Paul has been using computers since his mom sat him in front of a Commodore 64 with a 'Learn to Program' textbook. He's taught PHP, dabbled in Ruby, written a book, and started WonderProxy. His days are occupied trying to talk about "Strategic Vision" with a straight face and building WonderProxy's team and products.
Will has been fixing computers ever since his family first bought one; breaking things is always the best way to learn! He focuses on maintaining WonderNetwork’s collection of servers and dealing with support in different languages of course! You should ask him why Paul isn’t allowed to buy servers anymore. Will enjoys reading, running, and skiing.
& Office Manager
As awesome as she is modest, Allison manages WonderNetwork’s books, maintains customer relationships, codes, and writes copy. A bonafide Master of Information (University of Toronto, 2013), Allison is an information architecture-obsessed technical writer at MongoDB, and spends her evenings blogging & knitting up a storm.
Gemma is a software engineer, video gamer and recovering classical violinist who has been developing PHP web applications since before PHP5 (and applications in C, .NET and Delphi since before then). She and her husband live with their two dogs in Norway, where they bike around the fjords for fun.
Ellen is a musician, legal scholar, and pinball aficionado. She enjoys organizing and filing things, which makes her a great accounts payable human. When not running her own business and keeping our servers running, Ellen enjoys knitting, pinball, pygmy goats, and cuddling her son Max.
Mari is a librarian with lots of feelings about user experience and service design. She likes taking on new projects to learn new things, whether that means building province-wide library services or annotating Hamilton lyrics on Genius. Mari spends her downtime in Toronto relearning Estonian, teaching her cat new tricks, and playing board games (badly).
Katie is experienced in B2B and B2C sales. Her priority is building strong relationships, understanding consumer needs and offering the correct solution, and sharing the story of WonderProxy. Outside of work, Katie is an athlete and fitness advocate who is a Half-Ironman competitor and enjoys calisthenics and hand-balancing. She also spends time traveling and learning about different cultures.
The Fashionably Helpful
As a growing operation WonderNetwork frequently leans on friends and colleagues for assistance in various ways — if web development was a party, these would be the people who show up early with extra ice and stay late to help with the dishes!
Caroline first ventured into the world of HTML & CSS in the era of dial-up, ICQ and Napster. Since then she's embarked on a mission to expand her coding skillz, while dabbling in UI design, SEO and UX. Outside of work you'll find her cycling around Toronto, sipping cocktails and plotting the new matriarchy.
Fiona is a designer, mostly for screens. She enjoys creating useful things that look good, and has lately been expanding her skills in copywriting. When she isn't in front of a screen she's probably riding her bike too fast, playing with her needy cat, or digging in her garden.
David got his start in technology by disassembling everything around him to understand it better. Today he spends most of his time as a Systems Administrator-turned-Automation Engineer specializing in streamlining IT business processes to free staff to focus on larger scale projects. David lent a hand in during the great HTTP/2 Upgrade of 2019.

Bedrich Rios @bedrich
As talented as he is busy, Bedrich developed the look and feel for the Where’s it Up site (which then grew to be the look for WonderNetwork itself), as well as providing a quick hand on various small projects. Bedrich is kept quite busy being a Fictive Kinsfolk.
Avery James Brooks @averybrooks
As fast a developer as he is skilled, Avery has been instrumental in making the various WonderNetwork pages have a cohesive look and feel, and making Paul and Will look good. When not busy working as a Senior Developer for Radical Media in New York City or doing freelance work, Avery writes and plays music. He has fantastic hair, is surprisingly unfindable on the internets, and shares his name with the actor who played Captain Benjamin Sisko in Star Trek DS9. Check out his awesomely mysterious website at averyjamesbrooks.com, and follow his tweets at @averybrooks.
Andrei Zmievski @a
As efficient as he is wise, Andrei stepped in to help us get Natural Load Testing ready for its Brooklyn Beta launch in October 2011. Andrei lives in San Francisco, where he’s working on a cool new project at AppDynamics and enjoys everything Bay Area has to offer.
