1. What do you do? Who do you help?

I am the Founder & CEO of Fort Mason Games. I am passionate about mobile games and the industry. I believe that mobile games not only offer fun and entertainment, but also the opportunity to relax and destress. Mobile games are becoming the new go-to form of entertainment for Americans.

65% of women play mobile games, yet most think games are not designed for them. We are on a mission to change that. While our games are built for everyone, we want to help women relax and de-stress through games. We are doing this be making mobile games that are more social, relaxing, respectful of women, and fun. We all need less stress in our lives!
