Lucas Balzer

Lucas has been making the computing world more efficient since he tried to install custom modifications on his Texas Instruments calculator in high school. He is currently focused on helping small businesses establish a competitive brand identity and marketing voice. With solid PHP, JavaScript, and jQuery skills, Lucas is always finding new WordPress plugins and modifications to make his clients’ webpages increasingly polished and effective. A Google Apps and DNS zone genie, we love seeing what we can throw his way.

Originally a native Californian, Lucas has been in Oregon long enough for moss to grow between his toes. We consider him a Portlander because of his collection of mostly-working bikes.

He has produced award-winning designs for projects both large and small, both nationally recognized and locally rooted. Though his strengths range from art direction to web development, design is where he thrives.

Rob began his career in North Carolina, and spent time in San Francisco, California as well. He now collaborates with us from Virginia where he is always beating us to the sunrise.
