Jim Fenner is a graduate of Northwestern University and Columbia University’s Teachers College. He brings with him over a decade of experience working in an extensive variety of fields ranging from education to digital and print publishing to editorial writing to design to higher ed marketing software. Jim’s approach to Digital Strategy at Ashworth is to combine great, creative thinking with tech solutions that make life easy and help businesses grow.
As a Hudson Valley native, Jim is proud to have grown up with the best our area has to offer—chief amongst them a two-decade consecutive streak seeing Tyrone the Terrible win the Potbelly Pig Races at the Dutchess County Fair. In his spare time, Jim shreds his guitar, plays a LOT of hide and seek with his kids, concocts ill-advised schemes for backyard projects, and torments his wife with surprise fish-tank purchases. His work at Ashworth makes him unreasonably happy. Connect with me on LinkedIn.
Graphic Designer & Project Manager
Tracy claims she got into graphic design because she had no desire to be a starving artist. She graduated from SUNY New Paltz with a BFA, concentration in Graphic Design and a couple of years later earned a Web Design Certificate from Boston University’s Center of Digital Imaging Arts in Washington DC. Tracy has an unusual combination of left brain and right brain skills that enable her to create front end designs and execute back end development and coding. She can also draw – she was a Store Artist for Whole Foods Market, and has painted murals in offices and private homes.
As a Senior Designer Tracy specialized in higher education admissions marketing at Spectrum/Liaison and now brings her large suitcase of skills to Ashworth Creative. Besides art, cooking and baking give her great pleasure, and she can justify this through her equal passion for hiking, biking, rock climbing and camping. Tracy’s earliest art related memory was, age 6, winning a Father’s Day coloring contest for J.C. Penney. Her dad still wears the shirt she won from that contest to this day. This proves that Tracy’s father watches his diet AND that you can get to be a successful artist by coloring inside the lines.
Ken Newman started building websites in back in high-school, when GeoCities was still a thing. He loves math and philosophy, politics and video games. He favors Marvel over DC, and Nintendo over Sega. Ken has been building on WordPress since 2008, and has a publicly released plugin available. When he’s not working, he loves spending time with his wife and children.
App Maker Extraordinaire
Kevin Newman brought to Ashworth Creative his 16+ years of problem solving on the bleeding edge of web and mobile application development. From PHP (and LAMP) to Flash, WordPress to Node.js, Meteor.js and React.js, and others along the way, Kevin is never afraid to have and share an opinion and engage with each community and their leaders, or to share his robust experience addressing real client needs. He has delivered dozens of successful sites, microsite, and complete full stack web applications and experiences with an array of different problems to solve. Kevin challenges himself to produce the slickest, smoothest interfaces that run on emergent platforms, robust custom e-commerce solutions, and apps that scale from desktop, to mobile, or which integrate with all the social networks. A karate aficionado, Kevin occasionally leads the web team challenge sessions involving 20 pushups at a time and a certain amount of groaning.
