Gleb is passionate about two things: helping people think more clearly and advancing global flourishing. These passions combined into one when he and his wife, Agnes Vishnevkin, co-founded Intentional Insights in the Winter of 2014. Since that time, Gleb has collaborated with a group of like-minded enthusiasts to translate research on rational thinking, emotional intelligence, and effective giving into daily life strategies that advance global flourishing. He was always excited about such ideas, leading him to get a PhD in the history of science, researching the intersection of psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and behavioral economics. Gleb currently holds a tenure-track professorship at The Ohio State University and is a member of the Decision Sciences Collaborative there. He published dozens of peer-reviewed essays in academic venues in the US, UK, France, Germany, Russia, and elsewhere, as well as numerous popular articles, and serves on a number of boards, for instance as the Science Advisor on the Planet Purpose Advisory Board.

Agnes loves sharing the exciting world of evidence-based tools for working around the emotions and thoughts that may keep us from reaching our goals. As she searched for a resource that offers accessible and easy-to-use strategies based on research in cognitive science and behavioral economics, she discovered that much of this incredibly helpful information was scattered across various books and websites, many of them not accessible to the average person. Agnes and her husband, Gleb Tsipursky, decided to create that resource and launched Intentional Insights in 2014. Agnes holds an MBA in Nonprofit Management from Brandeis University and has more than 10 years of experience in the nonprofit sector, including operations, fundraising, grantmaking, strategic planning, and social enterprise. Agnes served as Vice President of the Humanist Community of Central Ohio from 2013 to 2014.

Cerina began using a logic-based approach to life during her early teens, long before she knew the term “rationality” existed or the many forms it could take. During her early adulthood, she and a group of like-minded friends joined together to create a discussion area where they could brainstorm alternative, rational solutions to everyday problems. When she discovered that a non-profit had been created for that express purpose (Intentional Insights) in late 2014, she began contributing in the form of graphics, and has since joined the leadership team in hopes of promoting a more rational worldview.
