Who “We” Are

Troy Stephens

Founder and Lead Engineer

A nine-year veteran of Apple’s AppKit team, Troy founded Coherence Labs in October 2011 to pioneer bold new directions in Mac, iPad, and iPhone app development. Leveraging his love of elegant design and pleasing user interaction, deep knowledge of OS X’s application frameworks, and decades of programming experience to produce powerful, delightful tools gives him great satisfaction.

Troy designed and developed TypeMetal, Coherence Labs’ innovative semantic HTML editor for the Mac.
