Jakob is our Adwords and reporting guy, using his skills from a Bachelor of Business to market and digitally manage a variety of businesses. He previously worked in the marketing team at Eastmon Digital Store, in charge of social media management, email-direct marketing, and making canvas prints sound sexy.
One day, Jakob would like to run his own business that has something to do with either saving the planet or eating food. Or both. Failing that, he aims to help musicians market themselves — he himself is a passionate musician in a college band called Lettuce Loose.
Jakob’s hobbies include the Three Gs: Gym, Guitar, and Gmexican food. He has slowly been building his tolerance to hot sauces so he can further enjoy the latter.
Greg is intrinsically connected with and devoted to innovative web standards & UX. With 10 years experience, Greg has worked to lead the charge for seamless online experiences and user interface designs. He often speaks about UI, UX, SASS, HTML5, JS and many other acronyms that we mere mortals cannot possibly understand.
He has a true passion for CSS wrangling making responsive technologies work better for clients and their users.
When not at work, he can be found with his relaxing with his wife and children, camping, reading or playing board games.

In a past life she was a corporate spokesperson for RSPCA Queensland appearing regularly on TV, in print on the radio with some adorable animals – for real, that was a role.
She thoroughly enjoys Battlestar Galactica, popcorn chicken and chasing her three dogs around her yard. Her current goal in life is to smash Jakob at his hot sauce challenge. So say we all.
James is a passionate marketing man and can routinely be found searching for the latest marketing trends in the office. He’s been keen to see businesses grow through marketing since he was a wee one and this led him to chase his dream at uni. Born and bred in the big smoke, James went country after studying at three universities across two countries. With a Bachelor of Business in marketing and international business and a nose for digital campaigns, James is a marketing powerhouse.
When not in the office smashing out Facebook and Google campaigns, you’ll find James deep in the bush on his mountain bike or motorbike. Or trying to convince his Sydney mates to go regional with him.

He also keeps a Rubik’s Cube on his desk to make people think he’s more intelligent than he actually is.
…No, but seriously, he can solve that thing in 18 seconds flat.

There are many different facets to visual marketing, and Kaegyn has dabbled in his fair share! He has five years’ experience in creative agency work, with duties including graphic design, photography, video editing, mobile UI design and branding. He’s now brought that breadth of experience to núcleo, where he can continue to do what he loves.
He describes design and photography as a natural extension of his school years, where he spent far too much time playing with Photoshop and refining his skills. Kaegyn estimates that he has edited over 70k photos throughout his career, and still he remains passionate about his role. He is a stickler for quality who can’t be satisfied until he gets the most out of his projects.
After work, he goes home to his pet monitor lizard, and his snake.

Michael, or ‘Foxy’ as he is more frequently called, is our resident coder, programmer, and animating buff.
When not coding or drawing at his own desk, Foxy is often called upon to offer a second opinion or helping hand with a variety of different tasks. He is a quiet thinker, a great problem solver, and the kind of guy who’ll casually donate a Nintendo 64 to the office.
At the end of each day, he will sometimes leave with such ninja-like precision that we won’t even notice his absence for several minutes.
The big ‘f’ word — ‘finance’. Tarley is our accounts authority who handles all things dollars and cents.
It’s a big job, but someone has to do it, and no one does it better than Tarley. She has a Bachelor of Accounting and is a certified Practicing Accountant, but don’t go picturing any stern, stereotypical money handler; you’ll never see our cash queen without a smile on her face.
When she’s away from the world of finance and figures, Tarley is a country gal with a love of the land and a passion for working with cattle and horses.
