Treseder served as a U.S. Marine between 2001 and 2011, first in infantry then in civil affairs. He has deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. After graduating from Stanford University, Treseder tried out a few startups and was lucky enough to settle in San Francisco, where he met and married Oluwadara, the love of his life.
