Kevin Howard - Kevin practices law in the Sacramento area by day and is enjoying learning about the Art of pizza and the finer points of craft brewing on nights and weekends.

Tom Granberg - Tom is a professional pixel mechanic and a great amateur chef.

Jess Jellings - Jess hangs her hat in Minneapolis and gets paid to watch baseball. While tea is her beverage of choice, she never passes up an opportunity to partake in a local microbrew.
