Kenny Eliason

Kenny Eliason

CTO / Evangelist / Founder

Having grown up the son of a marketer, the skills of the trade are pumping through his blood. When you couple that with his programming and computer knowledge, you get an explosive combination. Kenny has been an avid digital marketer for over 9 years now, often being the first to recognize the hottest trends coming to the market.

In his free time, Kenny loves downhill mountain biking. He calls it his “old man sport” since BMX was what he did as a teenager and it’s not quite as easy to ride those little bikes anymore. Kenny is also a huge technology enthusiast, specifically when it comes to Apple products – did someone say, fanboy? Those close to him are often asking for help solving tech-related problems which often results with them saying, “man, you can fix anything!”

Tyler Wiegand

Tyler Wiegand

Senior Software Developer

Tyler is quick, analytical, and really really smart. Sometimes too smart. He’s a full stack PHP developer, which means he’s the equivalent of a one-man band for web technology—front end, back end, and DevOps.

Tyler is a musician, sound engineer, competitive video game player, husband, father to a super cute baby, and avid movie quoter. Earlier in his career he served in the Navy as a radioman on a guided missile submarine. After his five-year contract with the Navy ended, he went to development school and started his own development company in New Mexico. He made his way back to his hometown of Las Vegas, where he now builds websites and web apps with us!

Trevor Lippard

Click Funnel Specialist

Shortly after graduating from college and reaching the end of his baseball career, (he and John both played baseball in college!) Trevor started to find his passion with digital marketing. After staring a small side hustle selling products on Amazon, he realized there was a lot more to this than just selling a product. This journey took him down the path to discovering all the amazing things that can be done through digital marketing. From a broad view right down to the tiniest of details, Trevor’s understanding of digital marketing is what makes him a great addition to our team.

In his spare time, Trevor likes to spend his time with friends and family. He likes to stay active with sports, working out, playing video games, and snowboarding.

Chase Cates NeONBRAND

Chase Cates

UI/UX Designer

Chase is our UI/UX designer and he takes care of all things design and branding around here. His combination of right and left brain thinking is a killer combo that leads to designs that are super cool on the surface and highly functional when you look a little deeper.

He grew up in Saint Louis before his family moved to lovely Las Vegas. He went to school at AAU in San Francisco and eventually made his way back to Las Vegas to work as a full-time graphic designer, video editor, and UI/UX designer.

As a hardcore foodie he loves to eat out at new spots and cook (especially pasta, which we are patiently waiting for him to bring into the office). When not at work he can be found in a coffee shop in the Arts District, at a concert, or on a quick weekend road trip.

Macie Stratton NeONBRAND

Macie Stratton

Content and SEO Specialist

Macie joined our team in 2017 and works her magic out of both our Las Vegas and Provo offices. She is a WordPress content master, technical SEO pro, and just a really REALLY nice person to have around.

She’s one of several native Las Vegans on our team, and she moved to Utah last year to go to college. Her Vegas blood runs thick, though. As a business student at Brigham Young University, Macie is often caught working at odd hours when she isn’t studying.

She’s a diehard Disneyland lover (season pass holder, in fact) and she likes to play tennis when she isn’t studying or working. We love Macie!
