Brian Gerry

Search Engine Marketing Specialist

With future aspirations of world domination, Brian has begun his quest for power by commanding top Google page rankings, click-through rates and conversions for every one of his clients…

SEM Specialist Brian Gerry has seen it all—the high rises of New York, the beaches of California, the hipsters in Oregon, the maple syrup in Canada. All of this exposure to people, places and condiments during his childhood is likely what inspired Brian to formulate a plan to take over the world.

He wasn’t always so power-hungry. As a youngster, he’d aspired to the much simpler vocation of garbage man. He envisioned himself dressed in a clean white uniform, collecting refuse in a cool big truck that looked like a spaceship. Alas, at age 14, destiny made Brian a different employment offer in the form of furniture moving. Despite scratching a lot of stuff at first, Brian grew to love the job. But after high school, Cal State University lured him away from other people’s trash and treasures. There he earned his BA in Communications and launched a career as a Freelance Commercial Photographer.

As technology evolved, so too, did Brian’s skill and experience. From the Los Angeles Times to a variety of prominent agencies, Brian’s career evolved from Creative Director to Interactive Producer, while he amassed impressive portfolio clips and awards the way other people procure Buffalo Wings…with hunger, passion and by the basket-load.

With his weakness for gadgets and his love of computer monitors, it was simply inevitable that the often-cryptic and technical machinations of Google would appeal to him. Emboldened by the power of Google to drive traffic and the official certification that enabled him to steer, Brian at long last saw how he could gain world domination. He vowed to make every client’s website achieve top ranking, maximized click through rates, and optimized conversions, thus realizing his dream of taking over the ad world. (Oh, did we forget to mention that? It’s the AD world he wants to control, not the ACTUAL world.)

When he isn’t making customers like Yahoo, Lending Tree, and author Kurt Koontz more successful, Brian can be found hanging out with his wife Elisa and dog Bella, mountain biking, photographing, or secretly creating a Utopian society governed by him and his hero, Batman.

Chris Treccani

Owner

At age six, while his buddies’ were planning occupations in the cowboy and garbage man industries, Chris had his eye on a different career path…

In the mid-80s, one didn’t often encounter a 8-year-old boy begging his mom to enroll him in a calligraphy class at the local art college. Nor, was it common to bump into more than a handful of 11-year-olds with collections of business cards or single serve alcohol bottles simply because they enjoyed the graphics and the packaging (fortunately, not the contents). That is unless you’d met Chris Treccani. Chris was enthralled with graphic design at a tender age, even before he knew such a career existed.

Still, it would be some years before this Wisconsin native would commence with his chosen vocation. Instead, he’d blaze a trail with his first foray into employment, cutting the grass for his father’s John Deere dealership, a job he worked for two summers and enjoyed zero percent of the time.

At about 2mph on a riding mower, Chris recognized he was getting nowhere fast. So it was off to the University of Wisconsin—Stout (in a car, not on that mower) where he earned his BFA degree. Ready to fulfill that childhood dream and leave lawn mowing behind, Chris launched his graphic design career by launching his own freelance business, 3 Dog Design. (“Treccani” is Italian for “three dog.”) In addition to his flourishing freelance business, Chris teamed up with several design firms, where he created some of his most notable projects for Disney, Fox Interactive, and Callaway Golf.

Most recently, Chris noticed his design clients seemed always on the hunt for more expansive marketing services. Ever the innovator on the cutting-edge, Chris evolved 3 Dog Design into 3 Dog Creative, a virtual agency. Now, clients have a source for all their marketing through the collaborative talents of the pool of 3 Dog Creative’s seasoned pros. And Chris? When not designing, and in between hiking, camping, and hanging out with wife Adria, daughters Ashlyn, Alexa and Seren, as well as his three dogs, Shadow, Stella, and Shasta, he’s cutting the lawn at his own home—a job he enjoys nearly 100 percent of the time.

Brian Stewart

Lead Designer

He doesn’t fly, can’t see through lead and Kryptonite doesn’t do a thing for him, yet Brian’s clients recognize something “super” about his designs…

Those who’ve only seen Brian Stewart’s work but have never met the man envision him in a way that’s best described as heroic. They imagine him standing tall, a big “S” sewn on the chest of his shiny blue unitard, hands on his hips, a red cape flying behind him in the breeze while he travels through time and space, absorbing all that he sees. For not only is Brian a superhero when it comes to design, he is a master of observation, with a keen ability (some say super power) to see and be moved  by what he learns and observes, then intuitively, artfully creating design from these inspirations.

As far as we know, Brian had a typical American childhood. He grew up in the Midwest wholesomeness of a rural town in Wisconsin. He had a paper route. He attended college at the University of Wisconsin—Stout. Yet, this seemingly mild-mannered young man accomplished exceptional feats of academic achievement by earning a BFA and graduating magna cum laude with double honors in the Honors Program. Clearly there was more to Brian than he was revealing.

Despite a penchant for phone booths, Brian smoothly transitioned from college to career, working with advertising heavy hitters, Yamamoto Moss. With more than sixteen years in the design industry (most of them self-employed) Brian has compiled an impressive portfolio of work for such clients as Dell, 3M, Target, United Defense, General Mills, Ecolab, Greater Madison Area Chamber of Commerce, Musicnotes and Fargo Electronics, among many others.

Even though no one has ever seen Brian and Milton Glaser (one of the world’s most celebrated graphic designers) in one room at the same time, we’re accepting Brian’s claim that he wiles away his leisure time being dad to two exceptional children (it’s in the genes), woodworking, camping, and giving in to his weakness for his wife’s cooking. He’s also recently purchased a cabin in the Northwoods for what he claims is a “fortress of solitude at which I can unplug and unwind.” 

Trent Lin

Lead Developer

While Trent’s personal life appears to be a mystery, his skills as a web developer are widely known as the stuff of legends…

Like crop circles, Big Foot and a congress that gets things done, until recently, Web Developer Trent Lin was something of an urban legend. People said they’d met him, but their descriptions of him were always fuzzy and vague. “He just appeared one day, out of the blue,” explained one of Trent’s former clients. “He didn’t say much…just programmed our website, improved its functionality, and made it about 1000% easier for our customers to navigate. It was like magic. After that, he just…disappeared.”

Indeed, Trent is something of a man of mystery. We know he resides in Vancouver, Canada and that he has a degree in business along with web development certification and a Google Certified Partner Certificate. We know he worked in a consulting firm as a “web guy” a few years back. Vancouver residents claim to have seen someone matching his description slam dunking on basketball courts at local parks. There’s even some grainy footage of him striding through the woods, but the images are too blurred to know if it is indeed, Trent.

All we know for sure is that when someone needs a developer to build a user-friendly, search-optimized website from the ground up, it’s no mystery who they call—Trent Lin.

Jonas Kleiner

Digital Strategist

Parenting, reggae music, marketing, digital media, Les Paul guitars, Coen Bros. movies, tacos, drawing—Jonas Kleiner stretches himself in a so many ways every day, we’re thinking of nicknaming him Gumby. 

It’s apt that designer, media strategist and marketer, Jonas Kleiner, would be into Ashtanga Yoga. After all, one needs to be flexible and Gumby-esque if one is going to pursue as many interests as Jonas has throughout his life.

Take his career, for example. As a child, he aspired to be Bruce Lee, a truck driver, or a pro soccer player. (Technically, one of those is not a job but an actual person.) While those three “occupations” as a group are pretty incongruent, it’s interesting to note that Jonas didn’t come close to any of those careers. Instead, he earned his BFA in Fine Arts/Media Arts from the University of Arizona after which he pursued a career in…music. No wait…art. No, that’s not right. Marketing and media strategy. Ok, how about all of the above?

Offering digital design and branding services to clients that included many music industry heavyweights, Jonas managed to channel his design skills into an industry he loved, while simultaneously playing guitar with a band called Buck-O-Nine. (Can’t imagine the energy required to do all that. Even writing that sentence was exhausting.)

After a time, Jonas got married and began raising children, which hasn’t slowed him down at all. He still bends in a million directions, eating chips and guac one second while playing ukulele and practicing yoga the next (which has the potential to be very messy.) He’s launched and run several of his own agencies, while continuing to pursue his personal artistic development in visual arts and music and be a good father. And while all this multi-talented multi-tasking might seem overwhelming to others, to Jonas, it’s just part of life. He’s bendy like that.

Kris Decker

Copywriter

At age 7, after writing her critically acclaimed autobiography, Kris discovered the satisfaction derived from crafting well-written prose. A career emerged. Her parents still don’t “get” what she does…

Kris Decker’s parents never quite knew what to make of her. At age 4, she aspired to be an artist. At age 5, she discussed her past lives in great detail. She wrote her autobiography at 7, won a district wide essay contest at age 8, and routinely performed puppet shows for her siblings utilizing her socks. (Some say these groundbreaking performances predate Jim Henson’s work. Well, mostly Kris says that.) At any rate, her parents couldn’t quite come to grips with Kris’s…“creativity.” So they suggested she dial it back a bit. After all, she was scaring the dog and the neighbors were talking.

So Kris set out to be “normal.” She volunteered as a candy striper at the local hospital, worked at McDonalds through high school, then attended college at the University of Minnesota where she majored in English, a nice respectable choice. In 1981, she took a “copywriting” job at a catalog company with absolutely no idea what that entailed. What a discovery! Here was a job where weird thinking was encouraged; where she could use her extensive vocabulary of superlatives without fear of mockery. (“Dazzling,” “enchanting,” “resplendent!”) Here was a collective of creatives who secretly loved ads and commercials, just like her; a group who also shared quirky childhood tales of imaginary friends, sock puppets and experiments with Jell-O that went horribly wrong. At long last, she felt understood.

Kris spent the next sixteen years working for various ad agencies but eventually, the tedium of working with just one or two clients for years at a time made her feel as if her brain was being fed a constant lidocaine drip. Finally, in 1997, she struck out on her own, launching her freelance writing business, The Write Effect Unlimited. With clients like Thomas West, Ecolab, Target, and Amtrak (to name a few), Kris was free to explore a wide range of creative possibilities while building an impressive portfolio.

These days when she isn’t running 5Ks, working in her garden, or deluding herself pretending that George Clooney is secretly in love with her, she’s explaining to her parents what she actually does for a living. They still don’t get it.

Jeff Linwood

App Developer

There’s a reason why this highly intelligent software developer gets a little nervous watching “The Walking Dead.” And that reason is all in his head.

If the Zombie apocalypse happened tomorrow, the first place they’d go would be to Jeff Linwood’s house. That’s because the software developer has got to have one of the biggest and best brains in the country. In fact, we’re quite certain Stephen Hawking calls him for advice.

Of course, Jeff’s parents knew there was something special about him from the time he was a very wee lad. While other toddlers were singing along with a purple dinosaur, Jeff was developing an app that would simulate the resurrection of a T-Rex from extinction. Ok, we made that up, but seriously, he’s that’s smart and he loved computers from the time he was a kid.

After high school, Jeff took himself and his highly developed grey matter to Carnegie Mellon University, where he earned a BS in Chemical Engineering followed by an MS in Information Science from the University of Texas, Austin. (See what we mean?)

After he breezed through school, Jeff began developing mobile apps. He created apps like MapRhino, which is the "Are We There Yet?" app for families on road trips, as well as developed custom iOS and Android apps for startups, non-profits, enterprise customers, and government agencies. In addition, he teaches iPhone app development classes at the University of Texas—Austin. And in his spare time, he performs brain surgery and builds rockets for NASA. (Okay, we made that up too.)

However, he does run marathons and has finished one in almost all 50 states. Smart and fast? Good thing! Because, zombies!

Eric Jones

Video Production Artist

FADE IN: INTERIOR KITCHEN—DAY

A MOTHER sits with her young son at the kitchen table. He is 16, slouched back in his chair like a typical teen. She is kind and encouraging.

MOTHER: There’s just something special about you, Eric Jones, and don’t you ever forget it.

ERIC: Ah, Ma…

MOTHER: Don’t you “Ah, Ma” me. I knew from the day you fell off the back of that ATV when you were 9 and you survived being run over that you were destined to do great things. Now sit up straight, put your best foot forward and maybe someday, if you work hard enough, you’ll obtain a position working with an American computer animation film studio based in Emeryville, California that doesn’t yet exist creating CGI-animated feature films with technology that has not yet been invented…for example.

ERIC: Huh?

FADE to montage.

Eric as a teen, working in a hardware store, watering plants, then wrestling with an uncooperative hose, dousing himself and customers with water; Eric graduating from high school, packing up his tiny car, arriving at the campus of Tampa Technical College; Eric fishing, studying and cooking, then burning his dinner on a hotplate in his dorm room;  Eric graduating from college; packing up the same tiny car and driving into the city of Orlando; Eric presenting himself in suit and tie at a variety of businesses, first in Florida, then California as roughly ten years pass until the final scene, where we see him older and presumably wiser, entering the door of Voltine Media Video Film Production Company, where he is president of his own business.

FADE to office interior—daytime

Eric Jones sits surrounded by computer monitors and impressive technology when his office phone buzzes. Eric hits the intercom button.

ERIC: Yes?

FEMALE VOICE: Mr. Jones…John Lassiter from Pixar is on the line. Shall I put him through?

ERIC: Please do, Miss Moneypenny. After that, put in a call to my mother.

FEMALE VOICE: Yes, sir.

FADE TO BLACK.

Get to know us.

We’re an enthusiastic team of professionals committed to developing long-term relationships with our clients defined by mutual respect, courtesy, and a positive attitude. In the end, we don’t have to be besties, but it will definitely help if we like one another.
