Our team is unusually versant in technology outside of their main realm. You can compare them to swiss army knives, basically.

After studying architecture and design, Michael started Byte Studios in Milwaukee in 1998 to do what he loved the most: design and programming. He hired a team of the best people he knew at his university and started creating websites for DAF Corp, the people that became The Dickman Company, Lakefront Brewery, Milwaukee Public Radio, Summerfest and CBS58. (DAF Corp and Dickman are still clients today.) In 15 years, he's led Byte to work with brands including Sephora, Givaudan and Diagio/Jose Cuervo.
While at Byte, Michael opened The National, an award-winning, local, sustainable and organic restaurant two doors down from the Studios. He subsequently sold it for $100 to one of Milwaukee's most promising chefs. It made the news. In Canada. And the UK.
Before founding Byte Studios, Michael worked as a short course instructor, systems manager and information technology trainer and practitioner for I&MT at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee, which is where Michael studied architecture and art. He graduated with an BFA in graphic design.

Joel's mission is to simplify our development workflow and reduce the need for tedious, mundane coding. His points of focus are Byte's commerce system, Web analytics for our client dashboards, obscure third-party APIs, and our internal framework which we use to help build the majority of our websites. His dream is to someday work primarily on iOS apps, so get those great ideas to us!
When he's not at work, he enjoys browsing reddit, watching doctor who, listening to nerdist podcasts, writing about himself in third person, and breaking the fourth-wall. He devotes much of his time to learning about the latest web technologies and techniques; curating the best to campaign for at Byte or to just improve his own programming skills.
