Jack Maley, Creative Director, Copywriter

12 years at Time Inc and Time Life as copywriter and Director of Advertising, 5 years at Saatchi and Saatchi as Creative Director, started M3 in 1995.  Likes the Philadelphia Eagles, New York City life – but none of the sports teams –  and spending hours talking to his wife Jennifer about non-duality. (See her for all things fundraising:  jennifermccrea.com)  For more on Jack’s experience, click here.

beca
Rebecca Bolde, Motion Graphics, SFX
Rebecca is the quintessential digital diva:  a  3D-Motion Graphics-After Effects-Final Cut Pro designer who can, when necessary, go old school and actually draw.  This School of Visual Arts grad has a sharp eye for detail and a gifted instinct for design that moves the viewer and communicates the message.  With roots in very rural Hudson Valley, she flinches at the term ‘diva’ but tolerates it as long as we don’t make any farm jokes. (How do you take a pig to the hospital?  In a hambulance.)

Gregor Patterson, Flash programming, Mobile apps development
Flash programming and mobile apps development are Gregor’s specialities.  He’s an everyman-techie who can explain what’s going on with a piece of code and you actually understand what he’s saying.  Always on the cutting-edge of the next thing, Gregor’s a really-early adopter.  Oh, and he has ducks.

lexie
Lexie Kahanovitz, Copywriter
‘Ideas from beyond’ is what Lexie brings to the process.  Funny and quirky but always attention-grabbing and always on message.  In addition to working on yucks for Adult Swim guerilla creative artist Lexie has shot, produced and posted her surreal ideas on youtube (In the IKEA Bedroom IKEA Office Anxiety).

beth
Beth Klavir, Graphic Design
Beth’s love of design and ideation is evident throughout every part of her professional and personal life.  From her clean, compelling web designs to her eye-catching accoutrements, Beth combines strategy and simplicity for a powerful message.   Corporate logos and marks.  Dazzling powerpoint presentations and packaging graphics. Microsites.  She’s a calm, inquisitive professional who’s a delight to work with … and wears some of the coolest clothes you’ve ever seen, mostly black.

MEDIA________________________________

Darren Ernest, SEO/Social Media

PRODUCTION______________________

kris
Kris Brearton, Director of Photography
Kris’ talent behind the lens is evident in every shot he produces from shooting Kevin Bacon and Ed Norton for a elegant Sundance series to a hard-selling infomercial for Tigrent Inc. Adept with film, digital and the Red camera, Kris consistently delivers a beautiful picture and, at 6’4″, he can often just reach up to adjust the lights without waiting for a grip.  A real timesaver.

mike
Mike Shane, Producer
Renaissance man Mike – part high-end photographer, part production guy, part Staten Island good old boy – brings a “Yes I Can” attitude to everything he undertakes.  Creative, reliable, resourceful, he’s everything you want in a Producer.
