Parents2ParentsApps is a mom and pop, family business that creates mobile applications for parents. We build apps that answer our own needs as parents, and strive to make them useful to others and as user-friendly as possible.
Michael is a native of Moscow and has lived in Israel since 1990. Miriam is originally from Boston and moved to Israel in 2001. We live in the beautiful city of Jerusalem, just fifteen minutes walk from the historic Old City.
Michael is a physicist who enjoys computer programming; Miriam teaches Arabic literature and comparative religion in university. We speak English between ourselves, and have three other languages in common (Hebrew, Russian and French). Miriam also speaks some other great languages – Arabic and Spanish.
In our free time (when we have it!), we enjoy playing chamber music together (Miriam on piano and Michael on viola). Currently we are working on Brahms’ Sonata no. 1 for viola and piano. We also love playing music by Astor Piazzola. Currently our major audience – and strongest supporters – are our dear family members. Stay posted for our Carnegie Hall debut!
Miriam loves sports and used to compete in triathlons. She even won first place a few times in Israeli national competitions. But that was a long time ago! One of her major contributions to the family is raising our awareness of sustainability and environmentally-friendly living, something that formerly Soviet Michael was not aware of. Thus we compost in our local community garden, use cloth diapers, recycle whatever we can, and try to tread lightly on the earth.
We started Parents2ParentsApps in February 2012 to provide a home for the applications Michael had written for our own use, and to make them more widely available. Drop us a line if you try them and find them useful, and especially if you have suggestions for improvement.
