Brett Lockspeiser studied symbolic systems at Stanford University and started his career at Google where, as a Product Manager, he developed data driven consumer web applications. He also led the development of the Google News Archive Search, a feature of Google News that allows time-based searches from a repository of hundreds of millions of news and magazine articles spanning 200 years. Since leaving Google, Brett has worked with various startups. He manages product development and interfaces for companies seeking crowd-sourcing, question and answers and social games. Recently, Brett has entered the "nonprofit startup" arena, working with ArtNow International, an art foundation in San Francisco, to build a platform for collaborative curating. Brett is also applying Silicon Valley techniques and technologies to the world of Jewish texts. Together with Joshua Foer, whom he met on the Bronfman Youth Fellowship in Israel, Brett founded the Sefaria Project to create a free repository of Jewish texts and a new interactive interface for easy navigation.
