Brad Linger is a 27 year old technology lover turned business owner. He has been married for 5 years to his beautiful wife, Emilee, with whom they are proud parents of a 6 pound Morkie puppy named Wookie. Prior to starting Alias Media, Brad worked on both the IT and programming sides of 2 prominent Kansas City based multimedia firms. Brad has a Master of Arts in Management and Leadership and is an active member of Microsoft Development Network. Additionally, he splits his time with Tiffany Fellowship Church serving as their director of student ministries.
Alias Media is multimedia design and development firm with a special focus on web based solutions. Celebrating its 3rd birthday last January, Alias has shown growth each year of its existence. The catalyst for starting the company was finding that many similar firms were bloated and weighed down with unnecessary staffing and operational costs. Rather than follow the traditional model, Alias has created a network of independent designers and developers while maintaining "bare bones" overhead costs. This affords the company the ability to respond quickly to market and technological changes.
