Our Stories

We are nerds, rappers, first generation college graduates, coders, nationally ranked horseback riders, podcasters, helicopter pilots, hip hop dancers, mountaineers, and more. Together, we bring 205+ years of collective PR and marketing experience to the table from Edelman, OMD, and Fortune 500 brands.
