🌞☕🎧 Lauren is our dynamic and imaginative Creative Director hailing from the Pacific Northwest. Her boundless energy and enthusiasm bring a spark to every project she touches. With an eye for detail and a knack for organization, Lauren oversees the daily operations of our Seattle studios while also playing a pivotal role in all aspects of production.

☕️🦖👨🏻🍳 As a Master Trainer, Jordan has always had a strong passion for both entertaining and informing those around him. Whether he is performing a stand-up comedy routine, delivering an impassioned speech about marine life conservation, or presenting on modern technologies, there is nothing Jordan enjoys more than sharing his love for interpersonal communication with others. When he’s not live in front of an audience or working on his next presentation, Jordan spends his time in the kitchen cooking, binging dinosaur documentaries, and hanging out with his giant Great Dane puppy, Tarzan!
🐕⛰️🍷 Nora is a Seattle native with an extensive background in the world of events. As a Senior Event Designer, she works with our clients across the globe to bring their events to life, whether that be through a computer screen or in real life.

🐶🧙♀️🎭 Anna is one of our team's highly caffeinated Event Designers.

She’s also a self-proclaimed wizard that loves game nights, snowboarding, binging animes and k-dramas, and playing with her crazy corgi, Simba.
🎥☕🏂 Matt is a coffee-fueled video creative passionate about capturing stories of others through their hobbies and professions, tackling many aspects like logistics, location scouting, lighting, camera operation, and editing. In his free time, he's either active running, working out, taking yoga classes, snowboarding, and longboarding or he's an absolute homebody staying in bed watching anime all day, nerding out on researching camera/computer hardware, and doom-scrolling through social media.
🧈🖋🐱 Adrianna is a Graphic Designer with her finger on the pulse. She loves to explore new mediums and trends and her years of experience as a creative allow her to create compelling visuals for any project, no matter how big or small. In her free time, Adrianna is a serial hobbyist. There’s no pastime that's safe. Anything from tattooing to chicken farming, there’s an Adrianna behind it thinking “I could do that.”
