Pupil is comprised of recent graduates from UCLA, Stanford, and Tufts. While the team varies from techie (but cool) programmers to creative (and cool) big thinkers, each Pupil team member shares a common passion for spreading knowledge to a fun, interactive community. We take our work seriously, but believe the best work is done when having fun!
An avid mobile tech enthusiast, Mark pondered the idea for Pupil with the intention of uniting question & answer services with images. He serves as both chief vissionary and mobile developer, leading to long sleepless nights of “how can we make Pupil even more awesome?” If Mark isn’t thinking about Pupil, he’s writing, playing, and listening to any music under the sun. Oh, and he also starred in a Pharell music video as a bodyguard. He’s basically famous already.
A hardcore baseball fan, Paul relishes being Pupil’s main “utility” player by tackling areas like product management, app test, strategy, and shunning his technical background by writing content. He literally knows everything and anything you want to know about Pupil. Paul’s Pupil endeavors mostly aim at seeing if the Pupil community really thinks Mark rates as an 11 (see Demo video for reference).
Bart serves as Pupil's user experience architect and user interface designer. From day one, Bart helped bring the idea, brand, and design to life. When he's not listening to Spotify, watching Hulu, or Pupiling spiders, Bart spends his days running marathons, wakeboarding, and skydiving. But never in that order.
Have you heard about Pupil? Stefanie probably made sure you did. As our public relations manager, Stefanie is not only the lead for all external communication, but can also throw a nasty knuckleball, and performed Chopin's Fantasie Impromptu by the age of 12. She uses Pupil to identify obscure things she finds in San Francisco.
Emma loves writing, especially for and about Pupil. She pitches in everywhere, but primarily cares about how the Pupil community can best use Pupil. Her secondary concern is ketchup. She grew up thinking ketchup would be good on anything. She wants to know if Pupil can prove her wrong, but just a warning, it’s not good in milk.
No fun here. Or... is he just too much fun? Dominic grew up in Minnesota and speaks German. His programming is better than his grammar. He’s our awesome “backend” guy... meaning he is a Python pro.
Resident Android expert and creator of Dominic’s infamous “backend” database, Kevin loves to use Pupil to identify awesome food. He’s got a knack for programming and boasts a great radio voice. Sometimes, he walks his cat.
