Jessica Spaulding, Account Executive/Social Media Director
has a bachelor's degree in Marketing from NMSU and a master's degree in coolness. She also has formal education in sports and retail marketing, but she wisely tossed all that aside to specialize in the development of effective social media marketing campaigns and outstanding client services.

Yvonne Rocha, Office Manager
is responsible for all billing and budgeting for the agency’s clientele. Rocha, who shares an uncanny resemblance to Salma Hayek, has a degree from Doña Ana Branch Community College, and also coordinates all co-op advertising claims on behalf of agency clients.

Theresa Montoya Basaldua, Graphic Designer
has some mad, creative skills (and a really, really long name - ED). While some of these skills came in the form of a bachelor of fine arts degree from NMSU, the rest she won in a bar fight against Chuck Norris.

Theresa is married to the best Mr. T impersonator ever with whom she is raising two future super heroes named Daniel and Ava.
Daniel Davenport, Digital Services Director
comes from the mountains of Ruidoso, NM. An avid snowboarder and former Marine, Daniel was hooked into computers ever since he played Oregon Trail. After dying of dysentery several times, he spent his junior- and high-school years learning everything he could about computers and all things geek. From custom cooling loops and PHP to the Creative Cloud, he has absorbed a very unhealthy amount of the Internet into his sub-conscious. When he is given a Monster and a keyboard, Daniel creates the bleeding edge of the web.
