About

Passion. Experience. Diligence.

Melissa Noriego and Andrew Brown first conceived of customstack while she worked for a local consulting firm serving nonprofits and he worked as a support technician/programmer for a local beverage distribution center. Andrew has served as Melissa’s editor for many grant writing and reporting projects focused on education, cultural history, and racial equity. With Andrew’s background in technology and his education in philosophy, they soon found that their individual fields complemented one another’s in surprising and synergistic ways. This made them eager to create their own firm, one that would effectively intersect their expertise with their respective interests.


Grant Award Total (03/13/2021): $982,542
