Who We Are
In the World Wide Web, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: the users, who browse the web and consume its content, and the members of Web Services, who create and maintain that content. These are their stories.
Programming for the web since he was a wee lad, Tony has a great appreciation for efficiency, minimal design, and programmatic eloquence. Wherever there is time being wasted, he'll be there with a script. Whenever there is injustice done to a website being rendered in an obscure outdated browser, he'll be there. Wherever there is ajax in distress, never fear. Recent reports mention him wielding a large camera and microphone.
David is the fearless leader and VP of Marketing and Web Services. In addition to co-authoring the Professional WordPress book from Wrox publishing and being a Zend Certified Engineer, David is skilled in design, development, and loud typing. His years of experience enable him to sail the sea of project deadlines like a crafty pirate (even though he prefers ninjas) all while maintaining high morale among the crew.
While not pecking corn, or reading War and Peace, I stand up for all that is good in Web Standards. I encourage the other Web Services Team Members to write validating code, remember security, make beautiful designs and not to eat at KFC (they could have been distant cousins). I am also a card carrying member of the Snow Beaver Field Research Organization (SBFRO) and enjoy participating in their research expeditions on my days off. For the record, I am also the fastest typist in the department with my hunt and pecking.
As Manager of Marketing, Peter specializes in graphical bedazzlement and textual enchantment. When he isn't creating vector art with the greatest of ease he can be found roaming the halls of the internet searching out the next big thing to keep you ahead of the curve. Insert buzzwords here as necessary.
Sam, the former team intern, gone pro, is rearing to take your web presence to the next level. Web hosting? Email issue? Need a better driver for your graphics card? Shopping for something bigger than an iPhone but smaller than a full sized iPad? Coined "SUPERSAM" by satisfied clients, Sam will save the day!
As the senior (citizen) member of the web services team, Kurt is a jack-of-all-trades developer. Mix a bunch of WordPress with a little jQuery with a lot of CSS & HTML with some PHP and you have a well-rounded web dev dude. Give him a website problem and he'll find a solution. Just don't ask him for a solution to the loud typing in web services. Do ask him about his grilled chicken recipe, but not in front of the Web Standards Chicken.
One man, insistant upon doing the work of three men. Strong enough for a man, but PH balanced for a woman. Kristian is the man to talk to to get your ducks in a row with IRSC customizations!
Raised on a diet consisted of web based programming, technical knowledge, carbs, and excessive use of the oxford comma, Keegan indulges in the daily adventures of client website updates like a majestic wolf climbing a mountain in the bright moonlight. Add that to his experience in e-commerce, coding, WordPress, and other skillsets - you'll find Keegan to be a pretty swell guy to keep around.

The newest member to squeak their way into our humble little flock is Casey. Better than Nicholas Cages best movie, this guy is here to nurture any WordPress or programmatical error tossed his way. In the rare event that he's not working on a side project, he likes to spend time with his Golden Retreiver, Leyna. While he does occasionally get some sleep, it's probably in a chair while working through the middle of the night. Luckily, he's usually woken by the burn of his laptop on his upper thighs.
Susanna comes to us from a Human Resources background that has given her a passion for Customer Service. She loves projects, research, writing, and long walks on the beach.
