Like any great team, ours is full of passionate people. Everyone brings their unique set of multi-disciplinary skills to help craft every project from the ground up. It's not hard to be the best at what you do, when you don't want to do ANYTHING ELSE!
John "Big Putt" Driscoll is the chief rainmaker, a dynamic speaker and scary predictor of technology futures yet to come. You haven't completed your trip to PhD without a visit to John's invisible office. Simply put, John is the best at what he does.
Director of User Experience,
Jason "The Hulk" Martinez is a monster at ui/ux with a blend of tech talents that make him an x factor at PhD. When he's not building The Matrix, you can probably find him in a pub drinking some new beer that nobody can pronounce.
Chief Financial Officer,
Cliff "The Chef" Coglietti has been a successful business owner for 25 years. He has been involved in countless ventures while also being an award winning culinary artist. He is protector of all things financial while allowing us to keep the creative juices going. He brings new meaning to "cooking the books".
Brittney "Harlem Shake" Harden not only tears up the dance floor with her hip hop training, she also has an incredible devotion to customer service. By day, Brittney uses her OCD to keep PhD moving forward. She loves hiking, golfing, and hanging with her dog Kona-Mona (but not all at the same time). Brittney's World is always a fun place to visit.
Sr. Product Manager,
Steve “The Duck” Colucci is the glue that holds everything together. With over 18 years in the development field and a Computer Science Degree from the University of Oregon, Steve naturally progressed from developer to technical lead to product manager. When he isn’t slaying in the workplace, Steve can be found on the disc golf course or spending time with his wife and 3-year old son as they dress up like super heroes (with capes of course).
Myranda "Coach" Cate is a wordsmith by day and a volleyball extraordinaire by night. When Myranda isn't using her writing degree skills to blog on Nerdy Talk, she spends her spare time shaping young volleyball champions. Coach love's meeting up with friends at Esther's Taco House always with a Dos Equis Amber in her hand.
David “D Ray” dives into the nitty gritty of UI/UX design with an open mind. His diverse background and encyclopedia-like knowledge about apps and startups allow him to keep up with the latest practices. Believe it or not, this nerdy Product Designer was in an indie rock band in LA before he dove into the world of app development.
Dexter, our devoted team dog, has proudly taken the role of greeting each person at the door with a big ol’ bear hug. He’s an avid ping-pong ball chaser and can tear up a piece of paper like it were his job – who needs a paper shredder when you have Dexter. His cheerful personality and amusingly fluffy figure will place a smile on your face. He’s SO fluffyyyy! The huggable and ever so jolly, Dexter loves all!
Sr. iOS Developer,
Steven “Cosimo the Panda” O’Toole, our very own debugging master, shows great passion in his work for PhD Labs. Steven has been developing Mac and Web apps long before he decided to switch over to iOS development. With an iOS Developer Nanodegree from Udacity and experience as an iOS Swift Mentor, it’s no secret he’s the man for the job. When Steven isn’t strapped in behind his screen, he enjoys spending time with family, playing the occasional video game and heaps of reading.
