We started #open because we think that dating can be better.
— Amanda Wilson, co-founder
After graduating from the University of Tennessee with a degree in political science, Amanda spent 15 years managing and coordinating local, state, and federal campaigns. As a master’s candidate at Harvard University, she became fascinated by the capacity of game theory to disentangle the complexities of human behavior and the application of game theory to location based dating.
David has spent the last 23 years working on a variety of innovative ventures—including JavaNet, Broadvoice, and FreeConferencePro—that have provided internet based services to at least a million subscribers to date. His talent for molding raw technology into outstanding experiences makes him uniquely suited to augment Amanda’s understanding of game theory and human behavior.

After dropping out of high school, Max spent the better part of a decade working all sorts of different jobs in technology, web development, and copywriting before returning to academia to get a Bachelor’s in English from UMass Amherst. Also, David's brother from another mother (literally). Max believes that the rich are an underutilized source of sustenance 🍴.
