Danny J Cunagin

Co-Founder & Co-CEO

"My mantra is the journey is the juice. Exits are the natural byproduct of loving what we do. We will keep solving the problem until it's done, but not at the expense of goodwill and fun."

Steve has an M.A. in Higher Education, and came from a background working with college students at both Bethel University and Geneva College, but his passion was always dabbling in the IT world. He started his career in IT with Logic Product Development in 2005, and has been working with Danny and Troy ever since. One thing you may not know about Steve is that he did an ‘Around the World’ Trip with his wife 10 years ago, traveling to 23 countries over 10 months
