1. Tell us about yourself – where you live, your job, things you like to do.

I am a web and graphic designer in Los Angeles.  I head the Branding and Design division at Bridegroom and Bitney PR, which offers online and social media publicity.  We cater to anyone looking to build an online presence.  At the moment, our clientele is mostly made up of young musicians and models. Helping create their “image” can be a truly satisfying endeavor!

2. Which iOS device or devices do you own?

I have the iPhone 4 and coupled with the apps I have on it, it’s one of the most powerful tools I have!

3. Is there a particular category of apps that interests you the most? What are your top apps?

For work, of course, I am armed with all the social media apps: I have TweetDeck, Facebook and foursquare. Also for work, I don’t know what I’d do without Awesome Note which is truly awesome! During my downtime, I’m in love with Instagram, PhotoStudio and most recently Timelapse for stop motion videos!

I’m also always out and about with my two rescues — a puggle and a Yorkie-something–  and the Dog Park Finder has come in handy on one than more occasion!

5. What apps are popular among your colleagues and friends?

My friends all seem to be vegan and though I haven’t made the full transition yet, we’ve used Vegan Recipe Finder and iLocate  – Vegan Restaurants.  6. Give an example of a time an app was truly useful to you.

When I was living in Italy, my iPhone was a lifesaver! Ultralingua’s Italian Language Dictionary helped me communicate despite my pitiful Italian and having ConvertBot on hand saved a lot of confusion in converting anything from money to measurements!

6. What other Appolicious member do you admire the most and why?

I can pretty much count on anyone on Appolicious for an honest app review, and I often look to Appolicious users darthipad, Gabellini, and lydia2 for solid reviews on apps I’m interested in.

7. Do you have a Twitter account?

Please follow me on Twitter @agentcoco.  Thanks Appolicious community!
