Who Are We? check us out below!

Duff and John met in high school and stayed in touch throughout college. In their four years of undergrad, they have collectively traveled over 100,000 miles and have studied abroad three times. This has given them a strong understanding of the market and problem they’re trying to solve, both from a consumer and supplier’s point of view. It also helps in customer acquisition, putting them in a unique position to solve these problems.

Now as recent college graduates they have maintained strong ties to their respective universities and study abroad offices. They are trying to bridge the gap between the students’ travel experiences and their university’s duty of care needs.

The Team

Duff Archie

Hey there! I’m Duff, and I graduated from St. Lawrence University in 2018 with a degree in Economics and Business in the Liberal Arts, and a minor in European Studies. I lived and studied abroad twice in college, first in London and then in Copenhagen. I have traveled over 60,000 miles while in undergrad, and my favorite place I’ve traveled is Iceland. I'm excited to launch OffWeGo, and help make safety a forethought for student travel.

John Eddins

Hey! I'm John, and I graduated from Colgate University in 2018 with a degree in Economics.  I’m the co-founder and CEO of OffWeGo. Having previously studied abroad in Australia, I experienced what it was like to move to a new continent and not know anyone there and trying to plan a trip with limited knowledge and a limited group of friends.  I look forward to launching OffWeGo to make traveling abroad more safe and efficient. My favorite place I’ve traveled is Thailand.

Consulting CTO, Offwego

CEO, ThinkNimble


Hi, I’m Neil, the CEO of ThinkNimble, a development agency that works with startups and social change. Previously I founded and sold Aspire, an employee engagement software, and worked at EverFi, managing product for video games related to critical skills education. I’m a huge fan of travel — my wife and I try to leave the country once every 3 months. I wish I would have gone abroad when I was in college, so OffWeGo is my way of making that happen now!
