As Director of Marketing & Business Development, Tyson handles the majority of incoming office calls, writes proposals, strategizes future projects, and oversees the delivery of marketing results for every CS Design Studios client. When asked about his favorite part about what he does, Tyson instantly refers to his love of helping others. When taking all those calls coming into the office, Tyson gives out a lot of free advice. When he gets a client or potential client calling in to inquire about CS building a website or deploying a new digital marketing strategy, he takes the time to not only answer their questions, but also to explain the current state of play online. That way they benefit from the conversation--whether they sign with CS Design Studios or not.
“It all comes back around. The high road may be uphill, but the view is a lot better. And it takes a team effort to deliver world-class value. In my heart of hearts I know that this is simply the finest team I've ever worked with.” --Tyson Torres
Michael’s dad moved him and his family here to Tucson with IBM computer company on a hot July day in 1978. His father was always bringing home the newest IBM technology, and Michael recalls everything from the original Atari game console, to the first IBM laptops, and 16MB hard drives coming out of his dad’s briefcase upon returning home. Michael had always had an interest in drafting, both architectural and mechanical, which he took classes for in high school; but during his senior year, Michael’s dad convinced him to take a computer class. This led to more computer classes in college, and later a career focused in IT.
By 1983, Michael began working in freelance programming, followed by monitoring accounting software, and later becoming CFO in Finance, Accounting, and IT for Tostino Coffee Roasters. In 2003 Michael formed his own company, Bright Solutions Inc, a Computer Support System service that provides support to home users and small businesses. In 2014 he switched gears into real estate as a Short Sale Negotiator.
Changes in the real estate market led Michael back to computers and he found his way to CS Design Studios. He recalls a meeting with CS founder, Wyatt Chambers, reigniting his interest in the world of computers. Now, Michael spends his days coordinating efforts between our team members and our clients to ensure projects are moving forward smoothly. He compiles spreadsheets, takes conference calls, and utilizes Salesforce for the administration and customization needed to make CS tick.
When asked about his favorite work project, Michael recalls both donning a hard hat to tour the Arizona Electric Power Cooperative’s power plant control room, and having a chance to learn the rich history and customs of the Pascua Yaqui Nation while working with them on their groundbreaking ETC program. “The diversity of CS Design Studios client base means that every new client brings a new chance to experience things you’ve never done or learned about before,” says Michael.
Reflecting on his time at CS Design Studios thus far, Michael admits that walking through the old western streets of Trail Dust Town and entering into the neon lit, Star Wars filled offices of CS Design Studios never gets old. The energy he feels in the office as everyone strives to make progress for clients is contagious and motivating every day. “The knowledge and camaraderie of the team makes me proud to be a part of it.” -- Michael Bright
Jason Dumont is the Director of Operations here at CS Design Studios. Before finding his way to CS, Jason worked in a variety of call centers and for a jewelry-finding distribution company where he managed their website, product listings and Search Engine Optimization.
Growing up, Jason knew he either wanted to be an actor or video game designer. He had the opportunity to take web design courses in high school and upon graduation, began taking computer programming courses at Pima Community College, where he learned the basis for the online programming languages he works with today. He received a certificate in computer programming from Pima Community College and later went back to school at the University of Phoenix to earn an Associate Degree in Web Design.
At a time when Jason was having difficulty finding freelance work, he was encouraged to put out his résumé to local web design companies. CS Design Studios reviewed Jason’s résumé, and the rest was history! Jason has been with CS Design Studios for over 5 years and wears many hats as Director of Operations. He is responsible for the overall success and failure of his team, whom he gives the utmost credit to. “As our Founder says, they don’t work FOR me, they work WITH me,” says Jason, and on top of his managerial responsibilities, Jason also works on programming projects. This means that he works on all of the projects assigned, whether it is front-end programming, responsive programming or content addition. Jason assists our Operations team with any and all aspects of each website project that comes to CS Design Studios.
When asked his favorite part about his job, Jason is quick to highlight his team: “I will freely admit that my position here at CS Design Studios is very challenging, but it is the people employed by the great company that is my absolute favorite part.” Next, he divulges the sense of accomplishment he feels when he is able to fully wrap his head around a difficult programming assignment, and lastly, he swells with pride each time a member of our team does something truly remarkable for a client. “Nothing beats these feelings I get when these things happen.” -- Jason Dumont

When Higinio was younger, he started making music on his home computer. In order to keep his computer working to make that music, he began teaching himself how to fix issues and build new computers when needed. It wasn’t until later on in life however, that he discovered digital marketing to be his true passion.
Before joining the CS team, Higinio completed a semester of Business at his local community college and a semester at Full Sail University for Audio Engineering. Following his educational experience, Higinio got started in tech support with a A+ certification and over time began freelancing and building websites. All self taught! This experience lead him to learn digital marketing in order to increase the value of the services he could offer. Higinio has worked for coupon code companies, social media influencers, and many local small businesses.
Higinio first worked for CS Design Studios as a subcontractor for a year before being given the opportunity to join the team full-time. Day to day, Higinio builds websites from a back-end and front design end, handles SEO work for clients, and implements digital marketing outside of client websites such as backlinks and local citation building; all to create an online presence for our client companies.
“I enjoy the work and seeing the results of that work benefiting the clients. It’s very rewarding to be able to help not just individuals but companies as a whole. I enjoy the challenge of helping them reach customers through SEO. With Google changing their algorithms all the time, the challenge in keeping up with that is what makes it all interesting. I also enjoy creating a new look for websites, I love doing anything that involves creativity. I look forward to continuing this line of work with CS.”
