Everything I've created for the last decade is made up of ones and zeros and ceases to exist when electricity isn't available. This ephemeral nature of my life's work is the reason J. Stark was born. I had the desire to create tangible goods of a timeless aesthetic by hand with a focus on sourcing materials from the United States at every opportunity.
For the last 16 years I have been building software for the web and desktop. The challenge of a problem and the opportunity to help someone’s idea succeed are the reasons I love building. I founded Steadybuilt so I can help clients focus on their customers, services, and products. If they can focus on these things it gives their idea the best chance at success.
There’s a resurgence of makers here in the United States who are also technically savvy. I created Cartly as a way for these makers to keep as much profit as they can from their goods in an effort to help fuel this movement. If you have something to sell and are tired of paying monthly fees for your store on top of high transaction fees, Cartly was made for you.
