About us

Our team believes in building products that make the world a better place. With Kindspark, we created an online platform where a community of like-minded people could pay-it-forward in the areas in which they live.

Kindspark provides a place where you can give away things you no longer need to people in your community who need them. It's a way to be socially responsible within our communities and environment. And best of all, it's fun, rewarding, and promises to not only make a difference, but to make some friends in the process.

This is just the beginning. So send us your feedback—so we can ensure Kindspark does everything we hope it will do. Maybe even more.

My Profile

Hello and welcome to Kindspark! After 16+ years working in the internet industry, I wanted to create something that gave back, something that could create a lot of good. I have enjoyed paying things forward in various ways, and was amazed that there was not one central platform or website that was specifically designed for this. I wanted to create a site where the community could give back as well as be rewarded for their contributions... so we built Kindspark.

If you have some things laying around that you no longer need, please Kindspark them!

I live in a Los Angeles beach community with my amazing wife and daughter. When I am not working or hanging out with my tribe, you can find me at one of the local motocross tracks, riding downhill mountain bikes or snowboarding at the local mountains.

My Profile

Welcome! I have been working for more than 8 years on the technical and product side of many internet businesses, and most of them working with Jon. My passion is user experience. I am obsessed with turning complex technical problems into simple, intuitive solutions. It's my way of paying it forward to the user. When the idea of Kindspark came up, I instantly gravitated to it. What better of an idea to put my expertise to use?

I am proud of what we have built so far with Kindspark and I am very excited to keep building a great experience for you. I am always interested hearing your thoughts and feedback, so feel free to shoot me a message.

I live near the ocean in Los Angeles with my wife and two cats. When I am not submersed in spec'ing out new features or leading the technical side, you can find me at USC football games (Fight On!) or working on some of my personal projects... such as an automatic cat feeder.
