Meet us for a “Happy Hour.”

The ideas are on us!

Amy Royster
Managing Director

Amy is a positive and creative business leader known for identifying opportunities and developing strategies. Loves: laughing with her family. Hates: the feel of cardboard.

Tonya Speciale
Creative Director

Tonya oversees the design and content teams at Ideabar Palm Beach. She’s known for her creative leadership, and “sparkles” 365 days a year. During her downtime, she loves spending time with her family.

Emily Nolan
Client Services & Strategic Engagements Director

An agency veteran who’s worked in New York, San Francisco and Berlin, Emily relishes learning about new industries and working with creatives who make her laugh. Snack? Pass the popcorn.

Dana Wardeh
Client Engagement & Digital Strategy Director
J. Gwen Berry
Director of Insights & Operations

To say Gwen is research-obsessed is an understatement. She digs through data with the determination of the long-distance runner she is. FYI: Gwen is a certified sommelier.

J.T. Brown
Director of Web + Interactive

Leads innovation, strategy, and execution of Ideabar’s web + interactive business.

Kevin Blandon
Art Director

A veteran of the agency life, Kevin brings artistic vision and precision to the Ideabar team. His weekends consist of CrossFit, family time, and walking and sketching his pit bull rescue, Bane.

Jorge Gomez
Art Director

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Tony Manzo
Client Engagement Manager
Marcela Sikora
Client Engagement Manager

A native of Brazil, Marcela loves welcoming clients to Happy Hours and sharing campaign successes and optimizations with them later. For fun? Beach volleyball and paddle boarding.

Staci Sturrock
Senior Content Editor & Copywriter

Brainstorming, beach volleyball and board games. Staci adores these things – and alliteration. Her favorite place to be is Route 66, with a Payday in hand and a Dr Pepper in the cup holder.

Mariel Rosenwasser
Senior Marketing Account Manager

Mariel is all about making an impact — at Ideabar, in the industry and her community. She’s recently taken up golf and tennis and stands ready to take a swing at brand-strategy challenges.

Ashley Fogg Schutz
Marketing Account Manager
Amy DeLuca
Marketing Account Manager
Jenna Lehtola
Senior Traffic Manager

Sharing ideas and collaborating with all the talented Ideabar team members is Jenna’s jam. Off the clock, she enjoys spending time with her family and watching scary movies.

Emily Butler
Front End Developer & Digital Designer
Jim Beriau
Senior Graphic Designer / Photographer

Ideabar’s in-house photographer not only makes clients look good –you should see his portraits of wildlife. A racquetball addict, Jim is a production workhorse, cranking out ads and e-blasts.

Daniel Sauceda
Graphic Designer

(。◕‿‿◕。)

Daniel has already won more Addy awards in his early twenties than many artists do in a lifetime. A photographer and videographer, Daniel may be quiet, but his work speaks volumes.

Tom Kirkpatrick
Graphic Designer

(つ◕◡◕ )つ

One of the newest talents to join Ideabar, Tom is soaking up new computer and design skills. He enjoys live music and basketball, and looks forward to New Year concerts at Red Rocks.

Jacquelin P. Garza
Senior Billing & Finance Analyst
Renata Maia de Needell
B2B & Market Research Analyst

For statistics-obsessed Renata, it’s all about finding the right numbers and using research to tell consumer stories. Her bucket list includes building a snowman and visiting the Scottish Highlands.

Catharine Strickler
Office Manager
Dan Nichols
Senior Digital Account Manager

“I like getting in the head of consumers,” says Dan, “and optimizing ads to make them compelling.” Dan makes a mean Sunday dinner and dreams of hiking the Grand Canyon.
