It all started with John Housholder: part entrepreneur, part code nerd. A Memphis guy who has traveled the world, John founded Ah So Designs after living in Austria and then helping grow the account set of two of the fastest INC 500 Companies at Dell. He was an associate web professor at The Art Institute of Tennessee during the first three years of growing Ah So.
A strategic thinker who’ll give it to you straight – John has three great loves: Garth Brooks, the web and his dog, Dunn. He was married in July of 2014, to a beautiful Rebel from the University of Mississippi. Allison is now his great love, but don’t worry Dunn, you can still sleep inside. He has a master’s in Instructional Technology from University of Tennessee, Knoxville, helps run the Nashville WordPress Meetup and Nashville WordCamp, sits on the SEYA board of directors, volunteers as a mentor at the Entrepreneur Center and is on the Young Life Nashville committee.
Brett came to Ah So Designs in 2014 during a brief stint as a freelance WordPress website developer. He’s been building awesome WordPress websites, WordPress themes, and plugins since 2008 and lives in the matrix. Brett graduated from APSU in 2008 with an M.F.A. in Graphic Design so he knows how to make those sites pretty too.
Outside of Ah So, Brett is heavily involved with the Nashville WordPress community and helps plan the yearly WordCamp Nashville event. He also plays guitar, attempts to play the drums, and loves spending time at home with his wife, Sarah, and their 3 dogs: Lyla – a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Ellie – an English Bulldog, and Molly – a Greyhound, Pitbull, Lab, who-knows-what-else mix.
Noe has been with Ah So since 2013. He has a passion for building great sites for Ah So. Noe graduated from the Art Institutes of Tennessee with a degree in Graphic and Web Design.
Outside of Ah So, Noe enjoys playing the violin, baking cakes, and running long distance. Prior to becoming a coder, Noe served 8 years in the U.S. Marines as a supply chief and fiscal chief.
Designing and developing commercial WordPress themes since 2010, Andy Wilkerson learned firsthand what it takes to make a successful website. Using that experience the Runway framework was created to solve common problems associated with WordPress theme building. The flexible structure give unlimited design control while the modular architecture allows for quick development and easy maintenance. Runway is designed to work for you rather than forcing you to work a certain way.
Jake joined the Ah So Designs ninjas as an account manager in 2014 after spending two years working as an operations director for a non-profit in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Jake is a utility man whose daily activities range from managing the squirrels to spreadsheets to writing css to teaching clients how to use their new sites.

Outside of Ah So, Jake has a passion for international travel.
