Meet Our Agency Leadership
Stacy, our agency’s founder, has over eighteen years of leadership experience building global entertainment branding campaigns for top Fortune 500 companies and hundreds of brands. Her career started after receiving her BFA in Theater Production & Scenic Design from the University of Arizona. Acknowledged as an expert in the field, she has appeared on CNN and MSNBC; spoken at conferences around the globe from Germany to Beijing; and has been featured in Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, The Hollywood Reporter, Financial Times, The Economist, Brandweek, Advertising Age, Variety, B&C and Mediaweek amongst others. Originally from Texas, you will still hear her ya’ll as she gathers the team for strategy planning sessions. Like all true entrepreneurs, Stacy is an adventurer at her core – having sky dived, hang glided off bi-planes, swam with crocs while rafting the Zambezi in Africa, photographed grizzly bears in Alaska, trekked Mayan ruins in Belize, explored the ocean as an avid scuba diver, and who loves owning an advertising agency where she swims with a different type of Hollywood shark on a daily basis.
Michelle studied Business Management at OSU and received her B.A. in Communications and Media Studies at CSUDH. She fell in love with sports marketing during her career as a professional beach volleyball player… and living so close to Hollywood, her interests naturally expanded into entertainment marketing. As a former sponsored athlete, it is no surprise that sports are still a huge part of Michelle’s life. If she’s not outside playing tennis or beach volleyball you might find her hiking or snowboarding. In her downtime Michelle loves to curl up on the couch with her hubby and pooch watching her faves: Mr. Robot, Empire, The Grinder, Big Bang Theory, and Friends re-runs.
Though a Jersey girl at heart, Chelsea fell in love with Chicago while receiving her bachelor’s degree in Communications from Loyola University of Chicago. It was in the Windy City where she discovered the art of TV production and has been working in the entertainment industry ever since. Having a passion for entertainment both professionally and personally, you can usually spot her at a concert or movie theatre on the weekends. Since her move to LA, Chelsea’s been taking advantage of the weather, spending time outdoors hiking or at the beach. A shameless fan of celebrity gossip, you can also always find her catching up on the latest Kardashian scandal. While most people have to keep up with the Kardashians, the Kardashians have to keep up with her!
Ian is our sports guy, and as a Los Angeles native, a die-hard fan of our local teams – especially the Kings. If there is a major sporting event going on, he’s either there or watching it. And if you have a sports question, it’s likely he has the answer. Ian has a Bachelor’s of Communications from UCSB and Masters in English from UCI. His first job out of college was working at the Director’s Guild and his creativity and drive make him a natural fit for bouncing ideas and structuring strategic partnerships. When Ian’s not working he’s often found watching bands or listening to music, one of his favorite passions.
