Tea With Strangers


Who Are We?

Curious who's behind the curtain at Tea With Strangers? It's us. We're on a mission to make the world smaller, a few cups of tea at a time. Join us.

  • Ankit

    Host of Hosts // Founder

    I talk to anyone and everyone in the Tea With Strangers community to learn how we can create a smaller and more open world. These conversations feed the design of the site, the words in our emails, the stories we tell, the systems that drive our community‘s growth, and all of my existential crises.

  • Nick

    Scotty // The Engineering Dept.

    I coordinate development (and anything else involving 1s and 0s). My focus is making it easy to contribute to Tea With Strangers, whether you’re an attendee, host, or potential contributor. On weekends, you can find me hosting tea times in Seattle (and working on TWS in between).

  • Mehul

    Serious Professional

    I tweet at Ankit sometimes and sometimes help Nick write some code. I don’t love tea (I think it’s pretty good), but I love the idea of tea. Also, you can’t spell team without tea. I just thought of that.

  • Raven

    Thought Leader

    I am a senior at Stanford majoring in Computer Science. I grew up in the bustling city of Singapore but have since grown fond of laid-back Californian life. The pinnacle of human civilization is being able to show up to work in T-shirt and sandals. I also enjoy living in the future.
