    Nomi has been a rabid fan for a long time. She bought Subway to keep "Chuck" on air and can always find the pineapple in "Psych." During her undergraduate years at University of Texas she studied Advertising (BS) and earned certificates in Latino Media and Business Foundations, all while letting the idea for Platypus TV percolate. Now after earning her Master's in New Media Management at Newhouse, Nomi is ready to get this idea launched.

    Sarah started her career in entrepreneurship by purchasing candy from BJ's Wholesale club and reselling it from her locker. Although the principal of her school quickly caught on and ended that endeavor, she had made enough to pay for her babysitting certificate. But mostly, she had been bit by the entrepreneurial bug. With experience in a variety of businesses, Sarah has the expertise and ability to manage this project.
