Jan van den Hengel
Chief Operating Officer
Jan is an avid traveler having visited over 45 countries as well as every US State.
A friend once told Jan that the coolest thing about having been to every US state is not about the bragging rights but more about being able to relate to every American in some small way because you have been to their region. Jan thinks this applies internationally as well and this is why he loves to travel.
Being of Dutch heritage (as are all of Tripsite's founders), Jan has been riding a bike since he can remember. His first bicycle was orange. When not riding his bicycle (now considerably larger than his first), Jan enjoys reading, technology, and spends a great deal of time trying to make Tripsite a wonderful destination on the internet. Prior to joining Tripsite, Jan had an extensive career in technology on Wall Street and eventually Silicon Valley. Jan currently calls San Francisco home and loves riding the many bike trails the Bay Area has to offer.

My family and I currently live near AT&T park which is in the SOMA area of San Francisco. The route I usually take loops around the ball park and follows waters edge all the way across the Golden Gate Bridge into Marin County. Read More
