James Keichinger

James Keichinger 

Principal 

Leadership is essential for our business. Luckily for us, Blue Ocean has a captain who knows how to sail through any storm and find his way to calm waters. 

Meet James – the owner and founder of Blue Ocean Interactive Marketing Inc. He created our fantastic crew and got us all on board with the idea of becoming the best brand, strategy, design, and interactive firm in Calgary! 

With over 20 years in the industry, he has strong dedication to integrating tech, design and marketing skills which has allowed him to build both a solid clientelle and employee base. With his strategic view on the business and high tolerance for stupid questions, you can be sure that this ship will reach vast horizons! 

Piet Nutbey

Piet Nutbey 

Technical Director

Have you heard of a web developer who can ride a skateboard, BMX and play the guitar? Meet Piet – our Technical Director at Blue Ocean, who is so much more than that!

With over 25 years of experience, Piet is our go-to guy for everything related to our web development technologies. We trust him to make the final step on every web development project we work on – he is responsible for the testing, go-live process, analyzing and troubleshooting issues for our customers. He maintains our knowledge base and provides support in all fields of our work. 

You may not believe he is real, but he has been with Blue Ocean for over 10 years, and we are very happy to have him onboard! 

Jeanine Petit

Jeanine Petit

Director of Creative Services 

Always with a dark roast coffee in hand, in contrast with her bright personality – Jeanine is our Director of Creative Services! Her area of expertise is relationship building, and she is our "Big Ideas" gal when it comes to simplifying problems, finding solutions, offering end-to-end support, and providing the best possible client experience. 

She is our long-life creator who finds inspiration in helping small Calgary businesses start their digital presence from the ground up. And she does this so well that our clients love working with her! 

Outside of the office, she performs burlesque, enjoys true crime podcasts and chilling with her two adorable cats. Not necessarily in that order. Meow! 

Angie Tugade

Angie Tugade 

Front End Developer 

If you need someone to tell you the difference between good and bad coffee, go to Angie – our front- end developer! With over 12 years of experience in web development, Angie knows exactly how to mix up graphic design, technology, and programming to create amazing websites for our customers, providing the best user experience possible. 

She values growth, knowledge and self-respect and finds inspiration in the creative ideas that drive actual improvements on a website.  

When she is not at her desk, you can find her exploring new places, driving around the city, or finding new additions for her incredible toy collection.  

Sean Stapleton

Sean Stapleton

Programmer & Technical Support 

Not many companies can say that they have a nationally ranked amateur country singer in their team, who also create, update, and troubleshoot web applications. 

Meet Sean - our website support and application developer, who has many skills up his sleeve. His areas of expertise include programming with PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, HTML, CSS and more. His family is what is inspiring him to be the best at his job, and we can surely say that he is! 

Outside of work, Sean enjoys coding his own fun projects and bingeing on some Netflix, so if you need some great movie recommendations, you know who to go to.  

Lord Tapulao

Lord Tapulao 

Web Developer/Designer

Did you know that we have a Lord in our team? Yes, we are that special! 

Even though this is not his title, but his name, Lord is a talented web designer with an extensive Information Technology Background, who we value not only for his knowledge but also for his positive point of view in life! He is always smiling and joking around, but when things get serious, he will impress you with enviable technical skills in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Photoshop.

Lord finds inspiration in bringing clients’ ideas to reality, and since this is a primary part of his job, we can surely say that he is our web design wonder maker. In his free time, he plays guitar, bass, and drums, sings and even dances, but only when no one is watching. 

Saeideh Mardan

Saeideh Mardan 

Web Developer/Designer 

Attention everyone, we have a web and graphic design Jedi on board! 

Meet Saeideh – our web and graphic design specialist, whom we trust with important tasks related to branding, user experience design and development! When she is not working on clients’ design projects, she enjoys spending time in the mountains and gathering with friends. Courage, Empathy and Consistency are the top three things that Saeideh values the most, and she finds the room for practical creativity in her job to be the most inspiring part of the process. 

Saeideh is originally from Iran and studied Multimedia as a major in school. Part of her professional journey was going to lead her to finance, but luckily for us, she found her place not between digits and audits, but in doing what she loves, at Blue Ocean! 

Nitesh Pradhan

Nitesh Pradhan 

Full Stack Developer 

Shh! Don’t tell anybody, but we have a full stack developer that every team dreams of! 

Nitesh is our specialist for anything, and everything related to PHP, JQUERY, SQL DATABASE, HTML, BOOTSTRAP and more! He is always improving his skills by obtaining knowledge from the tech world, and smart coding is his specialty.  

With over 8 years of experience in the business, Nitesh can find his way through complicated project requirements, and always impress clients with his knowledge in database, graphic design, and user experience management.  

Outside of the office, Nitesh spends quality time with family and friends, plays cricket and snooker. We told you we have an A-team, didn’t we? 

Viktoria Denkova

Viktoria Denkova 

Digital Marketing Specialist 

If turning clients’ ideas into measurable results is to be considered a superpower, then we have a top-class digital marketing specialist in our team! 

Meet Viktoria – our go-to girl for all things digital. She is our marketing specialist, responsible for clients’ SEO content, PPC campaigns and social media presence. Viktoria finds inspiration in all the amazing personal stories and unique ideas behind every new brand or business she works with and is always looking for new ways to drive the best possible results for our clients. 

She prides herself to be a great cook, and you know, it is good to have one of those in the office in case a hungry client comes in.
