Meet the team

When life gives us lemons, we make creative juices

Just like all of our favorite TV shows as a kid, we believe everything comes down to having a well-balanced team. Be it Rocket Power, Captain Planet, or any comic book squad — you have to know your strengths and play into them. Our team is made up of millennial media connoisseurs and we all work across mediums to make internal departments within our creative family.

Jessica Hagerty

President | Operations Director

Don’t let my business education background fool you, I have considered myself an artist since age 4. That was the year I colored in my entire bedroom carpet with a magic marker. It looked fantastic, and my mom was thrilled. Answers to some frequently asked questions: I’m 6’1” tall. No, I’ve never played basketball. Nope, not volleyball either.

Adam Weber

Growth Director | Co-Founder

I am a multi-purpose media production addict who has specialized in copywriting, video production, audio production, front-end web development, digital advertising, media planning, and any other role you can think of in regards to making intangible things using software. I also like to be creative by writing songs with my band Integrow and making delectable craft homebrews in my free time.

Austin Kolb

Video Director | Co-Founder

I am a musician, father, and light-hearted creative keeping the office spirit lively while overseeing every piece of art that is created behind these doors. I work day to day with our team of creatives to solve complex design challenges while holding our own work to the highest standard. On the off hours, you might find me biking on the trail with my family or jammin’ a show with the band.

Will Moore

Video Producer

I am a young, positive professional, always seeking to expand my knowledge of every facet of the digital landscape. My desire for the creative was born on stage, so I am continually seeking to recognize audiences and deliver messages that will captivate and entertain. I also love the spotlight! My dog is my muse, my family is my motivation, and I prefer to walk through life barefoot.

Michelle Rippentrop

Digital Account Coordinator

I’m a gal with a passion and knack for connecting people and building relationships. I love to challenge myself to help those around me thrive and exceed expectations. Let’s put it this way – I’ve competed in (and survived) an Ironman competition, jumped out of a plane (also survived), and I’m a middle child… so I know a thing or two about the importance of teamwork and surrounding yourself with a good support squad.

Ben Stokes

Full Stack Designer

In the words of the great Michigan designer Aaron Draplin, “Try to keep this stuff fun.” I try to apply that motto to every aspect of my life from my designs to my cartoon illustrations. It’s also easy to do when you got a son to play with and keep you young. If I’m not creating art you could probably find me at the disc golf course.

Garrette Daugherty

Visual Content Strategist

I have a true passion for typography, grids, illustration, and other tasty bits of graphic design. I’m a creative problem solver who carefully combines design and marketing ideas, resulting in well-formulated design solutions. If I’m not flexing my creative muscles, you can catch me on the soccer field coaching the world’s most awesome sport or at home having a movie night with my wife and son.

Josh Holder

Business Development

As a practitioner of yoga, I’m always able to go with the flow, but I’m making waves in Denver by way of Missouri. I specialize in bringing innovative marketing ideas to hard to market industries. When I’m not snowboarding or rock climbing, you can find me at the Kombucha tap in our office downtown.
