A local Seattlite, Jason lives in Pioneer Square with his Shiba Inu, Banks. In his free time, he enjoys short-form writing, playing tourist at the fish market, and discovering new local music. Jason also volunteers with the Seattle-based charitable organizations FareStart, FullLife, and the Bureau of Fearless Ideas.
Kyle began his career running business operations and strategy for high-profile hospitality concepts in Los Angeles; opening up establishments like Gordon Ramsey West Hollywood, XIV by Michael Mina, Harlowe, and The Bungalow Santa Monica.
Kyle then shifted to the technology sector, working in sales and marketing leadership for a Bay Area tech startup called Cake, which specializes in hardware and software for the food and beverage industry. During this time, he created and managed their enterprise sales program across the US and facilitated quota-exceeding results quarter over quarter. Upon Cake's acquisition by Sysco Foods in Summer 2017, Kyle has since reestablished himself back into the Seattle landscape as Co-Founder and CMO of a consumer-facing mobile planning solution called Weve - set to launch in Fall 2018.
In his spare time, Kyle enjoys cooking, wine tasting, and traveling to experience what the rest of the world has to offer. When he’s not hungry or thirsty, you’ll probably find him hiking, camping, catching a concert, or playing guitar.
