Here are some testimonials about me and my work.
I believe Elliot is secretly a robot. I don’t know how he managed to release all the apps he has, continuously iterate on side projects, be a tireless mentor for anyone who needs one, and ship beautiful code for multiple clients simultaneously. He is a 10x developer, and his passion for building things is infectious. Besides being an absolutely prolific developer, Elliot is a wonderful guy to have around, bounce ideas off of, learn from, and work with.
He truly loves writing code and delivering features that users love. I am in awe of his incredible efficiency and focus. Having worked closely with Elliot on developing the iOS app at Trill, Inc. for the last year has been invaluable for my development skills and personal and professional growth. I’m not sure if I consider him to be a better manager or developer, because he excels at both.
Don’t miss the opportunity to show him a massive project, and watch him break it down and give you an expected completion date far in advance. I was particularly impressed by Elliot’s ability to balance time constraints with project expectations, to consistently meet deadlines while shipping clean and robust code. Oh, and no matter how difficult decisions were in meetings, Elliot made sure everyone left with a smile.
One day, I aspire to be half the leader and skilled developer he is. Elliot earns my highest recommendation, and I truly believe anyone will drastically benefit from working with him.
– Heidi Hansen, iOS Developer
Working with Elliot essentially ruined me for all other mobile developers. Finding a developer that can accurately reproduce a design in a technically feasible way is hard to come by, and part of the reason Elliot does a great job is because he understands and values design—he works more as a partner than just a developer.
While working with Elliot at MeYou Health, we worked on an app that had a few complex interactions and animations, and he built all of them quickly and with the utmost quality. If something wasn’t possible due to budget, scope or technical constraints, he always helped me understand why and offered great suggestions for alternative solutions.
Finally, because of Elliot’s knowledge and talent, he spearheaded the MeYou Health mobile dev team. He was a valuable source of guidance and leadership for the entire mobile team. I hope I get to work with him again soon!

Elliot is an excellent engineer, product thinker, and natural team lead. At MeYou Health, he worked with product managers and designers to scope and build out a native iOS application that was a perfect complement to an existing web product. He was a strong advocate for designing beautiful, natural user experiences, and was then able to deliver them with impeccable code and process. He worked with a small team of mobile developers, and was able to improve the quality of the entire team’s work by setting up collaborative processes and winning trust and respect for his expertise. I would highly recommend Elliot.
– Antares Meketa, Head of Product at MeYou Health
Elliot is a fantastic mobile developer, teammate, and team leader. I’ve felt hugely lucky to get to work with him on Trill for the past year and a half. He has a supremely positive attitude, and he is extremely facile with all aspects of mobile development, but what sets him apart is his innate sense of product. Because he has developed and marketed his own apps, as well as worked on large teams, he can effortlessly tap into the end user’s perspective as well as his client’s perspective, and integrate both into efficient code and a beautiful end result.
– Kathleen Stetson, CEO of Trill Inc
I’ve had the good fortune to work with Elliot as a colleague and as a teacher through the Girl Develop It organization. Elliot is an incredibly effective developer that is hardworking and pragmatic. His enthusiasm, expertise, and ability to discuss software in a manner that’s approachable to everyone, make him a remarkable teacher. Given the chance, I would gladly jump at the opportunity to work with Elliot again.
– Stephanie Viccari, Rails Developer
I was fortunate enough to work with Elliot at MeYou Health where he led the way on coding standards and producing quality, reusable code across the iOS team. Watching him work closely with the design team on the Walkadoo iOS app to create an exciting user experience inspired me to improve my collaborative skills. Any development team would greatly benefit from Elliot’s instinct for efficiently building high quality software.
