How many actual apps have you developed that have made it to the app stores?
Great question.. I have developed 2, one of which is a top Lifestyle app on Google Play and has generated over $1MM in revenues, 26K+ likes, and over 1MM downloads. The other is a simple weather app with 15 downloads :)
What was it really like to work for Microsoft?
The best part about working at a large and innovative company is the sense of community. Every one is working towards the same goal, which is a nice feeling to have. I do miss the camaraderie. It was an interesting time to be there.
Why did you leave Maine and then come back?
Leaving Maine was the best decision that I could have ever made. Boston, NYC, San Francisco, Redmond, Seattle, Charlotte, Long Island, Nassau - you start to get perspective on culture and people in general.
