Description :

As Facebook's third employee, Dustin Moskovitz helped kickstart the social network with roommate Mark Zuckerberg from their Harvard dorm. He dropped out of school after two years and joined Zuckerberg in Palo Alto to develop Facebook. He left the company in 2008 to start Asana, a software firm. He is now married to former Wall Street Journal reporter Cari Tuna. Together the couple has built Good Ventures, which has given millions of dollars to causes that range from malaria eradication to marriage equality. The organization also led a $15 million investment round in artificial intelligence company Vicarious FPC. Moskovitz sits on the company's board. A member of the Giving Pledge, he bikes to work and flies commercial. He is also a regular attendee at Burning Man, and told Forbes years ago that he pitches his own tent at the event. In 2013 he blogged about meeting the Winklevoss twins for the first time at the desert festival.
