About Me

I'm Charlie Stigler, an entrepreneur and software developer based in San Francisco. I attended Columbia University for one year, and am now taking time off to start my own company, a video interactivity platform named Zaption. I am supported by Peter Thiel's "20 Under 20" Thiel Fellowship.


My current project is Zaption, a video interactivity platform for the web. My previous work includes the open-source study application SelfControl (featured in Wired, MacWorld, the Washington Post, and elsewhere) and other open-source and commercial software projects.


In my free time I am a competitive endurance athlete. I rowed with Columbia's lightweight rowing squad, and previously ran on my high school's cross country and track teams. With the rest of my time I enjoy the company of good music and good friends.
