Our Founders

Tema

Business & Operations

I’m a serial entrepreneur who got my start at 18 y/o age in the Real Estate industry. With the purchase of my first investment property, but I also own other companies such as cleaning, tech, logistics and real estate. I’m a veteran who served in 2 branches, Army and Air force. There I gained valuable knowledge in team work and leadership. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Law, Economics, And Public Policy from the University of Washington.

Andrew

Software Developer

I was born and raised in Fayetteville, NC but left at age 18 for the US Navy where I served for 6 years doing Sonar. After the Navy, I attended the University of Washington where I hold a Bachelor's degree in Interactive Media Design. I love working with my Co-Founders on The Ebba and especially love helping the Black community.

Gio

UX Designer

I grew up in Seattle, Washington's central district where gentrification continues to push black people out due to the inflated cost of living. After graduating from the University of Washington Bothell during the pandemic, I joined Ebba to lead their design efforts and help create a platform where people can discover black owned businesses not only in their own city but across the country. Outside of design I'm a car enthusiast, political junkie, avid anime/manga lover, and ginger beer connoisseur.
