Geek is not a dirty word for Nicole Cifani, head of VIP Client and Partner Relations at Mobile Roadie, a mobile app platform that brings the joy of amazing apps to everyone with an iPhone or Android; the word “geek” is music to Nicole’s very sonically inclined ears. Nicole embraces the title with a “more-cool-points-for-me” gusto.

Before Mobile Roadie, Nicole worked as Director of Partner Relations at Yahoo!

Seriously, Nicole has enough cool points for all of West LA.
In her spare time – yeah, you’d think she didn’t already have enough to do, but you are wrong, oh so wrong – Nicole is a contributing writer for publications like Indie Shuffle and Laist, has also worked with sites like Flavorpill and Made This For You, and has a track record all over radio.

NC: I handle VIP Client and Partner Relations. I work with our VIP clients to guide them through our toolsets, discuss best practices, and make sure they have a good grasp on our product in general. Because mobile technology is…
