Meet iSpaces amazing team of talented creators, in their own words!
Product and Business Development Director
As a wearer of many hats, iSpaces provides the perfect opportunity to put my previous experience in operations, sales management, product management and business development to work for the greater good. I’ve worked with all departments that the modern company has to offer: from projecting sales forecasts, to training any customer-facing personnel, to negotiating technology partner reseller contracts, to administering ticketing systems and CRM solutions, to dev planning meetings, to creating, designing and managing an entirely new online portal product (the Arkadin Lounge) for a global telecom company. I thoroughly enjoy the professional and cultural diversity from international technology companies like iSpaces, where creative, social, innovative, independently thinking people with no fear or limits can blossom. This is truly a one-of-a-kind company and I’m happy to be a part of it. Now that iSpaces has simplified my digital life, I have more time for kickboxing, writing, soccer and the constant pursuit to find, or make, the world’s best hot sauce.
Senior Software Engineer
A veteran of the software industry and a pioneer of 3D arcade games at Atari, I’ve spent much of my career working on the bleeding edge of technology in Silicon Valley. I designed Firetalk, one of the first social voice chat sites on the internet and went on to help many startups build scalable, high availability server systems to handle the ever increasing demand of internet applications and services. I’ve been working on cloud services long before the term “cloud” was even coined. Now that iSpaces has simplified my digital life and I find extra time in my day, you’ll find me at the dog park or on the trails with my many rescued dogs.
Simon Lunt UI
Simon Lunt, BDes (Hons) Industrial Design, has worked in the IT sector since 1991 and has designed some of Ireland’s most successful software. In 1993 Simon joined CBT Systems (later Smartforce). As chief product designer Simon had overall responsibility for all user elements across the CBT product suite. Simon designed and produced CBT’s award winning user-control system that required no training. Smartforce grew to become Ireland’s largest software exporter with an ISEQ/Nasdaq market capitalisation of over one billion dollars. In 1996 Simon left CBT to co-found Riverdeep. Riverdeep quickly grew into a premier developer of high-quality educational multimedia. Simon’s role as Head of Product Development spanned all aspects of the business; software design, product design, project management, fulfilment etc. and was the creator of the highly-acclaimed Destination Math system at the heart of the Riverdeep product suite. Riverdeep went for a joint public listing on the ISEQ and NASDAQ stock markets in March 2000 and achieved a market capitalisation high of over two billion dollars. Now that iSpaces has simplified my digital life, I have more time for more productive and fulfilling tasks. I believe that technology should always be subordinate to the task at hand. With iSpaces this is genuinely the case and I no longer have the feeling that “the tail is wagging the dog”.
Erik Hernandez F.
As an Architecture Major, I understand how important it is to have strong and firm foundations and the same is true in building a new technology. Since early childhood I have been working with computers and I remember the first time I started typing words on a computer the size of a storage chest! Since then, not a day in my life has passed without spending time on my treasured computer, surfing the web, posting my various blogs, reading the latest tech news and checking out new technologies. As a true “Cloudie” that has been involved with iSpaces since it’s birth, managing the QA team allows me to make sure that every iSpaces release is the best it can be for you. Now that iSpaces has simplified my digital life, I have more time for inspired design of my next dream project!
An award-winning Marketing Executive with 18 years of experience leading marketing teams and projects across the music products, consumer electronics and financial services industries, I lead concept, strategy and messaging for Wilder2 clients. Fun-loving and cool under pressure, I am passionate about helping communicate a message in all forms of media. I love using iSpaces, because our pitches are always available to show clients anywhere in the world. I am excited to be a part of the team!
Social Marketing & Customer Relations
As the wild only child of the Doherty/Justice family, I round out the iSpaces mix with my passionate lust for life and spontaneous youthful creativity. Having been an actress the majority of my life, I fully understand the saying, “the show must go on!” After moving to Los Angeles to pursue acting and while working a night job, I started two small businesses. The first, making high-end altar candles, and the other an in home catering service, both under the same company name Karmic Kreations. With this knowledge and experience I bring my unique drive and determination to the iSpaces marketing team. Having already been a cloudie for quite some time now, iSpaces gives me more time to enjoy riding horses and playing ball with my “son”, (aka dog), Mr. T Rex Havok.
As founder and principal of FiredUp Communications, I’ve managed communications initiatives for clients in a wide variety of industries including health and beauty, technology, and non-profit. I also enjoy working as a publicist for both fiction and non-fiction authors. I specialize in assembling strong virtual teams to assist my clients in reaching their objectives and my background in marketing, social media, public relations and design helps ensure their success. Balancing a strategic perspective with a gung-ho drive for results, I bring a fiery creative flare to each campaign. Prior to launching FiredUp, I served as the Director of Communications and Marketing for one of Chicago’s largest non-profit educational institutions. A graduate of California State University at Chico with a BA in Public Relations, I am a world traveler and addicted to discovering new cultures and places. Now that iSpaces has simplified my digital life and I find extra time in my day, I enjoy exploring the beautiful mountains surrounding my new home in Denver, Colorado and daydreaming about my next overseas adventure.
There are not too many Professional Hockey Players with a Telecommunications background. From 1996 to 2000, I attended Michigan State University and graduated with a minor in Virtual Reality, Software Development and Web Design. Originally from Toronto, Ontario, I began my travels in 1996 and has since lived wherever hockey has taken me: Atlanta, Los Angeles, Vancouver, St. Louis and now Florida, to name a few. A few years ago, I became an angel investor and have since offered my assistance as a SpaceCreator working in Product Development for iSpaces. In addition to this, I serve as a member of the QA team, which beta tests future iSpace releases. For me, being a part of something that will change the Personal Computer as people know it is very exciting! Now that iSpaces has simplified my digital life, I have more time to enjoy my family.
Graphic and Web Design
A graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, I arrived in Los Angeles in a beat up Oldsmobile to pursue music. Tired of working in restaurants to support my music endeavors and despite the fact that I had never even turned on a computer, I made a bold decision to pursue a career in graphic design — which I fell in love with immediately. After working for various companies in the world of print and web-design, I founded my own company, Jamhouse Design, in 2007. I am continually fascinated by fonts, typography, color and clever designs and am patiently waiting for the opportunity to put these elements together and design a wine label, a career goal I’ve held onto for many years. Now that iSpaces has freed up my time, I plan to focus on my first true love and write a hit song. Just one. Or maybe two…
I grew up in Northern California, in and out of rock bands till I moved to New York to study theater in both New York and Wilkes Barre PA. After leaving the East Coast I began working regularly with a theater and film production team directing short films and eventually a feature about couples in Mexico. Now that I get to work with iSpaces, my office is located wherever I happen to be at the moment. So, I am thrilled to be able work with a service that gives me everything I need, wherever I need it.
