Hannah Dow

 

Hannah Dow first came to Fixed Point right out of college. We aren’t entirely sure what Hannah did during her collegiate career (we’ve never seen a transcript) and we really don’t care because Hannah does very well the thing we need her to do: events. Hannah was intimately involved in some of our biggest events: “The God Delusion Debate,” The Edinburgh International Festival, The Oxford Museum of Natural History, and so on. Hannah is currently in her second tour of duty with us and lives in Birmingham with her husband, Will.Email Michael

Susan Elliot

 

A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Susan Elliot attended Furman University where she graduated with honors. Susan is responsible for our overseas operations and plays a key role in research. Fluent in French, she serves as our link to people who speak that language because, well, the rest of us don’t speak French. Susan has hobbies, but they are too numerous (or obscure) to enumerate.Email Susan

Ben Halbrooks

 

A native of Birmingham, Ben Halbrooks serves as Fixed Point’s Creative Media Director. He decided to join a Fixed Point Bible study on a lark while still in high school. Ben's involvement with Fixed Point progressed from there to volunteer, and then to that of intern. He graduated with honors from Rhodes College in 2007, where he studied Biology and Film and then joined our staff on a full time basis. His job entails everything from maintaining the website to editing film for Fixed Point productions. Ben is talented artistically and enjoys producing his own short films in his spare time. Some are even worth watching.Email Ben

Mike Murphy

 

Mike Murphy volunteers with Fixed Point as a Sales and Marketing Consultant.  He also acts as Larry's literary agent.  Mike is a graduate of Auburn University and the University of Alabama School of Law.  He and his wife Lindsay have four great kids and live in Birmingham.

Rebekah Page

 

Rebekah Page is our Bookkeeper. A native of Memphis, Tennessee, Bekah attended the University of Mississippi and graduated with a degree in Family and Consumer Sciences. We make no use of her knowledge of consumer sciences (we are not even sure what that is), but we leverage her organizational skills. She loves to spend time with her husband, Kaleb, and her son, James. Bekah's husband and her father are both dentists, hence her sparkling smile. She resides with her family in Tupelo.Email Bekah

Mary Laura Rogan

 

Mary Laura Rogan is a native of Vestavia Hills, Alabama and is a graduate of Samford University where she was named homecoming queen. At Fixed Point we don't recognize such elevated titles and simply call her "M.L." She has been involved with us since she was a sophomore in high school. As Mr. Taunton's secretary, she has a number of administrative duties that primarily involve keeping him organized and on time, and that, anyone can tell you, is no easy thing. So effective is ML that we have considered cloning her. Currently, however, we lack the resources to do so.Email Mary Laura

 

Michael Taunton

 

Michael Taunton has been a part of Fixed Point Foundation in one capacity or another all of his life.  The son of Fixed Point's executive director, Michael reflects a lot of his father's interests.  He graduated with honors from Samford University where he earned a degree in classical languages, and is now a recent graduate of Yale Law. Michael serves as a writer and developer for the Fixed Point FIX. Email Michael

 

Will Hill Tankersley

 

Will Hill Tankersley is outside General Counsel for Fixed Point Foundation.  He is also a partner at Balch & Bingham, LLP and is that firm's senior Intellectual Property (IP) litigator.  He founded and was the first Chairman of the Alabama State Bar Section for Intellectual Property.  Mr. Tankersley is one of the few intellectual property litigators in Alabama to take trademark, copyright, trade secret and computer cases to judgment or to be counsel in a (patent) Markman Hearing. He has over 23 years of experience and holds a Masters of Law in IP and Antitrust from New York University School of Law.  After college and before law school, Mr. Tankersley served as a Regular Army officer in the Infantry and Special Forces.  But it is primarily as a lawyer that Fixed Point uses him.
