I founded Creative Cretin in 2016 when I noticed an absence in the number of creative uses for software and technology in the daily lives of those around me.
The software can be used to achieve great advancements and simplify complex tasks and problems. Yet, in an overwhelming number of cases, it remains relegated to mundane routines and background scenarios. I intend to create software and technological products that will bring creativity and ingenuity to a field typified by the simple utility.
I am a skilled software producer and systems engineer, but I have always felt there is a gap between what I am able to produce and the people I am able to serve.
I started my company to forge a bridge between technical production and creative innovation in the consumer space. After four years of product development and market testing, I am now ready to bring my first wide-use commercial product to market.
My goal is to work with community colleges to offer solutions to students to help them take better notes and create lasting memories with a combination of ink, paper, software, and mobile hardware. Helping students and young artists is just one way I plan to bring new opportunities to a less technical community.
Creative Cretin arose from the need to constantly want to push the boundaries that most stable (sane) companies probably would not want to approach. I guess we’re sort of out to upset an otherwise comfortable software industry. The company also serves as a lab of sorts for trying out new concepts the founder finds interesting.
