Cindy J Lin, DEnv
Founder & CEO
CindyJ is an avid ecologist, environmental scientist and engineer by training. She achieved her 10-year old dream of working at the US Environmental Protection Agency and while there, engaged in amazing water protection projects and sweeping environmental policy changes. As Water Adviser at the US Embassy in Beijing, China, she tracked down stimulating water pollution stories and connected with local residents on science, citizen efforts, and the yummiest wild bamboo shoots in rainy, tropical Asia. A lazy hobbyist birder, she would get distracted by the most breathtakingly stunning katydids and beetles when collecting data in Costa Rica or carrying out sustainable farm practices in Ecuador.
Christopher Reyes, PhD
Founder, founding CTO
Chris is a creative biophysicist and accomplished entrepreneur. Although he got his start in research and community work at Cal Berkeley, his first entrepreneurial successes began with throwing and operating highly lucrative house parties (check out a video time machine!). Fascinated by science and health, he buckled down to develop his passion for discovering new treatment options for people suffering from debilitating and terminal diseases. Then, bothered by the “same old way of doing business,” he chucked the traditional approaches and founded multiple biotech companies to deliver effective results and respond directly to patient needs. Visits to Cacao farms made him grasp strongly the link between personal health and sustainable farming (potential loss of cacao, hops and chili peppers is making him antsy). —Chris built HOVE to help all of us plug away effortlessly at improving our personal health and community.
