Our Team

You believe in your mission. We do, too.

The latin word 'vocare' -- to call -- is at the root of our common word 'vocation'. Today the word often means simply a job, but that was not the original sense. A job is a vocation only if someone else calls you to do it and you do it for them rather than for yourself. And so our work can be a calling only if it is reimagined as a mission of service to something beyond merely our own interests.

Timothy Keller, Every Good Endeavor

We love that quote from Timothy Keller.

We firmly believe that we've been called to be behind-the-scenes, providing a "mission of service". We see ourselves as your partners, in the trenches for the long-haul.

Your Partners

Brett Meyer

Brett has a wide breadth of software engineering and management experience in multiple industries, including roles at Twilio, Disney, Red Hat, Raytheon, NBC Universal, and regional companies. He also enjoys public speaking on technical topics at both local and national conferences, as well as staying active in open source software communities.

His wife, Jenel, is an amazing and passionate ER/Trauma RN. She's so much cooler than him. However, she did choose to marry Brett, which calls her standards into question...so there's that.

Brett and Jenel play zone defense against a formidable yet adorable crew. The small humans are nice enough to let their parents feel like winners once in a while, but that's all part of the game. (It's also handy living with an ER nurse. Because reasons.)

Brian Rowe
Lead Consultant & Strategist

Brian brings over two decades of development and IT experience in a variety of settings, from advertising agencies to corporate enterprise. He most recently operated his own consulting company where he focused on his passion of digital accessibility.

Brian is the very embodiment of the phrase "jack of all trades". First starting as an engineer, he has since become a vital partner. As a consultant, Brian directly serves nonprofit leaders. As a strategist, he's also responsible for large-scale projects and some of our products.

Other than focusing on making digital world usable by everyone, Brian can often be found camping with his wife, Stephanie, and two daughters. And slowly smoking meat. As God intended.

Landon Baer
Senior Software Engineer

After Landon graduated from Huntington University, we were lucky enough to have him start with us as a summer intern. He absolutely knocked it out of the park and we're grateful that he has already grown into a linchpin within our software engineering efforts! Landon is a rare breed, able to effectively juggle a wide variety of projects.

He's a fan of Ohio sports teams, but we do our best to look past that. But it's really, really tough. When not being absurdly productive, Landon plays soccer (he was a big deal at HU), dominates recreational volleyball, and is now planning a wedding with his fiance, Kenzie.

Michael Hansen
Director of Business Development

Michael has always had a passion for serving others, volunteering, and helping organizations grow. In every position he has held, he has had a heart of a teacher to better the people and companies he served. Michael's education includes a Bachelor's Degree in Business Marketing and a Master's Degree in Digital Media Communications. His past career experience has been working in the non-profit sector, higher education, and growing small businesses.

Michael enjoys being a husband to his wife, Abby, and a dad to their 3 young boys. He also nails the dance to Billie Jean. Ask us and we'll send you a video.

The Specialists

We're blessed to have an assisting team of engineers, designers, and get-it-doners. We highly value staying nimble with a mix of our core team, paired with motley crew of specialists. The loose composition enables us to execute with the right tools and right approaches, knowing those vary wildly between organizations and projects. This also has the benefit of allowing us to accelerate and decelerate development as needed.

Abbey – Designer/Writer: The left side of Abbey's brain is astonishing. She's a highly sought-after wedding photographer in the Chicagoland area, but moonlights for us as a web and graphic designer. She also has a background in writing and journalism. Most importantly, she has a huge heart for people and service.

Ivan – Software Engineer: Brett and Ivan have worked together for nearly a decade on both nonprofit and commercial development efforts. Ivan was trained at the the University of Edinburgh, started his career with Goldman Sachs, and is now a tech consultant based in Varna, Bulgaria. Ivan is, quite literally, a blessing and has been a tremendous partner over the years.

Matt – Designer: Matt designs...everything. He's worked with creative agencies, medical device companies, the agriculture industry, and a slew of small businesses. He helps us with our graphic, web, and app design -- and he's amazing at it. He spends the rest of his time traveling across the US with his family in a fifth-wheel. We want to be Matt when we grow up.

Zack – Software Engineer: We're glad that Ivan introduced us to Zack a while back. Also a consultant in Varna, Bulgaria, Zack quickly gets it done in a wide variety of settings. We sincerely appreciate his ability to dive in head first and get things right the first time.
