At Apple. I started on the Apple Online Store product management team on various initiatives which included:
Redesigning the back-end and front-end experience of the Checkout flow of Apple.com from the ground up. Our Checkout experience hadn’t been updated in years and we decided to rebuild the experience to be as beautiful as it is seamless, as well as uses technologies that allowed us to move faster in the future.
Improving our Pickup in store feature and launching various features, including a critical one to improve customer experience of ordering online to pick-up in stores in peak launch times.
I then moved on the Program Management Office to work on various iOS and macOS features. My tentpole feature for 2 years was Screen Time, a new feature on iOS 12 and macOS Catalina that helps give you a better understanding of the time you and your kids spend using apps, visiting websites, and on your devices overall.

Scout Labs helped companies monitor they brand and products on social media in a real-time web-based application. Scout Labs has been acquired by Lithium technologies in May 2010 and is now called Lithium Social Media Monitoring.
I started Crist Drive, a mobile apps development studio. Crist Drive, is where it all started, where Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak created Apple and they are our source of inspiration. Just like them, we like to think differently and have a whole new take on the problems we think about. We believe mobile technology has the power to improve our life in so many different ways.
As part of Crist Drive, I built and launched Serenade. Serenade was the best way to share songs you’re listening on your iPhone with your friends. With a tap, you could send the song you’re currently listening on Twitter, Facebook, via email, SMS or copy the song information so you could paste it anywhere else. Along with your message, we shared a link to your song so your friends could immediately listen to a preview of the song and buy it straight from iTunes, YouTube or Spotify.
We've built many iOS apps, including Voilà!, one of the first service allowing users to share and broadcast their location online and discover interesting places around them, as well as a conference room locator which allows employees to easily locate and get information about conference rooms around them. We also helped Zappli build myShopanion, an app that allowed you to easily find products, save and share them, read reviews and buy them at the best price wether online or in stores.
