Campika Team

JT Pacheco

JT Pacheco

CEO

I was tapped for my first CEO role at age 6, when I took the helm of a subsidiary of dad’s business: a hot dog cart. My father, a popular San Diego restaurateur, provided me with the hot dogs and chili for my first startup, while Martha, head of the wait staff, provided me with the best malts I’ve ever had in my life. Out of that first energizing startup experience grew my passion for business management and for numbers.

A degree from Stanford University, Business School from the same, and two successful startups later, I’m happy to be able to combine my love for the outdoors and for business in my daily work life with Campika. I’m excited to be part of this scary-smart, energetic team and to have the privilege of helping you discover the wonders nature has waiting for you!

Andy Thomas

CTO

When I was 5, my parents wedged me and my two older brothers into the station wagon, pointed the car toward Alaska, and set off. I’ve been camping and adventuring ever since, enjoying outdoor recreation in all 50 U.S. states.

When I’m not outdoors, you’ll find me leading teams of software engineers. I’ve held many leadership roles in software engineering, including CTO and Senior Vice President at various companies from large corporations like Microsoft to small startups. I’m delighted to have the opportunity to use my skills to develop products that enrich people’s lives. I’m excited to bring you tools that help and encourage you to get outdoors.

Tim Finnell

Lead Developer

Hi all, Tim Finnell here. I’m the lead developer at Campika, and work on our apps. Frequently the outdoors is a place that people go to disconnect from technology. With that in mind, I try to develop tools that minimize the amount of time our users spend planning their next adventure, so that they can focus on enjoying it.

I have a strong technical background in computer science, and love solving problems through code. When I’m not coding, I enjoy trail running in the North West, even when it’s a little wet. I am a Gemini.

Sierra Murphy

Sierra Murphy

Junior Programmer

Hi, my name is Sierra, and I’m a programmer, sponsored snowboarder, and an all around lover of the outdoors. I grew up splitting my time between the warm beaches of Hawaii and the snowy peaks of Colorado, so my love for exploring was inevitable from the start. I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a Bachelor’s of Science in Computer Science and walked away with and a second place finish in Red Bull Snow Wars finals in 2013. Whenever I am not busy converting coffee, my second favorite thing, into code, you’ll find me in the mountains snowboarding.

Outside of snowboard season, I love car camping, visiting national and state forests, coding, doodling, and reading. In the past, planning my outdoor adventures has been a cumbersome endeavor at best, even after years of experience gathering information and mapping trips. Campika is the type of resource I always wished existed, and I am thrilled that I am not the only one who feels this way. I am excited to work for a company that aims to improve the types of experiences that I plan my life around.

Accounting

I am originally from the beautiful island of St. Lucia and currently reside in California. My professional career in the United States began with Deloitte Tax LLP where I worked as a Tax Consultant. I have since moved from the public accounting industry but still remain within the professional services industry. When I’m not working, I enjoy learning new skills, discovering new hobbies and volunteering. I volunteer with United Way through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program and also have or currently volunteer with organizations such as Junior Achievement and Cake4Kids.

Other activities I enjoy during my free time include hiking and walking in parks or along trails. I am very excited about collaborating with Campika as it combines two of my favorite things; the wonderful outdoors and accounting.
