Mobile Consultant

The mobile app industry is growing at an unprecedented pace... Barely keeping up or are you leveraging all the opportunities it brings?

If you made it this far I know you have motivation, enthusiasm and drive. However, you will need a mobile consultant like me by your side to fully reap all the benefits of what technology has to offer.

Until not long ago, iPhone apps were like the very first websites: in a world where websites were few and far between, just having one was enough.  It wasn't particularly challenging to be a player in the mobile app development game without much competition. Now, as the market becomes more saturated, it is increasingly difficult to stand out from the crowd.

My years of experience in the field, combined with my MBA and business savvy, make me a shrewd ally to anyone looking to make their mark in the mobile world.

I live in San Francisco, the epicenter of the startup boom.  While I've seen some amazing concepts come to life, I've chosen not to get involve in revenue sharing, equity or similarly structured projects. Instead, I lend my technical and business know-how to early stage startups and established brands as a mobile consultant.

Facebook Data Use Policy changes

Facebook recently announced they're considering changing their data use policy. This is something that has been extremely talked about and is extremely important to many of Facebook's users. They details are available directly on the website and users are allowed to provide comments and feedback until 9am PST on Nov 28th.

Make yourself heard!

The original communication received:
We recently announced some proposed updates to our Data Use Policy, which explains how we collect and use data when people use Facebook, and our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (SRR), which explains the terms governing use of our services.
The updates provide you with more detailed information about our practices and reflect changes to our products, including:
New tools for managing your Facebook Messages;
Changes to how we refer to certain products;
Tips on managing your timeline; and
Reminders about what's visible to other people on Facebook.
We are also proposing changes to our site governance process for future updates to our Data Use Policy and SRR. We deeply value the feedback we receive from you during our comment period but have found that the voting mechanism created a system that incentivized quantity of comments over the quality of them. So, we are proposing to end the voting component in order to promote a more meaningful environment for feedback. We also plan to roll out new engagement channels, including a feature for submitting questions about privacy to our Chief Privacy Officer of Policy.
We encourage you to review these proposed changes and give us feedback before we finalize them. Please visit the "Documents" tab of the Facebook Site Governance Page https://www.facebook.com/fbsitegovernance to learn more about these changes and to submit comments before 9 AM PST on November 28, 2012.
You can also follow and like the Site Governance Page for updates on this process and on any future changes to our Data Use Policy or SRR.
