The krispii Team
krispii is a small, dedicated, growing team with diverse backgrounds and interests. Our common goal is to create exceptional, engaging, and beautiful classroom content while providing a learning platform that will find uses beyond our own imaginations.
Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer
Donna's love of learning and pedagogy, not to mention years of experience in the classroom and governmental levels of education run through the heart of what makes krispii, well, krispii. Donna is also really into amazing design of all kinds, an amazing chef and fantastic skier.
Business Development Representative
Florence represents the business end of our platform. Bold and resourceful, she joined the krispii team after graduating university with a Master's degree in Business Development. From her first day, she has fearlessly directed us towards new sales opportunities and partnerships with other businesses in education. An expert salsa dancer, she brightens up our office with her infectious smile - and she has even managed to teach the rest of us a few really cool dance moves!
Lead full stack developer
Matthias, our lead developer, comes to us from Germany, via Brazil. He speaks more languages than we can count - including Hebrew and Classical Greek - and he has a PhD in Biochemistry. In the short time he has been with us, he has already taken krispii to a whole new level. When we see Matthias in front of his computer rocking classical music on his headphones, we know that magic is about to happen.
Content Creator & Human Resources
Annalisa is a content developer - and pretty much anything else we need her to be. With her background as a lawyer, she has superlative research skills and an amazing capacity for networking. Always ready with a joke or a kind word at precisely the right moment, she is also great at planning team-building activities.
Full stack Developer
Anne comes to us from the West African nation of Benin, via Cuba and Brazil. A graduate student, she recently joined our development team as a programmer. In addition to her computer skills, she can speak a variety of different languages, including Spanish and Portuguese. Always smiling, never complaining, she works quietly to help us take krispii to new levels.
Producer & Product Specialist
Sarah has been co-producing some of our biggest content productions. In addition to her work organizing, communicating and coordinating, she has also been actress, voice, and demo specialist. Sarah's into adventure, speaks at least three languages we know of, and is always up for a challenge.
Editor in Chief & Written Word Lead
Andrew is our triple threat. Former high school educator, philosopher, and writer extraordinaire; his role with us goes beyond writing, driving our writers to be stellar and helping us hone our messages. Black belt in karate, skier, cinephile.
Andrei provides a unique ability for our development team: asking the questions everyone wants to avoid. He is also, at this point, family. Creative and always up for a challenge, he also brings a nearly unfathomable attention to detail, all the while being a dedicated husband and father of two.
Co-Founder & Chief Design Officer
Petros has been working alongside Donna, producing media-centric, educational content for over 12 years with one focus: student & teacher engagement through media that reflects the world around them. He kind of likes cycling and also occasionally tickles the ivories.
