Over the past seven plus years, my life has largely revolved around startups. I've been fortunate enough to witness the successes and failures of dozens of early-stage companies first-hand, as both an employee and an external contractor.
I've also founded and co-founded a number of my own startups and product businesses along the way. The first mildly successful venture was Enpose – a screenshot API, which I sold in 2018.
A lot of my time at these companies saw me procuring services from agencies, freelancers and the like to do the work our small, time-poor internal teams couldn't handle, however I found most vendors just couldn't keep up. This lead me to found Never Before Seen in late 2018, a product design studio working exclusively with early and growth stage startups, and tailored specifically to their needs. Currently, this is where I spend most of my time.
I also run a small web design agency called Sitemill (now operating as a part of Never Before Seen) which actually began in 2015, yet still serves a small cohort of ecommerce brands and small businesses.
