Screenhero was born out of our own need. We wanted to work with each other remotely, and we realized the existing tools out there for real-time collaboration are meant for presentation, not collaboration. We took our experience building iTeleport, a top-selling remote desktop app for iOS and Mac, and built Screenhero from scratch. We've really tried to rethink the entire collaboration and real-time sharing experience from the ground-up. We want Screenhero to make every one of our users feel like heroes.

At Screenhero, he's having the time of his life working with an incredible team on an awesome product.
