About Me

Hello. I’m Hank Brekke, a student at Hudson High in Wisconsin. I aim to change the world through great apps for the web, iPhone, iPad and more. I build apps to help people get their work done faster and easier than ever before using lots of cool languages and tools, including Bootstrap, Node.js, Objective-C, Xamarin, Angular.js and others. You’re welcome to find me on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Forrst, and I also have some projects available on GitHub.

If you think we’d make a great team on your next project, you have a great app idea you want to see finalized, or you just found an issue with something I’ve built, just let me know below. I’d love to hear from you.
