While most high school graduates run off to their next party-filled endeavor, Parker chose a different path. Deciding on taking a gap year to attend the Joshua Wilderness Institute, he chose the program because it focuses on service and ministry, with a Bible-based pilgrimage to Israel. A self-proclaimed "talkative guy", Parker loves the opportunity to meet people from all over the world - through websites. When he is not talking websites, he is looking for the next group sporting event to enhance his athletic aptitude. Whether at Top Golf, or playing Ultimate Frisbee (his current passion), or at the office, no matter where he is, or what he is doing, Parker always brings a lot of heart and energy. You can hear more about Parker on this podcast episode!
Monica is an Arizona native, having grown up in Tucson and Casa Grande. She has had several different career paths, including manager at Harkins (she loves movies, so that was a major win!) and a massage therapist. But now she is here at Showit, and we are so thankful to have this hard working, gentle, and delightful soul on our Support Squad. Monica may seem quiet and reserved, but she is a warrior at heart and always ready to help those in need. If you are interested in hearing more about her story, you can find out more here! When she isn’t working, she loves to hike, read, hang out with her hubby, Matt, and drink coffee. She says her love language is coffee. Which is perfect, cause coffee and GIFs are the primary languages spoken at Showit.
With a great love for the late Bob Ross, James grew up loving art, creating and designing. James went to Texas A&M for Exercise Science and business, as well as Dallas Theological Seminary. If you haven't gathered this yet - James has a great love of a vast array of things. He has run a successful music company, been a freelance photographer, and his latest (and greatest!) venture has been to be Jessica's husband. Whether James is hanging out with his new bride, playing sports, leading a group of young men, or taking pictures to fuel his creativity, he is undoubtedly having a great time. We are thankful to have this multi-talented and passionate creative on our team, as our Brand Developer.
Though Nathan is a Developer here at Showit, he should be a professional juggler. He has a Marketing degree from ASU, but has been a software engineer in his previous job, and is now a developer. He is a major self-learner and has been able to teach himself the skills that he now has. But when did he have time to develop these skills? He has been happily married for 12 years to his beautiful wife, Heather, and together they have 3 kids. They have been foster parents for the last 2 years, having welcomed over 7 kids into their family in that time. And they have a puppy. That they are currently trying to train. Why wouldn't you add a puppy to the mix?? So like we said, Nathan is something of a multi-tasking juggler, and maybe also a magician, and we are thankful to have him on our team!
Jessica is from Wisconsin, but somehow managed to make it all the way over to Arizona. This is probably because Jessica is always down for an adventure, and loves to travel and experience new places! Being married to Tanner is an adventure in itself, as he coaches minor league baseball, which has fortunately allowed her to travel quite a bit around the US. And having been on the road for the last year, Jessica has been able to work as a freelance graphic designer, where she gets to flex her creative muscles. And now as a Support Pro, she is excited to work with more creatives! And having been referred to as a ‘meme lord’, she is going to fit right in, as Showit employees are all fluent in the languages of GIFs, memes, and hugs. Jessica loves to laugh (especially while watching The Office), and apparently makes the best chocolate chip cookies (we are gonna need some of those to show up to our office to confirm), and we are excited to have her on our team!
Ethan is the youngest member of the Showit crew, but he is among the top in terms of his creativity and photography skills! Don't believe us? Whether you follow him on Instagram, or just want to hang out on his website, you will be taken aback by this young man's ability to capture a moment, tell a story, and evoke feelings in a single still shot. And this is all as a brand photographer! So powerful. And as a photographer, Ethan is stereotypically drawn to coffee shops and people watching. Even though he grew up in Iowa and Kentucky, we are thankful that Ethan has chosen to grow his roots here in the desert! Ethan is part of the Support Pro team, and next time you encounter him in a chat, ask him about his next branding project. Although, there was that one time that a customer was so in awe of Ethan's wizardry, that she asked Ethan to marry her. We will let you know if and when the nuptials will take place. For now, Ethan is accepting all wedding gifts at the Showit office!
As most kitchen sinks are full of an assortment of random, though useful items - so too is Adam Sink, one of our amazing Developers! Adam is not just some boring, stuffy, nerdy tech geek. He has a wicked quick wit, and a warm heart. He is dad to 2 strapping young lads, and does lots of fun stuff with them, like play video games. Among Us is a favorite at the moment, which inspired him to show up to our staff Halloween Party, and take second place, for his crewmate costume that he made himself! See? A jack of many trades! With his knowledge in the tech world, and having worked for this little company called GoDaddy for many moons, we are beyond ecstatic to have Adam on our team. He is all that and the kitchen sink!
What do you get when you combine a major love for snowboarding and wood working? A software developer, obviously!
Ok. So maybe those things don't necessarily go together, but Nick Randall is a developer, and he does love woodworking and snowboarding! Snowboarding is a little harder a hobby to fine-tune here in the desert, but fortunately, Nick has 2 little kids who keep him occupied and off the slopes. Nick is happily married to his beautiful wife, Kat, and together they juggle life with a baby and a toddler. Having graduated with a degree in Computer Animation, he is using his skills and passion as a developer here at Showit, and starting our first ever Video Game Book Club (it's like a book club, but with no books, just video games!)
Favorite pastimes include golfing, hockey, working out, reading massive theological textbooks (this one by MacArthur is a fave) and coding. How old would you think Nikita is? 40? Maybe 30? Well, this highly intellectual, deeply spiritual, and absolutely lovely and active young man just graduated high school in 2020. But beyond graduating from his high school in New Jersey, Nikita taught himself to code during the pandemic! Spending 8-10 hours a day on random coding projects, this new high school graduate made the pivot from wanting to study finance to now working here at Showit as a Junior Developer. And we are beyond thankful to have him on the team!
Have you ever met someone who is all at once totally practical, mature, and smart, but who also appreciates the cinematic mastery of Surf's Up? Well, now you have. Cole Simpson is an amazing Support Pro, who has joined our team from California. He was actually at Northwestern University on a Track scholarship (you can challenge him in a 400-800m race, but you will probably lose), until he suffered a rock-climbing injury (you still might lose to him in a race though). But Northwestern's loss is our gain for sure! Beyond running, and enjoying movies about penguins that are shot in a documentary style, Cole also loves the land of fantasy and the great outdoors. You can watch his creative brain really come alive when he is in the middle of a D&D game. Or when he is helping our customers out with their website issues. Welcome to the team, Cole!
