Bryan Dion, Development
Bryan graduated in 2002 with a BS in Computer Science and Mathematical Modeling. After graduating Bryan worked as an Web developer and E-Document manager for a highly successful Law Firm. In just a few short months he managed to resolve many technical issues as well as costly maintenance issues thrawting the firms growth and potential.
Sensing that he had accomplished all of his goals and seeing no further growth in his career he moved onto Transportation Engineering. Over the next 2 years he developed toll road and parking garage systems across the country including one of the first variable pricing HOT systems in the country. During the time at the engineering firm he continued to work nights and weekends on web development projects. In 2005, he moved to a small marketing firm, Transcendigital, as a lead developer. Over the next 2 years he worked on developing sites for Bank of America, FLIR Thermography, The Connecticut Forum, and several other high profile clients.
Finally after years off working for others, he decided that having the freedom to work on his own projects fueled his passion for web development and was lucky enough to find a talented web designer, Robin Towle-Fesco, who he trusted and had already the pleasure of working along side. Over the past few years, despite one of he worst economies in generations, Jumpstart has continued to grow it's client base and amass an extensive portfolio of amazing projects along with a track record of prociding our clients with the tools to fuel their success.
Robin Towle-Fecso, Creative
Graduated from Central Connecticut State University in 2000 with a Graphic/Informational Design BA degree. Robin then saw opportunity of good growth in the design field by moving down to Stamford, CT. She was fortunate enough to have worked with two well known agencies in the East Norwich and Westport areas.
Modem Media, gave her the know-how in online advertising and dynamic website integrations for Fortune 100 and 500 companies such as: IBM, Kraft Foods, UBS Warburg, Weight Watchers, and John Hancock website redesign, Citibank drive-to-web, JCPenney “It’s All Inside” campaign, and the GM flash site redesign. Robin then worked for Alden Image Network which gave her experience in all facets of design with mixed print and web media projects for high profile client trade shows and events like: Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, Honeywell, Bayer, MassMutual, UBS Warburg, ING, Coke-Cola and Guiness. After several years building her resume down in southern CT, Robin returned to the Hartford area. With her employment at Transcendigital, she gained more knowledge with designing for online tools and web/print integration for clients such as Bank of America, The Connecticut Forum, Beardsley Zoo, FLIR, and The Hartford.
After some years with agencies and much experience from them, Robin decided to take her career to the next level, start her own business. Beginning slow, with family and friends, she mainly worked, from a freelance basis. Then good friend and past co-worker, Bryan Dion informed her, one day, that he too was joining the freelance workforce. Bryan's amazing knowledge in the programming world and Robin's experience in design would make for a great team! So Jumpstart was born and officially opened their doors, in 2007.
