Eddie Loeffen
Software Developer
As Eddie's twitter profile states, he doesn't like writing bios, but he sure can write code. If you are using our software, then Eddie has had an influential hand into your experience. When he is at work (or not), he seems to have a particular affinity to food with his love of  chocolate snails, cucumber writing and creating his piece de resistance a food blogging site: Miss Cookie. As well as having a deft touch with software, Eddie has a way with hardware as well and runs his own PC company Zephyr PC on the side.

Simon Lampen

Director of Making Stuff (Software)
Building great software is very rewarding, as it can be very creative as well as it being satisfying coming up with solutions to companies' business problems. With a particular interest in wine, I have had a dual life since doing a B.Com at Auckland University then following this with a post graduate diploma in Viticulture and Oenology from Lincoln University. I spent 10 years working as a winemaker for my own company and others including Dry River Wines in Martinborough and Delegat's Wine Estate in Auckland among others, while at the same time starting and building Vinsight Software. Since 2005 I have focused on the Software Company and have been enjoying refining our offerings as well as doing contract work in the BioTech industry and some work in brewing as well.
