Founded and located just outside of Portland, Oregon, Fundy Software takes pride in being completely locally sourced. All programming, marketing and support takes place at Fundy Software headquarters, just down the road from sports giant Nike and tech giant Intel. Founded in 2008 with the notion that creative professionals needed a template-free design solution, it’s patented Drop Zone® technology brings intuitive design to passionate photographers. A company that believes in people, you won’t find any overseas call centers or programmers, just local people as passionate as you.
Andrew “Fundy” Funderburg – photography expert and industry visionary – has a passion for people, capturing emotions and telling their stories through print. He is the creator of the Fundy Design Suite software platform and the founder of Fundy Software.
The Fundy Suite has transformed countless photography businesses and facilitated the production of millions of photo stories worldwide. The software design tools are simple and efficient for the busy photographer looking to capture the emotions of the moment and lay out the story of their clients with albums and wall art. Fundy continues to lead innovation and personally inspire photographers worldwide with his stories and a common sense approach to photo layout and the art of storytelling.
Fundy speaks four languages, holds a BA degree in English Literature from the University of Oregon, was a former Peace Corps volunteer in the Republic of Moldova, an Iron Chef Photographer in Japan, and has traveled the outer reaches of the planet preaching about the power for printed photography.
Jonathan Min-Wook Main, CEO of Fundy Software, oversees the corporate and administrative operations. As partners, Jonathan and Andrew work together for growth planning, marketing initiatives, and strategic implementation.
Having studied in the U.S., England, and Asia Far East, Jonathan is a successful entrepreneur, investor, and strategist; restructuring and scaling organizations for over 25 years in over 40 countries. At his core, he is a builder, striving to shape lucrative enterprises, robust systems, and most importantly to him, empowering and motivating the next generation of business leaders.
He has three children, is an avid golf and tennis player, and lives for adrenaline-pumping extreme sports. He also loves a good mani/pedi, but admits that most of the appeal is to freak out his twin teenaged daughters.
Jonathan lives by the mottos: “Go big or go home; You can sleep when you die; and If you can dream it, you can build it.” And while Jonathan takes his work very seriously, he is never afraid to laugh at himself. He often tells the story of a day-long overseas negotiation meeting, where he was interacting with all levels of a major company, from top executives to every staffing tier. Discussions were exceptional, but he was unsure why people kept staring at his forehead and not his eyes during introductions. He finally glanced in a mirror and realized that a large tuft of hair was standing straight up. Horrified, he realized that he had spent the whole day looking exactly like Alfalfa in Little Rascals. Lesson learned: things happen, and laughing at yourself will always help you get through it.
Kate Kauffman is Director of Marketing for Fundy Software. In addition to her traditional marketing and PR efforts, she helps to lead up the strategic direction of the company with the founder and CEO. Kate joined the Fundy team after seven years in the advertising agency world, and her parents met in a college photography program, so an appreciation for beautiful photos runs in her blood.
Kate spends most of her non-work time snuggling her French bulldog, Mack O’Roni, and dreaming of her favorite place, Mount Desert Island, Maine. An Oregon native, she also enjoys traveling the Pacific Northwest with her hubby—although Kate admits her favorite pleasure trifecta is watching trash TV while cooking with a glass of wine in hand. She also has an unhealthy love of horizontal stripes, but she’s seeking professional help for that.
Priscilla Howell is a very complex person who is still evolving… but currently, the Director of Communications for Fundy Software. Originally from Crawfordville, FL, Priscilla is a graduate of Wesleyan College (the very first college in the world to grant degrees to women). She translates her affection for singing, acting, and reading into her ability to communicate the awesomeness that is Fundy.
Priscilla is dedicated to all things that allow her to be creative, including being very involved in local theater, even serving on the board of directors for Beaverton Civic Theatre. She is a karaoke queen and if she can’t think of anything to say, she can be counted on to randomly burst into song. Priscilla is known to have strong convictions and believe that an idea worth having is an idea worth considering. When she is not at work, she can be found hiking, running, or dancing around her living room.
Jasmine Rutherford is the lead graphic designer at Fundy Software. She excels at making everything Fundy-related look good, from the print ads in magazines to the website and User Interface of the software. She values simplicity and craves creativity.
Born in Australia, Jasmine spent her childhood moving around the world from Sydney to Oregon to Amsterdam. She finally landed in Oregon where she attended Oregon State University and received a major in Graphic Design with a minor in Fine Art. Her interests include spending time with her hubby Kyle and Border Collie Fly. She loves to go hiking, fishing, camping, and shooting—all while nurturing an unhealthy obsession with flowers.
Alli Scott is the Marketing Assistant at Fundy, making her the chief coordinator and analyst of the social media presence. Alli is constantly reading up on the latest trends on the interwebs to ensure the company stays on the cutting edge within the social sphere.
At Gonzaga University, Alli focused on playing soccer and studying Spanish and Sociology. A Portland girl at heart, she recently obtained her Master’s degree in Business Communication and Marketing from the University of Portland. Before returning to Oregon, Alli spent time in Spain where she taught English in a small beach town on the southern coast.
Alli is so excited to be back working in the city she loves. She adores Portland’s culture as well as the outdoors. Not only an outdoor-loving, social media ninja, Alli considers herself a connoisseur of happy hour, with a concentration in cheese plates and wine.
As a Software Engineer at Fundy Software, Jonathan Stickles has worked on all modules of both the v6 and v7 versions of the Designer suite, including the underlying Drop Zone and Auto Design technology. Jonathan is a former independent game developer who earned a Bachelor of Science in Game Design from DigiPen Institute of Technology. He satisfies his continuing love for video games by playing and creating them in his spare time and regularly guides his friends through dangers, perils, beholders, and mind flayers as Dungeon Master of their weekly Dungeons and Dragons group.
Bill Campbell is a developer with Fundy Software. He brings 10+ years of software development experience to the team environment, although he still laments there are days that he would have rather been a poet. As a hobby artist and photographer, Bill enjoys creating meaningful tools for other creative businesses.
The most important thing to Bill is his addiction to learning new things. His recent accomplishments include learning to swim, ride a motorcycle, and make the perfect omelet. In progress, he is studying the Chinese language and elements of biology, along with a perpetual education in photography, graphic design, and animation. In his spare time, he enjoys all forms of science fiction: books, movies, and TV series.
As member of the Fundy Support team, Alex Parker has a daily goal to drink more water and provide support to as many users as possible. A graduate of the University of Oregon, Alex spent 10 years selling chocolate at See’s Candies around Portland. A recovering world traveler, with four continents and counting under her belt, she lives by the motto: “Life is short, don’t feel guilty!” This quote helped her during an unfortunate jellyfish encounter in Italy, which ended the same way it did on Friends. Fortunately, Alex snorts while she laughs, which helps to aid her in keeping her positive view on the world.
