Meet the partners.

Brian, Mary and Eric met in 1997 at a music festival near Yosemite. Within hours, they were conspiring to create things together.

As avid outdoor enthusiasts, they were committed to protecting the planet, having worked for organizations like Earth Island Institute, New Leaf Paper and Patagonia. Merging this devotion with their backgrounds in digital strategy, brand strategy, and creative team leadership, they were compelled to help purpose-driven brands reach more people, tell richer stories, and make a bigger impact than they ever had before.

Our HQ is based in beautiful Sausalito, California, with full time staff in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York City, and Portland, OR.
