Goodthoughts Team

Goodthoughts is a labor of love kept alive and thriving by a small group of people that believe in its purpose: help people change their habitual thought patterns to make things a little kinder and calmer out there. A mighty goal for a humble little app, but we're hopeful! And when we're feeling a little less than hopeful, well, there's a goodthought for that!

Sarah Davis
Founder + Art Director

I grew up to be an art director and have been exploring creative communication for 30+ years. My lifelong curiosity of trying to untangle the ways humans connect has served me professionally and now, has brought me to Goodthoughts. It has become an exploration of the struggle between aspirations and behaviors, an expression of the longing to feel closer to others, the satisfaction of making something and the joy that sharing brings. I create them when I'm full of motivation and when I can't get out of bed. Goodthoughts is a gift and a passion—thank you world, for giving me this little fire and for the dear people that keep the Goodthoughts positivity going. 

in this moment, I'm ok

Germaine Gioia
Founder + Visionary

I entered the video game industry by happenstance in the ‘90s and have enjoyed being a part of  the industry's continuous evolution ever since.  My focus has been in licensing – identifying top lifestyle brands and packaging them with the latest interactive technologies, across a variety of consumer product categories. Sarah and I originally met in college, but in one of life’s perfect coincidences, we reconnected over a shared vision that became Goodthoughts – a beautifully designed mobile app, connected to merchandise, to create one elegant platform designed to motivate and bring joy.  I’m grateful to see Goodthoughts so well suited to these unusual times, and to this devoted team who have brought it to life.
