Jake Nickell is Threadless's fearless entrepreneurial leader. Driven by a passion for learning new things, whether it’s how to create awesome t-shirts or design and program an e-commerce website, Jake’s main focus is running the worldwide, hugely successful business that Threadless is today. A creative, unconventional thinker, he constantly keeps Threadless one step ahead by encouraging out-of-the-box ideas and challenging the “business” side of running a business. Jake maintains his geek cred through a love for programming, and when he’s not working, he’s busy hanging out with his wife Shondi, daughter Arli, and son Dash.
