Apparl is the brainchild of Founder, Alpatrick Golphin. He’s been involved with the sports, fashion, and entertainment industries since the early 90’s, having a particular passion for action sports and motorsports apparel. Soon after, Adrenaline Brands, Inc. was established to house his own clothing brands as well as those of his affiliates.
After years of cultivating business relationships with various people, in various jobs, with various skills, in various countries, within a vast global clothing industry made him realize what was missing. It became clear to him just how important it was for people in the industry to have access to all the resources and information they’d ever need to start and scale their respective businesses or careers within the industry. This idea lead to the Founding of Apparl.
Danny is responsible for long term technology direction and overseeing Apparl’s technical architecture. Prior to Co-Founding Apparl in 2012, Danny was owner both Web Development and Mobile Application Development companies where he led the development of many websites and mobile applications for iOS, Android, webOS and others. Earlier in his career he worked at UNISYS a, iBelong Networks, Hewlett-Packard, and other Fortune 500 companies.
Today Danny has amassed a successful track record in software development, being a self-taught programmer since the late 90’s to being an up and coming mobile developer today. His unquenchable thirst for learning will always keep him on the bleeding edge of technology. He likes all things related to aviation, when he has time, he likes to run and train for road races. He uses various developer groups to stay abreast of the local tech scene and leverages the wealth of knowledge his fellow developers share.
