Meet Our Team

Brian Leimone

Director of Web and Marketing & Business Partner

Hello, I’m Brian, Director of Web Development. I spend most of my days on online. Quite literally, without an internet connection – I am “a fish without water”. If I am not behind a computer coding and designing a website – I am meeting with our clients helping them plan and dream about their new website. I also spend time keeping up to date on trends in social media, search engine optimization, and best practices for website development.

I’ve been a part of the “web world” for over 17 years and absolutely LOVE what I do! The most rewarding part of my work is when I hear from a client sharing their success. “The website is awesome! We’ve got more work than we can handle!” Those words make the tough days of development worthwhile.

When I’m not building websites, you will find me with my family. I have an amazing wife who cares for our 6 kids. Most days our house is a bit insane, but neither of us would trade it for the world.

Craig Phillips

Director of Print and Design & Business Partner

Originally a Michigander, I attended Ferris State University where I earned a BS in Visual Communication, which gave me the training and technical expertise for graphic design and managing the technology used in our industry.  I have been with the Nu team for 6 years and been a part of the amazing growth our company has experienced.  Through those years I have watched our company expand from a quick-copy shop into a full fledged web and graphic design firm and I’m so glad I’ve been along for the amazing ride!

I enjoy coming to work each day and managing my many different responsibilities, but my greatest passion lies in the graphic design on a logo.  There is no greater satisfaction than taking an idea of a client and bringing their vision to life on the screen.

My wife, Shannon and step-daughter, Peyton and I live in a home full of activity with three dogs.

Michelle Queen

Web Design Specialist

Hi, my name is Michelle. I have been doing website design since 2010 and absolutely love it! Being able to work here at Nu expression is a wonderful blessing, and I like that every day is different. Some days there are things to design, or code to de-bug, and yet other days there are simple administrative tasks to do. I enjoy doing all of it.

Most people would never know – but I was born in Zimbabwe Africa and lived there for 12 years. I’ve blogged about living in Africa (you can read the posts here)

I’m married to a wonderful man named Eli and love spending time with him. We serve together at church, take road trips, and love playing games – board or video. I enjoy getting to “do life” with him!

Becca Strange

Web & Graphic Design Specialist

Hey! My name is Becca,

I learned the basics of graphic design and print production as a high school intern right here with the Nu team. Now, I am so excited to be back with the company and people who inspired my career as a graphic designer!

When I’m not working, I try to keep up with my best friend, soldier, and wonderful husband, Shane. I also enjoy crafts, cuddling with my retired soldier pup Julia & learning new design trends.

I’m a glass half full kind of gal and I believe that with faith and an open mind, anything is possible!

Courtney Grant

Web Design Specialist

Hi! I’m Courtney! You used to know me as the first happy face you met when you came through the door.. Now you may find me working on your website!

While in college, I changed my degree to Commercial Photography and decided to minor in Graphic Arts and Imaging. I quickly fell in love with learning about design and the creative industry. When I’m not at Nu Expression, I’m photographing engagements and weddings, which means I stay on the go from early in the morning, to late at night some days. I love being around creatives of all trades, whether it’s a gorgeous wedding, or a thought out logo and website, it sets my heart on fire to see the end result knowing the hard work behind the beauty.

Tori Shanks

SEO & Marketing Specialist

Hello, I’m Tori! I am the SEO & Marketing Specialist. I’m an English & History major at Salem College so I plan to use my research & writing skills to improve the online presence of our clients. I have worn many hats in the past from working in libraries, to retail stores, to even working in the automotive industry! While all of those were enjoyable experiences, I think I have found a great place to exercise my talents and grow here at Nu.

When I’m not working, I’m more than likely spending time with my boyfriend and our three mutts (Sadie, Otis, & Mika)! I also love to read books by my favorite comediennes, binge-watch TV shows on Netflix, and go for relaxing rides on the back of a motorcycle.

Alaina Grit

Graphic Design & Customer Specialist

I am the new Graphic Design & Customer Specialist. I have a degree in Advertising & Graphic Design. I enjoy using my creative abilities to design visually appealing pieces of work. I have experience designing work that’s ready for print and web. I also have 8 years of experience in customer service and thoroughly enjoy keeping smiles on every customer’s face.

When not at work I enjoy spending time with my daughter, boyfriend and our three dogs. I’m not just creative with a computer, I also love being creative in the kitchen! I enjoy baking and decorating cakes on the weekends (something Nu is very happy about 😉 ) On a pretty day you can more than likely find me kayak fishing on the river, hiking up Stone Mountain or boating/jet skiing on the lake. I am always up for an outdoor adventure.
