(Co-Founder & CEO) – Charissa is a long time Bunco Veteran. She was first
sucked in by friends nearly 10 years ago and has been a fan ever since. In addition to being a
full-time mother of three, Charissa brings with her 15 years of experience doing Community
Organizing & Volunteering for organizations like her kids school in Oregon where she completely
revamped their annual school auction, more than tripling the fundraiser's income for the school.
She also operated an Oregon based doula business, a service that helped new moms adjust to life
after the birth of their child. She has been a Den Mother and run the Popcorn and Candy sales many
times over for Boy Scouts of America in both Oregon and California. She also loves volunteering
for Feed My Starving Children. Most recently she has been running the twice-annual book fair at
her kids school in British Columbia, Canada.
(Co-Founder & CTO) – Ethan first played Bunco at an elementary school birthday party and he hasn't forgotten it since. Ethan founded his first company, Kattare Internet Services as a sophomore in college at Oregon State University in 1997. Kattare specialized in website design and hosting and grew rapidly through the internet boom years. After promoting his close friend Nick Hayward to CEO, Ethan moved on to work as a VP at Buffalo Studios, a Santa Monica start-up later acquired by Playtika. During his tenure at Buffalo Studios & Playtika Ethan worked on Caesars Total Rewards Social, Bingo Blitz, Bingo Rush, Bingo Rush 2, Faro Blitz, & Penguinauts games.
(CMO) – Matt used to be what was called a "hardcore gamer", then he got old and had kids. Now he primarily just plays Lego games and anything that features "Toys to Life" figures. He also used to lead all marketing and public relations efforts for PlayStation in Canada but then moved his family to the mountains where he could focus on more important things, like skiing. He came out of retirement to work with the fine folks at Yapping Moose because he loves social games and already spends 11 hours a day on Facebook anyways. Matt is looking forward to building an active community around Bunco Bonko, if we can ever get him to stop running marathons and do some actual work.
