Why Rose & Poppie?

Rose & Poppie is named for my maternal grandparents. They went by Grammie and Poppie, so clearly Poppie is pretty obvious. Grammie's middle name was Roseabell so that squares that away.

These two people were among the most important in my life. When Poppie passed us grandchildren received a fake poppy with a little piece of chocolate from an anonymous donor. When Grammie later passed I saved and dried a rose from the top of her casket. The two now live in a shadowbox in my office, their stems entwined. This was the inspiration for my first tattoo, which then inspired the company's logo.

So, what exactly

Do you DO?

Right now the focused effort has been on mobile application development. I created one of the first apple watch applications, followed up by an app to help novel writers keep track of their word goals which was released on both iOS and Android platforms

In the near future I hope to open an ecommerce store (or two) and start moving into selling physical goods

I also have grand plans for a web application that may never see the light of day, but if you join our newsletter you'll be the first to find out if it does!
