Aliza and Derek come from pretty different backgrounds. Alize was born, raised and settled in Syracuse, NY. Derek is a native Brooklynite who has had various jobs all over the country. One common theme throughout their lives was their interest in technology and the way that ever changing world impacts everyone's daily lives. Throughout the course of their careers they have both seen the impact that the work environment can have on a persons happiness across all aspects of their world. Together they started Spark Orange in an effort to bridge the technology gap and also create a really cool place for their employees to come and work.
