Travis Talcott

Travis was born into the worlds of business and technology. He got his start configuring networking equipment and performing system administration duties when he was 13 years old, since then he has never stopped learning. From developing products to take to the market with National Labs, to designing complex software, Travis never stops taking on new challenges. Travis enjoys recording music, fishing, and playing with his dogs during his time away from Lyra.

Kai Garrot

Kai first began learning the technologies of the web at the age of 14. He brings an obsessive sense of design and a passion for understanding complex systems. Kai has extensive experience with application frameworks and enjoys building software that is intuitive to use. When he’s not banging his head against a keyboard, Kai can be found somewhere on a trail deep in the mountains of New Mexico.

Matt Fisher

Matt has a Master’s Degree in Linguistics and Web Technology from Philipps-Universität Marburg in Germany. During his studies he focused on full-stack development with PHP, JavaScript, and jQuery, and has since learned various front end JavaScript frameworks. Currently Matt spends most of his time at Lyra, building complex web and mobile applications. In addition to programming, Matt has a passion for languages. He can speak English, Japanese, and German. When he’s not working Matt enjoys traveling, trying new foods, cooking, and playing video games.

Mason Crane

Mason has been designing and developing websites for over seven years. He has worked with many languages and platforms, ranging from static HTML and CSS websites to WordPress, Wix and other CMS platforms. More recently he has focused on full-stack web development and native mobile applications. Mason has also worked heavily with marketing, advertising and search engine optimization. As a result he has obtained many first page Google rankings and launched successful email marketing and Facebook advertising campaigns. He enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, and is always learning.
