The Team
OUR CORE

BARRY HARRIS

In work and in life, Barry has always pursued meaningful relationships with the client, the team and the individual. A food and wine enthusiast, he admires the well-crafted sentence, an adventurous path, the song of an unseen bird, and most of all spending time with his wife and daughter.

RACHEL HARRIS
PA / Assistant Copywriter
Always at the ready to assist with the ever-changing needs of the team, Rachel is our resident gopher. She is happiest when she is researching a project, organizing data and making lists. As an English Lit major she is a tinkerer of words and lover of language. She is passionate about the world of fanfiction and in her down time regularly contributes to online writing forums.
International Partners
Global production presents unique challenges and opportunities. Managing events abroad requires understanding cultures, customs and languages. With local resources on almost every continent (we’re still working on Antarctica) there’s very little we haven’t seen before. For the client, this means a painless and invaluable engagement.
