Michelle (aka Miki) is a Jackie of all trades. Though she specializes as a designer, she's been known to knock down some pretty nifty, object oriented, JS applications ~ Mozify anyone? When she's not geeking out on the computer, you can find Miki at the volleyball court, playing golf, or cracking the whip with her two little, wild and crazy youngsters.
John is "The Man" behind the scenes at Email on Acid who makes sure everything is running smoothly. He loves technology, from programming to tinkering with mobile devices to reading Wired Magazine.

Tonniel (aka Sanka, and yes, that is a Cool Runnings reference) is always looking for a problem to solve, like how to finally beat his colleagues in Nerf 'HORSE'. A graduate of Texas A&M, Tonniel relishes the day he can teach his sons calculus. His hobbies include poker, coding (sad, he knows), fishing and exploring new places with his family.
Geoff's role is half writer, half email builder/fixer and half customer support (yes, he knows that adds up to 1 1/2 people). A graduate of UC Santa Cruz, he polished his writing skills working for newspapers and magazines and got a certificate in web development before joining our team to live his dream. When he's not learning about CSS, Geoff enjoys exploring the Denver restaurant scene or hiking in the foothills.
When he's not running around in the mountains or building mods for video games, Jordan is keeping up with the very cutting edge of web development and programming.

Despite his prowess with a computer, a Nerf 'HORSE' win is likely not to become part of his list of achievements in the near future. Favorite quote: There's no place like 127.0.0.1.

Tom has been working with computers for as long as he can remember, from making chatbots in VB to open-source video games. Failing to make the distinction between programming languages and real languages, he got a degree in linguistics and has been working on bridging the gap between human and machine since. The rest of his free time is spent writing music, learning languages (both kinds) and trying to use the things he's learned.
Brian claims to have spent all of his free time on computers since he was a child. When he isn’t “wasting his life” playing games, he’s making sure things are working as they should in the office.

If he isn’t fighting the good fight on the Internet, Brian can be found hiking and camping outdoors, enjoying a local craft beer or basking in the distinctive Colorado culture.
When Zack isn't crunching numbers for Email on Acid or providing marketing strategy consulting for Ecom startups, you'll find him appreciating the fact he lives in Denver.
