Niles Xi’an Lichtenstein

Niles Xi’an Lichtenstein is a writer and community focused entrepreneur that grew up in the People’s Republic of Berkeley and enjoys giving back to the area he grew up and creating platforms for storytelling and empowerment through digital content, media and mobile technology.

He is the co-founder of The History Project, which started when his father died, and he realized that his father’s story was scattered across a set of clickable files in the cloud. So he was inspired to “reinvent the modern time capsule” to help people reconnect with the moments that matter to them. Niles is also the board chairman (and an alumnus) of Youth Speaks, the largest youth spoken word non-profit, empowering youth to write, perform and amplify their voice on issues important to them.
