Meet the Team
We're all about collaborating to make great things happen. So let's get acquainted!
Feel free to reach out to any of us if you have a question, want to start a project, or just to say hello!
Jess DudleyExecutive Producer
Jess was born in the suburbs of Des Moines, but calls Tucson, Arizona his hometown. He’s Wonderful Machine’s longest-standing employee, having joined the team in 2006. Jess is a loving father and husband, and he’s happiest when he’s busy— not a hard task for a WM producer. When he isn't working on a production or an estimate, he's either renovating his 100-year-old home or kickin’ it with his fam.
Craig OppenheimerExecutive Producer
Prior to Wonderful Machine, Craig was as an art buyer at Bank of America and worked in various production and asset management roles for ad agencies in the Philadelphia and Baltimore areas. When he’s not in the office, Craig enjoys hiking, making vegetarian sushi, riding his bike and spending time with his wife and son. His bucket list includes visiting a different national park every year.
Stacy SwiderskiSenior Photo Editor
Stacy grew up in the suburbs of New Jersey and currently resides in Philadelphia. She studied fine art and photography at Parsons School of Design and School of Visual Arts in New York City, and before joining Wonderful Machine as a photo editor, she taught photography classes at numerous colleges in New Jersey. Stacy is partial to tea and cheese and can make a mean apple pie.
Erika BlattSenior Marketing/PR Consultant
Erika came to Wonderful Machine after working as an on-air anchor/reporter in Lancaster, PA and as a host on MyNEWPhilly.com. When she's not working to get our photographers in front of new clients, she loves the beach, decorating her new home, smelling the roses and mixing up eccentric cocktails to indulge in on the weekends!
A native of Drexel Hill, PA Julia 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. When she’s not in the office Julia is either sharpening her cooking skills, beating her friends at music trivia or enjoying the outdoors.
Matt LanderAssociate Producer
Matt is our resident green thumb and co-owned an organic vegetable farm to prove it. He almost won a corn on the cob-eating contest, but didn’t have the stomach for it. Before all that, Matt grew up right outside of Philadelphia, and then studied communications at West Chester University. On the weekends, you might find him organizing, drawing, playing soccer or lamenting the end of his competitive eating career.
Claire McHaleAssociate Producer/Publicist
Claire was raised just outside of Philly and is a graduate of Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington D.C. Prior to joining our team, she worked at an advertising and production company tackling everything from shoot production to social media. In her free time, you can find her reading or working on a documentary about her neighborhood’s boxing community.
Mellisa grew up right outside Philly, in Aston, PA. She studied Creative Writing and Communications at Temple University with a minor in Spanish. Before coming to WM, Mellisa worked in marketing and recently road-tripped around Iceland. When not at work you can find Mellisa playing with her dogs Bailey and Layla, strumming her guitar, training her Pokémon or practicing Jedi mind tricks.
After growing up in the Philly suburbs, Sarah moved to the Big Apple and studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Armed with her AAS in Photography and BS in Advertising & Marketing, she took on the New York fashion industry and produced shows around the globe. She brings with her a treasure trove of marketing and advertising experience. Sarah’s also attended nearly 300 concerts and has 28 tattoos, and in her free time she enjoys lounging on the beach, reading up on mythical creatures, and crushing it at the mini golf course.
Alyssa is our worldwide traveler. Originally hailing from the City of Saints, she spent her childhood in seven different countries. If that’s not impressive enough, Alyssa can also fluently speak four languages. She received her BA in English and Literature from McGill before heading overseas to pursue her MA in Publishing at City University London. On the weekends you can find Alyssa golfing, hiking, reading a good fiction book, or cooking Italian food.
Quincy SmithAssistant Photo Editor
Quincy grew up in Abington, PA and attended Drexel University where she received a dual major in marketing & entrepreneurship. Before coming to Wonderful Machine, she taught English in Madrid and worked in the marketing department for a financial planning firm in Philly. When not in the office you can find Quincy enjoying the outdoors or traveling the world. She loves running, yoga, hiking, skiing, surfing and playing with her toy poodle Daisy.
Thomas LawnAssistant Photo Editor
Thomas grew up on a boat in Sausalito, California. After a childhood of fishing and Angel Island getaways, he studied photography on dry land at the City College of San Francisco. While living on the West Coast, he worked as a painter, café manager, photographer, and video game community manager. Thomas left the Bay Area startup scene for Portland, Oregon, and recently made the move to Philadelphia. When he’s not playing with his pet cats, he can be found cycling or baking his own San Francisco-style sourdough bread.
Steve KoffelAssistant Photo Editor
Born and raised in Warminster, PA, Steve joined us at Wonderful Machine after working as an Enrollment Strategist for a private school. Steve’s a graduate of Eastern University with a degree in Communication Studies. In his spare time, you can find Steve plotting his next cross-country road trip.

Molly GlynnOffice Manager
Originally from Trumbull, CT Molly lived in Boston and Richmond before settling in Philly. Prior to joining Wonderful Machine, she earned her BA in Photography from Drexel University and worked for several retail photographers. A former competitive figure skater, Molly was voted most likely to win Jeopardy in high school and often misses her family’s puppy, Brody. When she’s not heading up and down the east coast, visiting family, you can find Molly wandering through museums, continuing her quest to find the world’s best dumplings, and working on a year-long cyanotype project.
Katie KellerAssociate Producer
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 on video production and went on to earn her degree 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. And although she really misses her German Shepherd, Cobe, Katie’s dream is to swim alongside sea turtles in the sparkling waters of the Caribbean.
Andrew PrietoAssociate Producer
Andrew was raised in Langhorne, PA and studied Telecommunications and Business at Penn State University. Prior to joining us at Wonderful Machine, he worked in IT recruitment. An avid sports fan, Andrew closely follows Philly sports teams and plays basketball and baseball in his free time. When he isn’t at work, you can find Andrew hanging out with his dogs, Zoe and Winnie, or watching The Office.
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 over 20 years working as a professional photographer. Specializing in magazine portraiture, he shot over 100 assignments a year until 2010 (when Wonderful Machine became a full-time job). When he isn't busy working with his staff or interacting with photographers, you can find him walking with Tilly, reading biographies or relaxing with his family.
Tilly is Bill and Adrienne’s lovable black lab. Apart from being an all-around good dog, her job description includes snoozing on the couch and inspecting trash cans around the office. She can also be found eating bananas at 7-Eleven, chewing on sticks, or playing fetch (she can carry 3 sticks at a time).
