Re: Umair Khan, CEO
Our dad started SecretBuilders in 2007 and it is so cool - we talk about new ideas for SecretBuilders ALL the time. He has always loved math (really!) and was a math teacher when he was only 17! Then he went to MIT to do more Math and some engineering but also literature and creative writing. Then he worked for Intel and helped design microprocessors. Then he left to start software companies like Clickmarks and Folio3 and Verisium. But he loves SecretBuilders best of all. Even more than he loves Cricket. He got the idea for SecretBuilders like 10 years ago when he thought: wouldn't it be great to be like Alice and go down the rabbit hole into Wonderland? We are glad he finally decided to make it happen. But he never listens to us when we ask for 100,000,000 Silver coins.

Re: Bob Brattesani, VP Creative Design
Our dad makes amazing, cool drawings for a living. Yes, that's his actual work. He even has a cool art studio at home. He made all the lands you see in Secretbuilders even though he says lots of people made them but we think it was really mostly him. He made Star Wars toys at Galoob and then at Wild Planet he came up with Verticon which won Toy of the year. He also worked on fun projects for Avantgo, Razorback, and Leapfrog. We really love the tree house he made in SecretBuilders but he needs to make a lot more pets. And he needs to give us a lot more time on the computer so we can, you know, help build SecretBuilders.

Re: Dr. Charles Browne, Senior Education Advisor
Our dad is a university professor in the beautiful city of Tokyo, Japan. He tells us he's a famous vocabulary linguist but we don't really know what that means. We are far more impressed with all the language learning software he helped to design like EnglishCentral, goFluent, WordEngine and a whole bunch of others, mostly because it gives us a chance to play with all his iPads, Kindles and iPhones. Though SecretBuilders and all the other things he helped to make are really fun to play with, we were kind of shocked when he told us that the games were all secretly trying to teach us stuff at the same time! We sometimes miss him because he's always traveling around the world to make big presentations about what he's doing, but we sure love the great presents he always gives us when he gets back!

Re: Fawad Qadri, VP Product Development
Our dad loves computer games and video games which is great because when we grow up he will have to let us play them too. He is always on secretbuilders.com seeing how people like it. He did computer science in college and then worked in computer systems for many years at Clickmarks. Then he began to design web software and was the one who designed out SecretBuilders. Others like Stefan's dad then take his design and make it into code. But our dad listens to what kids are saying and designs it into SecretBuilders. I like the Tum-Tum board on SecretBuilders but we want to have a toy train in our homes there.

Re: Georgi Marinoff, Chief Architect
My dad went to Sofia University and he was the best Math student there - at least that is what our grandmom says. Next he worked in game development for many years at Haemimont Games and before that at Telekontrol OOD. Now, at SecretBuilders, my dad does all the complex software stuff and manages all the people in the office in Bulgaria. He works very hard to make lots of kids happy, sometimes all night. My mom thinks he works too much. But then there are a lot of kids to be made happy.
Re: Linda Lou Hellofs, Director Business Development
My mum loves learning. After she had worked in marketing and advertising for seventeen years she went back to school to get a doctorate in Business. She taught marketing and entrepreneurship for eleven years at the University of Washington and UC Berkeley. Now she works at SecretBuilders in marketing and business development helping get kids excited about reading and learning. I wish SecretBuilders was around when I was younger - learning would have been a lot more fun.
