Jeff V. Whiting is a Brigham Young University graduate from the Music Dance Theatre Program.

In 2013, Whiting created Stage Write Software, an application designed for making theatre and dance design easier through the iPad. The app allows directors to replace the cumbersome paper "Show Bibles" with an electronic copy of all the needed paperwork and background files on a play or attraction. Stage Write Software also allows directors to design simple and clear stage directions for actors, music, and scenery. Apple selected Whiting and Stage Write, with the five other prestigious apps, to highlight on their annual documentary of the apps of the year.
