, I will do a deep dive into your industry and business to see what makes it tick. Thats what makes this work special. There are always new problems to solve.

From idea to implementation, harnessing the technology available to founders today is overwhelming and riddled with pitfalls. Luckily we've done it all before. So whats stopping you from making the leap?
