What were you doing at nine years old? Well Kenyon Halliwell, our newest web developer, was teaching himself how to code. And if that does not impress you, get this, he jumped in to taking college courses at the age of 14 – studying Technology Forensics at both the University of Advanced Technology and Truckee Meadows Community College. You could say that he knew what he wanted to be when he grew up and decided, why wait?
Above and beyond his impressive college years, Kenyon has held various jobs that helped to sharpen his skills in coding and web development. He was the chief technology officer at the crowdfunding company Move Your Mountain, Inc. honing his skills in technical infrastructure, web application development, and tracking and monitoring analytics and data. He founded and served as president at KH2 Studios, a digital agency with a focus on web development. And was a computer engineer at TnB enterprises.
To round it out, Kenyon is a Black Belt in Danzan Ryu Jujitsu. So watch out – Kenyon can handle anything you throw at him. We are thrilled to have Kenyon on our team and cannot wait to see what amazing websites and apps he will knock out for our clients.

Before I can hit mute fast enough, AC/DC pierces the silence of our working bullpen. My fingers fumble over the keyboard to silence this public disruption. After a few seconds (though it seems like an eternity) I’m finally able to kill the music, and after a brief pause, a few heads turn and a...
Creative Feedback in a Digital Work Environment
A couple years back, KPS3 traded in manila folders and job tickets for Slack and Jira. You remember those folders, right? They had a few aliases — “Job Jacket,” “Job Bag,” “Job Folder,” “Dirty Ol’ Brown Bag.” You’d get a job bag with a work order. Do the work. Print out the work. Put the work in the job folder. Put the job folder on the reviewer’s desk. See that stack start to pile up and sneakily go back...
