Jeremy Gotwals | FOUNDER

Jeremy founded Holon in late 2011, with nothing but a ragtag team of freelancers, our first authors, and a vision. Jeremy is a designer, writer, photographer, film producer, PR & digital marketing expert, and a musician who has opened for the Dalai Lama, John Mellencamp, and made numerous network television appearances, including American Idol and MTV Networks. Moreover; He is one bad-ass publisher. He has handled, managed, and executed all of the odds and ends of every publishing project since day 1. He will tell it to you straight and most importantly - he will make your day. That is his mission statement and purpose in life. If he can't handle your project, no one can.

Kari Gotwals | CO-FOUNDER, CARTOGRAPHER, EDITOR

Kari entered the scene after Holon's first year of business starting with one small project: mapping a giant list of authors from around the world. That was what she did, and still does: makes maps. Kari has a full-time career making maps for large companies, but on the side, she has been a project-manager, editor, book designer, and book marketer for numerous Holon authors. Without her hard work, dedication, and sacrifices, Holon would not exist today. She didn't marry the CEO until after the fact. ;-)

Morgan "Sunny" Miller | LEAD DESIGNER, MARKETER

In the line of brilliant women to have worked for Holon and contributed to its success, Morgan comes second or third. Besides her genius as a graphic designer, for books, websites, logos, or anything under the sun, she brings a tremendous amount of knowledge in the realm of digital marketing for our book campaigns. When she isn't "killing it" with designs or digital marketing, she has provided tremendous value as a consultant. Morgan runs her own design firm and creative agency which works in cojunction with Holon on large-scale efforts.

Zachary "Lewis" Young | WRITER & EDITOR

Lewis is a writer. That is what he does. He lives and will die by the written word. He tackles the typing and articulation when you don't have time to. He is a poet, and excellent speaker as well, delivering verbs with vengeance. His sarcasm and witty sense of humor are unparalleled. His knowledge of Politics and Ancient Rome will leave you begging for more. Don't stand in his way, or he just might write you into a story... the ending of which you might not escape alive.
