Founder and President
Owlaxy really began when Joe was frustrated in his attempts to contribute to the college funds of the children of his friends and of his nieces and nephews.
After graduating from law school, Joe worked as an entry-level political staffer and eventually became a campaign manager during the 2006 campaign cycle. Along the way he helped construct an online political database geared to improving technology and communication.
As a corporate and securities attorney, Joe has advised numerous startup companies on their financing, growth and business strategies. He is a Member of the State Bar of California and holds a Juris Doctorate from the University of Notre Dame as well as a Bachelor of Arts from DePauw University.
Eli’s last name seems to evoke a family lineage of Texas cattle ranchers on the range but he actually grew up in the hardened tropics of Hawaii. Eli has an insatiable hunger for computer nerdy-ness which began in high school and continued through college . He’s the fourth member of our Trojan Rat Pack, earning a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science from USC in 2005. After graduation, Eli worked for a number of years as an ASP and .NET developer, acquiring expert experience with complex database queries. In 2007 he began working extensively with Ruby on Rails.
If you like the look of Owlaxy, you have Katherine to thank. She directs the overall design of the site and is responsible for its appearance and user experience. She’s a stickler for the details and we’re lucky to have her on the team.
As an interactive designer, Katherine has shaped projects ranging from websites to Facebook applications to advertising campaigns. She’s a native of Los Angeles and earned a Bachelor of Arts in both International Relations and Fine Arts from the University of Southern California.
