Carolyn

Carolyn

The One and Only

Hi everyone! I’m Derral’s one and only 🙂 We’ve been married 20+ years and what a fun ride it’s been! I spend my days keeping our five kids fed, happy and on time to all their sports, music, scouts, etc, activities. I have my degree in Accounting and was a pro on the 10 key back in the day. I love to bake goodies, work out at the gym and spend as much time as I can with family.

Ellie

The Chosen One

I’m Derral and Carolyn’s first born and favorite child. Here at the workplace I am referred to as the Chosen One. The trash needs to be taken out? I’m The Chosen One. The car needs to be washed? I’m The Chosen One. The bathroom needs to be cleaned? I’m The Chosen One. Maybe a more appropriate title would be The Office Maid.

Gideon

Gideon

Great Grumbling Graphical Goods Generator

Just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit- He took the midnight train going anywhere. That’s actually from a song by Journey, but it virtually sums up Gideon’s life. Actually born in Oregon, and raised in Idaho, Gideon may have only ever been on novelty trains at theme parks that actually just went in circles, but the spirit of the song is there, somewhere. I think. It’s a pretty good song from his childhood at any rate.

Anyway, Gideon has a wife and 5 kids that he squints at when he’s not squinting at a computer screen. As distractions, Gideon enjoys riding bicycles of several different types, woodworking and Making. He’s been at this Graphic Design and Illustration thing for a long time; having graduated from Utah State University in 1999- the same year his current vehicle was manufactured. Gideon would like to continue this Graphic Design and Illustration thing for a long time, and will probably end up doodling things on the inside of his coffin lid. That’s the goal, anyway.

Don’t stop believing.
