Q Beck, Co-founder & CEO

Q Beck co-founded Famigo during the 2nd semester of his MBA program. Prior to business school, he spent 9 years in the film industry as a development and production executive for numerous companies, including Nickelodeon and DreamWorks. He earned a BA from Columbia University and an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin.

Douglas Ferguson, CTO & Software Genius

At Famigo, Douglas writes a variety of software (web, mobile, API, whatever), and also keeps the hamsters inside of our servers from overheating. He thinks a lot about the way we build software and how we can make processes faster and more fun. In addition to the software thing, Douglas is a musician, photographer and dabler in anything that transmits electrons through wires or the air.

Matt McDonnell, VP of Operations

A native of Scranton, PA, Matt holds a B.A. in Philosophy from Colgate University, an MBA from the College of Charleston, and is taking a leave of absence from the University of Texas School of Law in order to focus all his attention on Famigo. Previously, Matt worked as an Outward Bound sailing instructor and elementary school teacher before co-founding two dropout prevention programs in Charleston, South Carolina.
