Brendan has worked in customer facing roles for his entire professional career. As a founding member of Balsamiq’s Tech Support team, and the Support team Co-Lead, Brendan helps shape the policy and philosophy of Balsamiq’s Support communications.

He also thinks he is funny, despite evidence to the contrary.

Liz Green has had a passion for software and tech since she was young. While her studies were in the Marketing & Advertising field, she discovered her true calling for software support 10 years ago.

She joined Balsamiq in 2016 to help lead the Support and Olio teams. Staying close to customers and their journey brings her joy, but she's also comfortable wearing different hats. On any given day, you might find her troubleshooting payment issues, writing documentation, and running manual tests & QA.
