Brian Ropp

Product Manager and Strategist

Hi there!

After over a decade of working as a product and technology leader at a variety of startups focused on the kids and family market, I'm searching for my next challenge!

Most recently, I co-founded and served as CEO of My Epik, a company focused on solving the problem of kids gifting through development of Epik Card, the first multi-vendor gift card for kids featuring a curated set of retail partners. We encourage families to give Epik Card to reward acts of kindness or discipline with passion in music, arts, academics and sports.

Previously, I led as CTO of Fruit Punch Music, with a mission to provide parents with fun, safe and affordable audio content for their family, and as Engineering Director of Fanlala, one of the top tween entertainment news web properties.

I've always had a creative bend, with interests in video production, graphic design and photography. I'm always looking for unique, beautiful and elegant solutions to problems – it has to function well and look great.

I'm currently based in North Carolina, but am a New Jersey boy at heart. In my free time, you can find me either relaxing with family, playing vintage computer games (Maniac Mansion, anyone?) or, depending on the time of year, cooking funnel cakes/playing an Elf, with my friends at the Kiwanis Club.

I'm passionate about products that leverage technology to positively impact people's lives.
If you are too, let's get in touch!
