Some time in 2009, I was contacted out of the blue, by a guy who has trouble sleeping. He’d seen an article about the Fitness apps I used to sell, and seeing I was from his neck of the woods, wondered if I’d like to partner with him.

Not only did he have insomnia, he was a sound engineer and had created a bunch of white noise style sounds. The difference was that these sounds were nature sounds, like Rain fall, and Wind and Thunder Storms.

Over the next few months we collaborated and created the Sleepmaker series of apps.

They’ve been in the Apple app store under a bunch of different guises ever since.
