 Meet the People

Behind every one of our products is a series of important moments. Sudden epiphanies. Coffee-fueled discussions. Testing and evaluating. Playful interactions. Late-night realizations. Meditations. But mostly, a desire to create something worthwhile and useful. We’re people who all bring unique perspectives - some of us dance, some of us play Squash, some of us are actors, and some of us study the psychology of gifted children. And yes, some of us are tech nerds. But we share one common goal: to make a difference for you and your family.
