Stella is a lifelong California resident who loves to surf both the web and ocean. She has written for both Country Connections magazine and Art Calendar magazine and other web publications. As a fine artist her work is sold on greeting cards, puzzles and home decor. The day the AppStore opened an addiction to apps was born that continues today. She has owned every version of iPhone and iPad at one time or another and has owned and tried out hundreds of apps. Stella is thrilled to have been hired by AppAdvice. It is a dream job to be able to help others by selecting a perfect set of applications to get a job done or celebrate an occasion.
