Sean Schertell

Technical Director

I’ve been involved in web development and system administration since 1998. As an audio engineer in New York City, I began studying web design and coding as a side hobby. Since then, I’ve worked on projects for clients including MTV, Capitol Records, The U.S. Dept. of Treasury, and Dell Computers.

Having been involved in all phases of web development from command line web server administration to user interface design, I like to think I have the wide-angle perspective necessary for viewing an entire project top-down and building teams around a predetermined goal.

Jesse Hall

Technical Director

I fell in love with computers at age 16 - programming Dungeons and Dragons scenarios in Q-BASIC for Mac and recreating the Sgt. Pepper's album cover in Mac Paint. Fast forward to 2002, while still in college, I was the technical director and graphic designer of several Rockport published computer graphics and web design books.

In years that followed, I worked as a junior/senior programmer, as well as a graphic designer (winning a national award for for web design). I've deployed and managed large scale projects for companies such as AT&T, PC World, SAS, Toshiba, Costco, Intel, Adobe, and Sony. On the weekends, I play in art-punk bands and enjoy boat rides with my wife and two kids.

Erin Kodama

Project Manager

I've been a web developer and project manager for the past 5 years, managing projects from the initial stages of wireframing and design to implementation and go-live. I like to think of myself as a partner when working with clients, helping them flush out ideas, coming up with solutions, and keeping the project pushing forward.

I'm also knowledgeable in HTML, CSS, jQuery, Javascript, and have experience with PHP and MySQL. Having front end development knowledge has helped me to effectively communicate with our development team and leverage their talents and skillsets to meet our goals.

Claire Krohmer

Graphic Designer

After graduating from U.C. Davis with a B.A. in Graphic Design, I quickly got my feet wet working at a design firm for several years. After steadily working and teaching introductory graphic design part time at the local community college, I soon caught the travel bug, and spent a few months roaming around Europe, gathering inspiration and a renewed sense of passion for art and design (and craft beers, but that's another story).

I decided to take it to the next level, build up my own clientele, and explore the world of freelance graphic and web design, where I have been working for the past several years.

Noel Firth

Senior Engineer

Shortly after my father brought home a Tandy 1000, I started dabbling in DOS batch files and was soon playing around with Basic, Pascal, C++ and a few other languages. By the late 90's I had a difficult time choosing between a career in music or computers, but ultimately chose the "safe" route and headed to college majoring in Computer Science and Mathematics. After college, I spent a few years in the US Air Force as a Communications & Computer Systems Operator (3C0X1) and somewhere in there, I started playing with HTML. Since then, I've honed my skills in front-end development and now specialize in WordPress/PHP development, and more recently, Meteor JS.

Evgeny Petukhov

Senior Engineer

I'm one of the master programmers behind the scenes. I'm responsible for full-stack development from the depths of automated Linux-based web server deployments to lovingly handcrafted HTML/CSS code. My job is to put it all together. I was born in Arkhangelsk, a small town to the north of Russia and I've worked for a huge number of Russian and international clients as a freelancer since high school (I still remember MS Frontpage and the HTML 3.2 era).

A few years after graduating from the local university, I moved to Bangkok, Thailand. Now I can't live/code without traveling, skyscraper views and spicy Thai food.

A.J. Moroney

Senior Engineer

I've been writing code in one form or another for almost 15 years, and I have a passion for creativity. During and after college I dabbled in a few different fields, including music production, graphic arts, philosophy and writing. I eventually settled on coding, and while I've experimented with at least a dozen different programming languages, I found something unique in programming for the web that really grabbed my focus. While a lot of computing prioritizes function over form, most web projects are geared towards creating a user experience. I really enjoy uniting visual arts with intuitive programming to make even mundane tasks like registering for a mailing list genuinely entertaining.

Since I began coding professionally I've always focused on being the "whole solution," and I've garnered experience in everything from server-side logic and database interaction to UI design and development. My favorite projects are the ones where I get to work on the cutting edge, and push technology beyond what it was designed to do. I love finding creative solutions to impossible problems and doing things that have never been done before.

Marko Tasic

Senior Engineer

I'm a highly experienced software developer. My areas of interest range from low-level to very high-level programming. More recently, I've become interested in design, implementation, and optimization of scalable web applications, mobile applications, and game development. I've always approached any problem as innovation is required and am especially interested in binding web and mobile technologies.

Michael Rosenthal

Senior Engineer

I grew up in Austin, Texas, where I frequented 24 hour coffee shops to study computer science and program -- punctuated by games of four-handed chess. Now I live life on the move, pushing code from Istanbul to Krakow. I've programmed at all levels of the software stack, doing everything from database optimization to responsive web development. I now focus this understanding intently on building both beautiful websites and beautiful code bases.

Jared Mitchell

Senior Engineer

Hi, I'm Jared. When I am not cycle touring, running, or rock climbing you will find me in front of my computer working on the latest project. My love for the outdoors is only trumped by my love for everything PHP. I built my first website in 1997, and after graduating with a BSc in Computer Science from Otago University I worked customizing e-commerce sites before leaving the comforts of New Zealand for Asia. These days you will find me in Chiang Mai, Thailand, utilizing my full stack developer skills to build customized WordPress sites. Other skills include website migration, Apache server management, and website optimization.

Chase Bell

Senior Engineer

Hi, I’m Chase. I grew up in Colorado and currently reside in Las Vegas. I got my start in web development working for a small company as a designer. While there I found my passion for bringing a great design to life and began to focus on development. Over the years I have had the opportunity to work on everything from linux servers to html.

Now as a full stack developer with a focus on front end development, I work on projects for small local companies up to large corporations and enjoy bringing a beautiful user experience to each one of them. When not in front of a screen, I enjoy good food and spending time with my family.

Cody Beardsley

Senior Engineer

I am a multi-talented individual and have experience in UI design, web development, professional game design, systems administration, project management, quality-assurance and crazy-intense debugging. I have a passion for perfection in my work and it shows in the clean and concise code I author. When there's a deadline and code quality can't be sacrificed, I'm your guy. Outside of programming, I dabble in music production, space technology and motorcycles and often create side projects involving those interests.

Ben Bogard

Senior Engineer

As a lover of computers since entering DOS commands to play Battle Chess at the age of 7, I cut my teeth programming Q-Basic animations in High School. Now I am a full stack developer in Portland, Oregon, and pride myself on utilizing CSS3, HTML5, and jQuery to create fun and interactive experiences through a CMS or otherwise. Naturally, this has led to my current dabbling in browser-based Virtual Reality applications and 360 degree websites.

Konstantin Antipov

Systems Operations Specialist

Hi, I'm Konstantin. My first computer was Intel 8086 based. Since then computers have been a great part of my life and at some point they became my profession. Getting a degree in information technology at St. Petersburg Polytechnic University has structured my knowledge and improved my competence. I am currently involved in the administration of computer systems and cloud-based applications keeping myself updated with new technologies and trends.
