Meet Our Team
The Elder Stats is a pretty extensive website, and it may come as a surprise that it was all built by just a couple of college-age guys. But passion can certainly take you far, and there's no doubt that we enjoy what we do. Here's a little more on who exactly we are and what we did to make The Elder Stats the service that you see before you today.
Tom is responsible for all of the programming that was required to make The Elder Stats fully functional. He is the only code developer on the team, and he handles all programming and tech-related aspects of building and maintaining the website. Conceiving the idea for The Elder Stats in late 2008 with the help of Xavier Corona, Tom launched the first version of the site in February 2009.
Currently a student at Johns Hopkins University, he still enjoys working on Web projects whenever time permits, and although his major of Biomedical Engineering doesn't quite relate to the building of websites, Web development is a hobby he's enjoyed for years — and one which he won't soon abandon.
Xavier is the go-to man for graphic design, and has worked with Tom on various Web projects for years. Most of the user interface on The Elder Stats was designed by him, and he always participates in the testing of prototype versions of the site and provides insight into decisions made on the implementation of new features.
Xavier has been with The Elder Stats since its conception in late 2008, and always participates in brainstorming sessions with Tom for designing new features and devising solutions to problems that arise during development. A huge gamer himself, Xavier acts as an advisor on what gamers are likely to appreciate, and thus greatly influences the structuring of many user-centric features, such as character profiles.
