Lucia Escanellas is a GitHubber!

Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce you to the newest member of the GitHub Enterprise support team in Europe: Lucia Escanellas.

Lucia Escanellas

Lucia is from Montevideo, Uruguay where there are more cows than people (4:1 ratio), and has recently moved to Amsterdam, NL where there's more water than people (~100000:1 ratio). She studied physics at a University in Paris only to realize she'd prefer to read the whole computer science section from the local bookstore.

If you bump into Lucia, she'll probably jump into any conversation in French, on Ruby or Rails, Static vs Dynamic programming languages, security, and kittens or cute dogs. When she's not computing, she likes to watch Tiranos Temblad.

Be sure to follow her on Twitter and GitHub.

Welcome to the team, Lucia!

Craig Steinberger is a GitHubber!

Say hello to the newest member of the Enterprise Support team, Craig Steinberger!

Craig Steinberger

Craig is based out of Rochester, New York, and enjoys practicing Aikido, coffee, and watching cheesy 70's TV shows on Netflix.

Be sure to follow Craig on Twitter and GitHub. Welcome Craig!

An Enterprise IT™ veteran, Ben brings years of systems, hardware, and integration experience to the team. Ben is based in Kalamazoo, Michigan, but prior to GitHub, he relentlessly traveled the Midwest with Apple Professional Services (ironically) fixing every Active Directory server he could find.

Ben's first computer was a green screen Apple II. While he no longer has the computer, he managed to hold onto his vintage 5.25" floppy copy of Oregon Trail. It's proudly displayed in his house.

Most of his time is spent computing but you can find Ben hanging out at Bell's or running a Ragnar in his free time.

Follow Ben on GitHub.

Welcome Ben!

Matt Hartley is a GitHubber!

Your friendly neighborhood Support team is excited to welcome Matt Hartley to GitHub (and we hear the feeling is mutual)!

hartley-2

Matt joins us from the worlds of non-profit and retail management. His approach to everything in life is delightfully straightforward: be nice to everyone, and the rest will fall nicely into place.

He loves cooking dinner for his family and dreams of growing most of his own food someday. For now he keeps a simple herb garden which gets transformed into amazing pasta sauce about once a week. He spends his leisure days exploring the outdoors with his family and taking long road trips.

"I think it would be really cool to buy my boys a pet goat," Matt muses, "a luxury that I was afforded as a child and think that every kid should experience."

Follow him on GitHub and Twitter.

Elijah Buck is a GitHubber!

The Enterprise Support team just grew larger with the addition of Elijah Buck!

Elijah comes to us from Richland, Washington, or as he lovingly refers to it - the nuclear wasteland of Washington State. Previously, Elijah was responsible for the systems that ran the horse racing industry, so helping support the systems that manage our Enterprise customers' code is a natural next step.

When he's not shaving yaks, he's spending time with his family, laser dogs, and enjoying the outdoors.

Chris Kelly is a GitHubber!

Our marketing and community efforts recently grew in strength and size with the addition of Chris Kelly to our team.

Chris got his start with computers in 1993, learning to write HTML and viewing his work in Lynx. From there he studied philosophy, attempted to modernize the publishing industry, and perhaps most importantly, worked at a company that printed Star Wars and Disney scenes...on window blinds. About the only thing he hasn't done is pioneer one of the 90's most important fashion trends. We'll try to forgive him.

Welcome, Chris!

Jamie Murai is a GitHubber!

Tal Niv is a GitHubber

GitHub is proud to welcome Tal Niv to its misfit Legal team. Tal is our open sourceress, IP wiz, and all-around agitator.

When not fomenting rebellion at work, Tal plays the harp, teaches intellectual property and cyberlaw, and thinks deep thoughts at 4 am. She is a former IDF lieutenant, start-up veteran, a spectacularly sub-par software engineer, and a Tel-Aviv-ian.

Tal prefers prime single origin Konga beans in her sixteen daily cups of coffee, and thinks that coffee filters are for children (and only very young ones, at that).

Welcome, Tal!

Sim Domingo is a GitHubber!

We're super excited to welcome Sim Domingo to the Enterprise support team. He'll be working from Quezon City in the Philippines and focussing on supporting our customers in the Asia Pacific. He may or may not be making use of his extensive experience writing SMS chat applications.

Sim is a connoisseur of bad low budget movies, and believes that The Vineyard may be one of the "best" movies ever made.
