Andrew has been building, fixing, and maintaining websites since 1998. He combines his passions for food and technology by helping professional food bloggers and entrepreneurs who would rather be building their businesses instead of monkeying with their websites.

Heather Lounsbury

Director of Support

Heather is a blogger turned WordPress developer and designer. While working as a Medical Laboratory Scientist, she started blogging. But after she had trouble finding a blogging theme that she really liked, she decided to build her own…and fell in love with designing and coding for WordPress.

She resides in beautiful Missoula, Montana, with her husband, her two energetic kids, their dog, a very snuggly Cocker Spaniel named Maple, and crazy-cute cat, Max.
