Agen Schmitz

Agen Schmitz has worked within the Apple eco-sphere since helping manage conference speaker content for Thunder Lizard Productions in the mid-90s. After spending time at Amazon in the early 2000s (as senior editor for the Electronics, specializing in PDAs and MP3 players—he still has his original pre-release iPod), he has continued to focus on e-commerce content and works with a variety of brands across the e-retail landscape. Agen lives in Seattle with his wife and son (who, sadly, has moved onto Windows for gaming), loves making monthly music mixes, and is always dreaming of Iceland.
