Our Team


Chris Bergman, Founder and CEO of FamilyTech, believes that strong families are the foundation of strong communities. As a father and husband, Chris understands the challenges facing families in today’s busy world. As an entrepreneur, Chris has devoted his working life to putting technology in service to families — to “Bring Sanity to Families,” as we say at FamilyTech.

Chris founded FamilyTech (originally ChoreMonster) in 2012, convinced the digital revolution could connect and inspire families, including parents, teens, kids, and couples. Since its inception, FamilyTech has enrolled millions of users who have completed and rewarded tens of millions of tasks.

As part of his leadership at FamilyTech, Chris participated in start-up programs led by Techstars (Disney Accelerator) and The Brandery.

Prior to FamilyTech, Chris was a founding partner in Wiseacre Digital, and held positions of increasing responsibility at several entrepreneurial organizations.

Chris Crowell (Topher)

Topher is the CTO at FamilyTech. He enjoys the outdoors and board games. His favorite chore is probably cooking chili, and his least favorite is the cleanup required after cooking.

Garrett Frey

Garrett answers our users’ questions and helps to fix any problems they encounter. In his free time, he plays video games and watches Twitch streams. His favorite chore is doing laundry, and his least favorite is yard work.

Joe Long

Joe lends a hand with content, social media, and marketing at FamilyTech. When he isn’t doing that, he’s probably studying the latest beer and spirits, adding to his vinyl collection, or watching sports. His favorite chore is unloading the dishwasher, and his least favorite is dusting.

Brian Minor

Brian handles all things Apple and loves creating apps using products he loves. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two boys. When he isn’t working, you can usually expect him to be at Disney World or planning his next trip there. His least favorite chore is anything bathroom related, and his favorite chore is dusting with one of the Dustin wands, cause they are like magic and make it crazy easy to do.

Kim Edwards Pinson

Kim is the Operations Manager at FamilyTech. Her primary role is to provide support to our team through the improvement of processes, tools, and training. She enjoys indoor activities away from the fresh air and the sun with her family. Her least favorite chore is washing dishes, and her favorite chore is when someone else in her household does the dishes.

Jessie Salzbrun

Jessie is our Head of Product, meaning her job is to make sure you LOVE what we build. Outside of the FamilyTech office, Jessie gets her kicks in the kitchen and in the gym (gotta balance out all that baking!) and loves all things design and home renovation. As for chores, she’ll sweep and clean any day, but leaves taking out the trash to her husband.
