Graham's life was changed when he started using the Postagram app to connect to his mom, dad, aunts and uncles who lived across the country. Finding life too busy to get photos developed, write postcards and mail them, this app quickly helped him fill up his distant family's refrigerators with moments from his life and his family members' hearts with love. Graham leads the Editorial team in finding apps that can change your life and figuring out how to match them with the people who would benefit from them. He is particularly passionate about apps that can enrich our offline lives.
Daniel thanks the developer gods for apps like Clear, which keep his daily lists simple and his mind, well, mostly clear. He also really appreciates the app’s use of sound effects that harken back to the glory days of cartridge games. He sometimes adds tasks that have already been completed just to mark them as complete and bask in the auditory bliss of “da-ding”. Daniel is responsible for everything design-related at AppMatch. He likes the challenge of making complex designs look as simple as possible. He has been known to stress over pixels and dream in grayscale.
Marielle wants to live in a world where people say what they mean and never stop short of their full potential. As an easily distracted storyteller and wordsmith, no app has captured her heart like Evernote. It’s her virtual post-it pad that never quits. From random bits of dirty poetry to work notes, Evernote makes it easy to keep all of her thoughts, tasks, and ideas organized. In the fourth grade, Marielle fell in love with words when a book made her cry for the first time. She realized then that connection can be created in a single sentence. Marielle believes in the power of language, and knows that just the right words, at just the right time, can change everything. Her favorite word is yes. She's also a yoga teacher.

Amber was going through a particularly overwhelming period of stress in her life when she found Headspace: The app that serves up guided meditation with a simple tap of the finger. The brilliant animations and design intrigued her to start. However, it was the rich library of practical meditation courses that shifted her perspective on how technology can help transform mental, spiritual, social, and ecological well being for people and the planet. AppMatch played a key role in inspiring Amber to pursue a career in tech when she began working as a product tester for the company in 2016. In 2017, she completed a developer boot camp and started building web based applications. Amber now serves as the Customer Support Specialist and App Facilitator for developers working to get their app matched to destined users.
