Meet the Team: Chad Kelsey, Project Manager

Chad, our recently-appointed Project Manager, helps rein us in and keep us on task. His quirky personality makes him a joy to talk to and work with whether you’re a client or a co-worker.

How long have you been a part of the team?
Roundabouts a month now.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
I really love figuring out the process. This is to say that the process of building a website, from start to finish, and building a website well, is wickedly complex. One must navigate strange variables. Those variables are like the pieces of a puzzle that keeps changing on you. My favorite part of this job is trying to figure out how all of those pieces fit together.

Chad doesn’t think he’s very photogenic. What do you think?

What are you doing when you’re not in the Lions’ Den?
I love being outside. Typically you can find me fly fishing on a river somewhere or rock climbing. I also love playing out in the farm fields with my dogs.

What industry skills are you currently honing?
I am currently learning how to laser in on project management. There are so many ins and outs of every client that one must know. But, those little idiosyncrasies are what bring personality to a website. I am trying to figure out how to be really awesome at picking up on those things and using them to our (and your) advantage.

What’s your favorite Spotify discovery?
Foreign Fields

Which LL project have you enjoyed most thus far?
Being an outdoorsy person, I really liked working on the Bahnhof Sports project. I created a lot of the slider images on their homepage and it felt so natural; almost like an extension of myself.

Are you a coffee person or a beer person?
Coffee. My poison? Roos Roast – Lobster Butter Love

If you could develop any app, what would it do?
I would create an app that makes backcountry exploration safer. This app would be community-run and send people updates about trails, dangers, weather, etc. about areas to which they are traveling. Also, it would allow you to check into specific areas which would make rescue much easier. Think Google Street View meets the backcountry.
