Hey there! I’m Jake Brokaw and I recently joined Formstack as a Web Designer.

I’m from Ohio but I will be moving to Austin, TX this month! I graduated from the University of Toledo with a degree in Information Systems and have spent the past two years at Nationwide Insurance as a UI Developer.

I’m a big Cleveland sports fan…yes that includes the Browns unfortunately. I enjoy playing sports as well, mainly basketball. I try to play in a few rec leagues when I have the time. My wife and I recently got married in August 2014 and we have two wild cats. Outside of work, my wife and I enjoy watching movies, doing random art projects, and exploring the city to find cool coffee shops.

‘ello! I’m Alex Lustenberg and I’m happy to be joining the Formstack Team as a Systems Progra… er, DevOps Engineer!  I’m the person who makes sure that our servers are running smoothly, and who meets the technical needs of our excellent development team.

After cutting my teeth on Linux in the late 90s, I spent the last 15 odd years doing high performance full stack development and system administration.   Bred and born in Northern Kentucky, I spent a few years traveling across the midwest til’ coming to my senses and returning back home to the ancestral stomping grounds, where I’ve been happily married to my wonderful wife of 9 years.

When not giving data servers the stink eye, both my wife and I enjoy scuba diving in local quarries (and sometimes warmer waters!) as well as treating cars improperly in autocross events.

Hi! My name is Christian Ready. Although by day I’m a mild-mannered product manager, my second career in astronomy is one I began at age 13, when I started working at the Sproul Observatory at Swarthmore College in 1983. After college a few years later, I worked on the Hubble Space Telescope in the 1990’s (my claim to fame prior to joining Formstack). Today I’m an adjunct professor at Towson University and instructor at the Launch Pad Astronomy Workshop.

Speaking of writers, I’m married to an amazing one, (proving that I am the luckiest person I’ve ever met).  I try my hand at writing from time to time, but I also enjoy reading, playing poker (or trying to at least), watching movies, and listening to the Grateful Dead.

Although I’m from the Philly area, we’re now all settled down in Maryland, where I push solar-powered electrons around in my bit to make Formstack go!

Hiya! I’m Anna Robertson. I’m the first Canadian stacker and newest Product Designer at Formstack! I hail from Kingston, Ontario – Canada’s first capital city.

My degree is in Fashion, but ever since I stepped off campus, I’ve been working in the wide world of web. I taught myself to code and have spent the past 7 years designing and building beautiful internets.

I am a big music nerd and when I’m not working, I’m playing guitar and singing in 5 bands. You may also find me snuggling my dog and cat, playing softball, silversmithing, reading, socializing, and eating all the things.
