Our Story



Meet Our Awesome People
 Jimmy Shepherd/Co-Founder, Resident Musician
Jimmy started this company with a couple of low limit credit cards and a big dream.  The first in his family to graduate from high school, Jimmy went on to earn a doctorate in music from the University of Texas.  He left teaching behind to move back to his home state of Kentucky to live the American dream!
Lauren Shepherd/Co-Founder, Resident Mathematician
Lauren has a big heart for making the world a better place.  After teaching middle school and high school math for 9 years, she made the leap into the tee biz full time.  Originally from Houston and a hardcore Longhorn fan, Lauren is the muscle behind Thread Science.
Arielle Richard/Product and Campaign Development, Resident Scientist 
Arielle brings her expertise as a scientist/mother/military wife/artist to the Thread Science team. She designs tees, contemplates science, potty trains her daughter, and builds fans of Thread Science on a regular basis.  Arielle is an all-around winner at life and at t-shirts!
Boston Shepherd/Animal Specialist, Resident Napper
Boston is an integral part of Thread Science.  He spends much of his 30 minutes of daily awake time meowing great t-shirt ideas.  While he is not the most photogenic, he makes up for it by being the company's mascot.
