Allen Moore

Allen Moore is a Senior Front-End Engineer at 10up, which is a fully distributed agency that makes a better web with finely crafted websites and tools for content creators. At 10up, Allen specializes in front-end performance, crafting amazing user experiences, and writing JavaScript that is lean and future-proof.

Prior to 10up, Allen worked as a web developer for the North Carolina State University College of Engineering, and spent over 10 years as a freelance and contract developer. When Allen is not obsessing about JavaScript purity, he loves to spend time with his wife and dog, and make loud booming sounds on bass guitar.

He lives in Raleigh, NC, tweets at @creativeallen, and occasionally blogs at allenmoore.me.

Ben Meredith

Ben is the Senior Support Technician at WordImpress, the makers of GiveWP. He’s also developed several plugins for WordPress, most notably Better Click To Tweet.

When not tinkering with code, you’ll likely find him playing guitar, riding bikes around Cary with his family, or playing disc golf.

Michael Torbert

As the developer of All in One SEO Pack, one of the most downloaded WordPress plugins, Michael loves his work as much as driving his Audi. With his free time, he tries to fulfill his childhood dream: travel the world and taste good food. Fall is Michael’s favorite season because college football is on and he’s a Hokie. Oh yeah, he studied Computer Science at NC State University, and wore Hokie gear the entire time!

Steve Mortiboy

A.K.A, the British guy, Steve has 25 years of management and service delivery experience. Steve started his career in the British Ministry of Defense working for the Army Department. For the past 15 years, he has managed large projects and enterprise clients with a drive to provide the best customer service. Steve made North Carolina his home after he met a lovely lady who is now his wife. Everyone in the office as well as neighboring offices love Steve more than usual on Fridays when he puts on his bartending hat and starts serving drinks at the Semper Fi Lounge!  Steve spends his spare time trying to become an expert grill chef and working on his southern drawl, y’all.

Lisa Boyd

Lisa is the founder of BoydPress Solutions where they create custom WordPress websites for storytellers (authors and speakers). Most days, Lisa’s dog and cat keep her company until her daughter gets home from school. They love to chat over Chick-fil-a nuggets and milkshakes until it’s time to tackle homework and build websites. You can find her on the weekends riding motorcycles or listening to her husband’s classic country music band perform locally.
