I am a technologist with years of experience with Apple and wearOS products, have a BS in Computer Science and an MBA specializing in emerging tech, and owned the popular site AppleToolBox. In my day job, I advise Fortune 500 companies with their digital transformation strategies and also consult with numerous digital health startups in an advisory capacity. I'm VERY interested in exploring the digital health and fitness-tech evolution and keeping a close eye on patents, FDA approvals, strategic partnerships, and developments happening in the wearables and digital health sector. When I'm not writing or presenting, I run with my Apple Watch Ultra or Samsung Galaxy Watch and closely monitor my HRV and other recovery metrics.


  1. The focus should be develop smart technologies faster and more efficiently so that world health can benefit at a affordable price. Technologies capable of generating data as they used.
    You will say I am a dreamer but I am not the only one. Just today a couple of “health professionals” went for second dose of Covid-19 vaccine just to be told the first dose records were not to be found in the register. If this happens in the “so called health educated” cultures what will the problems be in poor countries?
