Bio

 

I develop and market popular, highly rated products.

In the last 6 years, I’ve created 6 indie apps – for iOS, Android, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera – that’ve topped 1,000,000 active users and 14 more that’ve topped 10,000. Altogether, my apps have been installed over 20,000,000 times, been rated an average of over 4.5 out of 5 stars by users, and been featured over 1,000 times by the press and by platform vendors – including in Forbes, on 60 Minutes, and by Apple, Google, Mozilla, and Opera. I’ve had, among them, an app named one of the 100 best innovations by Popular Science, one of the 20 best Chrome extensions and 20 best Firefox add-ons by Lifehacker, the best privacy and security innovation and a finalist for the best privacy and security innovation at South by Southwest, the best technology at Launch, and an honoree for the best experimental mobile site or app at The Webbys.

I’ve also spoken about privacy and security at Defcon, about app development at Google I/O and 3 Developer Days, and about Disconnect at Launch and my research has been published by The Wall Street Journal and CNN.

Previously, I was a Google engineer – I worked on AdWords, AdSense, Checkout, Wave, then Chrome and helped start the company’s sales-engineering and developer-relations teams.
