You nailed it, Lynne! Thank you so very much! You’re the bomb!
Cathy Purple Cherry, AIA, LEED AP, Purple Cherry Architects

Lynne is a voracious reader and life-long learner who holds a master’s degree in computer science from Stanford University and thinks technology is fun. She says her brain is most alive when she’s learning new things and solving problems. She spends a lot of her time keeping up with the ever-changing world of web design/development. Lynne was drawn to web development because she loves the mix of technology and art – it’s the perfect outlet for what people call her full-court brain.

Engaging Frank to lead our marketing efforts was a great decision.
Eric Welty, President, Noovis

Frank’s degree is in marketing and his greatest strength is writing. Our clients love him. He’s excellent on the phone and in front of a white board. Before launching Buzzquake, he was the chief marketing officer for a federal contractor and a freelance journalist. When the freelance industry dried up, he reinvented himself as a web content author. Today he helps our customers win the SEO game. He also helps them communicate with their stakeholders via multiple channels. He has a reputation for writing compelling press releases that tend to get noticed by even the most skeptical editors. One was recently picked up by CNN Money.
