Chris Badgett

Founder & CEO

Chris started learning about online education on a glacier in Alaska. He's created courses on everything from organic gardening to wood working. He is passionate about helping other entrepreneurial educators find success and create impact.


Thomas Levy

Founder & CTO

Thomas is a self-taught programmer, a published poet, and he takes his mediocre amateur-level competitive weightlifting very seriously. He's the architect and lead developer and definitely has more chest hair than you.



Kathy Gilchrist

Director of Numbers 'n Stuff

Kathy is a math nerd and likes all things to do with numbers and spreadsheets. She is passionate about education, and she spends a lot of time volunteering. Kathy wants to live in a world filled with kindness, well informed people, and cats.


Ali Mathis

Happiness Director

Ali is a project manager, vegetarian, runner, writer, and mother (not necessarily in that order). She taught herself WordPress to design a school website and has never looked back. She loves working with people to find the right product or solution for their online course.
