About David

One of my greatest desires in life has always been to team up with like-minded, committed and passionate people to accomplish a goal. Whether in business or coming together on a work project, I enjoy focusing as a team on what needs to be accomplished and then setting out to make it happen. With 30+ years working in a lean manufacturing environment, my career passion has been adapting IT solutions to empower business success. That is why I am so excited about the impacting businesses, freeing them for growth through technology.

About Amanda

As a founder of Open Path, what I enjoy most is understanding my clients. I have always been fascinated with observing people and their interactions with those around them. I strive to dig into who they are, how their business works and how they passionately care about meeting their customer's needs. Then by using colors, textures, very specific wording and visual designs, I create the digital marketing brand, website design, and social media campaigns that convey who they are to the world.

About Brad

I grew up in a family of builders, so I love the challenge of taking an idea and transforming it into something of worth and value.  I've been blessed with a career that's taken me all over the globe working in organizations big and small, spanning sectors from technology to agriculture.  Not surprisingly, I also get bored if I have to solve the same problem over and over again, which is why I enjoy working with all our clients to help them overcome challenges and present the right solutions to their customers.

> I operate my own custom furniture business as a hobby.
> I love teaching my children new things and watching them learn.

Daniel Palmer

About Daniel

After spending several painful weeks designing and developing my first website in college in 1999 on Microsoft FrontPage, I’m thrilled technology has come a long way/ And I’m also grateful I’m better at web design and development as well.

I love problem-solving and working collaboratively to come up with web and digital solutions for Open Path clients. My team handles web development, hosting and ongoing support for Open Path. And because video has become one of the most compelling mediums for marketing, we also work with clients to write and produce stellar video content to add to their arsenal of marketing assets.

Sara

About Sara

With a resume that ranges from event planning to IT, I aim to discover the passion people have for anything that makes them excited to wake up in the morning. I am insatiably curious, knowledge hungry and drawn to marketing due to its ability to create relationships that go beyond a screen. As one of the most brilliant people I know once said: “Being brilliant or strong [isn’t] enough. Things should be chased in search of Aristotelian perfection. To near completeness, one should be erudite, compassionate, exploratory, and active in every way.

Fun Facts

> Puns are my forte
> Love playing soccer
> I watch an overwhelming amount of TedTalks
