Meet Our Team

  • Vipin Goyal

    CEO, Co-Founder

    Vipin is responsible for keeping the lights on at SideTour. At one point he used to have a life outside of work. However, he abandoned all of that in pursuit of helping others enjoy a world of experiences.

  • Brian Cotlove

    Host Development

    Brian is helping SideTour grow by finding the most unique and creative people around the world to host experiences. He was so captivated by what SideTour is doing that he gave up a life drinking wine in the south of France to join the team.

  • Lee Edwards


    Lee is in charge of telling our computers what to do so that you can discover and book SideTours on your computer. He used to build robots for the military, and has never, ever, used that line to impress a date.

  • Annabel Fowler

    Host Development

    Annabel’s goal is to find amazingly unique and incredibly fun SideTour experiences. In fact, she was so enamored with SideTour's mission, she left her pursuit of law to join the team. She was born and raised in Houston, Texas and made the move to the Northeast for college. She loves cooking, traveling, exploring and everything Cornell.

  • Rachel Goldberg

    Host Development/Editorial

    Rachel puts the awesomeness of SideTour experiences into words, and sometimes dabbles in host dev to find said awesome experiences. She is a devout peanut butter consumer and was voted 'Funniest Girl' in high school, which is an accolade she is apparently still desperately clinging to.

  • Minesh Mistry

    Co-Founder, Ops

    Minesh handles business operations and finance for the company, which means he has the final say on all purchases. The rest of the team has learned he doesn’t consider desktop organizers or coat racks necessary expenses.

  • Nick Monje


    Nick is also working to build the technology that makes Sidetour go. He is hedging his bets that when the robot uprising happens, they'll still need software engineers.

  • Suri Ratnatunga


    Suri basically gets to hang out with the most awesome people in New York. When she’s not meeting you on a SideTour or shooting you an email, she’s making obscure references to comic books or enjoying a well-crafted cocktail.

  • Spencer Smith

    Host Development

    Spencer spends his time finding the most captivating and talented people to bring to SideTour. If he's not doing that, the chances you'll find him in an Asian food restaurant of any type are alarmingly high.

  • Mark Webster

    Co-Founder, Product

    Mark (or just, Webster) is in charge of stepping up our product game and making sure people like using SideTour. He has lived in New York City since the mid-90’s, and is fairly confident he can drink you under the table.

  • Scott Werner


    Scott is part of the team making all the new SideTour website features a reality. He left Pittsburgh for New York and SideTour, but still plans on wearing his Evgeni Malkin jersey when the Rangers or Islanders play the Pens.
