I do a bit of everything.

-Product Management for the iOS App
-Coding (Primarily Obj-C for iOS) - I'm yet not as experienced as my advisors or developers, but I'm getting there.
-UX Design
-Graphic Design - primarily for marketing materials on the web, on mobile, and in print. I'm no Photoshop wizard, but I can get by.
-Web Development and Maintenance
-Social Media Management
-Social Media Marketing
-Nomoisseur Recruiting
-Nomoisseur Community Management
-Nonstop Networking. AKA meeting and getting to know new people, which I love to do.
-Emails. So many emails. My least favorite activity in the world besides shopping.
-Practice my own brand of exercises in discipline and self-management. This may sound cheesy, but it's crucial. It's the only way I'm able to get stuff done.
-Constantly learning and improving. If I have down time, it's spent learning as much as I can to improve the business. From online coding classes to interviews with prominent industry leaders to books on behavi...

-Constantly learning and improving. If I have down time, it's spent learning as much as I can to improve the business. From online coding classes to interviews with prominent industry leaders to books on behavioral economics to surrounding myself with quality people...it never stops and since moving to Austin, the pace has accelerated and I love it.

Things I'm not doing yet but I should start doing asap:
-Blogging
-Driving for Lyft or Uber to manually spread the good word of Nomly. Plus I could use the extra cash.
-Cut back on the caffeine intake. I hear adrenal fatigue is a real problem.

While we've had a functional prototype available for a couple months, we only just launched a truly viable MVP iOS app on Nov 9th. Now my focus is split across 3 primary objectives: get users, learn about their behavior, improve the app experience. The key is to get users thinking about Nomly the "right" way, and it isn't easy. But we have a solid initial plan that takes advantage of our strong network of nomoisseurs, so we're working on it.

**"nomoisseurs" = nomly connoisseurs. These are the local, vetted food/drink experts that make recommendations. We're introducing them to the world through our FB/IG pages, as well as on our website: www.nomlyapp.com/people.

Andrew Bellay Advisor, Mobile App Strategist & Expert at Nomly

Planning a meal or night out should be so much less painful than navigating a tired & thin interface into a simple database of 1-star and 5-star rants. The combination of technology and a human's touch is such an under-utilized strategy right now in the tech world and I applaud Kartik and his team for having the guts to actually get their hands dirty to help their users solve their problem. The Nomly app is simple, intuitive, beautiful & playful and once you've experienced concierge service in your pocket, it's hard to go back to talking to a database.
