"Jeff and I were tasked with the marketing and PR of the Tilt World iOS game. One of my favorite memories of working with Jeff was when he called the Senior Vice President of the DEMO Conference on his cell phone and pitched him to present the app onstage at the next DEMO Conference. How Jeff managed to get us accepted on the day of the deadline, without a pitch deck or any app screenshots is nothing shy of incredible. Tilt World became #1 on the App Store in China and #7 in the United States in the category of Kid’s Games, after the launch of the game."
