Roxanne Darling

Roxanne Darling

Project Manager

Roxanne is the client-facing side of our partnership. She built her first database on FileMaker Pro 2 in 1986 and her first website in Claris HomePage back in 1997. She loves helping creative people shine online and is known for her ability to translate complex topics into easy-to-understand, actionable ideas. She is also a mindfulness coach and an artist, so she understands what it’s like to move in many directions, with many inner impulses. You can read Roxanne’s full bio over here at our parent company, Bare Feet Studios.

Shane Robinson

Shane Robinson

Programmer & System Admin

Shane’s first website was a database-enabled site, built back in 1996. Long before WordPress was launched in 2003, he was building sites “by hand.” It seems archaic now, but it was a terrific training ground for code. Shane handles the programming, WordPress installs, and hosting for our clients. He is a professional artist as well as a programmer and prefers to be the man behind the scenes, “making things work.” He’s a compulsive researcher and trouble-shooter, so, perfect to have on our team! As a Scorpio, he takes security seriously and skillfully. You can read Shane’s full bio over here at our parent company, Bare Feet Studios.

Our Story

Bare Feet Blogs is the website services division of Bare Feet Studios LLC and is based on the north shore of Maui. Shane initially founded the company (under a previous name) in Santa Fe, NM in 1996. In 2004, we re-formed as Bare Feet Studios and moved to Honolulu. We moved to Maui in 2011.

Shane graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree; I graduated from UC Berkeley with a Bachelor of Science degree. We both fell in love with the internet in the early 90’s and have built our business by being curious about trying new things. Until we get a video introduction posted here for you, please enjoy an afternoon walk with us. It’s episode 778 of our popular video podcast, Beach Walks with Rox, which we started way back in 2006.

We initially came up with the name, Bare Feet Studios, when we noticed the entire team sitting around the conference table discussing a new name, was shoeless. Bare Feet came to symbolize our overall message to our business clients: the internet is here to stay. Take off your shoes; get comfortable; we’ll show you around and help you stake a spot in this brilliantly connected universe.
