Senior Software Architect
Derek enjoys reading, robots, reading about robots, and robots that read. He joined eBook Architects in 2013 after nearly a decade in the Bible software industry. When not fine-tuning the code that helps make eBook Architects books sizzle, you’ll find him hanging out with his wife and kids. Probably reading to them about robots.
As the former Consigliere for the River of Blood Corporation, and a retired bounty-hunter for 28, the dangerous business of project management at eBook Architects suits Nick perfectly. He uses only Dell keyboards, Logitech pointing devices, Shure buds and Sennheiser cans while he works. When he’s not giving potential clients an offer they can’t refuse, you might find him running sound at a wedding, watching “Dancing with the Stars” with his daughter, or avoiding State Troopers on HWY-290. He lives in Houston with his bride, daughter, sons, dog, 3 cats, and a steady supply of energy drinks.
Please contact Nick if you have questions about pricing, would like to get a quote, or would like to get your project in the queue.
Quality Assurance and Revisions
Erin is a certified elementary and middle school teacher currently working in the far less dangerous world of eBooks. She spends her out of office time with her husband (a thirteen-year-old trapped in a thirty-something’s body) and her daughter (a thirteen-year-old trapped in a preschooler’s body). She spends her free time (HA!) reading, attempting to stay in shape, and doing the same thing she does every night – trying to take over the world! When in the office, she uses her powers for good to nag the highly-trained developers about pixel counts, serif fonts, and corny office jokes and assure eBooks of the highest caliber continue to find their way through the interwebs.
Of the two greatest events of 1984, the release of Ghostbusters and the birth of Matt, only one has garnered critical acclaim and inspired generations to come. The other starred Bill Murray. Despite being burdened with what many could often say are too many “God-given gifts,” most don’t say it often enough. In fact, Matt’s modesty is only eclipsed by his vanity and success. Many epics were written about his life in his hometown of Houston, but they were all destroyed by the humidity. Website bios have scrambled to pick up the loss. In the year 2011, a divine wind deposited Matt in Austin. Here he set up the darkest Graphic Design and eBook Development work space possible inside the heart of a volcano at eBook Architects.
Philip started his adventure as an eBook developer in 2012 by route of a combined interest in books, design, and development. When he isn’t creating eBooks as quickly and efficiently as he can, his time is spent creating works of art in the form of paintings and electronic music, cruising around town on his bike, and catching up on literature he missed out on. Much like the world of art, constant advances in technology give eBook development an exciting new challenge every day, making it a fitting place for a maker.
Genius. Visionary. Forward-thinker. These are all words. Graphic Designer. Tall. Snappy Dresser. These are words too. Which words can be applied to Joe? You decide. Who writes sentences like this? We’d rather not say.
Israel J. Carberry
Israel began his career at eBook Architects by lurking behind the curtains for some undisclosed amount of time, developing some of the back-end systems and internal software, using mainly spoons. In the middle of one of his bigger projects and also one of those really great sneezes that make you feel tingly all over, Israel decided to stop faking it and become a real live employee. He also changed hats. When not muttering darkly to the code on his screen, Israel enjoys spending time with his two boys (who are cooler than he is), baking bread, making tie-dye shirts, pretending to work on his novel, and occasionally drawing little happy check marks on his wife’s to-do list.
