Greg Goforth

Co-Founder, CTO of Bitwise Industries

I started my software development career in 2008 after dabbling in web design for a few years while working on my music degree. My dad and I started a company, called Pencil’em, that helped the beauty industry schedule and book appointments.  My mom, one of our first users of the application, said it was great. So we had that going for us. After Pencil’em, I went to work for Decihper Inc, where I worked as a software developer until 2014.

In 2015 I joined Bitwise and helped design the Geekwise Academy Cohort program.  It was at Bitwise that I crossed paths with Channelle Charest. Channelle was a highly sought-after tattoo artist, joining as the Bitwise evangelist. After getting 2 tattoos by Channelle, she mentioned a huge need to help manage her tattoo bookings. We arrived at the idea of building an application to do just that.

Tatstat was quite literally built by tattoo artists, for tattoo artists. It’s our goal to ensure that the app blends seamlessly into your day to day, saving you time and letting you focus on the art.
