Our team and what inspires them

Abby Gold
VP, Director of Video Production

I am inspired by my kids. Women leaders. My yoga practice. Norman Vaughan.

Amanda Kanaga
Account Director

I am inspired by the road less traveled and the people you have the privilege to meet along that journey; innovators who improve the world and humanity; entrepreneurial leaders who care about their employees and are great listeners; and successful people who give back and pay it forward.

Amy Boyd
Production Assistant

Books are a big inspiration for me. There’s always a story to be told and something to be learned. I love how people can draw different meanings from the same story.

Audrey Cannon
Video Editor

I’m inspired by every day occurrences – there’s always amazing stories just waiting to be told so long as you pay enough attention to the world around you.

Brenda Brody
SVP, Strategy/Client Services

The theater never fails to inspire me - the stage, any stage, from which experiences are created and audiences are moved. I am in awe of the talent and the discipline required to bring these experiences to life.

Caren Wilson
Senior Staff Accountant

Family inspires me.

Deb Talley
Chief Financial Officer

What inspires me most is being surrounded by family and friends. The warmth, laughter, and support make me believe anything is possible.

Ed Romanoff
CEO & Founder

I'm most inspired by people working together toward a common goal.

Joe Doyon
SVP, Digital & Client Strategy

I have been lucky enough to have a loving family, great personal and professional connections and diverse collaborations that inspire me on a daily basis. This also drives my curiosity to keep taking on new challenges.

Julie Hyde
Director of Production / Executive Producer

I’m inspired by what we do. There’s no better feeling than the first 20 seconds after a show has “kicked off” and you are in it. You’re about to witness in real time all the hard work and dedication of the last several months. It’s exhilarating and always inspires me to be proud of what we’ve accomplished and also say, what’s next?!

Justin Brands
Executive Assistant to CEO & Founder

I'm inspired by seeing someone leave their comfort zone to achieve something amazing.

Kevin Doyle
National Account Director

I'm inspired by a cohesive team where – by virtue of strong synergies and a common goal – the sum becomes greater than the individual parts.

Marisa Lichtenstein
Senior Director, National Accounts

My kids push me to stay focused and my husband reminds me of my personal goals. I think Dreams are inspiring. Dreams that people work towards their entire life such as travel, careers and family. Seeing people go after and achieve their dreams is beautiful and inspiring.

Ray Simon
Executive Vice President

I am inspired by making a difference-in both my personal and business life. And deciding what kind of a difference I want to make.

Ricky Reccia
Video Producer

I'm often inspired by innovation. I am so impressed with people who have the courage to forge their own path.

Sally Montgomery
VP, Production Accounting

Music has always inspired me, both as a listener and as a performer. I love the challenge of approaching a new piece, and the emotional connections that music creates, both within an ensemble and with an audience.

Sarah Kodner
Senior Producer

I find inspiration in the people around me, in the colleagues who work hard to get it done, whatever “it” is, in our clients, in the people of New York City, in family and our ability to remain close no matter how far away. It’s those connections that inspire me and make life worth living.

Shelley Tupper
EVP, Leadership Coach/Senior Strategist

So many things inspire me - seeing and learning new things, hearing a great piece of music, traveling to a place I’ve never been, nature, seeing an incredible sunrise, and my favorite: sun glistening on the water. I am inspired by people - I love hearing how I can help people achieve a goal, take on a new challenge and or be the happiest and best that they can be. I’m inspired by inspiring others to be their best selves!

Tara Litowsky
VP, Executive Producer

As for what inspires me? I could say the cliches of the beach or a museum, but let's be honest, who isn't inspired after 2 glasses of wine at your favorite watering hole?

Tiffany DeLeon
Senior Production Coordinator

From the geography to the people I meet along the way, traveling enriches my life, yet keeps me humble. It allows me to learn about others and myself. It leaves me with a sense of amazement and a desire to discover more, thus it wholly inspires me.
