Josh Dechant.

I'm a dad living in Kansas and a full stack web and mobile developer. I design and build both simple and complicated websites, mobile applications, and games. I also created a series of books with my daughter. I can design and build your idea with a custom back-end, integrate other services like Facebook or Google Maps, and help you market it.

I created a children's book with my daughter. I did have some artists working on the initial project, but I ended up re-illustrating the whole thing, and then drawing a second book of the collection from scratch. This has become one of my favorite things to do.
