Team Bios

  • Founder & Creative Director
    Tom Geary
    Founder & Creative Director
    Tom’s writing career began at the tender age of ten, publishing a tiny newspaper in Fiji that cost 10 cents to produce. Selling them for 10 cents each didn’t rake in the profits, but he caught the entrepreneurial bug, and hasn’t recovered since.
  • Partner & Director of Video Production
    John Buscaglia
    Partner & Director of Video Production
    John’s worked in video longer than some of our interns have been alive. His past two decades have been spent editing national TV spots for the likes of Taco Bell, Levi’s, Coors, Pillsbury...the list goes on. When he’s not working his sweet editing moves, he’s playing tennis or dabbling in AI.
  • Writer & Content Lead
    Ashley Villarreal
    Writer & Content Lead
    Ashley has worked as a writer for over 10 years. She began her career as a freelance journalist in New York, covering local politics, healthcare and the arts.
