Meet the Rabbits
Our staff has a wide range of technical and nontechnical backgrounds, from software developers to nonprofit leaders. We have far-reaching experience with technology, design, communications, and the practical ins and outs of completing projects successfully.

Aiden Kent

Senior Project Manager

Aiden’s diverse background across a range of technical and creative disciplines means they are equipped to steward GR client visions with empathy, honesty, and humor (and a bit of magic here and there).  She holds 12 years of combined experience in stage management, marketing, communications, and creative direction and a BA in journalism from DePaul University. Aiden lives in Portland, OR with her husband and doggy. 

Alona Sistrunk

Project Manager

Part-rabbit/part-Renaissance woman, Alona developed her passion for creative problem solving and fostering mission-driven collaboration while working as a digital storyteller, systems-builder, and fundraiser for several legal advocacy nonprofits and political communications firms. On any given day, you’ll find her bouncing about St. Louis, listening to podcasts, or renovating her 125-year-old Victorian triplex.

Anna Heath

Lead Technical Strategist

Anna has served as both a developer and a project manager on some of GR's most technically-challenging projects, large and small. As our Lead Technical Strategist, she guides the choices that shape a project from start to finish. She entered the non-profit world at the tender age of 11, when she was taken in by a troupe of traveling players, and never looked back.

Anthony Nemirovsky

Tech Lead

Anthony has years of experience planning and building websites and data systems; he has also worked as a project manager on some of GR's longest-running development and support projects. That technological and practical perspective makes him one of GR's Tech Leads; he works with a wide range of ongoing projects to make sure that both the implementation details and the project overall are headed in a successful direction.

Ben Wheeler

Senior Drupal Developer

Ben has years of Drupal experience and has worked on some of GR's biggest and most complex builds. His extensive Drupal experience makes him a leader of GR's constantly evolving Drupal best practices. He is also a seasoned front-end developer, with a detailed eye for rendering flat designs into dynamic, responsive Drupal themes. Ben studies Hakomi and somatic psychotherapy in his spare time.

Daniel Heath


Daniel oversees strategy, planning and implementation for GR's slate of projects. He has managed hundreds of large and small web and data projects from initial planning through implementation through long-term maintenance, support, and evolution. He is also a nationally-produced playwright.

Hanna Miller

Project Strategist

An adept generalist with an eye for detail, Hanna connects mission-driven people and projects with the strategies and technology they need to do good work. Hanna honed her skills at Impact Justice prior to joining the Giant Rabbit team, and can be found knitting, embroidering, weaving, crafting, gaming, and hiking when she's not problem-solving for her clients.

Kilah Willingham

Systems Administrator

After a career in banking and arts management, Kilah turned her skills toward Systems Administration, and is responsible for improving our internal systems and keeping our servers and websites secure. When not writing and running her ansible scripts, she can be found designing at her sewing machine, trekking in the California desert, or landing commercial gigs as an in-demand LA actress.

Liana Dillaway

Project Manager

Prior to joining the Giant Rabbit team, Liana worked as a stage manager at the circus, where she developed a flexible management style and the ability to expertly juggle a wide array of projects with varying creative desires and technological requirements. When not helping her clients stick the proverbial landing, Liana can be found gaming, reading, hiking and hanging out with her cat, Boota.

Maxamaris Hoppe

Senior Project Manager

Armed with a degree in creative writing, Max began her project management career with WordPress websites for professional authors. Max began her work with giant rabbits in 2006 when she starred in her high school production of Harvey and she's thrilled to be back in such good company. Outside the office, Max spends her time with cats, books, and baked goods. 

Michelle Nguyen

Lead Designer

Our lead designer, Michelle, has built a broad portfolio in print, digital, brand strategy, and social platforms for notable clients such as adidas, Motorola, HP, Playstation, and Wells Fargo. She has earned 2 ADDY awards as a creative and was featured in AdWeek’s Creative 100 in 2018. Aside from design, she spends most of her time as a dog mom of 3 (one pug and two chow chows), watching true crime documentaries, and cheering for her hometown hockey team, the San Jose Sharks.

Peter Haight


Peter is Giant Rabbit's technical leader; he has decades of experience planning and implementing software projects for both tiny nonprofits and industry-leading start-ups. He guides GR's technical processes from systems administration through development and long-term support, and acts as GR's highest point of escalation for all technical issues. He really, really, really understands how this stuff works.

Richard Esguerra

Managing Director

Richard Esguerra helps clients chart a sustainable path forward, integrating the latest in technology with insights from years in non-profit development and management. Specializing in performance metrics and the stories told by data, he understands the distinct challenges facing non-profit organizations and shares the passion underpinning our clients’ mission-driven work.

Tiago Bember Simeão

Bember Simeão
Senior Developer

Tiago has been a PHP developer with a focus on Drupal for nearly a decade. He's a veteran Drupal agency developer, and he previously worked for the University of Florida designing and implementing software for clinical research. He suspects that his passion for investigating and solving software issues shares the same roots as his passion for mystery/crime novels and films.

Tristan Wolfe


After years of managing web projects for professional authors, Tristan crossed over and became a Drupal and WordPress developer. His work as both a project manager and a developer gives him a 360 degree view of web technology, from conception to execution. On sunny days Tristan can be found exploring the beautiful woods of the west coast, and on rainy days his journeys take him into the pages of his favorite fantasy novels.
