Josh Clark (Author of Tapworthy @globalmoxie)
Josh Clark is the founder of Global Moxie. Josh is a designer specializing in mobile design strategy and user experience. When he’s not building friendly interfaces, he writes about them. In Josh’s books and blog, he explores humane software, clever design and the creative process. Josh is the author of four books, including Tapworthy: Designing Great iPhone Apps (O’Reilly, 2010), all of which aim to help you harness technology to make your work easier, more beautiful, more awesome.
Josh is a regular speaker at international technology conferences, sharing his insights about mobile strategy and designing for phones, tablets, and other emerging devices.
Before the internet swallowed him up, Josh was a management consultant at Monitor Group in Cambridge, Mass, and before that, a producer of national PBS programs at Boston’s WGBH. He shared his three words of Russian with Mikhail Gorbachev, strolled the ranch with Nancy Reagan, hobnobbed with Rockefellers, and wrote trivia questions for a primetime game show. In 1996, he created the uberpopular “Couch-to-5K” (C25K) running program, which has helped millions of skeptical would-be exercisers take up jogging. (His motto is the same for fitness as it is for software user experience: no pain, no pain.)
Josh holds a B.A. from Harvard College in Cambridge, Mass. He’s headquartered at Studiomates in Brooklyn, NY.

Sara Wachter-Boettcher (Author of Content Everywhere: Strategy and Structure for Future-Ready Content @sara_ann_marie ).
I live in the little colonial city of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where I buck the local Amish tradition by spending my days making, reading, and writing things on the internet.
Before trekking out on my own, I spent a half-dozen years working in agencies – mostly at Off Madison Ave, where I started as a web writer and became the director of interactive content and marketing strategy. Over the years I launched the agency’s content strategy practice, grew the discipline into a core offering, built a department, and joined the senior management team.
Prior to my time in agency-land, I wrote features for magazines and newspapers and developed curricula to educate kids about sexual abuse. The variety’s been nice, but really it’s all the same idea: delivering meaningful, useful information to people who want and need it.
I’m clear-headed, hard-working, and driven equally by perfectionism and realism. I’ve got a big mouth and a busy brain. And I like helping good people make their products and services even better. Want to get specific? Download a resume, or visit my LinkedIn.
