In 2005, Lowell started working remotely with the team of Boston-based Mequoda Systems, moving them to WordPress in 2006 and serving as their Chief Information Architect. His work for Mequoda includes custom themes based on the Foundation front-end framework and creation of plugins for integrating payment processors and email service providers.

Lowell began designing websites in 1998 and developing websites in 2001. He studied architecture and graphic design at the College of Design at North Carolina State University and earned a Bachelor of Environmental Design in Visual Design/Product Design.

Dan Allen

Dan began working remotely with Lowell in 2012 while living in San Francisco, eventually moving back to the mountains of Western North Carolina to take up a full-time position. He has designed, built and maintained part or all of more than two dozen WordPress websites, and especially enjoys the design process. He has created custom illustrations and logo designs and seems especially suited to helping support his clients’ individual visions for their online presence. Well versed in Adobe, a capable front-end specialist and adept at back-end integration as well as server setup and maintenance, Dan brings a lot to any team he’s on.

Dan graduated from UNC-Asheville in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts in Literature and Creative Writing. He spends every minute he can spare on music, and has released 4 albums in the last 3 years under various bands and projects. He hopes to one day tour the world performing his songs, but for now he is content to work on them at home. He has a loving partner named Devon and a temperamental cat named Binx.
