Stuff you dont need to know:

10 years as vet tech which turned me into a dog nut. I own an 8 Year old Boxer named Denver and a 1 year old Scottish Terrier named Rookie.

I have a soon to be 16 year old son who I am crazy about and I am married to the "crossfitting comic book nerd" on here.

Mike Younker

Need to know:

What began as a way to pass the time on a tour bus, programming became a lifelong obsession. While technologies have come and gone, development never stops. Vast arrays of past projects include but not limited to: dynamic web applications, interactive elearning training simulations, and customized Electronic Medical/Health Record implementations.

Stuff you dont need to know:

Been in an Oscar winning movie, showcased on MTV and won several pizza eating competitions (one of these is false - you decide which).

Lee Alder

Need to know:

I started programming in High School. It was a requirement for a Physics Study Path. After finishing all the required programs in the first 6 weeks my teacher said I should pursue programming as a job, I answered 'It's fun but not to make a living at'.  So I have been a programmer for 20+ years now. I like to call myself 
an 'Interface Specialist, I interface people to their data."

Stuff you dont need to know:

Family and Faith. I am also an avid Ham radio operator and member of ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Services).

Micheal Russell

Need to know:
Inspired by comics and Sesame Street, I began drawing at age 8 and never stopped. After 13+ years in school fundraising graphics, tee shirt development and video production, I still enjoy creating visual interest and drama. Beyond being visually strong, it is critical the branding, message and functionality work in harmony. The creative process is just that, a process of uniting idea, input, feedback and purpose.

Stuff you don’t need to know:
A nerd of solitude, lover of nature walks, sunsets, deep tissue massages and silence. Music with no words lets my mind create without being restricted or corrupted by words.
