Hi, I’m Paul Mestemaker.

I am based in San Francisco and run CleverPoint, a technology consulting firm.

Quick rundown of who I am:

Born and raised in the midwest.

I started my first business when I was 15 as a full-stack engineer building web applications for Fortune 500 companies.

Worked at Microsoft for 7 years.

Spent the last couple of years learning how to build mobile apps (Objective-C/Cocoa Touch), web apps (Ruby on Rails, Postgres/MySQL), internet marketing (SEO, email marketing), and analytics (Conversion rate optimization, funnel analysis, cohort analysis with tools like Google Analytics, MixPanel, and custom built solutions made by me).

I used to co-host a weekly tech news show.

I blog.

You can find me on Twitter and Facebook.

I have occasionally performed standup comedy.

I’m available for about 4 speaking gigs at conferences and colleges/universities per year.  I can talk about all sorts of topics: the importance of metrics, product management, entrepreneurship, the balance of tech and business, and more. Some of my favorite gigs have been: University of Michigan and MIT’s Sloan School of Business.
