Education and career

Eric Nakagawa My Experiences Fundraising in Hawaii and Silicon Valley Paubox

Prior to co-founding I Can Has Cheezburger? Nakagawa worked as a Software Developer in Honolulu, Hawaii. "In early 2007, after a bad day at work, Eric Nakagawa asked his friend (and future co-founder) Kari Unebasami to send him a photo of something cute to make him feel better. She sent over a few cat images, superimposed with phonetically spelled phrases, or LOLspeak, and the two knew they’d found their calling." Nakagawa and Unebasami sold I Can Has Cheezburger? to Ben Huh in July 2007. ICHC was instrumental in bringing animal-based image macros and lolspeak into mainstream usage.
