Our People

We are a team of multi-faceted people who know that, in order to transform the way human beings learn throughout the world (including us!), we have to be disciplined yet compassionate, humble yet fierce. Our work is rooted in love: love for the ones we want to serve, love of problems to solve, love of places, principles and people to discover, love for our greater selves and those of our peers. Every member of our team is incredibly agile because uncharted territory is our favorite kind of territory.
