Jonathan is a writer and creative director known for thoughtful and very effective work. He's also recognized as an excellent manager and client partner. A veteran of CP, Modernista!, Hill/Holliday, and Leonard/Monahan, his experience includes Four Seasons Resorts & Hotels, Product(RED), John Hancock, Emirates Airline, and Cole Haan. But he's most proud of his pro bono work. He's won most of the industry's top awards, and a twist contest in Mexico City when he was five.
Rachel's background includes advertising, marketing and public relations, and she draws upon all three disciplines to understand the role brands should play in social media. She's helped brands from Boston Ballet to Zipcar navigate their way through social waters. And she's been harnessing the power of social communities well before, well, social media. A certified yoga instructor, Rachel is probably most proud of her ability to do a perfect headstand on a surfboard.
Steve is a creative technologist who has created best-selling multi-media titles for Jeopardy and SNL, and has directed award-winning interactive projects for Red Bull, Warner Brothers, Atlantic Records, History Channel, Sony, A + E Television, Lifetime Entertainment and many others.

Linda has worn many hats in her career--marketer, analyst, chef, project manager. A licensed social worker, she was Executive Director of the Massachusetts 9/11 Fund, a not-for-profit founded to help New England families who lost loved ones on that terrible day. Her social worker skills help make her an extraordinarily good listener and empathetic thinker who can get inside people's heads. A tireless yogi, she also leads small tours to Italy, Spain and Cuba centered around food, wine and sustainability.
Kathy learned the art of strategic planning at such esteemed shops as Goodby Silverstein, Mullen and Arnold. She honed her considerable chops on accounts like truth, American Legacy Foundation, HUMMER, National Parks Foundation, and L.L. Bean, to name a few. Her incredible insights into human behaviour have helped garner Effies, Ogilvy, One Show, and CA awards. But she's probably more proud of the many skateboarding tricks her young son is mastering.
