The WIREWAVES MANAGEMENT TEAM
(in alphabetical order)
Lewis Ayers seems to know a little about everything... and is more than happy to expound on it ad nauseam. An analytical thinker, Lewis was an avionics technician in the Air Force working on KC-135's when on a whim he decided to teach himself C, just because he wanted to see how far he could stretch the boundaries of what it can do. After getting a degree in Information Technology, he taught himself a plethora of different web languages, simply because they were easier to learn than C was.
When we found him, Lewis was troubleshooting customer problems on site for a wireless Internet and communications company, and was MORE than happy to finally put his programming knowledge to the test. We obliged in spades. Which is a good thing as he has a wife, two kids, and a sizable menagerie of exotic animals to feed.
Jay Koebele is our "kinda sorta" Scoutmaster. He keeps the marketing and audio departments focused, he tests the web developer work, cheers on the art department, and generally assists the management team in doing whatever it is that management does.
A graduate of the University of Florida with a Bachelor's degree in PR, He's spent 20 years in Marketing and Promotions, first as a successful executive in the music and entertainment industries (including Atlantic Records, Warner Bros. Records, and even MTV!) and has spent his recent years in Online Marketing. Plus Jay, a vegetarian and father of three, is frugal. Need a coupon for dog treats, asparagus tips, or an oil change for your Edsel? Go to Jay. He'll save you almost as much money as Omniopolis will!
Matt Orsman draws pictures. We keep him around specifically as he lives close enough to the offices to check in on the place after hours if there is a problem. That and his two kids often serve as muses around here, which we're pretty sure is their mom's influence. He's been working as a professional cartoonist and designer since 1986. His graphic design has also contributed to the successful completion of three major motion pictures; the first Transformers and Iron Man films, and Get Smart. His work was actually seen ON SCREEN in all three films, and in the case of Get Smart, graced the key art (read: movie poster) too!
Matt is also the producing director of CathARTic Art and Film Events, LLC, an organization that puts on workshops, screenings, forums and art shows based on film genres such as Horror, Sci-fi, Westerns, and Film Noir.
Bryan Pulliam likes starting things... mostly businesses. In 1985 he started Postal Presort, which is becoming one of the United States preeminent document automation firms. Then in 1999 he started Canter, LC, the producer of the Grazier System, a portable and modular electric fence system. And in 2009, he formed Wirewaves, LLC. We're waiting to see what he comes up with in 2019! Bryan started as a court reporter and professional typist; in fact we're pretty sure he still holds the typing speed record for his college. He has a huge family at his homestead in Udall, KS, mostly made up of dogs, cats, horses and wild birds.
Laurie Tillman made us promise not to do any more jokes about her selling drugs in a former career. She did, however, spend 20 years in the pharmaceutical business before following her bliss and parlaying her artistic talent into a career. Laurie graduated from Wichita Tech with a double major in New Media Technologies and Print Production, where she won several international design awards. She went directly from Wichita Tech into a job at a leading Wichita Internet marketing firm, where she worked with hundreds of clients from all over the U.S. designing, developing or improving their web presence.
