Overview

I am the founder and CEO of a mobile app strategy, development, and training agency that helps create solutions that solve our clients mobile challenges. I founded the agency with the belief that a person's experience on a mobile device drives engagement with your organization. Like many things in life, you only get one chance to make a first impression.

For over a decade, I have worked on the entire software stack including information and network security, web applications, and big data analysis. I have led the creation, development, and deployment of several apps to both the Apple App Store and Google Play. My iOS apps have been featured by Apple as "New and Noteworthy."

Prior to founding the agency, I worked as a mobile technical lead and architect with Cynergy (now KPMG), where I led the design, development, and deployment of mobile apps to the enterprise and app stores. Each client brought the opportunity to change how their customers and employees engaged on a daily basis through the power of mobile devices.

The mobile space evolves daily. Apps are more expensive than most executives think, and you can't afford to make the wrong investment. Building on my exposure to mobile problems, and knowledge of what works and when, I can help plan and execute your mobile solution.
