Our team

Jamie Tillman
Chief Executive Officer and Lead Architect

Jamie started off as a musician and writer, but discovered he was usually tinkering with computers instead of "working." Then he found out people would actually pay him to do what he would have done for free, anyway.
Throughout his career, Jamie has filled a variety of roles -- solo programmer, team lead, VP of Product Development, even CEO and co-owner of a multi-million dollar software company. He has served some of the largest State government agencies in the USA, non-profits and for-profits of all sizes, and upstart entrepreneurs with nothing but an idea and a nest-egg. Decades of invaluable experience led Jamie to establish Prolydian with his long time friend, Jay Foster. Jamie lives in Tallahassee with his wife and 2 kids.

Jay Foster
President and Lead Dreamer

Jay has an entrepreneurial spirit and a deep passion for creating technology-based businesses that empower, heal, help, and connect. Having over twenty years of experience developing and managing technology projects including assisting organizations with certificate and certification programs, Jay co-founded Prolydian with ("the wizard") Jamie Tillman. Jay lives in Tallahassee with his wife Danielle, son Braden, and cat Mr. Mustache.
