Jimmy HonsingerCEO, Founder
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.
Alan EversonArt Director
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).

Peter DemariaWeb Developer / Designer
Born in Long Beach, California Peter has lived up and down the West coast in both the US and Canada, in the Midwest, and now lives on the Carolina Coast with his wife and their cat Taco. He graduated with a BA in Studio Art & Design and a Minor in French Language Studies (which may or may not ever come in handy, zut alors!) from the University of Missouri in Kansas City.
Peter enjoys burritos and long walks on the beach with his wife and friends, and is finally learning to surf after all those years of just slamming on concrete with his planche a roullettes.
Daniel WestcottWeb Developer / Designer
Daniel joined BlueTone Media in the Fall of 2012. Upon graduating UNC Wilmington with a Bachelors in Marketing, he went to work for Pinehurst Resort in his hometown of Pinehurst, NC, where he played more golf than a retired vet. Daniel found his calling as a graphic artist by desiging logos for local companies in his spare time and quickly learned he needed to go back to school to pursue a career he enjoyed.
Two years later, Daniel skipped his graduating ceromony and headed back towards Wilmington to scout potential employers. By the end of summer he was taking his hot sauce initiation at BlueTone and was gaining credability for his nerf gun accuracy skills. He now has over 100 websites under his belt and is still counting.
Daniel is from Orange County, NY and loves his roadtrips up North to see family and friends.
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.
Andrew Foster is a Webmaster and is one of BlueTone's fresh catches. As a Webmaster, Andrew loves interacting with clients to meet all their web needs. Andrew is an alumnus of UNCW, and when he isn't busy strengthening relationships with existing clients, you'll probably find him doing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/Submission Grappling at Evolution MMA on Wrightsville Beach. He also loves animals (especially pit bulls), is an avid fan of 90's hip-hop & classic rock, and has a wonderful girlfriend named Sarah.
Maxim KozhevnikovWeb Developer / Designer
Maxim Kozhevnikov was born in a different part of the world – Asia, in the country called Kazakhstan, where the winter is considered mild if the temperature doesn't drop below - 25ºC (-13ºF). In his childhood, Maxim liked cross country skiing and fishing with his dad in summer and winter. Later in life, Information Technology became his biggest interest. Now Maxim is a Web Developer at BlueTone Media. He enjoys spending his spare time with his wife and son whether they're playing tennis, walking the beach or putting together giant puzzles.
Sarah GirodProject Manager Assistant
Born in Fairbanks Alaska and raised by wild cats, Sarah learned to purr and swat anything that flys. Then one day a ball of yarn caught her eye and she ended up chasing it to the warm climate of Arizona where she enjoyed cactus pie and practicing the tuck and roll with sagebrush blowing in the wind. One too many tuck and rolls later she ended up in North Carolina where she fell in love with mashed potatoes and gravy and knew this would be home. Bluetone Media was in need of someone with eyes sharp as a cat to be in charge of website quality control and Sarah is the purrrr-fect fit!
Jacob HarrisWeb Developer
A North Carolina native, Jacob is a fresh graduate of UNC Wilmington with a BS in Environmental Science. He decided that trudging through swamps for a living was for chumps though, and landed at Bluetone Media as a Web Developer.. He’s still not sure how that happened, but he couldn't be more pleased. When he isn’t busy studying or coding, Jacob loves to spend his time biking, cooking, and gaming.
Doug SocieNew Business Development
This Hilton Head Island native graduated with a degree in Pre-Med from the University of South Carolina in 2011. Being quite new to the area, Doug is the most recent addition to our Sales Team at BlueTone Media. Claims of being able to "sell raid to a bug" and "salt to a snowman" may have been what proved he was right for the job.
During whatever spare time he has outside of obsessing over watches, he often likes to come to work and then continue his watch obsession from his desk. As far as favorite beer is concerned, Doug could care less-- so long as it's beer. Or Bell's Two Hearted Ale. Either way, he's a beer enthusiast at heart.
Klinton HenryWeb Developer
A long-time lover of movies, video games and other extremely nerdy things, Klinton often spends his spare time practicing how to introduce himself as “Klinton with a K” in front of various mirrors. Happily married to his high school crush, Klinton and his wife Sarah often dote upon their adorable animal children in the evenings by the fireplace. Among them is a Yorkshire Terrier named Winston and a 20lb cat named Stewart, of which Klinton heroically rescued as a kitten from a sinister cardboard box in front of PetSmart. Okay, it wasn’t sinister. And it was a crate. A nice, clean crate. Okay, he adopted Stewart.
With a BS in Physics from ECU, Klinton has worked a number of jobs during his education from pizza flinging to hardware installation. With a peak interest to return to his hometown after college, our available position for Web Developer caught his keen eye, so he fled south with his beard-trimmer in tow. Soon Klinton was voted onto the island with our team of developers and was building websites and modifying Nerf guns in no time.
