Andrew Konya – remesh inc.
CEO, remesh inc.
Andrew is co-founder, CEO, and wizard of Remesh. He started Remesh when he was a PhD candidate in computational physics, inspired by friends from areas of the world in conflict that just wanted to be better understood. To try to help, he decided to use his chops in artificial intelligence to devise a way to interact with people and understand large groups much more authentically, and voilà, Remesh was born. While no longer thinking about how to measure the universe everyday, he applies his algorithms to power Remesh's innovative technology. Fueled by his daily chocolate muffin, he is the heart and soul of Remesh.
Outside of the office, Andrew can be found sketching candid life around him and writing, playing, and recording music throughout New York City.
