My name is Jon Grall, and this is my personal site.

Jon Grall

I'm an entrepreneur and software engineer. My passion is using technology to improve the everyday lives of millions of people – something that I've been lucky enough to do successfully three times. I enjoy solving difficult problems with technology, designing new products and experiences, and working with startups. I have founded three companies to date, and I especially love the independence and satisfaction that comes from working for myself.

I grew up in England and France, before moving to the U.S. in 2001 to pursue a Computer Science degree at MIT. After college I spent 10 years living and working in California, much of it in Silicon Valley. Nowadays I now live in quiet Montclair, NJ, with my wonderful wife Eva. Outside of work, my passions include: photography (check out my portfolio); road trips and international travel; hiking and ultralight backpacking; DIY projects; video games; puzzles; and playing guitar. I also care deeply about conservation and various environmental causes. I practice Leave No Trace principles, always try to minimize my own personal environmental impact, and generally want to leave the world in a better state than I found it.

If I could afford to spend all of my time traveling and photographing the world, I would.
