The Team

Harvey Duan


Harvey is not the perfect writer and has often asked his family and friends to help edit his essays. However, as he was applying to b-school, he wished there were students who were willing to provide him feedback. Now at Haas, he and his classmates are trying to solve this problem by connecting current MBA students with future applicants.

For the last five years, Harvey has been busy with his event ticket company www.slickseats.com. When he is not working on school projects, running his company and spending time with his wife and dog, you can find him working on the next big thing. He holds a BA in Rhetoric from Cal Berkeley.

Pawan Nrisimha


Pawan is an MBA student at the Haas school of Business, University of California, Berkeley. UberEssays was conceived on a bus ride with his class-mates, with an ambition of connecting applicants to reviewers that have "been there, done that"!

For the last 9+ years, Pawan has been working in the semiconductor industry developing chips for low-power devices such as smart phones and storage products. An entrepreneur at heart, Pawan co-founded SmartPark, a company that designed low-cost vehicle sensors for intelligent parking applications. He holds an MSEE from University of Illinois and a BSEE from BITS, Pilani.

Kartik Shah


Kartik is a first year MBA student at Haas School of Business, Berkeley. Alongside, he is working full-time with a communications company as a Sr. Software Engineer. He also holds a Masters degree in Computer engineering from University of Southern California and a Bachelors in Electronics Engineering from University of Mumbai, India.

Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, Kartik was always on the lookout for passionate co-founders and innovative ideas. And when an opportunity to build UberEssays arose, Kartik jumped right in with his technical skills.

Manoj Muthavarapu

Manoj is a Product Developer at an analytics start-up in Hyderabad, India. After graduating from BITS, Pilani with a Bachelors in Computer Science, he went on to work for Oracle in Bangalore, where he spent close to three years working on cutting edge web technologies and Rich Internet Application frameworks.
