Who are we?
We're a small group of students based out of Southern California. Mechanical keyboards have been a hobby for us for a little bit, but each of us have fallen for the hobby in our own little way. We want to share our passion for it through offering premium products to the community at competitive prices, all the while never compromising on the quality of our service. That way, our customers will be able to enjoy the hobby as much as we do. Unlike some other companies, we want to constantly iterate through cycles of improvement, always seeking to improve and cater those of upmost importance, our customers. Knowing this, please let us know if there are areas of improvement that come to mind!
Meet the team
Aaron // President 🤓
Hi everyone! I'm Aaron, the president of heebie keebies! Thank you for joining us on our little venture into the realm of custom mechanical keyboards. When Dana and I started our journey with heebie keebies, we could never have imagined the positive response that we received from the community. Everyone has been very kind to us so far, and we hope that everyone's able to experience the same satisfaction that we do with this hobby.
A little bit about myself: I am a recent graduate from UCI with a B.S. in Computer Science and I am currently working as an SDE during the daytime! In my spare time, I'm looking to bring everything that I've learned during undergrad to make heebie keebies the most customer-centric keyboard shop out there. The store is a bit of a side project for me to do outside of my career, but I think it's definitely good practice for me to learn more about the commerce side of the hobby I love.
Dana // Creative Lead 🤧
Hello keeb enthusiasts! I'm Dana, the in-house designer here at heebie keebies and the person behind Ki. My role here at heebie keebies allows me to tap into my passion of creating in my spare time. Any creative outlets for me include jewelry-making, painting, or dabbling with Adobe Illustrator; I derive great fulfillment from all of them.
Ki came into existence after heebie keebies was agreed upon as the brand's name! When Aaron came to me seeking a catchy name for the brand, the only requirement was to include "keeb". Within a few minutes of throwing out possible names, the phrase "heebie-jeebies" popped into my head. Heebie-jeebies...keeb...heebie keebies! Because of the name, the natural answer for the brand representative was a ghost, though Ki's shy disposition means he's the one who gets the heebie jeebies more than the people he accidentally scares!
Justin // Fulfillment Lead 😑
Hello fellow keyboard addicts! I’m Justin, a current Southern California resident and the fulfillment lead here at heebie keebies. Like many of you, I have been hooked on everything keyboard related: switches, keycaps, the boards themselves, you name it. Ever since I was introduced to this hobby by a friend in high school, I have been binge-watching keyboard related videos on YouTube and Twitch. I've also joined a ton of groupbuys for just about anything I find interesting. After graduating highschool, I chose the path of enrolling at my local community college in hopes of transferring to one of my target four-year universities. My passion for business and customer service, something that originated back in my middle school days, is what ultimately led me to pursue a B.A. in Business Economics. In an effort to combine the two things I am most passionate about, business and keyboards, I took on the role of fulfillment lead; I'm both honored and grateful to be a part of the team here at heebie keebies!
Brandon // UI/UX Designer 🤠
Hello heebie keebie customers! I'm Brandon, a user interface and user experience designer born in Southern California but currently studying and working in New York City. I've been a close friend of Aaron's since middle school, and I decided to join him on this adventure as a UI/UX designer and photographer for the website. I've loved the rebranding process of heebie keebies, and I hope you all will love the result too. When I'm not designing, I like to play video games and analyze music production in my spare time. :)
If you'd like to work with me in the future, you can view my work and portfolio at https://brnwin.github.io/. Happy keebing!
Ki // small ghost 👻
Hello! I'm Ki, a little ghost the size of a dollop of cream cheese.
In my free time, I like to haunt switch sockets of keyboards, so please don't squish me if you see me! I'm also a little shy, so I may only pop up every once in a while. 👉👈 My Reddit is u/heebiekeebies!
