Jack Levin is the founder of ImageShack Corp. Jack got his Computer Science degree at the University of Missouri-Columbia after moving there from St. Louis, Missouri. Before starting ImageShack, he was one of the first network engineers at Google. He learned great things from his former employer Google, which inspired him to get serious about his wish to create a successful company of his own, that soon became a leader in the photo-sharing world. If he isn’t working or spending his time with his family, you will find him eating at Shish Kabobs across the street or flying his RC helicopters….even in the office. When he is on vacation he enjoys hobbies, such as, organizing the geno sequences of DNA to find predisposed genetic illnesses by using Hadoop or inventing new math problems. He loves traveling all over with his two daughters and wife.
Nicholas grew up with interests in science and technology. He came to find those interests sparked a curiosity with computers. At the age of nine he began his programming adventures with an old PC. By age twelve his passion for computing propelled him into the web and building fan websites for his favorite TV shows. He’s now pursuing a CS degree while working as a self taught software developer.
In his life, away from computers, Nicholas has been known to be a goofy and caring individual. He constantly consumes information and absorbs knowledge from all around him. He enjoys debating politics, working on computer related hobbies, and snowboarding in Tahoe.
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER
Deborah likes to talk a lot, it is one of her many gifts in addition to business development. She loves organization and planning ImageShack’s direction in sales, HR and operations….and is fighting taking the OCD test. Despite the best efforts of the engineers she will never think like them nor will she play video games. If you don’t see her in the office she will most likely be traveling the world, or working out so she can finally beat half the office in pull-ups.
Edwin comes from a long line of railroad men. His namesake retired as an electrician for the Illinois Central Railroad. An early exposure to model railroading and electronics eventually led to an interest in computers. In his free time Edwin enjoys riding trains, shopping for clothes and urban exploration.
Mikhail is currently attending San Jose State University as a CS major. He works on a variety of projects that involve both ImageShack and yFrog. Mikhail is a huge hockey fan. It does not take much to notice the decline in his work performance during the NHL playoffs. He also is an exceptional C programmer and a self-proclaimed office champ in ping pong.
Serge usually could be found in the farthest and darkest corner of the office where he is trying to find another part of his duties that he could avoid doing by shamelessly shifting it to company computers. The free time that this nefarious activity creates is wasted by reading science fiction and visiting boring places like SLAC, LLNL and NASA ARC. His dream is to bike from Campbell to the San Francisco Bay and manage to get back in one day.

Naturally he is a big fan of Football (soccer) and is an avid supporter of Manchester United and the England National team. He studied Digital Design and Animation in college after taking a summer school class learning 3D Studio Max. His art work and computer graphics have been featured in galleries as well as in school demo reels. His passion for web design began when a start up company needed a website. Peter took it upon himself to learn web design and he built a website from scratch, with no experience, in just two months. His goal is to become a full fledged Jedi Front End Developer.
