Team

Craig

Benevolent Founder

Craig also founded JailbreakCon, and following Snap Happening, he will be planning a convention for people who like to sit on their asses watching QVC.

Gini

Snapchat Goddess

Gini is the only one here who people actually like to follow. She swears that she will teach us all how to use snapchat filters any day now.

Simon

Serial Entrepreneur

As the only one amongst us with any business sense, Simon makes sure that the rest of us don't transfer all the convention funds to a Nigerian prince.

Ian

Code Monkey

Ian can't snapchat, hell, he can barely code. He got drunk with Craig once, and Craig swears he will release the video if Ian does not keep making him websites.

Bill

Starving Artist

Some say that he does not even own a stylus, that he edits his snaps with the power of his mind. All we know, is that he is called Bill.

Ben

Branding Ninja

Craig told us that MS Paint was not the right tool for branding, so we got Ben to do it instead. He swears he makes awesome geofilters too.

Nick

Class Clown

With Nick, every day is bad joke Monday. As the only other team member people might have heard of, Nick makes us look legitimate.

Cailin

Token Canadian

Globe trotting, food eating, gorilla chasing, beer drinker. She does it all, because the rest of us are on the no fly list.

Avery

Facebook Virtuoso

When Avery saw that none of us knew what we were doing, he started talking about conversions and pixels. We put him here so he would stop.
