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.

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.
For six glorious years, Megan has been the center of office communication and management for Bluetone Media. 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 12 years, she has gained a husband, a house, a 7 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.
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 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).

This Hilton Head Island native graduated with a degree in Pre-Med from the University of South Carolina in 2011.
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.
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.

Robin came to BlueTone with a degree in Business Management and is currently working towards a Master's in Marketing but, all in all, a true love for technology. And, wanting nothing more than to thrive in an environment that has fun making websites come alive. She not only found a passion, but a family that feels the same as herself. She laughs restlessly throughout the day, and found at the end of the day BlueTone is her home away from home.
When she isn't at work, her two beautiful girls keep her busy - whether thru soccer or anything else a 9 and 13 year old could possibly do. Of course, you can't leave out her four legged friends - she has a huge soft spot for animals as well.

Amanda recently joined our development team to help create quality websites. An amateur crocodile tooth collector, Amanda spends her spare time coding sites while meandering down the Cape Fear in an inflatable tube while sipping on garlic mojitos.
She's also the reigning tic-tac-toe champion in the office. Be careful to challenge her title, as she may give you a thumbs-up or a thumb in the eye, just ask eye-patch McGee if you don't believe me.
After travelling to the magnetic north and south poles, Huss decided it was time for a change: enter BlueTone Media. He may try to fool you into thinking he likes soccer, but it's just a cover. His real passion is playing Pokemon GO. There's really no other reason to go to the magnetic poles unless you're looking for the rarest of pocket monsters.
Some of his other passions are taking care of his rhododendrons and doodling famous scenes in movies that feature drawings of some sort in the scene.
