My name is Rich Brome. I spent the first 18 years of my life in scenic rural Virginia. College took me to wonderful Philadelphia, where I spent the next 18 years of my life. I attended Drexel University, worked at a few great startups, then started my own company: Phone Scoop.
Phone Scoop is my current project and full-time job. It's a web site about mobile phones for the U.S. It includes news, hands-on reports, a searchable database of specs & features, and a comprehensive glossary.
In 2020, I focused on helping with the COVID-19 pandemic in any way I could. That included creating COVID Help Map.
After a decade-long stint in NYC, I'm back in Philly.
I also dabble in inventing with 3D printing and Arduino. I'm passionate about the web, politics, the environment, space, architecture, design, and urbanist issues like mass transit, bike lanes, and zoning.
