Co-founder of Joomla! and OpenSourceMatters Inc I've never been known to be lacking an opinion or being too afraid to express it.
Despite what some people might think I'm a shy and modest man who doesnt like to blow his own trumpet or boast about achievements.

Chiara Aliotta is the founder and creative director of Until Sunday. She has many years of experience in art direction, brand development, graphic design, illustration and web design and since January 2014 she is brand manager at Joomla.org. Her work is extremely creative, emotionally involving, detail-obsessed, and rich with colorful illustrations that come from her imaginary world. She describes herself as a typography addict and lover of colors. Everyday life is her inspiration and it is reflected in her work and her blog.
When she is not busy designing innovative products for her clients, you can find her waiting for a flight to some sunny destination, swimming in the Aegean Sea, capturing typography in the city with her camera, or spending her free time at home, snuggling with her cat, Kissa.
Chris came across Mambo for the first time in 2003 while looking for a content management system for an intranet project. He began contributing documentation and was soon recruited to join the Documentation Team. He switched to Joomla as soon as the split occurred and was invited to join the Core Team in 2006. He is currently a member of the Production Leadership Team.
Chris got involved in Joomla a few years ago (when 1.5.14 was the flavour of the day). But he stayed with Joomla! ever since, is eager and wants to learn the ropes...

Constance stumbled into the Joomla! world back in 2006 when a client called and wanted to convert a Mambo site into Joomla!. She spent 3 weeks pouring over all the documentation, the forums, reading books, anything Joomla. The road was tough and long but she ended up a dedicated Joomla! afficiando and web designer. No Wordpress for her! This is her first adventure into writing articles for the magazine although there will probably be many opportunities since she also joined the Update Working Group in an altruistic effort to “give back”.
Prior to her discovery of Joomla!, she grew up in the database world of Oracle and IBM, programming in many languages ranging from Cobol to Assembler to Fortran...yep, you guessed it... she's old and should retire soon but decided she loves Joomla and the community too much!

Crystal has been involved in the Joomla community for less than a year, making her quite firmly a Joomla newbie. What she lacks in tenure, however, she makes up for in passion. After attending JWC14 in Cancun, she found herself first on the TM team, and very shortly afterwards involved in the planning of JWC15, as well as some light involvement in other teams.
She is a UX Strategist and Web Designer at Square 2 Marketing. While they are based out of Pennsylvania, Crystal delights in traveling the world and is a self-appointed digital nomad. (If you can work from anywhere with an internet connection, why not work from everywhere?)
