Lawrence Ripsher

Originally from the UK, I now work for Microsoft and live in Seattle, WA. I run Program Management, Design and Editorial for Bing’s User Experiences (www.bing.com). It’s an amazing job in one of the most exciting areas in the industry, Internet Search. I have an incredible team and am fortunate to work alongside some of the best and brightest minds in tech.

I’ve been in the US for 3 years, having lived in Singapore for 5 years prior to here when I ran my own software company, Kikker Interactive. Kikker was acquired by Microsoft in 2008. This year, it’ll be my fifteen year in the tech industry.

I’m fortunate to live a life filled with passions. I’m a vegetarian (kinda vegan), I love animals and there’s few things I enjoy more than road trips or hikes with my wife and 2 dogs. I’m also deeply passionate about photography - one of the easiest activities that allows me to drop into a state of flow. In recent years I’ve become more interested in mindfulness and psychology of happiness - both for personal and professional reasons.
