Vouch for them.

Shekhar Khedekar
We worked together  •  Front End Engineer, Shocase. Previously Web Design Engineer, Autodesk. University of California, Los Angeles grad.
Jared always has an eye to the future - his approach is forward-thinking, elegant and always focused on the best possible end-to-end user ex ... perience.
Laura Schewel
They're my friends  •  Founder and Chief Executive Officer, StreetLight Data and Graduate Student, UC Berkeley Energy & Resources Group.
Jared is an unusual combination of artistic/design brilliance and vision, with a hard streak of practicality and execution. It's rare to fin ... d this combination in my opinion, and is the type of "dual" personality that indicates a successful entrepreneur.
YoonJin Chang
We worked together  •  Venture Partner, Cherubic Ventures and First Korean Brand Ambassador, Quintessentially Lifestyle.
Jared is the great product UX designer whose understanding of users is incredibly accurate and analytical that this ability will help to inc ... rease user aquisition. He also has the great heart to help other entrepreneurs.

Angel Steger
Product & Design Lead, Colingo. Previously Product & Design, Independent Contractor. Brown grad.
She shares her knowledge with others, connects people who need connecting, even if there is no benefit to her.

Victor Ching
They're my advisor  •  Co-Founder, Chinchin. Previously Global Service Team, AppDisco Inc..
Victor is full of energy and ideas. He, like any great (product) designer knows when to borrow and steal, and when to invent from scratch.
