If you asked Danielle her purpose, she might tell you she’s here to help people. A lifetime Haligonian, Danielle is a people person through and through with a ton of service industry experience to prove it. After a four-year stint in management for the Aldo Group, Danielle worked the restaurant Chameleon where she continued to hone her service skills before joining the team at Trampoline.
Danielle has always been inspired by all things travel and fashion, but her biggest inspiration in life is her beautiful daughter Aubrey. But when Danielle isn’t on mom duty, she’s probably scouring Instagram for the latest trends and travel inspo. Her best trip? Milan, where she lived like a local and soaked up the sun (and of course, lots of prosecco).

Scott wants to learn, everything. From podcasts to documentaries, it’s rare to find Scott on a day when he’s not excited to share something he’s just learned. Like how tempeh growing in Tennessee eventually became Tofurky or the latest on decoupled architectures.
With more than 2 decades of experience in web development and enterprise architecture, Scott designs, builds and improves software with a focus on what users need from the service and how they’ll use it.
He’s designed and implemented large-scale web platforms, e-commerce sites, enterprise web systems, and web applications using technologies from Perl to ASP.Net. Scott brings a diverse background working with start-ups, professional services, non-profits and multinational corporations to his role at Twist & Bits.
When he’s not coding, he’s often searching for the perfect latte, scary movie or comic back issue.
With 8 years at the Atlantic Film Festival under his belt as a film programmer, Mark “Filmdall” Flindall brings two things to Trampoline: an incredibly vast knowledge of all things movie-related, and a name that’s almost too easy to pun. But thanks to Mark’s passion for the pictures and his data expertise, our small-but-mighty video department continues to pack quite the punch.
When Mark’s not scrubbing through hundreds—and we mean hundreds—of hours of video footage, he’s either spending all of his free time with his wife, Trina, and his daughter, Etta. That, or vehemently defending the finale of Lost to anyone who will listen. It’s been almost ten years, Mark. Let it go…
As a user interface and user experience designer, Ashley breathes life into the ideas and visions of the entire creative team.

You know those guys in the control room at NASA who are always so calm, cool and collected no matter what chaos may be going on around them? Adam is our NASA guy. His title, “Controller” could not be more accurate. In the midst of a fast-paced, creative, demanding and, yes, even crazy, environment, Adam remains grounded and in control. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a wild side. Ask him about his “Bubbles” report and then stand back as this guy gets pretty excited when talking about his “baby”.
When Adam was a little boy growing up in England, he didn’t dream of becoming a guard at Buckingham Palace or Bond, James Bond. No, he dreamt of coming to Canada, starting a hockey league (floor hockey, but hockey is hockey!) and scoring his first ever goal, as a Canadian citizen. Check, check and check—hey, it’s a hat trick! Well played Adam, well played. You really and truly are Canadian.

Whether it’s a grassroots brewery in Halifax, a fashion line in Spain, or a real estate brand in Toronto — Brittany is a passionate art director who is driven to create exceptional, results-driven conceptual work for her clients. While earning her Bachelor of Design at NSCAD University, she expanded her industry knowledge while studying marketing at Ryerson University. A traveler at heart, Brittany then moved to Germany to study Communication Design at The University of Mannheim, and later to Spain where she interned at the fashion-centric UNO Design Studio. After returning home to work in the agency world in Toronto, she found Halifax calling her back. We’re thrilled she answered the call.
When Brittany isn’t telling brand stories through stunning visuals, she loves to stay active by kickboxing and practicing ballet. She will not go a day without a tea or coffee and some old-school tunes. A true smarty-pants, she also speaks four languages. And she loves bread. While living in Germany, Brittany’s nickname was “Brot” (German for bread) or “Brottany” because she was forever bringing bread to class.
