$61,000 is his gross. I wonder what his expenses were (to get to his net)? Unless he lives in Montana, or some other low expense area, being an App developer for WP doesn't seem to be a path to economic security.

This may be a side thing for him. I bet he has a full time job and makes apps as a hobby... and a few extra bux.

Good for him. I respect anyone fighting to do what they love, even if he isn't rich. I am willing to bet most independent developers aren't rolling in the huge dollars, even in the Android and iOS markets.
My Dad always said the secret to a job is to find something you enjoy and then trick someone into paying you for it. Sounds like Mr. Perez is doing just fine.
