We have some new faces in the Havas Discovery office, and we would like to welcome our newest employees Matthew Broome, Dale Case, and Matthew Whittemore. All three newbies have specific areas of interest and talent that will help add to our full service digital agency.
Matthew Broome: Matthew joins the team as a Helpdesk Analyst. Before coming to Havas Discovery he was at the Maryland State Department of Human Resources working as a Network Analyst for their Baltimore City facilities. Prior to his work at DHR, Matthew worked in the private sector for the US Department of Health & Human Services and the US Department of Justice. In his spare time he likes to watch movies, is a big sports fan (Ravens/Orioles/Lakers), loves music, and also coaches youth football for the Baltimore Terps as well.
Dale Case: Dale joins the team as a QA Specialist. Before coming to Havas Discovery he was at Zenimax Online Studios doing QA for their new MMO game. Prior to Zenimax, Dale worked at e4e doing QA both on console and online games for multiple big game companies. On the weekends he works at a bike shop selling and fixing bicycles, and is an avid rider and bike enthusiast. He's a self proclaimed music nerd and enjoys playing his guitar and taking in the local music scene in his free time.
Matthew Whittemore: Matthew joins the team as a Application Developer. He has spent the last two years developing an ERP for a B2C in Atlanta. Before that, he aided a NYC based Education Non-Profit in designing its student tracking system as part of his year of service with AmeriCorps Vista. Outside of programming he pursues creative writing and has been lucky enough to publish a few of his poems.
I'm an early adopter. A gadget guy. And I work in the space, so it's my job at Havas Discovery to not only watch the trends, but to participate in and shape them. So it's natural that I'm a big fan of mobile commerce. The idea that I can roll around and pay for things with my phone is more than intriguing -- I want to do it. The trouble is, there's no clear leader in the space with enough penetration to get over the tipping point. My recent experiences went like this.
Hello Friends. The holidays are a time to celebrate - Havas Discovery style! This year, that means a big gathering at McCormick and Schmick's restaurant in Baltimore this past Wednesday evening. The atmosphere was full of cheer and merriment, good food, dapper attire, and fabulous company. Toasts were made to remembering the year's success, and high hopes for 2013!
On behalf of Havas Discovery, happy holidays everyone!
“YES!!!” I said to myself while thumping the desk. It’s been a long time that the Team has been trying to make one of the area’s “Top Workplaces” lists and we finally did it. Word spread and the Team was pumped.
October is now App-tober—31 days of 31 ‘must-have-apps’—and here at Havas Discovery we are celebrating App-toberfest on the Discovery blog! We will be featuring new apps each day all month long, recommended by the Havas Discovery team members!
We value the reviews and opinions of our fellow co-workers when it comes to the ever-evolving world of mobile applications. Due to the amount of mobile apps swarming the marketplace, and the cross-platform differences between iOS, Android, Windows and other operating systems, we are providing a list of which apps we think are simply awesome. Is it their resourcefulness, design, entertainment, or is it one of the many other reasons why a particular app is listed at the top of the charts? We're going to share our thoughts with you.
The Havas Discovery App-toberfest reviews will include:
- What Is The App?
- What Does The App Do?
- Why Do You Love It?
- How Has It Changed Your Life?
- How Frequently Do You Use The App?
So get pumped, tell your friends and stretch out your texting thumb—App-toberfest 2012 is about to begin...
