Subscribing to principles of servant leadership, Matt is the first to refill printer paper and coffee mugs. He loves helping co-workers, clients, and random people at Panera meet their full potential. With glass always half-full, he practices a philosophy of enriching every life he touches.
Beginning his career in education, Matt taught Health and Physical Education while earning his Master’s Degree from East Carolina University. Moving into business, he served as Vice President of an internet based agency helping it achieve two-time Inc. 500 status. His belief in social media, SEO, PPC, and technology in general, as a means to grow business, has been a driving force throughout his career. Growing companies wisely and profitably through development of sound internet marketing strategy combined with keeping interactions personal (e.g. why email when you can call) is what makes Matt an exceptional leader.
Matt has been happily married to his wife, Lisa, for 12 years, and they have two daughters, Elisabeth and Alayna. An avid sports fan, Matt bleeds University of Michigan Maize and Blue.

When Tammy isn’t working on payroll or other accounting tasks, she is working on internal processes, benefit packages and team-building events. Tammy has spent the majority of her career as part of small business and financial management teams and feels these experiences have enabled her to foster an environment at Web Talent that each employee was drawn to from our first interview. She believes that people are the heart of any business, and no business can be run without them.
In her spare time, Tammy creates recipes for her family to enjoy, and says that baking is like therapy. She also enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons up at the family’s cabin in Northern, PA along with their great dane, Samson, and their “sassy” black cat, Fiona.

Originally from Arkansas, Brent relocated to the East Coast upon graduation where he met his lovely wife, Erika. He now has two daughters, two sons, and hopes to have more! Brent’s golden retriever, Mabel, keeps him busy between walks and, what seems to be, the never-ending pursuit of obedience.
Proficient in many of the latest web design techniques, this York PA native and Art Institute grad brings his “A” game every day and continues to expand his skillset in design and programming.
When he’s not single-handedly rewriting the web design landscape as Brent’s right-hand man, Kevin likes to break out the ol’ 9 iron for a round of golf, watch the 49’ers win, or fire up some tasty delights on the grill. Kevin is a family guy and loves hanging out with his girlfriend Ashley and her daughter A’mya. He’s looking forward to the day where he can get a couple of big dogs – or snag a vacation back to Jamaica – whatever comes first.
Director of Search Marketing
When Lorianna joined the team in September, she brought with her years of experience, training and certification. She is trained through and certified with the International Webmasters Association and has worked both the agency and in-house side of the business.
To call Lorianna detail-oriented is an understatement. She lives for the small details, the minutia. And that quality contributes to what makes her so good at what she does. She also stays apprised of current happenings in the social media and marketing world through professional LinkedIn groups.
Lorianna also happens to be very good at other things like cooking, singing and mothering her young son, Daniel. Cooking and singing are her stress relievers which is why she can often be found in the kitchen trying new recipes or wowing the crowds of Lancaster’s finest karaoke establishments.
Senior Search Marketing Specialist
Described as ‘One of the Smiliest People on Earth,’ Matt’s smile is driven from a love of all things SEO, marketing and a desire to learn new things. A Lancaster County local and a product of small business, Matt loves getting to research and learn about how to make a company rock hard, and finding that Golden Ticket to make a business take off in the Internet space.
When he’s not SEOing, Matt’s fierce competitive spirit makes itself known on the softball diamond, or while playing Ultimate. His interests also include being a baseball Superfan (Phils & Nats in the NL, Rays in the AL), smallmouth and trout fishing in the Susquehanna and surrounding waters, all-weather grilling on his Big Green Egg, running, reading, writing, psychology and reptiles.

Ray attends various Google seminars and search marketing training events and is a frequent contributor to our blog as well as training events. As a tech-savvy individual, Ray truly enjoys the work he does everyday – not to mention the laid back work environment.
If Ray is not slaving away at his computer to keep Web Talents clients ahead of their competition on search engines, you would probably find him at a poker table in Atlantic City or even Vegas—his logistical mind and cool-tempered demeanor contribute to his fortune at the poker table.
Without a wide array of music and a solid workout, Ray would be a lost soul. The rest of us at Web Talent know Ray best for his witty sense of humor and classic v-neck t-shirts and lumberjack-like flannels.
