Hello, my name is Alexander Obenauer.

I am the CEO & Co-founder of Mindsense, a creative, bootstrapped software engineering studio. We build the email app Mail Pilot, which became the #1 paid app in the entire Mac App Store within hours of its debut, and more recently, Throttle, a service that gives all-new levels of control over your inbox and email address.

I live in Southwest Virginia, where I'm honored to serve on the steering committee for Make a Mark Roanoke - Blacksburg, the Board of Directors for Feed by Seed, the Board of Directors for the Roanoke - Blacksburg Technology Council, and, since helping to start the event in 2011, the steering committee for TEDxVirginiaTech.
