Thinkamingo Inc is an independent developer of family-friendly, education-focused, mobile media. It was founded on 11-11-11 by Ann and Jon Adair.
Her background is as a professional bassoonist, holding both Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Music Performance. Also, she has advanced study in music theory and composition, and has been an adjunct instructor in graduate-level music theory. Ann has 25+ years of experience as a professional musician in a variety of areas not only playing the bassoon, but as a pianist, organist, accompanist, and music director.
Outside of the musical arena, she’s been married for 19 years to Jon Adair, co-founder of Thinkamingo, and they homeschool their two wonderful kids, Elizabeth and William. Ann’s other interests include scouting, knitting, alternative education, writing, gaming, and fencing.
Jon brings a background in software engineering, graphic design, and marketing. He also has a passion for mobile devices back to early Psion and Palm devices through today’s Android, Apple iOS, and Windows phones and tablets. Jon holds a bachelor’s in Computer Science and completed coursework for a PhD in Computer Science with minors in Mathematics and Psychology. In addition to being a homeschooling parent, he has years of experience teaching preschool and elementary age children in church settings. Jon is active in his son’s Cub Scout pack and coaching / mentoring his daughter’s award-winning FIRST Tech Challenge team, Team Brick Buddies. If he ever had any free time, Jon would be off taking photos, playing with amateur radio, playing board or role-playing games, or backpacking.
