Who we are

At Showit, our goal is to build tools that will activate the creativity that exists in everyone.

Meet the Team

Hello, I'm Todd and I’m an entrepreneur who got started with David Jay building his website in 2005 and then together we built tools that have allowed thousands of photographers to create their own unique presence online. I’ve recently stepped into this new role leading our team and I’m extremely excited about the gifts and passions of this group that are inventing amazing tools to serve you. I am blessed beyond measure with a wonderful wife and four boys and we enjoy building with Legos or playing with Transformers. I’ll clear my head with some distance running or training for a triathlon and I’m always up for a challenge!

Co-Founder/CEO

Todd Watson

Hi, I'm Elisa, the other half to Showit CEO and Owner Todd Watson. While you may not often find me in the Mothership, I am frequently to be found doing other things behind the scenes--brainstorming and dreaming and collaborating with Todd and other members of the team, writing and editing company material, and hosting our team or friends of the company for various events, to name a few. I love this company, I love our team, I love our industry partners, and I love the direction Todd is leading it all.

I am a mother to four smart, funny, kind and amazingly chill boys. I love good storytelling of all sorts, from books to blogs to television to movies to music, which has translated to a love of writing as well. I would rather bake than cook, I drink my coffee black and my wine red, and springtime in Arizona is my favorite. I am an ISFJ, which basically means I am a social introvert, and spending meaningful time with my family and my friends absolutely fills me up.

Greetings, I’m Aaron. People come to me and say “Can we do this?” or “How hard would it be to...?” and then I get to figure out how to do it. I am an idea implementor. I have been writing code and keeping servers running at Showit since 2007. I am excited about the future of Showit and the cool stuff we will get to create together. I am blessed to have a beautiful Australian as wife and two amazing boys as my sons. I enjoy all things sci-fi, building with Legos, gaming, but most of all I enjoying spending time with my family.

Hey! I’m Jason and I’ve been a part of the Showit team since 2007. My passion is helping creatives find new and exciting ways to succeed in their businesses. I also love sharing stories about how what we do has made a difference in someones life. I might have the coolest job ever. When I’m not on the interwebs, you can find me in my workshop making stuff out of wood or at home hanging out with my beautiful wife and three crazy kids. I once found an opossum living in my Prius and I got a nosebleed in the middle of my wedding ceremony. Let’s hangout sometime and I’ll tell you those stories and you can tell me some of yours.

Hi! I'm Cassandra and I feel privileged to be part of Team Showit. I have loved seeing Showit grow since I started in 2007. Have you made a website yet? Oh my goodness, is it fun! These guys and girls blow me away. I know you will be blown away by all that Showit has to offer. And hopefully the service will blow you away as well. I very much enjoy serving you, as a member of Team Showit, and my family, as a member of Team Campbell. With my husband, we attempt to lead three tiny people in the navigating the world. It is definitely a privilege, but between you and me, navigating Showit is so much easier than navigating a family!

Hi, I’m Tammy. I would like to first clarify that Todd is my brother-in-law! His wife, Elisa is an amazing woman, also quite a bit taller than I. I am blessed to have married into this family and have been part of the Showit family since 2007. Today I find myself leading the finance, H/R and administration areas. I stay behind the scenes, but I’m here for you and love my job at Showit! My husband is the pitching coach at the nearby university. We think we are still “parents in training” even though our four unique children span from preschoolers to teenagers. It’s an adventure! One interesting fact about me is that I founded the women’s a cappella group at ASU.

Hey, I’m JT (Jefferson Todd). I’m excited to be working with Showit as the Design Lead to help bring a consistent look to everything you see us do. I have worked as a photographer myself and I’m passionate about helping other photographers grow their business by assisting them with developing a great website. The love of my life, Ashley, and I were married in Oct 2012 at our favorite vineyard in Paso Robles, CA. We both love wine and plan to own a vineyard at some point in our lives. We have two golden retrievers who are appropriately named Napa and Sonoma. You can find their own Instagram @TheGoldenPals

Hello! “Have you turned it off and on again?” My name is Christian and if you haven't guessed, I’m a support pro here at Showit. I started with Showit in 2012 and have enjoyed every minute. I have chatted with many of you and helped with issues with email, domains names, and once someone came to chat about their dog (serious). I enjoy spending time with my wife and two young kids. I enjoy a good burger and love Dr Pepper. In my spare time I like to read, play board games (I’ll trade you a sheep for a wheat), shoot skeet, bass guitar, and am currently struggling to learn the banjo.

Hey! I’m John and I am a certified support superhero for Showit. I love Showit and I’m excited to help you explore all the fantastic possibilities we have to offer. I grew up in East Africa so if you ever need a good story I’m your man. I love talking to new people and can’t wait to meet you. I enjoy creating new and exciting imagery when shooting wedding cinematography as a side business. I also enjoy getting out and into the great outdoors and am an avid fly fisherman.

Hey, I'm Field, yes Field (my parents did that to me), I am one of the newest members of the Showit crew, probably the loudest, and definitely the most talkative. I am the Community Lead, so I will hopefully be shaking your hand, and giving you Bacon scented bear hugs in the very near future. I met a beautiful woman 15 years ago, and fooled her into becoming my wife 10 years ago. We went on to have 3 amazing kiddos in the span of 34 months, which sounds crazy because it is. Apart from being a member of the Crew, I am the lesser half of Ace & Whim, a husband and wife film photography team specializing in weddings and female portraits. All in all, I believe that three things make the world a better place, LOVE, RESPECT and BACON!!!

Hey, I'm Nate, and I've been designing and developing websites since the late 90s. I'm fascinated with user experience and how people expect things to work. My goal at Showit is to enable our users to create stunning websites to help their businesses thrive, removing as many technological barriers as possible. I'm really excited to be working with the Showit team. I love spending time with my wife and four kids. Together we're a healthy mix of sweet, spicy, fun awkwardness. I never thought being a grown up would be this joyful, adventurous, difficult, messy, humorous, and unexpected, but it is. I highly recommend it.

Hi! I’m Jed. I keep busy answering questions about Showit 5 and designing graphics and layouts for your website designs! I’m so pumped to be able to work with such an awesome team, serving you and doing amazing things together with Showit 5! Jed is short for Jedediah. I was born in California, but the majority of my early life was spent on the island of Guam (fifteen years). Guam is also where I met my best friend, Crystal, who was born in New Hampshire. She and I have been married since 2004 and have four amazing children. I love being a husband and father! When I’m not trying to make my wife and kids laugh, I enjoy watching movies, playing soccer, listening to/making music, deep and challenging conversations, Taco Bell, Mountain Dew and pretty much any creative project I can get my hands on!

Hi! I’m Jeff and I am one of your friendly neighborhood support pros here at Showit! A transplant from California to Arizona I decided to trade the beach for the heat so I could be a part of the Showit family! Getting to help all of you wonderful creative people work on sites that better your business is truly the best job I have ever had, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world, but I would trade it to be an astronaut because that is outta this world. When I’m not at the office you will probably find me somewhere, eating food. I love going out with my lovely wife and trying new restaurants! If not out and about then probably at home watching some Netflix or perhaps working on my own photographic skill. Let’s chat sometime, about your website or otherwise and get to know one another.

Hey there, I’m Jon and I’m a support pro here at Showit. If you request a new blog or a blog migration, I’m the man for the job. I’m excited to be working for Showit and helping my brother, Todd, build an amazing community and serve our wonderful Showiteers. I am married to Tammy, who also works for Showit, and together we have a wonderful blended family of 3 girls and a boy. When I am not busy helping our Showiteers, I am probably on the baseball field serving in the capacity of a pitching coach at one of the community colleges in the area. I also teach online classes at the same community college.

Hi! I'm Jihae Watson! A great way to remember my name is to say: "Gee, what was her name again? Hey! I remember! It's Gee Hey!" I was born in Seoul, grew up in Toronto, Ontario and now live in Gilbert, Arizona. I love all three cities so very much as I have plenty of family, and favorite restaurants in all three locations. Food, family, faith, and social media keep me fueled up! Which is great since I am part of the Social Media Team here at Showit, since the middle of 2016. I LOVE working here and getting to know our Showiteers through Instagram and Facebook and other platforms. I have been deliriously happily married to a stud named Chris for over a decade, and we have three fantastic kids. Together we love being a foster family, and we presently have the sweetest little foster babe, who is an actual ray of sunshine.

Hi, I'm Ben. It’s my job to help Showit better understand and care for our customers. I help manage our customer relationship processes and I also double as a customer support pro. I get a lot of time interacting with the very special creatives like you that make Showit a success!

I met my wife in Japan, and we're blessed with two young and energetic boys that I love to run around and play with! I enjoy hiking, writing and reading books, and both creating and appreciating paintings. Being a creative person myself, I’m excited to be a part of the Showit team enabling creatives around the world to live their dreams!

Hi, my name is Kylen! I have a fun fact: Kylen is actually a Gaelic place-name referring to the narrows. Yeah, not really sure what to make of that either so let me know if you figure it out. My heart belongs to the outdoors and experiencing new adventures. My one big dream is to backpack through the Swiss Alps from start to finish. When you can't find me in Showit Support I probably am out climbing trees or wrestling bears (or sitting on my couch wishing it were so).

Hi, y’all! I’m Cassie Jones and I’m new around Showit but no stranger to being a Showiteer. I live in the South with my husband of 10 years and two children and we enjoy our quiet life on our family farm. I’m a wedding photographer and came to love Showit through my years of being an active part of the community. I love hugs, writing, cooking and you can always find me reading a good book. I’m working on community events for Showit and loving every minute of the work I get to do with the amazing team to help build our community and grow photographers around the world.

I'm Eddie. I write code. I build websites. I play with my kids' legos. I drink a lot of coffee. If I could be anybody, I'd be an Inkling. I was really broken up when they took Psych off of Netflix. I love talking about theology and books and movies and science fiction and life. I pretty much love talking in general, especially if there's a delicious beverage associated with it.

If we get together, tell me what you'd like to build, and let's make it happen together. Or if you're just killing time, ask me about the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis and I'll buy you some coffee.

The Showit Robot was built in 2004 in a small factory in Okinawa, Japan. He was originally designed to deliver singing telegrams to birthday parties. He was always on time and always enjoyed bringing exciting messages to people. In 2005 the robot had an unfortunate work accident involving an angry pug and a swimming pool. Sadly, his creators shipped him off to Arizona to be sold for parts. One day at a garage sale, the robot was purchased by none other than Showit CEO Todd Watson! Todd made him better than ever and gave him a new life and purpose working at Showit delivering client contact forms. He was recently awarded his very own company phone with which he loves to send and receive text messages.
