I started exploring cities and traveling at a really young age, inspired by my Grandfather, who had epic stories of the road from his time as a Broadway and traveling stage actor. I do now for work what I would do if I wasn’t working: get to know places inside and out. And, when I’m not working, I am lugging my wife and three daughters all over Denver and the western U.S.
A passion for compounding the value of marketing, business development and branding, has afforded me the opportunity to travel the globe and view the world through different lenses. Through my experiences I've learned that business is about doing MORE with LESS and business decisions are ultimately made based on competing satisfactions.
Vice President, Agency Services
My love of places and culture has been the theme of my career. A Louisiana native, I have worked in economic development since 2004 and been lucky to work on incredible teams with a passion for improving their place. I love to explore new places and seek out opportunities to experience nature, enjoy unique cuisines, and absorb local art. I’m excited to be part of the Atlas team collaborating with our account and creative teams to drive client results.
Associate Creative Director
My culinary and cultural curiosity has taken me to Japan, Colombia, Europe, Guatemala and all over the US, but I'm proud to call Denver my lifelong home. And thankfully, my career actually appreciates my child-like spirit of asking a lot of questions. I'm at my best when I get to dive in deep and really understand what makes a place unique. When I'm not in the office or traveling, you'll likely find me working in the garden or tinkering on our midcentury modern home.
My first memories were crafted on the islands of the Philippines and on the island of Guam but my family eventually immigrated and made new beginnings in the small town of Cheyenne, WY. After High School I went on to study design and photography in Denver and spent some time road tripping up and down the west coast. I landed my first job at a digital design agency in NYC where I spent 4 years working and exploring all that the east coast had to offer. From beach houses on Cape Cod and Fire Island to Chinatown bus rides to Boston and Washington DC, I fully enjoyed the east coast but ultimately decided to move back to Denver to balance out the big city chaos and to find new opportunities.
Junior Art Director
I recently moved back to Colorado, pursing my passion for all things design. Having both degrees in Business and Design, I strive to use my education and experience to solve everyday problems, and push beyond normal expectations. Good design begins with discipline, and the necessity to get inside a problem. For nine years, I served active duty in the Marine Corps, where I gained discipline and extensive experience solving problems around the globe. Atlas has been a great fit, a value-centric environment that allows me to push outside the normal limitations of design and advertising. I’m pleased to have roots planted again in Colorado where my wife and I can raise our daughter amongst family and friends.
As a former journalist, my past experience covering real estate, economic development and finance lends a unique perspective to the work I do at Atlas. That background is supplemented by my interest in experiencing new places. Originally from New Jersey, I’ve been lucky to spend time living across the country and the world—from Copenhagen, Denmark to New York City, the Nebraska Panhandle and now Denver. Outside of the office I enjoy fly fishing, skiing, exploring my newfound interest in climbing, and cheering on the New York Rangers.
Project Manager Account Supervisor
Born and raised in Akron Ohio, moving to Colorado was an experience I couldn’t wait to live. Loving everything outdoors, and not willing to give up the seasons, the mountains were a natural fit. Having worked in account service for 13 years, I have a passion for meeting new people and exploring new places and Atlas is the perfect catalyst for me to achieve this. As an organizational enthusiast, I enjoy keeping projects on track, developing strategic marketing plans and ensuring productivity.
Hailing from Northeast Ohio, I found the perfect place for me in this mountain state, and moved to Denver in 2002. I've been producing and managing successful web, video, and marketing / advertising projects for the last 15 years. I strive to have a career that makes me happy and fulfills my passion for travel, marketing, art, film, and video so working at Atlas is a great fit. I'm excited to share my passions and the Colorado mountains with my family, including a very enthusiastic and joyful two-year-old.
Originally a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, I moved to Colorado in 2004. I've fallen in love with the mountains and as much as I love my southern roots, Colorado has definitely become home. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Advertising from Louisiana State University and have over 15 years experience in the agency world as a print producer, project manager, and traffic manager. I'm passionate about creating order out of chaos, allowing my teams to create the best work possible for our clients. When I'm not at work, I'm cooking, hiking, snowboarding, or singing in my band.
Junior Media Planner
Born and raised in New Jersey, I called the east coast home for the majority of my life. Since then, I’ve been lucky to call two other cities home as well: Columbus, OH during college and now Denver, CO. Like the rest of my Atlas coworkers, I love to travel and see everything the world has to offer. Exploring and getting to know new cities has always been a passion of mine. At Atlas, I take pride in marketing communities around the US and enjoy learning what makes each one great. When I’m not busy at work, I’m enjoying the mountains, watching my favorite sports teams, or finding a new restaurant.
Having grown up in Colorado, I am one of the few natives at Atlas, and I pride myself on being an advocate for the Centennial State. Although not having moved far since childhood, I’ve journeyed to places far and wide, making my love of (new & unique) places a perfect addition to Atlas’ team of place marketing enthusiasts. Working in sales and marketing in a variety of industries for the past six years, my roles have varied, but the constant has always been the development of content – content for the web, for print campaigns, for agency and client blogs, social media campaigns, email marketing campaigns, and much more. With a passion for creating compelling content, acute attention to detail skills, and a love for engaging people through words, I really thrive as a writer, especially here at Atlas.
Business Development Manager
The West has always been a big part of my life. As a Colorado native, I grew up loving my home state, but yearned to travel west, so after high school, I attended Shidler College of Business at the University of Hawaii at Manoa where I studied International Business and Marketing. After four years in Hawaii, I felt the urge to progress with my career in San Francisco and then Los Angeles where I was hired to help relocating or expanding businesses recruit and relocate talent from across the country. Now, I’m back home in Colorado where I can apply my knowledge of relocation and attraction at the macro level, helping communities attract workforce and businesses. When I’m not focused on helping prospects find success, I enjoy hiking, snowboarding, traveling, reading and cycling!
My love for travel has taken me across the globe, but I'm proud to call Colorado my home state. With a passion for experiencing places, Atlas has made for a perfect fit. When in the office, you can find me writing content to engage prospective communities to really help them thrive.
Director of Operations
My love of travel and seeing new places and cultures began with my journey at 3 weeks old from Modesto, California to Boulder, Colorado where I was raised. I grew up exploring the mountains with winter snow skiing and hiking, water skiing in Utah, boogie boarding on the waves of the Pacific Ocean, and traveling for school athletic events or family gatherings throughout the USA. My exploration of the world as an adult created a profound impact on my heart and soul and instilled a compassion for all cultures. Sharing life with my husband, 3 daughters, other family and friends here in Colorado and all over the world has enriched my soul and prepared me to be a wife, mom, Yoga Instructor and Director of Operations for Atlas Advertising.
I am a proud Colorado native and love to travel. My parents loved to do long road trips when I was a kid, which led to me visiting all 48 mainland states! But the best part about traveling is being able to come home and see my Rockies there waiting for me! I love RV'ing around Colorado with my husband, daughter and two sons. Camping, hiking, mountain biking, and kayaking fill many weekends during the summer. I'm also an avid PC gamer, a karate student, a Crossfit lover and addicted to spin classes. At Atlas, I'm able to fuel my entrepreneurial spirit, while lending my experience in business and finance to help us stay on the right track.
From island hopping in Fiji to bungee jumping in New Zealand, my travels have almost always involved unique ways to experience the outdoors. I was originally attracted to leave the Midwest to start a life in Colorado from visiting the amazing ski areas and beautiful campus of University of Colorado Boulder where I attended college. When in the Atlas office, you can find me right in the details, creating new ways to keep the company organized and moving forward.
