Hi, I’m Paul Mestemaker.
I have recently relocated from Los Angeles to San Francisco to help early stage startups launch their MVPs and solicit feedback through usability studies and instrumenting live site and app metrics. My former business partner is turning Mythly Studios into Kite and Lightning. They will be doing some cool stuff with motion capture, augmented reality, and virtual reality.
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 have occasionally performed standup comedy.
I’m available for speaking gigs at conferences and colleges/universities. I can talk about all sorts of topics: the importance of metrics, product management, entrepreneurship, the balance of tech and business, and more.
