We have a deep understanding of design and technology and a constant curiosity that drives us to stay current with best-practices and evolving strategies.

We love and believe in what we do, and we love working with people who are similarly passionate about what they do.

Robert Dawson // Developer, Dev Ops Lead

Robert Dawson

Robert Dawson loves front-end technologies and his passion is to create a better Web for everyone. From designing interfaces to creating performant code, he loves that a single programming language, JavaScript, has taken over the Web, allowing developers to write code that seamlessly interoperates.

His career started wearing a variety of hats within a small team at a fledgling startup. Today, he focuses most of his time planning, writing, and refactoring quality code.

He received his Masters of Arts in Multimedia through the California State University-East Bay, where used the Python-based Natural Language Toolkit (NLTK), PHP, and MySQL to create a Web-based AI agent. Thanks to his highly flexible mind, we're able to provide inventive solutions for our clients' most complex problems.
