A graduate of Georgia Southern University, and starting her career in Hilton Head and then Charleston, South Carolina, she has lived in Brevard, North Carolina for the past 4 years.

A digital marketing and SEO expert, Amanda is a whiz at content planning, copywriting, social media management and all things SEO.

Amanda currently lives in Brevard, North Carolina with her 4 year old daughter and husband. She enjoys walking, wine, cheese, cooking, reading and writing and spending time with her family. Her heart is in Brevard and she is proud to call this charming little town her home and looks forward to raising her daughter in one of the most enchanting places on earth.
Bowman is from England where he was educated at Eton College and the University of Cambridge, where he read Modern and Medieval Languages. He likes to think of code as just another type of language and he speaks French and Italian and reads/writes Spanish and can order a 5-course meal in both German and Turkish. On the code side, he is well-versed in PHP/MySQL, can work CSS and HTML like a champion and sometimes wishes that Flash was still viable. His working background ostensibly began in New York City in the mid-1990s where he worked for a boutique ad agency as Technical Director. The firm’s clients included Nickelodeon, New Line Cinema, Mercedes-Benz and General Mills. After having a family, he moved to Memphis, Tennessee when offered a job teaching Digital Art and running all the systems at Memphis College of Art. While there, he completed freelance web development jobs for the Indie Memphis Film Festival, the New York Student Exchange Program and the Memphis College of Art itself. (Nepotism? Sure but…)
Currently based in Asheville, NC, Bowman enjoys cooking, reading, playing bass in loud bands, and wrangling his 11 and 15 year-old children, who become more challenging with each setting sun. He wouldn’t trade places with anybody.
