    Gretchen Smith, Unique Artist and Missionary

    in Writing

    For 20 years Artist and Missionary Gretchen Smith has been involved in community development and transformation projects in Africa, the Middle East, Central America, the US and Baja Mexico where she recently started a project called ARThouse Rosarito where she hosts critical thinkers and does outreach through garden and art projects.


    As Smith states, “Basically my job is to piss people off and I am very very good at it”. She fondly refers to herself as the “worst missionary ever.” Smith speaks at international conferences, blogs and publishes articles in which she is extremely critical of existing systems within the church and social change agencies . . ."


    New York Critic Ed Rubin states this about Smith’s work: “I first met Gretchen at the 2007 Florence Biennale where I was both Master of Ceremonies and the Biennale liaison between management and 850 international exhibiting artists. During one of our many conversations I asked to see Gretchen’s portfolio. I was both pleased and amazed -- especially given that Smith is virtually self-taught -- to find work that was both inventive and accomplished. What surprised me most was that her original voice spoke to today. Gretchen is a very well-rounded visual artist and business woman with a rare depth of focus as well as the talent and discipline necessary to continue to be successful not only in the USA but also internationally.”

    Spud Software - More Than Just Software

    in Technology

    Software – a set of instructions that make devices perform tasks. It sounds really simple. In reality, it’s likely not, unless of course, you wrote the program. On June 2nd, 2015, host Melissa Birnie will speak with Derek Sommer, President of Spud Software. Spud Software was started in a basement in Grand Blanc, Michigan in 1997 and would catch the attention of the likes of General Motors and MSX International and, after completing several successful large scale projects, would develop a reputation for delivering high quality solutions at competitive prices. Almost 20 years later, Spud Software has worked with more than 200 clients and has established itself as a leader in the industry specializing in programming, database and software development. Join Melissa and Derek as they discuss the challenges Derek encountered as an entrepreneur in the software industry (his wife Gretchen is an entrepreneur, too!), learn about the variety of services Spud Software offers (SaaS, Project Scoping, Software Prototyping, Staff Augmentation, Tier 2 Support, Mobile Apps, Web Services and Custom Programming), and the talent necessary to make it all work.
