The Fifth Element
Herb Collingridge has been with Wildland from the start. He enjoys designing, rocking branding, web development, and print and product design. Prior to Wildland, Herb was “footloose and fancy free-lancing” for several Fortune 1000, 500, and 250 clients for more than 10 years. He plays well with others, revels in nurturing one-on-one relationships, and likes to foster the talent in others. When not busy crafting a brand or gulping coffee, you can find Herb on a river (and other, secret fishing holes) fly fishing with his wife, brother, and Dad or playing video games. He also enjoys photography, sci-fi shows/movies, and snowboarding.
Joe is a Senior Developer at Wildland and has been developing software professionally for over 10 years; everything from large web-based applications to tiny embedded applications. Joe started building awesome things for Wildland in 2015 as one of the original team members. Although Joe holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science, he and his wife frequently find themselves camping in the beautiful wilderness that Washington State offers.
Isaac joined Wildland as a Senior Developer after working for over 10 years in web technologies across multiple industries. Isaac has led teams implementing robust, modern technology platforms for organizations, helping translate web innovations into pragmatic business decisions. A farm boy at heart, he loves building technology for the agricultural industry. Isaac enjoys literature, outdoorsman-ship, philosophy, and messing about in boats. He lives in Richland with his wife Sarah.
Kevin is a zany software developer birthed from the hop fields of Moxee, Washington. After earning a Computer Science degree from Central Washington University he moved to Richland to begin his career. Although relatively new to the Tri-Cities, this fine lad is an avid member of the local co-working community. In his off time he can be found working on personal projects or playing Pokemon Go.
Nestor is a Tri-City native with a B.S. in Operations Management and Information Systems from the University of Idaho. He joined Wildland at the start of 2018 and brings 5 years of Project Management experience with him. Nestor left the Tri-Cities in 2008 and found himself reeled back in 2017 by the opportunity to build a small self-sustaining farm. He spends most of his off time raising chickens, playing video games, or spending time with his wife and their two dogs Turtle and Paisley.
The Piano Man
Matt is Wildland’s Business Development Director. Joining our team in December of 2017, Matt brings with him a passion for building relationships, and serving others. A Portland, OR transplant, Matt enjoys playing/recording music, spending time exploring the great outdoors with his wife, and playing with his dog “Olive”.
The Miracle Designer
Jessica grew up in Tri-Cities, left for college (Central Grad) and decided to stay in the dry heat of the Eastside of Washington State. She started as an intern with Brandcraft in 2015. Jessica is the go-to Swiss Army Knife of design. We throw everything at her – code, vectors, Content Management Systems (CMS) – and… she can illustrate. At home you’ll find her gaming, drawing and Netflixing.
Osito, The Bear
Originally from SoCal, Oso moved to the Tri-Cities where he joined the Wildland/BrandCraft creative team in September of 2017. He has print-shop experience with interests in typography and illustrations. Outside the office, Oso can be found ballin’ at the gym, streaming Netflix, and competitively gaming Halo online. Catch him on Xbox Live @Burrtality.
Dee is our resident social butterfly and communications guru. A Tri-Cities native, she combines diverse expertise and a natural instinct to create authentic brand messaging on digital platforms with passion and enthusiasm. When she isn’t oozing joy around the office and giving our client’s digital and social strategy the utmost care and attention, she’s a busy gal. Dee is on a team that organizes a local TEDx conference, holds an appointment with the City of Kennewick as an Arts Commissioner, and gives her time to a list of other Tri-Cities organizations.
With a background in graphic design, Alissa is able to bridge the essential gap between creativity and organization on our design team. She is an inquisitive person who is continually searching for growth opportunities in the office and community and appreciates the diversity of her work.
As our resident “Scandihoovian,” Alissa deeply appreciates coffee, holiday festivities, and pickled foods. After hours you can catch her around Richland sipping a cappuccino, listening to podcasts, and scouting period furniture for her alphabet home.
