– Who We are –
We are a team of web designers, content creators, and site builders that love what we do. We “geek out” on the latest tools and techniques that we use to do our work. Our passion is to do great work… on time and on budget. We believe that our work should be fun and professionally rewarding. Time to meet the team…
I have been working with computers, networks, and productivity software since the IBM PC came out in 1981, so I have just about seen it all (both good and bad). I own and operate IT-Brad.com.
My technology skill set spans much of the Windows/Intel hardware & software space, but my primary interest now is assisting small business with reducing the major headaches of owning and maintaining web sites. Design, building, security, and maintenance are the major areas of online solutions that we focus on at IT-Brad, Inc. I get up every day looking for ways to perform more efficiently and effectively… and it is to those businesses that strive for those same goals, that we offer our time and talents.
I live northeast of Atlanta and have called Georgia home for most of the last 30 years. I have a lovely wife who has put up with me for almost 40 years and some kids to keep me challenged… Life is good…
As team leader, I am proud to introduce the other members of IT-Brad, Inc. that provide a well rounded suite of solutions for our customers…
Laura is our social media guru. She loves exploring the intricacies of the ever changing Social Media world. If you have ever tried to navigate the “ins and outs” of the various social media platforms, you know how difficult it can be. It takes a special person to have the patience and intellect necessary to do it successfully.
Laura came to the online world way back when hand coded HTML web sites were dominant. She found the coding aspect intriguing and taught herself how to build web sites one line at a time. She built several web sites by this method. This interest created an amazing foundation for the social media work she does today.
She lives in northeast Georgia and loves the quieter country life. She has developed an interest in many styles of dancing, but especially enjoys the Contra dance style. She is accomplished in some “old fashioned” skills as well… spinning yarn, knitting, and crocheting. These skills extend to teaching others how to knit and crochet. She loves hiking and occasionally will do some rock climbing in the Smoky Mountains.
Thomas is our video expert at IT-Brad. Thomas got his start in video during high school, when his love for Star Wars inspired him to try my hand at making a short film. He enjoyed the experience so much that there was no looking back. He started creating videos professionally back in 2008, doing primarily event recording and editing. Weddings and dance recitals were a specialty back then. He’s moved on from that early focus to now specializing in corporate and music videos, while still squeezing in an occasional short film.
He can work with our customers to create video from the conceptual phase all the way to the final product. This includes story-boarding, set creation, lighting, recording with multiple camera angles, production editing, and online presentation. He is expert in YouTube videos, product commercials, how-to videos, and personal interviews.
He resides in Athens, GA and loves to travel. He is a graduate of Thomas Edison State College where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree as a Communication major in less than 2 years. He values work that makes the world a better place, acquiring new skill sets, and living life to the fullest. For Thomas… adventure is out there!
Benjamin is a young man with an eye for great design. His abilities in this area serve our customers well when they are looking for a new web site or interested in refreshing the look of their existing web site. After graduating high school he found a passion in web and graphics design. He has a voracious appetite for learning and the work ethic of someone twice his age.
He is a writer of fiction and has already written several 200+ page novels. The genres include historical and science fiction. Benjamin is an accomplished pianist and has done some occasional composing and arranging. For relaxation, he is an avid Halo on-line gamer. Benjamin is talented in many areas and we are proud to have him on our team.
