[09] Who from the WorqSmart Team will be at DevCon?

Audrey Akhavan
Audrey is a FileMaker Developer and is now the FileMaker Products Manager for WorqSmart. “I really love FileMaker and have been building database solutions with it since 1994…starting with version 2.0 on a Macintosh peer-to-peer network! I am a Technical Network member, an At-Large FMPug member and a FileMaker Pro 8 Certified Developer.”

Dedicated to lifetime learning, Audrey has earned an invaluable and rewarding education while operating in a variety of diverse industries. In addition, Audrey can read, speak and write a little Farsi (Persian) and is fairly fluent in Spanish.

In her free time Audrey enjoys cooking, entertaining family and friends, reading, antique and bargain shopping with her sisters and completing home-improvement projects.

Audrey’s thoughts on change:
“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently–they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” – Steve Jobs

Ron Greene
Ron is a FileMaker Developer who came to us a year ago from Baltimore, MD where he was an independent FileMaker Developer for over 12 years. Ron received his undergraduate degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Vermont and his JD from the American University – Washington College of Law. In addition to his talents developing FileMaker solutions, Ron is also a singer specializing in plainchant and Renaissance polyphony. In his free time he enjoys brewing his own beer (which now makes him everyone’s new best friend), cooking and fine cigars.

Ron’s thoughts on change include:
“The significance of the moth is change….. Caterpillar into chrysalis or pupa. From thence into beauty.” – Dr. Hannibal Lecter

“When the winds of change blow hard enough, even the most trivial of things can turn into deadly projectiles.” 😉 -www.despair.com

Marcus Silving
Marcus is our C.E.O. and an expert FileMaker developer. Marcus’ clients range from financial institutions, to educational institutions, to government contractors, to medical educators, to dental supply companies and pet product home delivery. His unique ability to understand complex situations and communicate them in an easy-to-understand manner is a strength, which is highly valued by his clients and the staff. It also explains his diverse client base!

Marcus’ favorite change quote:
“Change your thoughts and you change your world.” – Norman Vincent Peale
