I combined my lifelong passion for genealogy with my professional expertise in technology to launch Treelines.com, collaborative storytelling software for family historians and their relatives. Unlike typical genealogy software which focuses on names, dates, and facts, Treelines helps families make meaning out of this raw data by connecting it together into the stories of peoples’ lives. It won the 2013 RootsTech Developer Challenge, and Mashable selected it as one of their favorite tools for building an online family scrapbook.

“I love your positioning — I truly believe you are hitting an important nerve that is missing for many in our field (and beyond).”
—Yuval Ben Galim, Executive VP of R&D and Operations at MyHeritage
