Who is Austin Kevitch?
Austin Scott Kevitch was born on July 5, 1991, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Andrew and Lisa Kevitch.
He has a sister, Lindsey, born on December 17, 1992, and a brother, Tristan, born in June 1997.
In high school, Kevitch excelled in sports including football, basketball and track and field at Germantown Academy.
In May 2010, Kevitch was selected as one of the USA’s top high school football players to play for the National Football Team, during which time he played against France’s national team in the “Global Bowl France” event.
The same year, Kevitch embarked on a university degree at Brucknell University, a private establishment in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.
He studied business management and computer engineering included a year studying psychology at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, in 2013.
He was also part of the university’s Bucknell Bison football team.
During his time at university, Kevitch debuted his professional career, working as a product designer at Scholly, a software company helping students win scholarships.
After leaving Scholly in 2013, Kevitch co-founded software development company Brighten – a social app that let users send anonymous compliments to friends.
The app was born out of a tragedy, when he lost one of his friends in a climbing incident.
People were sharing happy memories of his friend on social media but Kevitch realised that, in life, “we rarely tell our friends how much they mean to us. Instead, we wait until they’re gone”.
After over six years as the CEO of Brighten, Kevitch co-founded dating app Lox Club in March 2020.
His net worth is estimated at $5million.

Are Austin Kevitch and Camila Cabello dating?
In photos taken on Wednesday, June 15, 2022, Camilla Cabello seems to have moved on from her break-up with Shawn Mendes after a two-year relationship.
The singer is rumored to be dating Kevitch after she was photographed smiling during an evening stroll with the dating app founder.
In the photos obtained by Page Six, the duo are seen laughing and looking relaxed as they spent the night out together.
While there were so signs of PDA between the pair, they are following each other on Instagram.
Camilla and Kevitch’s reps are yet to comment.
In February 2022, Kevitch confirmed he was single but looking to date, telling Bustle: “I definitely want a girlfriend, but also being single helps with running Lox Club because I know all the pain points that single people feel and I know exactly what I would want in an app.
“I think once I’m living ‘happily ever after’ with someone running off into the sunset, I won’t be as in touch with all the annoying things about dating.”
What is Lox Club?
Kevitch launched the Lox Club members-only exclusive dating app over the pandemic, after going through a bad break-up, during which time his Jewish family were badgering him to find someone.
He said: “I was at the age where my grandma would joke, ‘When are you going to bring home a nice Jewish girl?’
“I don’t like dating apps; they’re very inorganic and awkward.
“So I wanted to make a more fun, immersive experience where maybe you’ll meet people as a by-product and not take it so seriously.”
The app is designed for “Jews and non-Jews with ridiculously high standards”.
The app’s success has attracted investments from a number of personalities including Atlanta rapper Lil Yachty and rapper Bhad Bhabie, famous for her “Cash me ousside” phrase.
