Meet the team

Our crew is what makes ShortStack awesome. We’re pros, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

Doug Churchill

Co-Founder, Leader

Doug oversees the vision and strategic direction of the company. Over the last decade, ShortStack has grown from an in-house solution for client projects to a trusted platform for brands and agencies around the globe. Doug has a degree in math/computer science from UCLA, but has been coding since he was in high school. When he’s not in the office, Doug can be found in the gym or enjoying life with his family.
