Hello! We're Team Kibin.

Our Story

When Kibin (rhymes with "gibbon") founder Travis Biziorek was applying to law school in 2011, he realized that his profile was, in his words, "kind of a mess." He knew what he wanted to say, but couldn't quite get there. He turned to family and friends, but they lacked the expertise to provide critical feedback, and when he looked for help online, it wasn't much better. Travis realized that there were probably thousands of students looking for the same level of expert feedback and editing, so he switched gears and created Kibin to fill this niche.

The service has come a long way, and today's Kibin focuses on giving students an extra helping hand that takes their writing from ordinary to amazing. With a top-tier editing service of experienced editors, a massive examples library of over 500,000 essays (and counting), and a blog dedicated to the most common assignments and writing issues students face, Kibin is committed to empowering every student to become a better writer!

Who We Are

Team Kibin consists of 2 employees handling day-to-day operations and a large, global network of freelance editors, making us an iceberg of an organization. With team members located worldwide, we're able to handle customer requests at all hours of the day and night.

Ultimately, our goal is to meet you wherever you are in the writing process by helping you brainstorm more effectively, learn by example, and get the expert feedback you need to improve your grades and your writing skills.

Join the thousands of other students who are using Kibin, and take the stress out of writing!

Meet Our Team

Travis Biziorek, Founder and CEO

Travis earned a BA in Economics with a minor in Biochemistry from St. Mary's College of California. After several years playing professional poker, trading foreign currency at a Chicago hedge fund, and working in management consulting, he decided it was time to try his hand at entrepreneurship. Travis' diverse background made him a great early Kibin editor. Now that Kibin's editing quality has far exceeded his abilities, Travis spends most of his time planning the company's future. When he's not working, he's likely spending time with his family and beloved miniature goldendoodle, Pippa, trading financial markets, or reading a book.

Jim Nguyen, Founder and CTO

Jim studied for his BS in Computer Science at San Jose State University. After college, he spent many years working for large companies such as Novell, Sony Electronics, Bank of America, and Thompson-Reuters. After being approached by Travis with the idea of Kibin, he jumped right in and has been working on it ever since. His role addresses technical challenges that arise from Kibin's rapid growth. He has proven that he can deliver mission critical software and services that millions of users have benefited from.
