  • Isaac

    Isaac Chapman Master Troubleshooter

    Isaac is a member of the UC Berkeley contingent (Go Bears!) at Solano Labs, and has 20 years experience finding and implementing the right tool for the right job. When not tinkering with various technologies, you might find him reading, practicing yoyo tricks, hiking around the bay area, and occasionally all of those simultaneously.

  • Brian

    Brian Kendzior Founding Engineer

    Brian came to Solano Labs after managing an engineering team at Moovweb, a cloud-based mobile platform startup. He has a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. When not enjoying the tech and music scenes of the Bay Area, you can safely bet he’s getting into some hijinx outdoors (backpacking, sailing, skiing), or bare-knuckle boxing rabid badgers.

  • Matt

    Matthew Albani Engineer

    Originally from southern California, Matt received a BS in Computer Science from the University of California, Riverside. He enjoys a good cup of coffee, whiskey, nerdy activities (i.e. MTG) and sports (Go Pats!)

  • Tom

    Tom Westberg Engineer

    Tom has worked on video game systems, workstations, and various embedded systems but there comes a time to let the physical hardware fall away and embrace the cloud. He has a BSEE from MIT but is still regularly outsmarted by several Border Collies. At least they haven't learned ruby or go.

  • Amanda

    Amanda Price Account Executive

    Amanda has a background in Industrial Engineering, QA and Product Development. Originally from the East Coast, she relocated to the Bay Area to be closer to the skiing and hiking of the West. She is passionate about optimization and working with customers to craft custom solutions to all business needs. You will typically find her with at least 2 dogs in tow, and a cup of coffee.

  • Jorge

    Jorge Villanueva Marketing Associate

    Jorge is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley with a background in marketing, international politics, and finance. In his free time, Jorge enjoys watching sports, especially boxing and soccer, and practicing the sweet science. When he is not smashing his hands against various objects for fun, he uses them to furiously write blogs and tweet.
