Missy’s true passion is for animal rescue and adoption, and her own beloved tribe of rescue cats and dogs. She loves country life and is still very happily based in small-town Arkansas, where the glare of the city doesn’t block out the stars at night.

Scott is one of Solspace's beloved outside partners. We bring his valuable process to bear on larger strategic explorations and discoveries with those of our clients who need it.
Scott began The Strategic Web in 2015 and was working in strategy advising for more than a decade prior to that. Much of that work was split between his employment as a strategist in leadership positions at a few agencies in the Nashville, TN area. His agency work began focusing on content and UX strategy deliverables. Eventually, his work with clients expanded to include a broader business and innovation strategy offering. He's also spent the past decade acting as an independent advisor on a contract basis prior to founding The Strategic Web.
Scott developed the Strategic Positioning Spectrum as a perspective on the nature of work and strategic progress. Its reasoning is founded in his personal experiences with clients and the wise counsel of colleagues he's worked with over the years. Academically, it relies strongly on the ideas of Daniel Kahneman, Barry Schwartz, Michael E. Porter, Howard Gardner, Kristina Halvorson, Joseph L. Bower and Clayton M. Christensen.
Scott and his wife live in the Nashville, TN area, but he has traveled often to work with clients throughout the country. He's worked with clients overseas too, but hasn't gotten the opportunity to travel to them…yet.
If you ever want him to stop talking about business or strategy, just ask him about his Staffordshire Terrier, Hazel. That’s sure to derail the conversation into an impromptu slideshow of his dog.
David is based in Guatemala City, and when he’s not happily buried in code, he enjoys cycling, kayaking, weight training, gaming, and a nice cold cerveza at the end of the day.
Sean started his own business, DelaneyMethod in 2013 after years as a lead developer. The name came from the joking term “Delaney’s method” that his co-workers used to describe how Sean would effectively tackle and resolve difficult issues. Originally from Tipperary, Ireland, he now lives in Bishopton near Glasgow, Scotland with his wife, two kids, and two dogs. His favourite coffee bean is Brazilian.
Mel finds it surprising that she’s been designing and developing websites for 20 years since she’s very sure she’s only 29 years old. Her strong design background, code writing chops, and passion for customer service have helped her deliver high-impact websites for small businesses, Fortune 500 companies, and everything in between. Mel’s got a special knack for taking her clients’ big complex ideas and breaking them down into actionable steps so she can make them into a reality. She perseveres, pivots, and pirouettes as necessary to get the job done exceptionally well. When she’s not pushing pixels, Mel may be found in her studio happily pushing paint and creating vibrant heavily textured paintings. She is also deeply committed to animal welfare and has fostered and adopted many four-legged friends. Mel lives in North Carolina with her husband, many dogs, and a couple of very confident cats.
