S3 E13: Dean McPherson, Paperform

Dean McPherson - you guessed it... has always been interested in tech. Though unlike many of our guests, he taught himself how to code after he finished his degree program in music and philosophy. And then - he sold his way into a jr. programming job. Prior to his current venture, he spent several years doing mobile and full stack development for a couple of companies.

He has a small family - 2 little boys - and his wife is not only his partner in life, but in business as well. He loves the idea of fishing - but doesn't really go much. And, he is a well rounded musician, but most interestingly.. he plays the didgeridoo. I can only imagine this at parties.

In 2013, Dean's friend asked him to build a registration form for his business. He was baffled that he would ask for something like this, given there are solutions out there for this sort of thing. However, after searching for options - he couldn't find anything to recommend. In 2016, he and his wife set out to build something to solve this problem - something easy to use, doesn't require coding, and offers a well rounded, branded solution.

This is the creation story of Paperform.
