Rebecca’s vision is what drives us forward as a brand and business, and it’s also what makes our projects visually and experientially elegant. Above all else, she’s dedicated to creating the kind of company where people love to work so they can create work that people love. As COO, she tackles our biggest challenges, makes the tough decisions, and keeps us going and growing.

An entrepreneur and executive for the last fourteen years, Rebecca’s past includes working on brands such as Timberland, T.J.Maxx and HomeGoods. “Everyone at Infrared5 works together to create their best work every day,” she says. “It’s the company of our dreams by design.”

CIO + Co-Founder
Senior Software Developer
Director of Media Server Development
Paul leads server development of Red5 Pro, and is the main contributor to the open source Red5 Project. He makes sure all the audio, video and interactive components on a Red5 enabled application function seamlessly. The code he creates and maintains literally powers all our buttons, sliders, directional pads and joysticks. “I make the stuff you don’t see, but it’s the stuff behind everything you do see,” he says. “I’m the guy behind the curtain.” He’s been programming in Java professionally since 1995, but he started coding way back in 1983 when he got his first computer – a Timex Sinclair 1000. He was also part of the team that first put video on cell phones.
Senior Software Developer
Andy was pulled into internet stream programming 14 years ago and has slowly developed his career around solving problems for service providers.

At Infrared5, he is one of the leading consultants for complex networking solutions involving new pathways. Before taking on communications programming full time, Andy was a foreman for condo and light commercial construction, overseeing structural detail implementations.
