Makah Encarnacao 

/MOCKah inKARˈnäsou/

Makah Encarnacao has been involved in pro bono work since late 2015, when she started the Humanitarian Committee at Soliant Consulting. When she’s not building FileMaker apps as a Tech Lead at Soliant, there’s a good chance you’ll find her playing hide and seek with her two strong-willed, rambunctious, hilarious little girls. Pro tip: Hide in the guest bathroom! No one thinks to look there!

Chris Kubica

/kris KuhBICK’uh/

Chris is President of Application Architects, has been a FileMaker Developer since 1997. Chris is also a father, poet and avid reader. He lives in North Carolina in constant, low-grade fear of the effects of global climate change.

Jonathan Nicoletti

/ˈyänəTHən NēKōLETē/

Jonathan is the Founder of Acolyte Applications. After starting his career at a non-profit, he has refined his focus to empower organizations with technology that works for them. When he’s not making awesome stuff, he’s usually hanging in one of his many hammocks and sipping tea while staring at words on paper.
