I'm Justin, an app designer and developer. Most recently, I was a product designer at Pinterest. I worked there for four years and built all sorts of products, but most recently I've been working on my own app called Maitsu.



Maitsu helps you make something new every week. It's about helping people learn new skills and make things that they're proud of. If you've ever struggled to finish a side project, this could be the app for you!

I've been self-funding for two years now and it'd be nice to have some help in terms of money and manpower. I'd like to offset some of my current burn, and maybe have some income to hire help in the form of illustrators and engineers.

Thanks for stopping by! Whether you can help or not, make time to keep making cool things!
