Team


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

Creative Director

I'm a programmer and designer from the San Francisco Bay Area. My skills include HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, MySQL and custom Wordpress CMS coding and graphic design. I have agency experience and have also been managing projects since 2002. I enjoy collaborating with clients to produce world-class websites that exceed expectations. My clients include AT&T, PC World, Rockport publishing, SAS, Toshiba, Costco, Intel, Adobe and Sony.

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.

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.

Claire Khromer

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. You can view some of my latest projects here: http://clairekrohmer.com/

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.

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 keeipng myself updated with new technologies and trends.
