Hallway Chats is a creative, collaborative project between Tara Claeys and Liam Dempsey. Independently of each other, Tara and Liam had been considering venturing into crafting a podcast to share with the WordPress community when Tara approached Liam with an idea that became Hallway Chats.
Based on the Virginia side of Washington, D.C., Tara Claeys is a wonderfully positive, energetic and dynamic marketing professional. She combines that with extensive design and development experience to produce custom websites and related marketing materials. She works closely with her clients to create effective, clean and personal communication platforms.
Outside of work, Tara is a runner, a cyclist, and a musical theater enthusiast.

Calling the suburbs of Philadelphia home, Liam Dempsey is a committed optimist. A communications designer and marketing consultant working in both print and web media, Liam weaves more than 15 years of experience into creating solutions that benefit clients in the US, UK and beyond. He’s a writer too – yet only seems to do so for hire of late.
Like Tara, Liam is a runner although he runs later in the day and for shorter distances than Tara. He’s a big fan of soccer and actively supports Arsenal Football Club. He’s a motorcyclist who rides his ’96 Vulcan Classic as often as life allows. He shares quirky observations on chickenmonkeydog.
After having moved to the UK in 2002, Liam started a freelance practice which grew into the small consultancy he runs today, LBDesign. Liam runs the Philly ‘burbs WordPress Meetup, which he co-founded in 2012. He’s also a former co-organizer of WordCamp US and WordCamp Philly.
