Since joining the Mavericks he has worked to update the mobile app and the amount of information and activity that can be accomplished with it. Other projects that the Mavs are excited about include gamification of the mobile app, building loyalty and rewards programs, augmented reality implementations, and some very cutting edge game day technology and experiences.
