Our team is Affari

Clients trust us at Affari because we’re more than just co-workers; we’re a family. Our tight-knit team means that we understand how to bring out the best in each other, and we’re not afraid to challenge each other to push the bounds of what’s possible. Our clients have a vision, and it’s our mission to bring their ideas to life in new and creative ways.

Evie Ratti

When you meet Evie, our Creative Director, she’s a lot like her designs, smart, impactful, and effortlessly beautiful. As a mother, Evie loves that she can spend time with her family and tend to her design work seamlessly, both of which bring her joy. No matter the project, Evie leaves our clients feeling inspired by her visual creations. When she’s not leading our design projects, you’ll find Evie in her vegetable garden, or building sandcastles with her little ones along the shores of Chic’s Beach, in the Chesapeake Bay.

Developer

Affari 2019

Developer

Joel Keane

Joel is Affari’s funny man and brings a measured sense of humor to our weekly team calls. He loves all things British, especially watching his favorite London footballers, Tottenham Hotspur. In all seriousness, Joel is the brains behind the front-end development of our client’s websites. We rely on his creative chops and ability to wield HTML, CSS and jQuery into beautiful front-end design. To this end, professional growth is a priority for Joel, so you’ll often find him attending workshops and conferences to sharpen his skills. When he’s not coding, Joel likes exploring new West Coast cities with his wife. You can also find him hitting the Virginia Beach boardwalk with his dog Lychee during warm summer nights.

Digital Marketing Coordinator

Affari 2019

Digital Marketing Coordinator

Mary James Teixeira

Mary believes her work is more than just work, it’s making a difference. As our Digital Marketing Coordinator, she is always in step with the trends, aspires to serve her clients and coworkers, keeps her vibrant personality on 24/7, and always (always) desires to know everyone deeper than just in the working capacity. When she’s not working she’s probably exploring a cool new local spot, getting her nails done (as she believes that is one of her main secrets to success), or spending quality time with her best friends, Andrew (her husband) or Pax (her cute golden retriever).

Lead Software Developer

Scott Barbian

Affari 2019

Lead Software Developer

Scott Barbian

On the team, we refer to Scott as the quiet genius, and we’re not mincing words here. That’s why it's no surprise that his favorite quote is by Albert Einstein, “Everyone knew it was impossible until a fool who didn't know came along and did it.” With 10 years’ experience as a full-stack software developer, Scott loves tackling our client’s most tenuous and formidable problems. He builds powerful solutions to help them sleep better at night. When not behind the computer, Scott volunteers with Big Brothers Big Sisters and the YMCA in his hometown of Missoula, Montana. He enjoys spending time with his kiddos and hitting the local craft beer scene.

Strategic Coordinator

Savanna Rowe

Coming from a Navy family, Savanna grew up in Yokosuka, Japan, which was a pretty cool experience for a kid, one that taught her the importance of having an open heart and an open mind. Following her father’s footsteps, Savanna served in the Navy for eight years before transitioning to her civilian role at Affari. It is an honor to have a Navy veteran on the team! Hooyah! Having always been interested in marketing, Savanna plays an integral role in our day-to-day marketing operations and provides ongoing support to our Managing Partner, Drew, and Operational Director, Daman. When she’s not at work, you can find Savanna spending time with her husband and amazing step-son or hiking with her German Sheppard, Lucy. A world traveler with 15 countries under her belt, Savanna hopes to make it to Iceland next.

Matt plays a critical role in our team by taking web designs and translating them into beautiful websites for our clients. Once launched, Matt ensures that our clients’ sites remain safe and secure, and he also handles any server issues we may run across.

Affari 2019

Designer

Tatiana Armstrong

Tatiana has never considered herself an artist, although her designs suggest otherwise. Instead, she calls herself a visual translator, taking our client’s voices and amplifying them through her graphic design skills. She finds joy in creating websites that make intuitive sense to everyone from Gen Z’ers to her parents, without compromising on authentic, beautiful designs. If you have a quick eye, you may see her flash by you on a bike or skis, trailed by her little black dog in the mountains of Durango, Colorado.

CFO

Kiah Hochstetler

Affari 2019

CFO

Kiah Hochstetler

Kiah is a true renaissance man. He is a third-generation Montanan who grew up on a horse farm and got married to his love, Hanna, in -15-degree weather just outside of Glacier National Park. Kiah wears a beard well, he could save you in an avalanche situation, and prefers whiskey over wine. Having founded two startups (one failed, one merged), Kiah has deep empathy for the challenges facing business owners. At Affari, he provides strategic direction and support to senior leadership in recruitment, business development, and finance.

Managing Partner & Founder

Drew Webb

Affari 2019

Managing Partner & Founder

Drew Webb

Everything begins and ends with Drew. He is the reason why Affari exists. He is the head and the heart of this company and the reason why we get to show up every day and do the work that matters. Which is pretty special. Drew embodies servant leadership by fostering autonomy, providing ongoing support to his team, and ensuring that his employees have everything they need to be successful. Steve Jobs famously said, “It doesn't make sense to hire smart people and tell them what to do; we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do.” Drew is our Jobs. Over the last 10 years, Drew has carefully cultivated a team of creatives, dreamers, hustlers, and strategists that work with brands big and small, making the world a kinder, cooler place. When Drew’s not working, you’ll find him hitting the pavement logging some serious mileage on his early morning runs. He also enjoys playing with his rambunctious pups along the Virginia Beach coastline with his spouse. In short, Drew doesn’t let the grass grow under his feet.
