How We Got Our Name

You might be thinking the name Whispering Dragons is probably the most unique name for an IT Company. There is an interesting story behind that name.

The word Dragon is meant as inspiration for the owner, Jacob, as he wanted something to remind him why he is in this business and something to fall back on when times get tough. The word Whispering comes from Jacob’s is soft spoken voice, most people notice that right away when they meet him and he wanted to have a little fun with it. As for the S in dragons that is where the real meaning is. The S represents something more than just him. As Dragons is plural, he wanted a company where it was a family of people working together as the company develops. Rather it be from a community standpoint or from within Whispering Dragons.

Our Team

Jacob Lanthier

Managing Director & Founder of Whispering Dragons

What I bring to Whispering Dragons is the vision and the thought of creating a company that is home to many different people from around the world.  I am currently focusing on developing the Information Technology services aspect of the company where we bring trustworthy IT services to the local business of Phoenix, Arizona. This is where I specialize in Hardware repair where I have over 10 years of experience. I also bring an MBA from Florida Institute of Technology where I took a focus on project management as I wanted to understand the ins and outs of running a project based business.  I have plans to expand Whispering Dragons in the Entertainment sector and other aspect of technology fields over the next five years.

When I am not doing this I have a Great Dane that is a huge supporter of the company as she goes out exploring with me on the vast amount of hiking locations within Arizona. I also enjoy sports and kayaking and I am looking forward in getting back into Rock-climbing.  I am also an avid video gamer, where I enjoying the being part of the ever growing video game community.

Daniel Oquendo

Chief Technology Officer

Daniel Oquendo has always had a passion on computers and wanting to push them further to their limit. While growing up in Florida, he would be usually ahead of others when it came down to how to use the computer and proper use. Since then, Daniel has expanded his knowledge by coming out to Arizona for college where he learned off of like-minded individuals with passion in technology and gaming.

Since college, Daniel has worked with Jacob for a while to build a company to be that “something” out there, the need, the go-to for people while maintaining the care and passion that the core of the business represents. He has worked on various bits of sound engineer, podcasting, online broadcasting, and continues to learn business sense. To him, there is still knowledge to be learned in this industry before being “done” with learning and he will continue seeking it while utilizing that knowledge.
