Elisa has been with SND since Day 1 - helping to accelerate Social News Desk into premiere newsroom software. The former Executive Producer delights in working with 'her kind of people' (news people) every day. When she's not, you'll find her rocking out at the dance fitness studio she owns in Florida.
Aaron is a technology innovator and cultivator of successful people and teams. He believes software should bring joy to its users and constantly evolve to their needs. In his early teens he started his career by cold-calling his first web-design customer, later in his mid-thirties he crushed a karaoke outing by singing a Backstreet Boys song, so he's going places.
Apryl is a 22-year veteran of the media industry with experience in news, marketing and sales. During that time she has held just about every job conceivable - except running the printing press. Apryl loves being at the forefront of technology and creating great products. She lives in Atlanta with her boyfriend and two rescue dogs, one of whom has his own viral video.
Sarah is not a morning person, which explains her previous life as a morning show producer. She loves helping newsrooms find ways to slay social media strategy, almost as much as she loves the San Antonio Spurs. As SND’s most spirited Texan, she feels it's her duty to educate the team on tacos and warm weather.
Jordan and social media 'becoming a thing' was an accidental match. He's an avid user of things digital, social and selflessly, enjoys helping others.

Jordan resides in Dayton, Ohio (innovative and history rich) with his wife and three boys.
Kelli is thrilled to reunite with newsrooms even though she’s not stacking a rundown. Learning the ins and outs of digital toolsets is her jam and she thrives on helping others succeed by making sure they understand “why” something works. When Kelli’s not training newsrooms on a new feature, she’s probably getting crushed by her kids during family game night. Kelli lives in the Chicagoland area with her husband and two daughters.
Chris Hull takes a lot of pride in building software with the goal of impressing the user. He loves being part of developing modern UIs that are interesting and enjoyable to use.

When he’s home with his wife and foster cats, he enjoys cooking and eating – especially experimenting with international foods.
