And that’s probably why you’re here.

Peter graduated from University of Delaware in 2010 with a BA in Economics, and before founding Counting Sheep, he has since worked for a variety of companies in digital marketing roles. Peter’s passion for sleep started in his mid-20s when he started experiencing insomnia. While doing research on his own, and trying to understand his sleep issues, Peter discovered that many websites about sleep offer contradictory advice and that there was extreme bias from manufacturers. As Peter couldn’t find a decent resource for sleep health, mattresses and sleep products, he decided to create one. At that moment, Counting Sheep was born.



Derek has been an online entrepreneur for over 10 years. Early in his career, his efforts were dedicated to navigating businesses and individuals through the perils of the online world. However, in 2011 Derek’s interest in sleep research and health aspects of sleep have grown, and the idea of Counting Sheep was formed. Derek also worked with many mattress manufacturers where he helped in designing and constructing mattresses for online sales. Over time, he also became a Certified Sleep Science Coach, and was able to understand the needs of a consumer from both sides. Derek graduated from the University of Iowa with an MA in Communication studies.
