I'm the Founder and co-creator of Sophia and I love to create new things. I have a deep passion for education and technology, and I spend a lot of time thinking about how they could come together more effectively. I earned my bachelor's degree in U.S. History from the University of Wisconsin and my MBA from the University of Minnesota. I'm also the proud father of three daughters who give me a lot of great feedback on how to improve Sophia. I hope you'll send me your thoughts and ideas about Sophia. You can also feel free to share your thoughts on education, technology, American history (my personal passions are presidential and immigration history), music, songwriting, or baseball. I’d love to hear from you. - Don
ESL tutor, passionate about content strategy, web standards, typography, and intercultural usability. And anything else that strikes my fancy.
In August 2012, I completed my PhD in Work and Human Resource Education with a specialization in Adult Education from the University of Minnesota. I've taught study skills and library research workshops for undergraduates and graduate students there since moving to Minnesota from Florida in 2006. In my spare time, I work with teens as a life coach, helping them to prepare for college. I also work with teens in danger of dropping out of high school. Over the summer, I've spent some time helping Sophia grow by creating packets on study skills, scholarly research, citations and creative writing. I also review packets here at Sophia for academic soundness. Feel free to say hello on facebook or send me an e-mail! I'm always happy to help. -Kristina
