On this episode

Tim McElreath – Director of Technology, Mobile & Emerging Platforms at Discover, Inc. Despite growing up with computer gear around the house, Tim gathered his degree in classic photography before digital was a thing. He landed his first tech job at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He then migrated over to jobs in financial services. But it took a major economic collapse to realize he was still fascinated by technology and user experience. He wanted to build things that helped people follow their passions. He eventually joined the Food Network before reaching Discovery, where he leads a team building mobile and conversational applications for some of the most popular real-life entertainment brands: Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Facebook Messenger, and Microsoft Cortana.
