NameFace is a game-changing web solution that quickly and accurately identifies the names of public figures. It is a vast, intelligent, and ultimately automated archive of faces and names that will assist photographers, public relations companies and anybody else that needs to match a face to a name, in an invaluable way.
Daniela Kirsch worked in technology for over 17 years, and helped create numerous German tech companies including HelloPlugin, and worked with Mercedes Benz, Telecom, Adidas, MTV and more. Being one of the few women with technical expertise, she helped develop the first German websites and e-commerce shops working for Pixelpark, one of the biggest web-agencies in Germany since 1999.
Steve Eichner is a professional event photographer who has worked for over 25 years in NYC. His work has appeared in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, WWD and many other titles. If there’s an event worth documenting in New York, there’s a good chance that Steve will be there. Steve understands the need for NameFace, and having spent his entire career as an event photographer, he has spotted the missing link between photographers and the metadata of their photos. Steve and Daniela met over Tinder and the two are now business and romantic partners.
