Brett MeyerPartner & Founder
Brett has a wide breadth of software engineering and management experience in multiple industries, including roles at Twilio, Disney, Red Hat, Raytheon, NBC Universal, and regional companies. He also enjoys public speaking on technical topics at both local and national conferences, as well as staying active in open source software communities.
His wife, Jenel, is an amazing and passionate ER/Trauma RN. She’s so much cooler than him. However, she did choose to marry Brett, which calls her standards into question…so there’s that.
Brett and Jenel play zone defense against a formidable yet adorable crew. The small humans are nice enough to let their parents feel like winners once in a while, but that’s all part of the game. (It’s also handy living with an ER nurse. Because reasons.)
Michael has always had a passion for serving others, volunteering, and helping organizations grow. In every position he has held, he has had a heart of a teacher to better the people and companies he served. Michael’s education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Marketing and a Master’s Degree in Digital Media Communications. His past career experience has been working in the non-profit sector, higher education, and growing small businesses.
Michael enjoys being a husband to his wife, Abby, and a dad to their 3 young boys. He also nails the dance to Billie Jean. Ask us and we’ll send you a video.
Landon BaerSenior Software Engineer
After Landon graduated from Huntington University, we were lucky enough to have him start with us as a summer intern. He absolutely knocked it out of the park and we’re grateful that he has already grown into a linchpin within our software engineering efforts! Landon is a rare breed, able to effectively juggle a wide variety of projects.
He’s a fan of Ohio sports teams, but we do our best to look past that. But it’s really, really tough. When not being absurdly productive, Landon plays soccer, dominates recreational volleyball, and travels with his wife (Kenzie, a travel nurse) and three-legged puppy (Luna).
Zelle CalinaSenior Consultant, Systems Development
Zelle’s education is based in medical research. She was sure she would be a doctor, but while others were preparing for residency, she spent all her time staffing fundraisers, contributing to community projects, and volunteering whenever and wherever she could. Following grad school, Zelle realized her spirit was only kindling as a medical student, but on fire when she helped raise over $200,000 for St. Jude’s. So she left medicine behind to continue serving others in a different way, supporting non-profits with her love of data science and unending desire to learn.
Outside of systems, Zelle enjoys playing video games, making art, and assisting wildlife conservation efforts.
