About Critique^It and the Presenters
Ashley Bradford has worked over the last decade in web-based informatics and data systems in forensic science and national defense.  He was inspired to create Critique^It while teaching as adjunct faculty.  Ashley has an undergraduate degree from Bowling Green University and a graduate degree from Yale.

Critique^It is the brainchild of Alexandra Fleur, a visionary and inventive thinker. Fleur enjoys capturing unseen possibilities and finds relevant, new connections between people, ideas and systems. She envisioned robust rich-media peer review as a student working on her first middle-grade fiction novel.

In building the company, CritiqueIt Inc., Fleur and Bradford set out to use their expertise to provide technologies that bring an organic, human context to peer-to-peer communication, collaboration and learning.
