The truth is, we’re very fond of the people we work with and the people that hire us to work with them. The company was started by a group of friends in 2002 in search of a way to make a difference in the world while surrounding ourselves with folks that felt more like family than colleagues or customers. We have always been attracted to passionate people that are willing to put their money where their mouths are.
