About Michael Rihani

I am an engineer, payments geek, and serial entreprenuer with a passion for startups, social good, 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 through innovation on the Apple Pay team by enabling customers to pay with their mobile devices in a simple, private, and secure way.

I love my family and friends more than my work.
