Ansley Fones
Lead Web & Brand Designer, Co-Developer

Ansley is a font geek and rolling stone who will shamelessly eat all the guacamole at your party. Despite building the Internet, she’s hopelessly behind on the latest memes. She likes red wine, particular pens, and socks that don’t pass her ankles. And lima beans are gross.

In 2009, Ansley graduated from Tufts University into the recession and found that her most useful skill was not anything she’d studied in school, but her knowledge of Photoshop, gained from a bootleg copy of the software a friend gave her in 8th grade. This led her to a job at a web design and development company in her hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, where she also learned to code.

Since then, she and her long term partner, Danny, have hopped and skipped from New York City to Seattle and back, then decided to be country mice and are now settling in the Hudson Valley of New York State.

When she’s not designing and building a beautiful website for you, she’s snuggling her two dogs, slaying bad guys in D&D, playing guitar, blowing off work to go to happy hour with Danny, or most likely sleeping because that’s approximately one third of her life.

Do you also hate lima beans? Let’s talk.

Matt Gowdy

Born and raised in northern New York, Matt spent the past 15 years in Montana and recently moved back with his loving wife, two daughters, and tiny menagerie of animals to begin homesteading. He now helps oversee two ponies, three cats, two dogs, and a small flock of sheep.

Matt has spent over half his life studying design, development, and technology and has a wealth of experience ranging from basic websites to WordPress themes and plugins, scripting in obscure languages, browser extensions, and Windows Gadgets.

After earning his Associates of Science degree in Computer Science and a wealth of experience in the technology field, he spent several years at various companies large and small honing his abilities and making cool stuff. For the past seven years, he has been using his skills to benefit clients more directly.

Matt is also offering services as the WP Mechanic!

Carly Crawford

Carly is a tax preparer (Enrolled Agent, to be exact), lifelong theatre person, and online business manager with a penchant for cheesy carbs, cross stitching, and books of all kinds. Carly lives in Memphis, where she loves the heat and humidity and basically lives on her screen porch.

Carly graduated from UNC Asheville in 2009 with a degree in Drama and Literature, and spent the last 10 years pretending to be small children onstage, most notably Peter Pan, Pinkalicious, and Junie B. Jones (all multiple times). She also earned a Master’s in Arts Administration from Savannah College of Art and Design, learning how to turn her make believe into a functioning business.

When she’s not responding to your emails, helping Ansley with whatever she can, or preparing and filing taxes for her clients, Carly is probably reading in the bathtub, playing board games with her partner, Nikki, or stubbing her toes on things because she’s inordinately clumsy. She likes lists in threes.
