Evan Sharp

Evan Sharp was born on 1982 in San Francisco, California, United States. Visual bookmarking site Pinterest has grown in popularity partly thanks to its chief creative officer and cofounder Evan Sharp. Sharp met Silbermann through a mutual friend when he was a student in Columbia University's architecture program and was soon invited to join Cold Brew Labs, a startup Silbermann and third Pinterest cofounder Paul Sciarra had started together. Soon after, Silbermann, Sharp and Sciarra launched the first desktop version of Pinterest in March 2010. It's now valued at $11 billion. As chief creative officer Sharp uses his architecture background to lead the front-end engineering and design divisions of Pinterest.

In 2009 Sharp met Ben Silbermann (who would become Pinterest’s CEO) in New York through a mutual friend. He soon thereafter moved to California, where he worked as a product designer at Facebook before joining Silbermann and Paul Sciarra to focus on Pinterest full-time. Sharp is credited with designing and coding Pinterest and the Pinterest grid for the initial product launch in March 2010. Today he oversees all growth, international, product and design efforts at the San Francisco-based company.


He married Christina McBride in 2014. The couple met while attending college together.
