Brandon Silverstein founded Impulse Development in September 2006. He designs and programs websites and web applications, all while managing the day-to-day operations of the business.
Brandon has been developing websites since 1996. His first website was a fan site for the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) men’s basketball team. He was a freelance web developer throughout college and graduated from UTEP in December 2004 with a computer science degree. After college, he worked at a local web design company for two years as a programmer, designer, and manager. He eventually grew tired of working for “the man” and decided to start his own business.
Brandon is a huge sports fan, has a witty sense of humor (according to himself), and enjoys playing Rock Band 2 during breaks at work. His favorite song to play is "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC, and he wishes the UTEP basketball team still used the song during pre-game introductions.

Andrew Hite is a computer nerd with a penchant for the interweb. He has worked professionally in the IT industry since the age of 17 and has risen from the lowly title of help-desk technician to accomplished programmer in just 7 short years.
Andrew began working with Brandon Silverstein at a local web design agency in August 2005 as a PHP developer. Shortly after Impulse Development opened its doors in late 2006, Andrew joined Brandon at Impulse Development as a Ruby on Rails programmer. A self-described "CSS ninja", Andrew handles all front-end development and most of the Ruby on Rails development for public websites.
While not programming, Andrew is a video game enthusiast, comic book nerd, and aspiring rock climber (he hasn't climbed anything taller than his own bed, but he will soon.) A firm believer in the work of director George A. Romero, Andrew also has a bullet-proof defense plan for the impending zombie apocalypse.
Lizette Porras is the newest member of the Impulse Development team. A 2007 advertising graduate from UT Austin, Lizette moved back to her hometown of El Paso, Texas and started her career at a large, local advertising agency. She decided to make the move to Impulse Development in May 2011, and we couldn't be more excited to welcome the genius that she so effortlessly exudes (her words.) As our account manager, Lizette is here to be a liaison between our developers and clients.
Lizette is a fan of good music, lover of pilates, admirer of fashion, and prefers herbal tea over coffee.
