Our Story

Remember that time you had to make a presentation and it was really easy and it took less time than you expected and it came out looking awesome?

neither do we.

We've all been there: Your presentation is at 9am tomorrow morning, but instead of rehearsing you’re up at midnight drawing circles and lining up arrows. This can’t be the best way to build a presentation, but until now it’s all we’ve had.

we're presentation people.

The Beautiful.AI team has spent decades working on other people’s presentations—writing them, designing them, and building software to make them. During that time, we’ve watched way too many people bang their heads against the wall trying to turn ideas into visual presentations. And so we decided to do something about it.

We think there’s a better way.

We believe that the only way to guarantee good presentation design is to build the intelligence of a designer directly into the tool. Our first product suggests ways to visualize your ideas and makes it incredibly easy to customize the design. It knows what’s on your slide, what you might add later, and how to adjust the layout when you do. (And we’d like to think it has pretty good taste, too.)

We’re just getting started.

We are constantly working to make Beautiful.AI better—adding more templates and design options, improving our recommendations, and making it even easier for you to do beautiful work. Whatever it takes to help you inspire more people, close more deals, win more pitches, and get more sleep.

the Beautiful.ai TEAM

Mitch Grasso
CEO & Founder

I was the Founder and CEO of SlideRocket, the first presentation software that let you collaborate with teammates. That was cool. This is cooler.

Lou Giacalone, Jr.
COO

I’ve been an executive, founder, independent consultant, and keynote speaker—so I’ve built every kind of presentation under the sun.

Jill Callan
CMO

I cannot tell you the number of times I’ve labored over how to turn my ideas into a visual story the night before a presentation. No matter how much time I spent tweaking text boxes and trying to make the information look visually beautiful, I ended up sending my presentation to my creative team to design at the last minute. Enter Beautiful.AI. #gamechanger I look forward to helping our community make work beautiful.

Diana Bitting
Marketing

I'm thrilled to be part of the Beautiful team doing what I love to do: Transforming companies into brands. It's what gets me out of bed every morning; working collaboratively and passionately to define and refine how a company is perceived by the public. When I'm not brainstorming content ideas, I'm either redecorating my house for the 15th time, practicing yoga, or cuddling up with my two kiddos on the couch for story time.

Deepali Agarwal
Director of Quality

I have overall 11+ years of experience in QA and love to automate stuff! My aim has always been to make the product as high quality as possible and I always like to think from the customer’s point of view. I am originally from India but came to US in 2010 for Masters and since then settled here. I love music, movies, reading and cooking!

Ben Janik
Engineering

I’ve spent most of my career building tools to help people visualize data. Confession: I never made a presentation before I joined Beautiful.AI.

Fatima Sbeih
Customer Success

My job is to make sure every experience you have with our product is a great one. If you find a bug before I do, I might just buy you a cup of coffee.

Aswin Prakash
Engineering

I'm an engineer here. I enjoy building BEAUTIFUL stuff for you guys to try out! Haha get it?? Yeah I'm cool.

Harrison Ng
Software Engineer

It's been a few years since I made my last presentation. I could remember the days where everyone in the team was fiddling with the presentation template, and consistently creating inconsistencies… Until I joined Beautiful.AI, I never realized what was missing from current presentation software. Strive to improve the overall experience of our product.

Jay Friedman
Engineer

I’m a dude with a serious passion for aesthetics and close to fifteen years of experience wrangling Javascript to create clean, eye-catching interactive content. Beautiful.AI truly takes the pain out of creating professional, slick presentations, and I’m proud to be working on a product that empowers folks to generate top-notch material. When I’m not writing code, I'm making music and co-hosting a comedy podcast.

Danayit Rufael
Exec Admin/Office Mgr

My goal at Beautiful.AI is to make sure everyone feels comfortable in the roles they play and that their daily transitions are as smooth as possible. I've lived in Saudi Arabia, India and Eritrea, my country of origin. With a multi-cultural background, I've experienced working with people from different walks of life. It has given me an appreciation and respect for all cultures, because of the likenesses and differences we all share.

Diana Nasledov

Greetings! QA's my passion. I've been hunting bugs and testing software for over 7+ years! I'm here to make sure our user's have the best experience possible. Bug Huntress Di on duty! In my down time, I enjoy snuggling with my adorable toddler and working up a sweat kickboxing!

Ken Gracia

I'm the main point of contact for any customer related issues here at Beautiful.AI. When things get ugly, my expertise is to help make it beautiful. If you ever find yourself in this situation, don't be afraid to drop me a chat or email.
