Katy is possibly the nicest person here at SiteLab. Which is a good thing because she's also our Director of Client Services, responsible for making sure our clients are receiving the service that they demand and deserve. She is the Manager of Account Managers. Managing a team of the best Account Managers on the planet makes her job seem like a piece of cake, but in all seriousness hers is probably the most difficult. It doesn't matter the source of the problem, it's the existence of the problem that Katy can't and won't stand. It's this problem-solving attitude that she imparts on our Client Services Department here at SiteLab. She mentors Account Managers here on the finer points of immersion into client businesses and the industry in general as technology changes faster than fads these days.

Don't let her soft exterior fool you though, she's also an avid biker who rides a '64 Triumph Cub. And she also runs marathons...no small feat. Her key accomplishments include development of strategies for the Bay Area Rapid Transit System (BART) to increase ridership, for Wolfgang Puck to extend customer reach, and for Jenny Craig to drive online conversions.

Ryan started his career in New York City 15 years ago, during the emerging online revolution of the late nineties. He cut his design chops at several interactive agencies throughout lower Manhattan, working for clients from financial to fashion. Out of these experiences, he developed a specialty for interactive animation and video. In search of an outdoor lifestyle, Ryan moved to San Diego where he's led a creative team for the better part of a decade. He spends most of his free time mountain biking, surfing, and exploring the southwest.

Ryan has a passion for interactivity, motion and clean design. He is an expert in interpreting a clients' design preferences and branding needs in order to effectively translate that client's brands online.

Mike ZeMans can honestly brag that he built some of the first commercial sites on the World Wide Web (remember when all sites had a gray background?).

Mike commonly advises on issues of user intent and expectations, conversion pathway analysis/optimization, search marketing, and overall UI & design.
