Bryce Katz’s career started in commercial real estate in 2008, after graduating from the University of Kansas. It didn’t take long, however, to realize Katz’s true passion was in the creation of companies, public products and new technologies.
Having had some ‘spare time’ at the commercial real estate position in 2008, Katz and a friend from college recognized the emerging opportunity with putting an “app” on iTunes. There seemed to be smaller, independent players being able to get their products in front of the masses through a new marketplace that Steve Jobs and Apple had created. Together, they sourced development and digital artwork and launched what would turn into a worldwide iTunes #1 application in 2009. From the moment of seeing his first product in Apple’s Top Charts, Katz was hooked on creations that people from all over the world can enjoy, regardless of linguistic, economic or territorial barriers. Over the next 9 years, Katz would produce seven applications amassing over 8.5 million downloads worldwide, featured in dozens of publications, garnering two features on the iTunes front page, and achieving views on promotional materials reaching into the 100+ million mark.
In 2013, Katz sourced development for another concept where people are able to walk around their home while being terrorized by ghostly apparitions on their mobile devices. A purveyor of the concept that immersive entertainment can also be achieved without the addition of expensive external hardware, Katz proved it correct as his concept Night Terrors: The Beginning, was the first independent AR experience to reach the Top 3 of iTunes, and be featured by Apple.
