Creative Director. Tinkerer. Doctor Who fan.

With a solid background in design, strategy, marketing and health care industry experience Mike brings an overarching, tyrannical, unbearable ego to the table that is completely unearned. Not a good person to have as an enemy, but also not a good person to have as a friend. He also writes copy.

Director of User Experience. Writer. Maker. Roller of dice.

David started building software for the web in 1996, when none of us had any real idea what might become of this interwebs thing. In the intervening 20ish years, he's designed UX for dozens of web applications, mobile apps, and OTT apps, and is a fierce advocate for elegance and ease of use in a complicated, multi-platform environment. He would also like to snuggle all your dogs and cats, if that's okay with you.
