Brendan Berkley
Front End Web Developer Read bio

Brendan's passion for Web design was sparked by a summer class that yielded a Star Wars fan page. Over time, he has traded animated "E-mail me" GIFs, background MIDIs, and (reluctantly) <marquee> tags for CSS preprocessors and responsive Web design, and along the way he went to college to study graphic design.

As a result, he loves the open Web, typography, and identity design, and dabbles in the marketing side of things as well. If you'd like to get to know his work better, visit his website or his Twitter account.

Brendan resides just outside of Pittsburgh and thinks that his sports teams are superior to yours.

Emily Jensen
Front End Web Developer Read bio

Emily's interest in web development started when she was the marketing manager and graphic designer for a nonprofit organization. While she was there, she participated in a redesign of the company website and realized she wanted to learn to code. 

Emily brings her background in marketing and graphic design to her love of using technology to make processes more efficient and user-friendly. Notably, she was part of a team that made a scheduling app for a gaming conference and also helped to create a customer portal for a pop up childcare company.

When she's not coding, Emily knits all kinds of things, such as hats for rabbits and stuffed animals for her friends and family.
