I ship. It's one thing to be technically proficient in some platform, language, API, etc. It's much more difficult to have the skills and experience to actual ship a fully functional, polished product.
I bring over 14 years of industry experience to the table, helping clients with project ideation, design, UX, coding, testing, and publishing. I have excellent communication skills and can detail the most intricate software architectures and related issues in plain English.
My primary consulting focus has been on iOS but I am well-versed in a number of platforms, technologies, programming languages, backend devops, APIs, etc. I am a generalist and I adapt well to the problem at hand.

The word "Fictorial" is a portmanteau of the words "factorial" and "pictorial". I combine low level tech work with visual art and animation so it seemed fitting to name the company in this way. The mathematical symbol for factorial is the exclamation mark. That should explain Fictorial's logo (F!).
