I grew up in a home where my father’s business was a regular topic of conversation — Dad was my hero and he inspired me to start this business.
Websites fascinate me. The written word is powerful, and the web is an amazing platform. While there are lots of gee-whiz bells-and-whistles you can include in a website, it really boils down to communicating a meaningful message clearly. This matters to me. I like to help people connect with their audience.
James came to us in 2014. He is in charge of pretty much everything. On a day-to-day basis he’s keeping up with scheduling, making sure maintenance gets done, and projects are on track. We’re a small shop, everyone has a lot going on, and someone usually wants something yesterday. James does a wonderful job of handling the daily craziness while keeping a smile on everyone’s face (and beer in the fridge). He’s our indefatigable encourager.
In 2016 we celebrated Chuck’s first 10 years with the business! Chuck is a man with strong character and strong opinions. I love him for both. He has a keen eye for detail; he can also step back and look at the big picture. He asks tough questions, and he expects you to do your homework (yes, we assign homework). He is also an excellent teacher. After a project gets started Chuck usually takes the reigns and oversees the project through the design phases.
In 2008 Andrew came on board to help Chuck and me with problems we didn’t know how to solve. Databases, for instance, were baffling. Since then, Andrew has overseen server maintenance, set up content delivery networks, programmed custom solutions (like Typewriter!), and solved problems we didn’t know we had — he seems to always be one step ahead of me. Thoughtful and tenderhearted, he is the man to talk to if you ever need a patient listener.
Stephen signed on in 2013. He was relatively new to web development, but he learned quickly. Just a few years later, Stephen is our lead developer. Chuck & Matt throw more than a few curve balls Stephen’s way, but he routinely manages to make it look easy. I think he’s at his most amazing when he is subduing poorly behaved browsers. Once design is complete Stephen assumes responsibility for the development phase. He is a man with a big heart and an easy smile.
Matt joined us from the West Coast in 2016. Matt is a solid designer and he has a knack for content. After a website is developed, Matt is responsible for crafting pages — one of the most important phases of a project! If you’re out in California, or up late at night (OK, until 8pm Eastern), call our West Coast phone number and say hello to Mr. Fitch!
New to the team in 2017, Kyle is the entrepreneurs’ entrepreneur. I’m pretty sure his motto is, “I can make it happen.” He’s got a head for business, click through rates, conversions, and anything else that will help you fill bunks. He’s a brilliant communicator who keeps things in perspective.
Our main office has been above a pub since 2008…if only they would install a tap up here! Looking out our second story window we have a sweeping view of the North Carolina mountains.
We’ve embraced remote work and everyone loves it. More time with family, more adventures with the kids, and yet we’re still super easy to get in touch with! James, Nicholai, and Kyle, are almost always around because it’s important to us that there’s a friendly voice available when you call. Chuck, Andrew, and Stephen are remote depending on the day. Matt is our man in Havana (oops, California). It’s a crazy modern world we live in, and that makes the little things so much more meaningful.
Hey, you read to the bottom of the page! You must feel like you practically know us by now — why not give us a call?!?
