Katie KellerProject Manager & Marketing Specialist
Having grown up in York, PA, Katie’s interest in video production manifested itself early. During her time at Penn State, she worked with the football team and went on to earn bachelor's degrees in Marketing and Film-Video. After school she followed her passion to work for the Pittsburgh Steelers. In her free time you might find Katie exploring the city with Zoey, her Australian Shepard, feeding her Game of Thrones obsession, or hitting the slopes.
Julia HanleyProducer/Marketing Specialist
Julia grew up in Drexel Hill, PA and graduated from Temple University with a degree in Photojournalism and Communications. She moved back to the area after working as Digital Asset Manager and Production Coordinator in Lake Tahoe, California for six years. When she’s not in the office, Julia is all about family-time and can be found with her daughter Caroline Ruby, cooking for loved ones (most often her husband who says every meal is his favorite) or enjoying a quiet moment during a power yoga class.
Honore BrownPhoto Editor
Having grown up near Philly, Honore escaped to the Pacific Northwest to study at a non-traditional liberal arts college, tugging along her first Canon. Several cameras and several stops later (including The New Yorker magazine, where she was a photo editor), she is back to Philly, pursuing her own photography and working as part of WM’s editing team. She believes a good editor must get under the photographer’s skin – understand how they work and match them with a publication or a brand. When she is not doing that, she will likely at the Franklin Institute with her two kids.
Bryan was raised in the Northern NJ suburbs of NYC, since then he has lived in 4 other states ... and visited all 50 of 'em. Bryan received a BFA in photography from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Throughout Bryan’s career his love for creative planning of detailed productions has led him to concept, plan, and execute photography for publications, brands, and agencies all over the world. On the weekends Bryan can be found exploring forests, rivers, & mountains along-side his theatre executive wife, their 2 young children, and family dog Bobby “Big Legs”.
Jemma DilagAssociate Producer/ Photo Editor
If you’ve ever felt like you don’t dress interestingly enough (or just want to be in a better mood), go see Jemma Dilag. Her passion for fashion is matched only by her desire to support others — and put a smile on their face in the process. If this Tyler School of Art grad isn’t helping our members further their careers, she’s working on her own creative endeavors in the fields of photography, writing, or dancing. The Bronx-born artist with an infectious laugh is never too far from a Paramore playlist or her beloved cats, Violet and Theo.
Nadia KiyatkinaAssociate Producer
Nadia is Russia born but Jersey bred. Claims not to be a spy. She studied at Royal Holloway University and Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in England. Nadia is passionate about the arts, language and other cultures. She has recently become a working-dog foster at the Penn Vet center and is very excited about this new journey.
Cameron SterlingPhoto Editor/Creative Consultant
Cameron grew up in Connecticut and lived in every state beginning with C. After editing publications through high school and college, he served as editor of a mountain lifestyle website in Colorado before leaving to study commercial photography at Brooks. Since then, he has worked as a photo editor and creative consultant for Adobe Stock, Hiro, and The Avedon Foundation, to name a few. Outside of his dream job, Cameron loves playing with his kids and finding zen in busy places.
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.

As an artist, Greg has exhibited internationally and has visual books in library collections at MoMA, The Met, Yale, and others.

Greg’s wife is from Indiana, their greyhound is named Indiana, and they watch lots of movies together. He also patiently waits for the Buffalo Bills to return to glory. “Go Bills!” he often says.
Rachel CaryAssociate Photo Editor
Rachel is drawn to all things beautiful. At Wonderful Machine, she makes sure our photographers’ database stays current and beautiful — aka wonderful. Rachel plunged into photography after getting a BA in fashion merchandising and joining an e-commerce startup on the New Jersey Coast. There, she was responsible for fashion shoots and developed interest in make-up. She is now studying to become a licensed aesthetician. After work, she is likely to scout vintage clothing stores or share Mexican food with friends and family.
Andrew SoudersAssociate Photo Editor
Andrew got his BA in Art History and Fine Art Painting from Tyler School of Arts. He then worked in a commercial photography studio as an assistant, digi-tech, and re-toucher. At Wonderful Machine, he is responsible for recruiting crew for our members. “I came inside out … I definitely have a knack for production.” He also has a knack for vintage motorcycles (he credits his late grandfather, an Iwo Jima veteran, for instilling him with love for all things hand-made). He is also a connoisseur of Philadelphia’s craft beers, which he firmly believes are second to none.
Andrea MaurioPhoto Editor
A versatile veteran of the visual arts, Andrea Maurio has racked up nearly two decades of experience as an editor, director, and producer for publications like Village Voice, Shape, and Maxim. Winner of the American Photography Award for reportage, Andrea is passionate about documentary filmmaking and helping others. An animal lover with an educator’s soul, when Andrea isn’t volunteering as a dog walker, she’s busy mentoring the next generation of photographers.
Mike HooverAssociate Producer
Mike studied photography and sculpture at the University of the Arts in Philly, where he became fascinated with alternative processes – from cyanotype to gum bichromate. He now runs a dark room and a large format printing studio in West Philly. At Wonderful Machine, he researches and scouts crew to support our photographers. After work, you can bump into him at Bartram’s Garden - canoeing or hanging out at the Sankofa Community Farm. He loves talking to people and considers it his strength to be able to open up to almost anyone.
Sarah BloomAssociate Producer
Sarah is born and raised in Philadelphia, where she attended Drexel University for Photography. When she isn’t working at Wonderful Machine, she is illustrating or doing community engagement at the Barnes Foundation. Sarah is passionate about baking, art, traveling, and her cat Peaches. As a lover of all things British, she hopes to pursue her creative endeavors as a London resident.
Kevin HalleranAssociate Producer
Kevin grew up in Toms River, New Jersey and studied film at Boston University. After several years as an editor in New York, he moved to San Francisco and earned an M.F.A. in creative writing from San Francisco State. Recently, he moved back east to receive his M.A. in English literature from Villanova. He has taught English and creative writing at the college level and has published stories and essays in various literary journals. When he isn’t chipping away at his eternally unfinished novel, Kevin loves sports, movies, and playing guitar.
Matthew BaronSEO Expert
Matthew Baron — or just Baron if you’re as busy as him — somehow finds time to manage Wonderful Machine’s SEO endeavors while simultaneously running his five businesses. The Philly native has accumulated a wealth of work experience in the communications sphere, counting The Walt Disney Company, Bruckheimer Films, and Dell Computers as previous stops, but now spends time turning his passions into a profession. To wit: one of his five ventures is called Gourmet Nuts and Dried Fruit, which the Northeastern alum wants to use to “help as many people as possible” by providing them with nutritious food options. In the rare instances when he has free time, Baron runs large-scale festivals and makes interactive art.
Justin is from Allentown, Pennsylvania, and moved to Philadelphia to study Film and English at Temple University. After getting his degrees and spending some time working in marketing for start-up companies, he came here to Wonderful Machine. At home, he can usually be found teaching his cat, Stretch, about the exploits of the 2001 Seattle Mariners or in the kitchen trying to pickle any vegetable he can find.
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.
Cliff’s mantra in life is forming meaningful connections, so it’s only natural he oversees Wonderful Machine’s social media. Having earned an M.A. in social services from Bryn Mawr, he spent almost a decade working with mental health patients. He also studied jazz in Boston’s Berklee College of Music, and is currently pursuing an online certificate in Design Thinking through MIT. “It’s all about empathy,” says Cliff. “Whether you’re trying to help a person in need, or enhance user experience as a designer, you first need to understand their perspective.” Social media isn’t any different – Cliff strives to create engagement and, by doing so, forge relationships between clients and photographers. After he logs off Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, he might go for a run in Philly’s Spruce St. Harbor Park or get lost in Robert Glasper’s music.
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.
Varun is the kind of person who hardly ever returns to the same restaurant. He just can’t help exploring. He did recently return to his native Philadelphia after graduating with a BA in Communications from Syracuse, and then covering baseball in Baltimore. At Wonderful Machine, he writes about our member photographers, worrying that so many outstanding images do not get a fraction of attention they deserve. Can he change that? A formidable challenge, but “if you tell a good story, people will listen.”
Will grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia and earned a B.A. in media studies and production from Temple University. He is a musician and has written and produced songs for many artists mainly in the Philadelphia area. In his free time, you can find him writing music, goin’ out for a surf, watching Pulp Fiction for the umpteenth time, or hanging with his cat, Tom (Thomas O’Malley the Alley Cat).
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).
