Untappd Team

Greg Avola (@gregavola)

Co-founder, CTO

Living in the craft beer haven of New York City, Greg is the backend developer for Untappd. After experiencing Rare Vos for the first time, he instantly fell in love with craft beer. While some people enjoy reading books or watching movies, Greg's passion is to code. With that being said, after Tim and Greg came up with the idea of Untappd, Greg had a working prototype the next day. Being able to combine his passion for development and craft beer allowed Untappd to be born.

An incessant doodler in grade school, somehow managed to take that well-honed skill on to a rather successful career as an illustrative designer – much to the chagrin of his beloved sixth-grade teacher, Mrs. Brewer. Now, the creative director for his one-person design shop, he gets to do what he loves – designing logos, corporate identity systems, promotions, packaging design, illustration, print, web design and other interesting stuff for a range of companies and organizations. Clients have included one-person entrepreneurial companies, education facilities, nonprofit organizations, government agencies and major international corporations.
