David Perlmutter (CEO, Founder)David graduated from Brown University in 1984 with a B.A. in Economics and Comparative Literature. He has a successful career in commercial real estate as developer, owner and broker. David has always had an interest in photography, technology, media and cooking. In honor of his mom`s 80th birthday in 2012, he started the website, www.jellycookies.com to create a digital home for all of the recipes she had perfected and shared over the years. Recifoto was born as a result of the confluence of several ideas: the world is more mobile and app centered than ever; phones on cameras and tablets are really good now; and, it`s much easier to save and share a recipe using your mobile device than to enter ingredients and directions into a web portal. David hopes that Recifoto will be a gateway for people all over the world to share the recipes that they love.
