About

Digital should be about making professionals' lives easier and customers' experiences better. Easier for teams to get the job done. Easier for customers to interact with your brand and buy from your business. I’ve partnered with product managers, engineers, and digital executives at enterprise companies and high-profile ventures since 2000. My mission? To keep you at the cutting edge of software and digital and make you look like a genius in front of your boss. Look, I get it. It’s impossible to tackle the strategic projects your company needs done to stay one step ahead of the competition. There’s a never ending list of day-to-day operational priorities that take precedent. Finding the right technical expertise is always a challenge, too. The tech is constantly changing and your team is trained on what you use right now - not what will be invented tomorrow. A look back on the last 20 years from my viewpoint: 📲 I'm the guy that started an app agency before many people knew what apps were. 🤩 Featured by Apple, Google, Starbucks, Levi’s, and Fast Company. 👖 Jeff Goldblum used an app my team built on an episode of Disney+ to create a custom pair of jeans. 📈 Since 2005, my podcast, blog posts, book, & videos have reached millions of people. 📚 I literally wrote *the* book on apps published by O’Reilly. 🎧 Digital Innovator is my way to help as many as possible understand digital strategically & tactically.
