During her time at Penn State, she worked with the football team on video production and went on to earn her degrees in Marketing and Film/Video in 2016. After school, she followed her passion, working for the Steelers in the same capacity. In her free time, you might find Katie exploring the city, feeding her Game of Thrones obsession, or hitting the slopes.

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 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).
