Baschez is a writer, programmer, and designer based in Los Angeles, CA. He created Lex over nights and weekends in the fall of 2022 as an incubation project within Every, his previous company. Prior, he was the first employee at Substack, and co-created Product Hunt. He was also head of product at Gimlet Media, a podcasting network acquired by Spotify in 2019.
