Hi there!

I'm Bevan. I build ground-breaking web apps for companies and solopreneurs. As a founder myself, I understand the big picture of product strategy, marketing tactics, and usability best practices. I’ll help you ideate, build, and launch a web application that will delight users.

Want to collaborate? Let's talk!

I've made apps for the following companies:

Building projects with meaning:

Peepeth
Social media is toxic and controlled by monopolies. Enter Peepeth, a decentralized social network that encourages mindful discourse & effective altruism.
Peepethintro
Peepeth looks like Twitter. However, this Ruby on Rails app's back-end is decentralized (IPFS+Ethereum). Plus, many features are added to encourage mindful discourse.

Peepethsigning
Peepeth pioneered an innovative signing mechanism that allows users to save data to the blockchain for free (while retaining proof of authorship).
Tweet from the founder of Ethereum.
Peepethmosquitos
Peepeth users can buy a Mosquito badge (which gets displayed on their avatar picture) by donating at least $25 to the Against Malaria Foundation (one of GiveWell's top-rated charities). Together, we've created thousands of QALYs (quality adjusted life-years) by donating to one of the world's most effective charities.
Peepretreat
Peepeth hosted #buidl_bali, a Web3-themed retreat in Bali, Indonesia, for 10 days. (A few of us wanted to remain anonymous, hence the masks!)
Peepethpolitics
Peepeth users are asked to include a "#politics" hashtag with political content, which hides content behind an interstitial.
Peepethtoxicity
Peepeth uses a machine learning model to detect content that may violate the terms of service, and asks users to confirm that their post (a "peep") meets the terms of service.
