I'm currently working on Gimmie, the white label provider of loyalty tools and software targeted towards digital media publishers who want ways to reward their top users. We also provide a complementary service to help monetize the reward programs we power by actively sourcing for sponsorship to secure free products and paid performance-based marketing revenue from stores and brands.

I started coding in high school, when I taught myself HTML. I wanted to have a website and I couldn't afford to hire a web designer. To me, it was a tool to express myself and be creative with what I can have the computer do for me. It is also a language that's fun to learn and a way to play with new technologies more than just from a user's perspective. 

In 10 years, newer, faster devices will surface coupled with better ways to engage and monetize users - that's for sure. That will probably be the next big thing. I'm crossing fingers and waiting for it!
