Matt is a tech entrepreneur who converts technology dreams into realities. He has over 10 years of experience in software engineering and product design which he uses to lead the Thinkific team to redefine the learning experience. If he is not coding or building amazing products, he's probably training for the next triathlon or chasing wind on his kite board.

Matt Payne


Matt enjoys writing code and introducing new and exciting software into the world. The oldest team member, Matt can frequently be heard complaining about kids these days and telling tales of how far he had to walk to school in snowstorms. Matt has been developing software professionally for the last 10 years and is always striving to learn new technologies and paradigms. When he's not in the office, Matt can usually be found riding his bike for long distances or standing in a river waving a fly rod around.

Leibrandt is a producer and videographer with over 6 years of experience in video production. He creates work in which a fascination with the clarity of content and an uncompromising attitude towards conceptual and minimal art can be found.
