Raised in the chilly hills of the North Carolina mountains, Jimmy longed for days of warmer weather. So he took his computer skills, moved east, and created BlueTone Media. Though he now spends most of his days behind the comfort of his computer monitor, the warm glow of pixels bouncing off his pale skin, there's a fire inside of him that heats him, drives him. He strives to lead a team that creates intriguing websites, stays on the cutting edge of technology, and offers fanatic customer support. And while he possesses talents that no other mortals seem to have, it remains that Jimmy is just a man. Husband, father, son-- he is all of these things. Though here at BlueTone, he is our leader, our captain, our friend.
Brad GrahamDirector of Client Relations / Creative Director
Around here, we call Brad "Hat Rack" because he wears a lot of hats in the office. Actually, that's not true, no one calls him that. But it is true that Brad tries to be well-rounded to help wherever he can. He has HTML and CSS skills, is efficient with several different design and development programs, and loves talking with BlueTone clients about getting the most out of their websites. And while he may not don a clever moniker, we do usually refer to him as a good dude.
Megan TarbleOffice Manager
For four glorious years, Megan has been the center of office communication and management for Bluetone Media. If you call us, it's most likely her beautiful voice you'll first hear on the other end. With her associates degree in Business Management, Megan has complete financial control of our company-- not saying she's controlling, but definitely not saying she isn't.
But don't let her sweet voice fool you-- she can be rather feisty on the racquetball court! The youngest of four sisters from Long Island, NY, Megan came to grace Western North Carolina at the age of 6. As a Wilmington resident for 10 years, she has gained a husband, a house, a 5 year old son and a headache. During her free time, if any, Megan often paints or spends quality time with her family, all while still finding a way to dedicate time to her borderline obsession with cheese.
Dominique DixonWeb / Mobile Application Developer
A Wilmington native, Dom attended North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University to pursue a Computer Science degree in 2001. He joined the BlueTone Media team in May of 2009 as a programmer. This father of two enjoys intense workouts, programming, the joys of parenthood and playing linebacker (you might know him as Wildcat #19 of the Wilmington Tigers). And through all this, Dom continues to expand on his skills developing applications for Web, Android, and iOS.
Alan EversonWeb / Graphic Designer
After graduating with a Bachelors of Art in Graphic Design from the University of Akron in Ohio, Alan immediately began testing his design abilities working with prestigious clients like Goodyear, Firestone, and the University of Akron. With a few years of design experience in the world of print advertising and production, Alan decided to pack-up and relocate to an area with a lot more sand and a lot less snow!
Now a Wilmington resident and member of BlueTone Media since 2009, he has become our Lead Designer with a few hundred website designs under his belt, and strives to make each design look better than the last. Also while in Wilmington, he has managed to create and grow his own clothing company, has been learning to surf, and has collected way too many shark's teeth (but still gets excited every time he finds one, just like it were the first one he saw).
Scott ClementsProject Manager
Now this is the story all about how
My life got flipped, turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute, just let me try and tell ya
How I became the Fantasy Football Champ of Bluetone Media
In central Colorado, born but not raised,
In the mountains was where I spent most of my days.
Chilling out, stretchin out, relaxin all cool
Throwin some footballs outside of school
When a couple of guys that were up to no good
Started making trouble in my neighborhood.
I got in one little fight and my momma said
"You're movin out to develop sites for Jimmy & Brad!"
I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said "Champ" with a football in the mirror
If anything I could just walk away with my headphones
But I thought nah, forget it, yo homes to Bluetone!
I pulled up to Murchison about seven or eight
And I yelled to the cabby "Yo, homes smell you later!"
Looked at my kingdom, I was so amped
To sit on my throne as BTM's Fantasy Football Champ.

Daniel WestcottWeb Developer / Designer
Born in Orange County, New York, Daniel can be found either wandering the streets of NYC with a Sabrett's hot dog in-hand or hanging out on the beach in sunny Wilmington, NC.

Daniel enjoys almost any outdoor activity, loves NY Pizza and his Giants.
Logan WilliamsWebmaster / SEO Specialist
Born in the beautiful "Valley of Longevity" Vilcabamba, Ecuador, Logan Williams learned the best of pickup lines from "You have the most beautiful third eye", to "How about an antennae rub?" While these talents didn't take him far, it got him to Chihuahua, Mexico, where he got wrapped up in crimes (theft and graffiti) and parties. After years of this hard life, Logan knew he had to change to become a better man, so he packed his used Hannah Montana backpack with a ham sandwich, two bananas, a can of vienna sausage and the July 2007 issue of Teen Magazine and wound up joining Kueva, a Guns N Roses cover band. Logan had fun for a few years, which felt like a blur of (birthday) parties, (root) beer and (male) groupies. Logan eventually got tired of all the craziness and decided to settle down. After months of searching, Logan found Wilmington, NC and decided to settle down there. After two weeks, Logan ran through his fortunes made through his Kueva days (33 USD) and needed a job. While searching Wilmingtonyardsales.com Logan found a man named Jimmy, who gave him the opportunity of a lifetime, with a job at BlueTone Media, and he has been working there ever since.
Michelle LeMastersWeb / Graphic Designer
With her Bachelors degree in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Charlotte, Michelle is our most recently acquired Graphic Artist here at Bluetone Media. While most of her skills lay in logo and print design, her never-ending desire to learn is what lead her to try a hand at web design by joining our team (as well as some serious insisting that she'd be 'perfect for the job' from our Webmaster/SEO Specialist, Logan).
This artist's hobbies range from biking aimlessly to creating and falling in love with film, whether it be movies or photography. Often in her spare time, she builds various Lego Star Wars ships with the coolest kid on the block: a five year old boy named Jack that shares her nose, wide range of facial expressions and stubborn nature.
