Senior Manager, Business Development

Jake hasn’t missed a University of Kentucky home football game since 2002, which is pretty impressive if you ask us. Speaking of sports, Jake coached Little League until he retired at the ripe old age of 22. He often juggles Social with…social while he works on business development and marketing support.


Kelsey likes to start her days with coffee before heading to her computer to work some editing magic. By creating silly music videos with her friends in middle school, Kelsey realized her passion for editing. Along with being a fabulous editor, Kelsey plays the violin, the piano, and too many sports to list. And she double majored in Spanish. Is there anything Kelsey can’t do?

VP, Business Affairs

Mandy is a firm believer in being prepared for anything, so she always keeps ice cream in the freezer and a valid passport on hand.

Don’t let this picture fool you; Cody is an experienced “jack-of-all-trades”. He works as a producer and client coordinator, but he’s also a member of the production crew and he regularly jumps in as an editor. When he’s free, Cody can also be found frequenting our ping pong table.

As a Producer, Sam spends her days keeping projects on track and clients happy. Although she appreciates Star Wars like many fellow employees, her first true love was Harry Potter. She has read every book at least 10 times and won’t hesitate to beat you in trivia. Although Hogwarts will always have a special place in her heart, Sam is now even more obsessed with her German Shepherd mix, Guinness. Oh – and if she’s grumpy, please provide with snacks.

VP, Senior Editor

Darren is 2nd biggest Disney expert (next to Walt, of course). As a kid, he was always fascinated with the classroom TV & VCR; he wanted to take them apart & see how they worked.

Legend has it that Wood founded Wrigley Media back in 1992 with only a 2 man team. Since then, he’s helped grow the company to a team of over 25. If there’s ever a casting for the role of Henry Clay, look no further than Wood, as he is a direct descendant of The Great Negotiator!

Senior Director, Aerial Services

Keeper & operator of our drone fleet, Jeb is also a National Guard Veteran. When he’s not flying, Jeb can regularly be found tinkering with gadgets & toys, making “improvements”. Example: He adjusted a Nerf gun to shoot 2X faster. Now it makes a revving sound and, trust us, it’s terrifying.
