  • Nick White

    Software Engineer at Facebook, undergrad at MIT, PhD dropout from USC, formerly at MyLikes (aka Post Intelligence, acquired by Uber), and before that Google.

  • Jerry Liu

    Jerry is a Professional Panda Hugger. When he's not cuddling a baby panda, he works on Operations and Customer Service at MyLikes.

  • Kitty

    Kitty sat down in front of the door to a friend's apartment back in 2005, but she couldn't keep her. We couldn't say no. Kitty is very sedate and happy to sunbathe or curl up in a warm lap. Though, she is very picky about which humans she likes.

  • Captain Jack

    We got Jack in 2010 from the LA Shelter. They claimed he was 8 weeks old, but based on his fur and weight, he was probably closer to 6 weeks. He's a mutt, but shows a mix of tabby and possibly bengal. He's completely insane and acts like a puppy, particularly to Nick.
