Meet the Team
Although Chris will admit to a distinctly geeky side, his passion for software comes not only from a fondness for code, but much more from what computers and software can do for people.
Louise was previously Subtitling and Media Coordinator for some household names in broadcasting, so brings the kind of experience and organisational skills that can only be gained from managing resources for live-subtitled events!

Design and User Experience
Courtney's broad range of skills and passion for self-development make her a creative shapeshifter, as much at home with 3D modelling as with user experience and interface design, branding and identity development.
Design and User Experience
Grace's love of art, media and film made visual communication her natural choice of profession, and she had always wanted to be intellectual before discovering what it means to be creatively smart. She's also quite funny!
Alena is a super-cool all-rounder, unfazed by technical challenges in the front end or back end of development projects. Modest and understated, Alena is always as ready to share knowledge and experience as she is to learn new things.
Design and User Experience
Shelley has a passion for understanding and improving the way people interact with our software; that and knitting. If she could knit a user interface, then she would have found her Nirvana!
