On the heels of bringing on board our new Director of Strategy Justin Cox, we’ve had ourselves a hiring spree in the name of growth and expansion. We’re proud to now call these nine fine folks Heaters. The SF Egotist gave them a shout-out as well.
Ken Hall, Associate Creative Director. Comes to Heat from Duncan/Channon where he killed it for 10 years on clients including StubHub, Hard Rock and Ritz Carlton. Ken has a love for hiking, traveling, opera and driving fast. He also has a completely reasonable commute from Santa Rosa where he lives with his wife and four kids. Not pictured.
Jenna Moeller, Art Director. Most recently hailing from McGarrah Jessee in Austin, Jenna comes to Heat with a strong belief in the craft of design. She enjoys gardening on her fire escape and playing “scratchie” lottos even though the most she’s ever won is $20.
Justin Visser, Senior Digital Producer. Previously with Goodby Silverstein, Justin is also the co-founder and CEO of a well-respected skateboard company called Blood Wizard. He once designed a shoe for Adidas and stars in the rad parody-gone-viral Fix Push.
Ashley Wurzel, Account Manager. Previously with DDB, Ashley lived on Clorox for years (well, she was on the account). Hailing from Colorado, she is a graduate of CU and a fan of the Broncos, Chipotle and Left Hand beer.
Sarah Behrens, Assistant Account Manager. Hailing from FCB West, Sarah is a Cowboys “fan” by marriage (poor girl), and a Texas A&M grad that loves the outdoors and good beer (Ommegang Hennepin is her favorite if pressed to choose). Not pictured.
Theo Olesen, Junior Writer. Previously an intern with literary leader McSweeney’s, Theo hails from Wesleyan and The Cooper Union School of Art. He believes L. Ron Hubbard is one of the biggest advertising geniuses of all time.
Tom Treadway, Production Designer, comes to Heat from the University of Oregon. Tom is a big fan of potstickers and claims that he knows how to knit and crochet.
Molly Reynolds, Account Coordinator, comes to Heat from the University of Colorado. This makes Molly the newest member of Heat’s Colorado alumni/perpetually-disappointed Buffs fan crew.
Chris Avery, Production Coordinator. Previously a first grade teacher, Chris has a background in recording and worked at One Union in SF and Purple Reign in LA. He once produced a track with Snoop Dogg, and in high school was one of the top 50 cross-country runners in California.
