Jesse Biroscak, JustShareIt
Jesse is a native San Franciscan, but spent the past decade living in other parts of the country or the world. He recently embraced his inner hippie, moved back to San Francisco, and joined JustShareIt as their Senior Manager in charge of licensing the JustShareIt platform. Before joining JustShareIt Jesse co-founded a company that worked on trust and reputation systems for the web and The Sharing Economy. He has worked at The World Bank, Obama for America, Clinton Global Initiative, and United Nations and historically specialized in geopolitics, international development, and the Middle East. Jesse received his B.A. from UCLA in European Studies and French and Francophone Studies and his M.A. in International Affairs from The George Washington University. In his spare time, he plays sports, does triathlons, eats lots of sustainable (and delicious) food, and laughs at his silly dog, Byrdie, with his fiancee Maggie.
