Trent Lapinski is a San Francisco based entrepreneur and product development executive who has been on the forefront of innovation in the WordPress industry. He founded CyberChimps Responsive WordPress Themes in 2011, and was responsible for well over 4.9 million downloads worth of responsive WordPress themes and templates. He helped millions of people launch tens of millions of mobile friendly websites globally, and bootstrapped CyberChimps to well over a million dollars in revenue without investors or advisors.
His life experiences and accomplishments read more like fiction than reality, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. Trent is a passionate, honest, truth seeking perfectionist constantly pushing himself and those around him forward.
Trent has an undying quench for wisdom and knowledge and is not afraid to ask the questions and say the things no one else will. This of course gets him into a world of trouble, yet curiosity continues to rule his world.
He has been using a Macintosh computer since the age of 4-years old, grew up backstage at the concerts his Father produced, and ran an Apple news and rumor website in high school. He tested out of high school to attend college early, and then dropped out of college to work for two of the former founders of Myspace at a startup in West Hollywood, in Los Angeles. He eventually moved on to work for Playboy, and a medical research company, before starting CyberChimps.
He is currently seeking new opportunities and has launched an incubator and consulting company called MysticLabs.
