WHO WE ARE.

Entertainment.  Retail.  Travel.  Publishing.  Government.  Education.   The places we’ve worked — let’s just say our parents, well, they’ve been known to boast.  And yes, it was sexy.  It was exciting.  It was fun.  We made a lot of money for some big, big companies.

But when we stopped to look around, we realized:  There’s so much exciting stuff out there with massive potential!

That’s where you come in:  You’ve followed your passion.  You’ve created the spark.  Let us help you build and fan the fire.

It's time to do things differently.

Marielle Henault

Design Snob | Strategic Thinker | Avid Hiker | World-Famous Knitter | Anglophile
Expertise: Brand Strategy | Integrated Planning | Franchise Management

Marielle cut her marketing teeth at a now-defunct music label just as Napster (!) and Google were taking over the world. She quickly decided it was a whole new age in entertainment and hopped to the other side to work for one of the very first internet grassroots marketing agencies. When she tired of the cold New York winters, she made her way across the country to sunny California, where she took her passion for marketing and brand management to the studios, working on some of the biggest global franchises for Warner Bros. and The Walt Disney Company — from Harry Potter to High School Musical.

 
Kelly Hur

Growing up in one of the most tech-savvy places -- Seoul, Korea -- it's no wonder Kelly's got her heart and mind in social and digital marketing.  After receiving her degrees in advertising and communication in D.C., she took a deep dive into the world of digital marketing, helping global luxury hospitality brands including J.W. Marriott, Park Hyatt, and Four Seasons expand their online presence and social footprints.  Curious about International Affairs and lured by K street power lunches, Kelly later joined The Embassy of the Republic of Korea where she closely worked with US government agencies, NGOs, and the press.  Kelly is passionate about sharing insights and big ideas not only with clients, but also with her graduate students at The Johns Hopkins University.
