Erik is a Newport Beach lifeguard from Southern California who has been calling Berlin home for over four years. He studied physics at UC Berkeley and worked as a paralegal in the Bay Area for a while before embracing his inner nerd and starting iOS development. Which turned out to be great decision: besides working at startups like Snapfish, Klara and EyeEm, he also built LineUp as a side project, which ended up getting acquired by Keepsafe recently. Whatever time is left from making LineUp the best of its class, he spends on exploring places around Europe with his fiancee. He loves a good IPA and breakfast burritos, which are both very hard come by in Berlin, which led him to start making his own burritos. He burns the burrito calories by regularly jogging but cannot figure out why some people enjoy running.
