  • Sidd Singhal

    Brand Manager

    Sidd was born in Bombay, India but moved to Boston, MA at an early age, cementing him as a die-hard Boston sports fan and a truth-talking east coaster. After graduating from Dartmouth College, he went to work on Wall Street as an investment banker specializing in M&A. While he learned a ton, his "truth-talking nature" wasn't the best cultural fit and he leaped at the chance to work at a food private equity firm in Dallas, TX. That experience kick-started Sidd's passion for food and its impact on people and the planet, a journey that 10-years later brought him to Austin, TX. When he's not engaged in debates about food, sports, or leadership, you can find Sidd chilling in the city, sipping a beverage and listening to some sweet tunes.

    Marketing Planner

    Emily hails from a small Texas town—so small, most of her fellow Texans haven’t heard of it. Her “wild and free” spirit eventually led her to Austin, where she found a home amongst the rabid wolfpack she now calls family. A film acting student and character on the local comedy scene, Emily is passionate about the environment, enjoys finding new ways to recycle, and loves to expand her knowledge of health and nutrition. When she’s not telling bad jokes at EPIC HQ, she can be found with her dog, doing yoga, doing yoga with her dog, or listening to an obscene amount of 90’s pop music.

    Most EPIC Adventure:

    Hiking on Mount Hood and "glamping" on the Columbia River. There may or may not have been a Sasquatch sighting.

    Senior Warehouse Team Member

    Mike grew up a military brat, raised all over before settling down in Texas. He began his career creating graphics for a t-shirt company which led him to explore jobs in printing, purchasing, and warehousing. His career eventually led him to a small Austin warehouse that sold dog grooming products and then to a huge fulfillment warehouse that was pushing out over 60,000 orders per day, where he averaged 80-hour work weeks during the holidays.
