Cheryl Russell

Principal, Marketing Master, Designer, Cheerleader

If I’m not doing something creative – graphic design, ceramics, painting, photography – I’m probably riding my bike around town, perhaps headed to Mod to grab an iced mocha and hang out with friends. (Galveston / Houston)

Sales, Support, Event Photographer

I do everything. Well, I might not do everything but I make sure they do everything. I find people who need our work and let them talk to people who know stuff. I build, fix, and organize things. I make sure we have an endless supply of silly string. Oh, and I take pictures. (Houston / Galveston)

Jeff Baker

Director of Cat Herding (Programmer)

I write code. I fix code. I don’t smile nor act silly. I live with 2 grown children, 4 not-grown grandchildren, a wife, countless animals (I seriously lost count), and I’ve not seen my sanity in months. But I code good. (Dallas / Arlington)

Business Plans and Attorney Extraordinaire

Business plans are fun! No, really! I also like reviewing contracts, making sure everyone is respected, flying in small airplanes and falling off of snowmobiles. Ok, maybe not the falling off part. (Houston)

Jackie Venable

Proposal Queen

When I’m not writing proposals or managing marketing projects, I’m in my sewing room or chasing a bull dog off the couch. But more likely in the sewing room drinking mass quantities of coffee—and thinking. (Houston)
