Barbara took her first computer programming class in 1979, and "kept her hand in" computers for several years before teaching herself the languages of the web, and starting her own web development company in 1998. In the interim, she brought a personal touch to radio in small and medium markets in Nebraska, Kansas, and Colorado. In addition, Barbara has owned and operated marketing/promotions/advertising related businesses in both Fort Collins and Denver. Barbara is an experienced web designer/developer; she designed, developed and maintains this site, and a long list of others.
Barbara has always made charitable giving a part of her business plan. In Fort Collins, her business provided the delivery of advertising for such non-profit organizations as The American Red Cross, Rocky Mountain High School Marching Band, and worked with Developmental Pathways, and other youth and disabled-adult programs. She regularly donates her time to worthy organizations, and creates and maintains websites for non-profit organizations such as Bestwork Industries for the Blind.
"Barbara is the woman to know! She's a wonderful source of information and inspiration." - Tara Becker, Owner, The Elle Group, Westminster CO
"If you are in business and marketing is an important part of your business you owe it to yourself to talk to Barbara." John Nelson, Coach/Trainer/Associate, Achievement Dynamics, Denver, Colorado
"Barbara brings with her a wealth of knowledge that she shares with her clients and those that she networks with. Her creativity and out of the box thinking are inspiring. Barbara has been a great person for me to know here in Denver and helped me a lot as I was getting started in my company and for this I am thankful. Barbara also was a guest speaker for a class I taught on web development for 4-6th grade girls at Girls Inc. of Metro Denver. The girls enjoyed Barbara very much and got to see an inspiring women role model for their potential technological aspirations." Steve Kessler, Owner and Educator, Denver DataMan
John started his radio career in 1979, shortly after graduating from Littleton High School in Littleton, Colorado. After attending technical classes at a local broadcasting school, John was fortunate enough to land his first radio job, engineering/producing shows for Bill Barker, Alan Berg and Peter Boyles on KWBZ Radio.
John was also in on one of Denver talk radio's more daring moves, as Irv Brown (NCAA Basketball Official, TV Sports Commentator & Colorado Sports Hall of Fame Class of 1997) and Woody Paige (of ESPN's Around The Horn) formed their own company, The Sportstalk Group, Inc., and purchased their daily afternoon drive time radio time slot from a radio station. In the early to mid-80's, Sportstalk with Irv, Woody and Joe Williams was owned, produced and sold by the 2 main hosts and a partner; and it worked! John covered several Denver Bronco Training Camps. His last was in 1983, John Elway's Rookie Season. John also produced radio broadcasts for the Colorado Rockies (NHL Hockey) and Denver University Hockey (WCHA).
