FOUNDER & PARTNER
Mark started Juicyorange in 1995, building websites in the internet stone age. His design and programming skills served him well with word-of-mouth referrals building Juicyorange's client list and portfolio quickly in the early years of the commercial internet. As website technology advanced over the years, Mark spent more time focusing on the creative aspects of the business and carefully grew Juicyorange, LLC as a lean, client-focused boutique agency.
During most of Juicyorange’s growth, Mark — a professional drummer — spent his post college years touring the World and recording with various A-list artists such as Alicia Keys, Tamar-Kali and Jay Sean to name a few. It was during his touring years that he learned to make websites on his then bulky laptop on the tourbus, helping to “pass the time on the road and avoid other temptations.” Now, Mark has three kids, enjoys building things, rides his bicycle a lot and lives with his wife in NY while focusing on Juicyorange.
Juicyorange was named after his first car, a 1974 orange Volvo wagon with 200K miles; it was almost named "Orangeapeel" or "Orangeappeal."
John is a digital media executive with over 15 years experience developing digital media brands and businesses. After graduating from Cornell University, John joined a small software company where he learned HTML and began building websites in 1994. He left to pursue his MBA at the University of Virginia and post MBA landed in New York City working for Nickelodeon Online.
At Nickelodeon he was quickly promoted several times, eventually running all of content operations. John then moved on to sister company MTVI and then to Teen People as Vice President of Product Development. He has also worked for Showtime, Reed Business Information and Conde Nast Digital's Brides.com site where he was part of the senior management team overseeing strategy, product development, project management and operations.
In his various roles, John would outsource projects to skilled design and technology shops and ended up hiring Juicyorange as a vendor. He developed a great relationship with the Juicyorange team and was so confident in their abilities that he decided to join in 2009 as Partner.
Dilshod is our secret weapon - a web developer with a broad experience in all aspects of software development. He spent most of his high school years building computer games such as Mario and Caveman using stone-age programming languages such as Assembler and Basic.
With a degree in Computer Science, Dilshod has worked as a game developer for many years building mobile app games for kids with AR and VR features. Before JO, he developed an online payment system platform, contributed to WebMoney and worked with cryptocurrency. Not only a true computer geek, a great guy as well, for the win.
Dilshod is also a fitness activist and an enthusiastic sci-fi reader.
Jon Marshall Smith, programmer and pilot, started his keyboard-centric lifestyle in recording studios, committing to tape (tape!) acts such as Hot Tuna, Joey Ramone, and The Backstreet Boys.
Brazilian indie-popsters Mosquitos brought him and drummer Mark together in a blue and white Dodge van with Betty Boop and a mysterious amphib known only as The Toad. To finance their vagabond lifestyles, websites were made along the way, and finally, the Gems of Ruby rooted Jon onto a mountainside in western North Carolina, where he surveys the countryside below from his glass walled fortress in the company of his wife and two cats. When not coding, Jon works in his mastering studio on various recording projects only after dismantling and, usually, putting his Subarus back together.

Alexander Mathis is a New York-based self taught developer with an interest in frontend web development. He started his career working freelance with CMS platforms such as Wordpress and Shopify until being hired by JuicyOrange. His long-term aspirations are working on his backend skills, furthering his core computer science understanding, and working on his design skills.
Alexander likes to read philosophy and travel in his free time, especially exploring new cities. He also loves toy dogs (especially the Pomeranian) which he hopes does not bother his Morkie.
Bill is a full stack developer who pivoted from public auditing seeking more creative and technical work. He is fascinated by how things work (like computers and the internet), and he hopes to continue expanding his breadth and depth of knowledge of software development and bring value to any project he is on.
Although he is now a JuicyOrange, his favorite fruits are banana and pineapple.
