FileMaker Business Alliance - Certified Platinum Developer

The Kyo Logic Team

John Mathewson
President

Certified FileMaker Developer
16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7

John is the President of Kyo Logic, starting it in 2002 out of his house in Westport, Connecticut. Owning and running a technology-based company has been a dream of his ever since he was younger. When FileMaker came into the tech world, it immediately sparked his interest and thus, Kyo Logic was born. In his previous line of work, his company had implemented FileMaker as their primary software development system, so John has been familiar with FileMaker for a while. His first certification in FileMaker dates back to FileMaker 5 in 2002 (back when it was referred to as the FileMaker Proficiency Exam), and continues to get certified every year. Originally from Canada, John was an avid Hockey player growing up and became interested in electronics, especially audio equipment. When he isn’t running Kyo Logic, he is at home designing and building audio equipment, spending time with his dog and our company mascot (Muffin), and honing his skills in the kitchen, especially when cooking East Asian cuisine.
Arika Horn
Project Manager
Arika handles a different side of Kyo Logic, she is our Project Manager, working with clients and the development team to make sure projects are on budget and are being completed on time. She has been a part of the family since starting in 2014, joining us just after graduating from Rochester Institute of Technology with a major in Marketing and a minor in Advertising and Public Relations. She lives in Norwalk with her dog Khali (conveniently nicknamed after the Mother of Dragons from the popular HBO series Game of Thrones), she loves to cook extravagant meals, and hang out with her friends/dog. She is also a devoted sports fan, aiming her loyalty at the Buffalo Sabers, Detroit Lions, and  New York Yankees.
Stoddard Horn
Director of Sales
Stoddard has been the head of Kyo Logic’s sales initiative since 2016. With his background in supply chain management at various popular fashion companies, he is no stranger to the marketing world. Stoddard has always exemplified the importance of following up with clients to check in and make sure that they received what they needed. When he is not speaking with clients, he loves to play frisbee golf, root for the Mets, and stay on top of the latest technology trends.
Christian O’Brien
Developer

Certified FileMaker Developer 15

Christian first joined the Kyo Logic in 2016 as a FileMaker Developer. Since that time he has become a mentor for new developers joining the team teaching them the ins and outs of FileMaker. Christian quickly earned his first FileMaker Certification in version 15. In his free time Christian likes building apps for his close friends many times in FileMaker due to the easy to use nature. Like many of the other team members of Kyo Logic Christian is an avid chef and foodie and can always recommend the latest cooking trends.
Susan Murphy
Developer

Certified FileMaker Developer 15, 13

Susan started working with Kyo Logic in October of 2016. She’s worked with computers and technology for non-profits, in telecommunications and as an independent contractor.  Susan’s IT background led to an interest in software development, and she’s now a certified developer for multiple FileMaker versions. She prides herself on being well versed in navigating FileMaker tech support documentation and being able to solve even the most obscure FileMaker problems. When she isn’t coding, Susan enjoys being outdoors hiking, staying close with family and friends, and is a recreational film photographer.
Kristian Rivera
Developer
Kristian joined Kyo Logic in January. Originally from Puerto Rico, he moved to the U.S. after receiving a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Puerto Rico. As a senior he prided himself on his final project which had him design and create a website in just 3 weeks for a local business, specifically incorporating PayPal API within the website. He loves anything baseball, exploring new foods and spending time with his wife and daughter in New Haven, Connecticut. Kristian devotes a lot of his time in the office to developing, supporting, and assisting in any way he can both with clients and with his coworkers.
Jackson Waskowitz
Developer
Jackson joined Kyo Logic from the University of Vermont with a bachelor’s degree in Biology. Post grad he quickly found interest in coding and attended a 3-month coding boot camp class for web development. Since becoming a part of the development team in February 2018, Jackson has become extremely familiar with FileMaker and has been working towards becoming a certified developer. Before working at Kyo Logic, Jackson was a cook at an upscale restaurant, this solidified his interest in the culinary world. When he isn’t finding new restaurants around the area, he is enlightening the office with the amazing food experiences he has come across.
Justin Hesser
Developer
Justin attended the University of Florida (Go Gators), something that is very clear when he is wearing anything blue and orange around the office. Justin was lucky enough to have had lots of experience with FileMaker before coming to Kyo Logic in 2018. In his off time, Justin loves to remain active and play sports, or go on hikes with his dog Zoey. A few fun facts about Justin are: his favorite food is guacamole (on just about anything that tastes good with it), and his first favorite album he ever owned was the Stranger by Billy Joel. Justin is a problem solver and is most comfortable solving complicated situations within coding and building systems.
Nicole Thurgood
Design and Development Intern
Nicole is a Senior at the Rochester Institute of Technology completing a cooperative education program with Kyo Logic this summer. She is majoring in Human Centered Computing to exercise her knack for web design and making sure applications provide a streamlined user experience. She came to Kyo Logic with no FileMaker experience, but the software has quickly turned into one of her favorites to use. Coming from a coding background she had to become accustomed to the new interface, but she really likes how customizable it is. When she isn’t at Kyo Logic, she loves spending time deep in books, specifically fantasy and fiction.
Connor Mathewson
Marketing Intern
Connor is our summer Marketing intern and is spending the majority of his time updating the website and managing our social media presence. He is a rising Junior at Elon University in North Carolina as a Finance and Marketing double major. When he is not with Kyo Logic during the week he is working in Southport, Connecticut as a Launch Operator for a yacht club. He loves spending time outside, especially on boats, and he particularly enjoys going skiing in the winter, and cliff jumping in the summer. He is an avid cook, and especially enjoys experimenting with new foods. He grew up in Westport, Connecticut and spends time in the summers at his log cabin in Quebec, Canada.
Muffin Mathewson
Office Mascot
Meet Muffin, Kyo Logic’s four-legged Mascot. Born in 2007, she doesn’t have any FileMaker experience but she helps John run things around the office. When she isn’t enjoying treats and taking naps at Kyo, she is doing the exact same things in her free time at home. If you ever come to visit our office, she will almost definitely be the first member of the team you will see.
