    Shirer Burkett

    Head of Creative Services; Specializing in Branding & Website Design

    About Shirer Burkett

    With a background in theater arts, experience in film production, event planning and production, a flair for fashion (however eclectic), and a high threshold for BS (having worked in the service industry), Shirer Burkett is a 15 year veteran in advertising and marketing. She has traveled extensively and recently returned to the USA after a 9 year stint in London, England where she worked as a Creative Consultant in advertising, and as the Creative Director to the largest commercial radio group in the UK.  A conceptual genius (who’s writing this?) with a sharp and creative mind, Shirer lived and worked in New York City for 10 years prior – where she met some amazing people, had some awesome experiences, and eventually settled into a semi-respectable media centric career path.  Holistic brand engagement experiences, creative idea generation, considered design and individually crafted innovative solutions are what she’s about. She’d like to claim this focus has just come naturally (unfortunately this can be attributed to long hours of hard work, practical application, and of course research).

    Dennis Clayton

    Head of Development Services; Specializing in Web Development & Hosting

    About Dennis Clayton

    IT Consultant with 20+ years of experience in IT and “new media” design. Overall, I have been involved in computers for approximately 32 years. When I was 7 years old, I had my first “all nighter” programming in BASIC on a monochrome TRS-80. Moved into PASCAL in school, but as the early web evolved HTML and web design became my focus, feeling that it would be “big”. It was.

    After high school, I spent ~2 years helping start an Internet company in Ohio called SISCOM. It is still around today. After that, I jumped into gov’t work doing PC software/hardware installation and computer programming moving into more advanced Graphics/Web Design and application/database development for many clients in the public, private and government sectors. Currently provide web/email hosting, website design, development, implementation, security and backups for numerous businesses and individuals around the country.

    Specialties: Intelligent full life cycle planning, server administration, web/database design, airbrushing/re-touching/photo restoration with a knack for quickly figuring out terribly complex things in tough situations, occasionally dream about and solve coding problems while sleeping. 🙂
