Meet the Team

We here at Stim Factory, we work hard to bring you the content, products, and services you need. Here is an introduction to the team behind the scenes. 


Joie Thompson,


Joie has always been controversial.  However, that doesn't mean that he doesn't care.  When he created this organization, it was because the special needs community needed more robust adult services, along with accessible careers that pay a living wage.

Hey everyone! I’m Merissa, and I’m the shiest people person you’ll ever meet. No, seriously. Anyway, when I’m not wrangling people to do the right thing - a regular Jiminy Cricket - I’m playing games and spending way too much time writing. I’m hoping to bring a strong basis of support and understanding to our endeavors, while making sure we’re respecting everyone. I’m a member of the LGBT community, and was denied an ADHD diagnosis as a kid because of my grades, so I know what it’s like to not have the support you need and have to struggle to still meet the expectations of those around you. I want to see as many people flourish as possible, and hope that we can give people the tools they need to move forward in their lives.
