About Michael Rihani

I am a technical product leader, payments geek, and entrepreneur with a passion for financial health, Bitcoin, and happiness. I have been an entrepreneur since I was 5 years old and I enjoy starting and building consumer internet companies.

I am changing the landscape of payments on the Apple Card and Apple Cash team by enabling customers to pay with their mobile devices in an easy, secure, and private way.

I love my family and friends more than my work.
