Meet The Team



Julian Kidd – As co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, he brings 20 years of experience leading non-profit organizations.  Julian is an outdoors-man, geek and hopeless romantic hybrid, who lives by the motto, “If I give a man a fish then he will eat for that day, If I teach a man how to fish then he will eat forever.”  Top 3 flicks to rent; The Outlaw Jose Wales, Spider-man II and Love & Basketball.



John Kidd III – As co-founder and  Chief Financial Officer, he brings 15 years of experience with corporate organizational structure.  When we refer to John, we like to say he is the excellence of execution.
