Founder & CEO, Little Details LLCJan 2012 — Present
Little Details' first product was a #1 paid travel app for iOS called Just Landed® that launched in June 2012, and is available for sale on the iTunes App Store. Just Landed makes it easy to pick someone up at the airport on time — just enter their flight number and we'll alert you when you need to leave for the airport. We take into consideration your location, current traffic conditions, and real-time flight data to remind you to leave at just the right time. Just Landed has been featured by Apple in "New & Noteworthy", "What's Hot" and "Amazing on iPhone 5", and has been covered by Lifehacker, Mashable, CNET and PC Magazine and many others. The app was even featured on both CBS and ABC News!
Little Details' latest product is an adorable free-to-play puzzle game for iOS called Patchmania™, that will launch globally on March 19th 2015 in 11 languages. In Patchmania, Farmer Lester has destroyed your forest home... and now it’s time for bunny revenge! Lead a brave little bunny named Calvin, and his furry friends, on a rampage through Pitchfork Farms. Devour Lester’s crops, and put him out of business by drawing paths with your finger through his carefully planted vegetable patches. Patchmania features over 600 original puzzles to keep your bunnies chomping away, and animation so cute you won’t be able to put it down! With Patchmania, we hope to offer players a fresh new puzzle game experience, and to surpass the quality level and success we achieved with Just Landed.
Little Details remains 100% indie and self-funded.

For a number of years I've been frustrated with how difficult it is to sell stuff online, so I founded SimplyListed with the goal of creating an innovative new marketplace for used stuff. The vision was to make selling stuff as easy as taking a photo with your iPhone. I was responsible for building our iPhone app and online marketplace, as well as running every aspect of the business. SimplyListed was backed by Y Combinator, SV Angel, and Start Fund and has been covered by Mashable and Lifehacker.
