Rachel has been at Databound since 2006. In that time she has tried her hand in just about every department: development, sales, testing, training, consulting, marketing, and product management. As it turns out, Rachel is better with people than with computers and found herself most at home when working directly with customers. After starting a family in 2013, Rachel stopped traveling and focused her efforts in product management and then consulting. When she’s not working or chasing her kids, Rachel enjoys mountain biking, sewing clothing, and reading.

Kristen Foster

Technical Support Lead

Kristen is “The Voice of EMUE,” answering EMUE support calls and questions since 2010. Kristen also performed EMUE product testing, so he knows EMUE inside and out!

He also tinkers with network and server hardware/software and squeezes in the more-than-occasional golf/tennis game.

Don Tompkins

Application Developer

With Databound since 2008, Don has his hands in lots of projects, including EMUE, custom insurance verification tracking applications for customers, and even our CRM project.

Travis Owens

Application Developer

Travis joined our team in 2017 with an extensive background in programming in the medical world, manufacturing, business, and data migration creating web applications as far back as the dawn of the web in the 90s. When Travis isn’t fixing bugs or adding features, he dabbles in videography, filming many of central New York’s events, festivals, bars, and restaurants.

Peter Curinga III

Quality Assurance Lead

Joining Databound in 2013, Pete has wasted no time in re-engineering our internal daily and release regression testing processes to maintain and improve EMUE’s quality. When Pete is not insuring EMUE’s rock-solid reliability, he enjoys gaming and helping teenagers through support groups and leadership training.
