RICK MCGREGOR | Creative Director & Client Herder
Experience: I’m a graduate of Art Center College of Design. I have had a wonderful career that has taken me from being a freelancer, to an agency Art Director, to a corporate Marketing Director, to owning my own firm.
What I do: I’m a juggler. I juggle time, budgets, vendors and clients while striving for perfection.
Favorite thing I like to do at work: Struggling with a challenge and coming up with a fun solution to a problem.
Hobbies/Interests: I have too many! I love challenging myself to learn new skills and while tinkering with old things. I race old sail boats, I drive an old sports car and I ride old motorcycles.
Family Info: My wife Kristen of over 28 years is a professor and educator, my oldest daughter Victoria is a Purdue Graduate working in marketing for a major produce company, and my second daughter Anastasia will soon graduate from Business School at the University of Delaware and will be working for a major clothing retailer after graduation.
Best Vacation(s) Ever: Climbing ancient pyramids with my family in Mexico, my first summit of Mt. Whitney, fly fishing in Montana and sailing in the British Virgin Islands.
Turn Ons: Passionate business owners, acoustic performances from really good singer/songwriters, and sailing in 20 knot winds on a stormy ocean.
Turn Offs: People who are not courteous and respectful of others.
What do you want to be when you grow up: I’m very lucky… I am doing what I have always wanted to… be creative.
BLAED SPENCE | Copywriter AKA Word Nerd
What I do: You might say I put words in people’s mouths.
Special Talent: I can type almost as fast as I can talk (which is saying something)
Favorite thing I like to do at work: Remodeling! I love taking copy that’s old and out-of-date and making it shiny and new.
Hobbies/Interests: Muay Thai. Running. Dance. Meditation. Anything that puts me outdoors and moving!
Family Info: I hail from the People’s Republic of Berkeley and was raised in a family of Celtic-Canadian scientists, artists, and musicians. (Yeah. That pretty much explains it.) I’m married to my best friend and soul mate, Colin (also a writer), who every day helps me grow to my fullest spiritual and creative potential. We’re child-free by choice(!). But Colin’s a cat person, so we share our home with a super-social, awesome black cat named Morpheus.
What do you want to be when you grow up: A quirky but classy crone who’s lived such a vivid, all-in, no-holds-barred life that it resembles a work of art.
