Hi there! I’m Dan, and I lead the team at Vivid Labs. My goal is to support each of our amazing team members as we grow and build world-class marketing and ad campaigns for our clients. I also spend a lot of time researching and publishing cutting-edge marketing strategies which our team is able to implement and test.

Outside of the “hands-on” work of the agency, my passion is using business as a tool to improve humanity. I work hard to ensure our client work and upcoming philanthropic initiatives reflect that passion in its full form, specifically in our global education-based work through Vivid Beginnings.

Hi, I’m Emily, and I’m a graphic designer. I design creative conversion-focused websites, sales pages, and funnels. I help our clients optimize their offers with the principles of design that keep customers moving toward the “buy” button while maintaining the spirit of each client’s unique brand. I have 14 years of experience in graphic design, and I specialize in creative, on-brand web design that turns my clients’ prospects into paying customers. 
When I’m not working, I love exploring new local restaurants and hanging out with my kids. We spend plenty of time at summer festivals, which are everywhere in my city. I have a black belt in taekwondo and spend most evenings training for the next level.

Hi I’m Angel, and I serve as the primary client liaison for project-based accounts. I help clients maximize their investment with solutions that are strategic but also practical and executable. My goal is to help clients ultimately generate more customers, higher sales and greater revenue by using various technologies to their full extent. I have over 20 years of experience in fast-paced, high-growth environments as well as in large, established organizations. I spent my early years in advertising sales, managing sales teams and I have developed many successful sales and marketing programs.

When I am not in my office, I enjoy spending time with my family. In the summer we always have weekend adventures and visit new places. I have a passion for traveling and exploring. When I am not seeking out a new adventure, you can find me curled up watching movies, in the kitchen cooking, or attending my children’s sporting events. I believe in working hard and taking advantage of enjoying life to its fullest.
