Sarah BenderAssociate Photo Editor
Raised in the Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Sarah stayed local for college earning both a B.A. in English and an M.A. in American Studies from Lehigh University. Today she lives in Chester County where she’s busy raising two boys who specialize in turning her living room furniture into a trampoline park. Together, they gallivant around the countryside in search of new adventures, unique opportunities and simple fun. With a pre-kid career in sports magazine publishing, and an addiction to endorphins, she spends her free time running the back roads around her home at insanely early hours of the morning.
Born and raised in Florida, Coco studied creative writing at the University of South Florida. When she’s not getting the Wonderful Machine content out into the world, she stays busy by directing short films, experimenting with film cameras, and making music. While you can find her jamming in a few bands, Coco doesn’t need live instruments to get her music fix. Just give her a microphone and a stereo blasting New Order. She is an avid karaoke enthusiast and it’s very important that we mention that in her bio.
Ashley was born in Evanston, Illinois but spent his formative years in the Ohio River Valley before escaping to study literature and philosophy. He’s written with great clarity about F.W.J. Schelling’s Freiheitsschrift and once taught a course on Spinoza’s Ethics, but he’d really like to write about friendship in “Miller’s Crossing” (1990). His favorite memories include having his name mocked by a delivery man, who quipped, “and I’m Victoria”; his wedding (the best he’d ever been to) and the birth of his son (“the horror, the horror”); and winning the 2008 Tour de France. At Wonderful Machine he works on internal documentation and is a gadfly.
By way of Reading, PA, Lindsay moved to Philly to get her BFA at Tyler School of Art. She has since had amazing opportunities, working with groups like Songs in the Key of Free and Philadelphia Photo Arts Center. Once upon a time, to supplement her income as a freelancer, she found work in a coffee shop, overcame her shyness, and found that talking to strangers (mug in-hand) is one of her favorite hobbies. In her free-time, Lindsay paints, runs, swims, climbs, is self-admittedly obsessed with her dog, Obi-Wan Cannoli and is usually on the cusp of over-caffeination.
Georgia grew up in Paoli, Pennsylvania and attended the University of Vermont where she received a B.S. in psychological sciences and a minor in studio art. Leaving the frigid winters behind, Georgia moved to the slightly less frigid Philadelphia where she began working at a photo lab, specializing in printing, film processing and archiving. Outside of Wonderful Machine, Georgia is the assistant editor to Philadelphia-based fine art photography publication, The Photo Review. When the weekend rolls around, Georgia enjoys riding her bike around the Schuylkill river banks, catching some live music, and frequenting the local art scene.
Adrienne CramerBusiness Manager
Adrienne keeps Wonderful Machine running smoothly by managing all of our billing and payroll. Before starting WM with her husband Bill, Adrienne was director of marketing for a nonprofit, and before that, she worked in scientific publishing. She's the proud mother of 16-year-old twins Sarah and Helen. She makes a perfect tart crust, is an NPR junkie and can sometimes read a good book in a day.
Bill CramerFounder & CEO
Prior to dreaming up Wonderful Machine, Bill Cramer spent 20 years working as a photographer - first as a photojournalist for newspapers and wire services, then later doing conceptual portraits for magazines, corporations, and institutions. When he isn't busy working with his staff or interacting with photographers, you can find him walking Tilly, reading biographies or relaxing with his family.
Tilly is Bill and Adrienne’s lovable Labrador retriever. Her job description includes snoozing on the couch and inspecting trash cans around the office. At 3:30pm sharp, she walks to the 7-Eleven for her daily banana. Otherwise, you'll find her chewing on sticks, or playing fetch (she can carry three at a time).
