Since then she has worked in a variety of technical support positions, troubleshooting everything from satellite dishes to cell phones. When she's not on the job she's likely to be found running (no, she's probably not faster than you), playing video games or reading Marvel comics.

Paul received his first computer at the age of four and learned how to read by navigating DOS. Primarily self taught, Paul has an enduring love of technology and is always striving to learn more and be better. His unwillingness to settle for the status quo propelled him from customer care in 2008, to digital press operation in 2013, and onward to web development. When he isn’t working, Paul can be found woodcarving, writing, and spending time with his wife and son.
