    Judy Asman

    Judy founded Judy Asman Communication in 2005 primarily as a print writing service. In 2007, her company evolved into a Web design home-based business fueled by the demand of her existing clients. Today, Judy provides a wide range of traditional and new media services thanks to her diverse background in mass media and communications.

    She started her career as a disc jockey at KUSF-FM, 90.3 while attending the University of San Francisco. Back then, she was known on-air as “Mad Mad Judy,” inspired by the song of the same name by Buzzcocks, a British punk band. At the same time, she held multiple positions within radio, including promotions director and music director.

    Later, Judy went on to pursue her Master’s in Journalism and Public Affairs at American University. While she enjoyed working at C-SPAN and Potomac News Bureau, what struck her the most was her final student project consisting of building a Web page. This was back in 1996. She learned HTML from “HTML for Dummies” and by studying the code of Bill Maher’s website for “Politically Incorrect.”

    Almost 10 years later, after hours upon hours of hard work in corporate communications, Judy started her own company and re-learned Web design to stay on top of digital marketing solutions. Today, she integrates her knowledge to operate a leading-edge digital marketing practice. She has a variety of SEO, Web design and PR clients around the U.S. When she’s not at the beach or in the nearest TGI Friday’s watching sports, she’s helping women to stay fit, healthy and strong as a fitness coach and meal plan consultant. She still misses her dog, the late and great Latte, who is featured in the photo with her.

    Christian Ziebarth

    Christian began working on the Web in 1996 when he was informed of GeoCities. He began learning HTML in 1998 and CSS in 1999—doing things in CSS via Netscape 4 that few people knew could be done at the time.

    Since 2000 he has worked on projects of varying sizes and continues to explore new frontiers on the Web. He has experience in HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, WordPress and more.

    A native of Orange County, Christian is widely known in the local food scene as the founder and blogger for OC Mex Food, where he’s helped a number of start-up eateries gain agency level attention thanks to his detailed reviews and respect by his loyal following. His deep technical knowledge makes him a more-than-welcome speaker at Meetups catering to local digerati.

    Compounded with his Bachelor’s in Psychology from Brigham Young University, Hawaii, Christian’s technical knowledge helps him to successfully translate the client vision through Web design and online strategies.

    Jud Kilgore

    Los Angeles native Jud Kilgore is the prototypical, multi-faceted Gen-X guy and not afraid to admit it. After working several years in television animation on wildly popular children’s shows in Hollywood, California, he made a drastic shift and moved into the food and beverage world. He attended culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu, studying patisserie and baking, when he discovered that his passion was not in the kitchen but out front, whipping up strong drinks and soothing anxious party guests.

    In 2010, he moved to Minneapolis to raise a family and pursue a Bachelor’s in emerging media. His feet now firmly planted in the mysterious/fascinating/confounding/hellishly cold Midwest, he’s shifted his focus into learning what makes effective writing.

    For fun, he dabbles in music, makes hard cider, plays with his amazing daughter, and contributes to the local arts community, most notably as a frequent participant in the local fear factory, The Haunted Basement, where he accosts and scares the bejeesus out of patrons ’til they cry uncle.
