Meet the Anarchists

Meet the folks currently part of our in-house staff.

Jim Tierney, President
Chief Executive Anarchist

Our founder, Jim Tierney, is a pioneer in the development of visual tools for motion design and compositing. During the 1990's, Jim worked for software companies like MetaTools, Atomic Power and Cycore. He helped create graphics products like Bryce, Evolution and Studio Effects. After working on After Effects plugins for almost a decade, Jim thought it was finally time to get out there and do some of his own. So he did, and Digital Anarchy was born in 2001.

Garrick Meeker, Head Engineer
Architect of Anarchy

Garrick Meeker has been with the company since its inception in 2001. He has worked as a 2D programmer for companies that include Industrial Light and Magic and Pinnacle Systems. Garrick is the programmer of Beauty Box, Backdrop Designer, Text Anarchy and Microcosm, among other Digital Anarchy products. In his real life, Garrick plays the French Horn.

Tor Olson
Anarchy Quality

Tor joined Digital Anarchy in 2015 after meeting Jim at City College of San Francisco, where he excelled in the Broadcast Production department. As a boxing aficionado he does an excellent job using our software for a punching bag and knocking all the bugs out of it.

Bob Powell
Chaos Development

Bob has worked in CG since 1989, including at companies like ILM, Rhythm & Hues, Sony Imageworks, and Laika, both in software and as a technical director. He has over 14 film credits including The Green Mile, Star Wars 2, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Life of Pi. In his spare time he cares for a passel of 4 footed friends, enjoys live music, travel and tries to cook. :-)

Fierce Peanut
VP of Chair Warming

Fierce Peanut is a fierce chaser of sun spots! (and the occasional laser pointer) She instigates work breaks by jumping on your shoulder. And she adds to productivity by warming our seats while we are at lunch.

Molotov Cupcake
VP of Cuteness

Our office kitten is a spitfire. Molotov Cupcake fearlessly hunts the printer whenever it makes a noise. She keeps things light around the office by ensuring the Anarchy Cuteness meter is kept at it's maximum.

The Alien
Company Mascot

Our mascot is six feet tall and tons of fun. The Alien is a replica prop made out of resin. She's not completely true to the original, but close enough to fool us when we're around the office at night.
