Founder & President
Keen insight and a wise suggestion from his college advisor caused Jerritte to shift from the field of Counseling Psychology to Human Factors Psychology while attending Wright State University. A Minor in Computer Science was a natural addition to this track. And the rest is history. While working full time, Jerritte graduated cum laude as part of the Department of Psychology’s Honors Program, including publishing his Honors thesis research in the International Journal of Human-Computer Interaction.
Many design & development firms tout their usability “expertise.” Jerritte has the credentials and experience to back it up.
After graduating from WSU, Jerritte worked with a hand picked development team to concept, design, and develop a property management system for National City Bank (now PNC Bank). On the heels of that mammoth project, and after seven years of working toward the goal, Jerritte decided to partner with a lifelong friend in 2006, creating what is now Edge Webware, Inc.
Outside of the office, Jerritte is married to his beloved wife, Lisa, and has been blessed with two wonderful step-children. A devoted, practicing, and self-conscious Christian, it is his chief end to glorify and enjoy Christ Jesus in all that he does. This permeates every aspect of his life, including how he manages and directs Edge Webware.
In his spare time you’ll find him with a soccer ball at his foot or a pair of drum sticks in his hands. And when he’s in need of a little adrenaline, you might catch him jumping from a perfectly good airplane or dragging his knees around a race track on his sport bike. And yes, it’s a Ninja.
Back-end Developer, System Admin
A natural with all things “computer,” Jerold is our go-to guy for numerous technologies. From his nemesis, Flash, to his pride and joy, F#, he enjoys digging into ones and zeros to solve challenges that seem impossible to the rest of us mere mortals. As one of those guys who dreams in command line, he also serves as a top-notch system admin. Whether optimizing our Linux server, thwarting would be hackers, or making Windows bend to his will, he is an invaluable asset to Edge’s team!
Give him a keg of coffee and he’ll be hard at work digging into the Matrix. Javacript, PHP, C#, F#, MySQL, MSSQL, ECMAscript, Actionscript, Flash, Flex, WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, Umbraco, and Windows/Linux Server Administration are a few of the weapons in Jerold’s arsenal.
Front-end Developer, Designer
April is one of those rare jewels who can both design and code; and she is extremely fast at both. Earning a degree from the School of Advertising Art was just the tip of the iceberg — a tip that led to a long line of ADDY Awards, an Emmy nomination, two NETA awards, and published design.
But that wasn’t enough for April. Working both full time and running her own freelance business, she realized how valuable it would be if she also knew how to write code. Now she effortlessly takes projects from concept to prototype to final markup, creating inspiring and intuitive interactive experiences for our clients — and fast. She is constantly pushing the envelope with her knowledge of front-end coding practices. Never intimidated by learning anything new or challenging, she has extensive knowledge of the inner workings of various CMSs.
Plus, April’s extensive freelance experience gave her an understanding of and appreciation for first-class customer support and satisfaction. She is known for her lightning-fast support response times. As our main client training expert, her tutorials are clear, concise, and filled with everything our clients need to run their websites when we hand over the reins.
In her free time, she geeks out with WordPress, responsive design, sci-fi/fantasy books, and gaming. She also writes novels when you’re not looking. She’s the designer behind the new F# programming language logo.
Oh, and did we mention that she is fast?
