Pittsburgh native Jason fancies himself a golfer, but says he’s also a dad, and an honest and fair ads salesman, too. Having owned and operated two successful businesses in Gillette, he’s knowledgeable and experienced in business and delivering a quality customer service experience. Brand partners praise his genuine, no-nonsense approach... We dig his ability to promote products and services that garner results. Either way you slice it, he has a knack for creative strategy and applies his tactful thinking to align your customers to your business goals. When Jason’s not endearing brands to people, he’s delivering greatness and seeking out new opportunities to expand our reach.

Although not officially involved in the day-to-day operations of our creative brands, outside of the community news streams which she directs, it’s not uncommon for OC team members from every department to seek out Charity’s input and creative guidance. Having worked professionally in the news industry for well over a decade, and winning a hat trick of Wyoming Associated Press Newsperson of the Year awards to boot, she’s no stranger to fact-checking, storytelling and understanding the power and responsibility of influence. A strategic thinker and fast-acting problem solver, she has consulted on projects and crisis management innovations for top-tier clients across the local restaurant, brewery and energy industries, to name a few. She’s been instrumental in helping the agency grow, handling everything from HR to events and public relations. Charity is a helper and a doer, as well as a dog lover and an animal advocate.
She graduated from the Baltimore School for the Arts in Maryland, where she studied classical voice before finding her passion in news. She serves on the board of the Bell-Nob Swing for the Cure nonprofit, which provides financial aid to residents of Campbell County and northeast Wyoming who need a mammogram or diagnosis or are affected with breast cancer. She also contributes a quilt to the Wyoming Cares Cash Bash each year. She’s a fourth-generation Wyomingite who’s guaranteed to know someone in any room. When Charity is not immersed in news, she’s on a boat with her black lab Cash or creating wonders in her sewing room.
Adam joined the team just last year, and has been doing incredible work for our digital and social media clients since. He tells their story through photography, videography and creative writing, bringing a fresh sense of adventure and client inclusion to every project's brand. Perspective is a word he holds tight. An active learner, he’s always innovating new ways to build and strengthen content creation in order to tell a better story. “Learning is my kink,” he said. “There will never be a day where there is nothing to learn."
Jen spent her childhood writing stories. She’s spending her adulthood doing the same thing (thankfully) at OC. The Pittsburgh native grew up on the outskirts of Cincinnati dreaming of cowboys and moving out West. After graduating from Miami of Ohio, she spent a decade in advertising and the book industry in Portland before making her way to the Universities of Montana and Colorado, where she obtained two masters in creative non-fiction and fiction. She put her literary education to work as a collegiate instructor before becoming a news feature writer. Over the past 5 years, she’s won multiple state and national news awards writing for publications and magazines including the Wyoming Tribune Eagle, Jackson Hole News & Guide, Casper Star Tribune, Women in the Outdoors and Montana Living. She likes to dance in the office and drink wine (not in the office).
Candice thrives on working with purpose-driven entrepreneurs and businesses to help tell their stories through crafted design and user-friendly web experiences. With a BFA in graphic design from Montana State University, she brings over 14 years of experience in the professional services industry to OC, having previously worked as a corporate in-house designer for an award-winning professional services firm in Montana, where she spent four years crafting brands and websites for a variety of businesses, organizations and causes. When she’s not sketching logo concepts, polishing color palettes or geeking out over all things WordPress, you can find her helping her hubby on their cattle ranch in southern Campbell County—with their tween daughter and retired sled dog.
