Jon Angeles, Troubleshooting
jon@splashpress.com

Not everything always goes to plan for a big network of sites. In fact, there is never a day when it does. Jon, a quantum physician by trade, does more than troubleshoot our daily issues- technical, data management, personal conflicts- he solves them with a razor as sharp as Einstein’s brain.

Jon’ words of wisdom:

You should never ever doubt what nobody is sure about.

Jonathan Bailey, Legal

Jonathan has become a very well known plagiarism fighter in blogosphere over recent years and we are lucky to be able to call on his services to protect our content and make sure that we do not infringe on any copyright laws.

Though I am always glad to teach, I am happier to learn.
