Michele boasts an Advertising degree from LSU with concentrations in graphic design and business. She spent the first part of her career serving as art director and then design manager at a couple of agencies in New Orleans. Prior to founding Subatomic, her most recent stint came at Covalent Logic, where she was a senior web developer and then the web development manager.
Somewhere in between all of those numerous lines of code, Michele has found the time to pick up a few strays, raise some chickens and explore the world of Essential Oils. She also runs in her spare time. In fact, a couple of years back Michele told her three previous hip surgeries where to go and ran a marathon. Feet. Pavement. 26.2 miles. If you didn’t like her already, there are 26.2 more reasons.

Bess keeps the rest of us on task while also running our South Carolina office. After spending a few years in Baton Rouge—by way of… Newfoundland?—she decided to return home to Columbia, S.C. to be closer to family and start one of her own.
Bess is the only one of us that can say she’s been a scientist, lab coat and all! Specifically, she was an associate packaging scientist for Nestlé in St. Louis. This was pre-Canada. Post-Canada, she spent her first couple of years in Baton Rouge working at Covalent Logic as a project manager, then production manager and finally as director of projects.
Bess can do things with Excel that will scare you. She boasts an undergrad degree in Packaging Science from Clemson University and an MBA from the Memorial University of Newfoundland. She’s also a budding punster, loves all things process, enjoys walking her dog Bogey and may one day open her own bakery.
Founder. Word Wrangler.
Born and raised on rock n’ roll and comic books (neither are actually true), Brett continues to walk the circular path of life while also clinging to his youth as much as possible. At least that’s how he explains his Chuck Taylors and smattering of toys on his desk.
Looking back, Brett has done some interesting stuff. He has a Minor in Astronomy from LSU (his major was Journalism, but we’re going for star power here). Brett’s also been paid by actual people to write about sports, review movies, direct traffic, produce web things and wear an inflatable taco suit. All true.
When not working, Brett likes to consume fiction, written and televised. He has been occasionally known to read himself to sleep (every night). He enjoys running, coffee, podcasts, yoga, superheroes, science fiction, parentheses and puns. He continues to pursue a professional kickball career despite being in his 40s. We don’t have the heart to tell him…
