Adam Leibsohn

Chief Operating Officer, Giphy


I love technology.
And I love people.

I spend a lot of time thinking about how the two work together; the impact of technology, its role in our daily lives, and where it might take us (or where we might take it).

I believe successful innovation is as much about understanding human behavior and human drivers as it is about harnessing the cutting edge. That’s why even the smallest inventions can have some of the biggest impacts when applied correctly.

It’s the insightful mixing and matching of circuits and habits that creates progress. And, it’s at those moments of progress when we get that ‘butterflies-in-our-stomach’ glimpse into the future.

I live for helping create those moments… anyway I can.
