Curiously Loyal

Baggers are talented. Hardworking. And seriously curious. Get to know us.

Virginia Lewis

EVP, Client Services

What's in my bag?

“A Swiss army knife, so I have a solution to virtually any problem. A lemon, to make lemonade. A couple Band-Aids, paper clips, hand sanitizer and safety pins (I am a mom after all). A little sugar, lots of spice with just a touch of glitter (I like things that sparkle, they make me smile). All of these things are in my bag because I love to solve problems, I’m optimistic by nature, I like being the person people can count on, and I am compassionate, outspoken and generally happy.”

It isn’t easy being a full-time mom and a full-time VP of Operations, but Virginia not only pulls it off – she excels at both. As our VP, Virginia provides operational leadership, accountability, strategy and vision to ensure the successful and profitable delivery of world-class integrated marketing programs and projects. To that end, she’s also responsible for ensuring her operations team runs with optimal efficiency to provide kick-ass service to both internal and external clients. Boom. Before Brown Bag, Virginia served as President for an Interactive Marketing Agency. She graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Business Management.

Outside of work, Virginia loves soccer because she watches her kids play it ALL THE TIME. She also loves spending time her with her kids (see previous sentence), hanging out with her husband, running, reading, golf and red wine.

Scott Phillips

VP, Technology

What's in my bag?

“Curiosity and flexibility. I’m always interested in finding new tools and new ways to do things and I’m flexible enough to realize that there is seldom only one right way.”

Scott provides the overall leadership, vision, strategy, management, and accountability for Brown Bag’s technology team with an emphasis on developing a client service oriented IT organization. Or, as Scott puts it, he works with a lot of very bright people who design, build and fix things. Before Brown Bag, Scott worked for Clicksquared, Apogee interactive, MCI, and Verizon. Scott graduated with a Business degree from the University of Alabama and a Computer Information Sciences degree from Coleman College.

Outside of work, Scott enjoys photography, tennis, travel, and all things University of Alabama-related.

Sela Missirian

VP, Marketing and Business Development

What's in my bag?

"I have a fantastic social network and loads of curiosity and creativity to help people solve their marketing problems!"

Sela Missirian describes her role at Brown Bag in three words: sales and strategy. Anyone else would tell you she’s a quick-thinking, problem-solving, semi-omnipotent master strategist. Sadly, that title doesn’t fit on normal-sized business cards so her working title is VP, Marketing & Business Development. Before Brown Bag, Sela worked for several dynamic companies including S1 Technologies, Autodesk (formerly 3D/EYE), Moxie (formerly Engauge Digital) and Brown Bag. Yes, we said Brown Bag. After several years apart, Sela is back home and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Now, who’s crazy for not touching anything in her office since she left?

Sela graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Design from Cornell University. Her list of achievements include the pioneering of social media with big name-brands like AT&T and Food Lion, lecturing on digital marketing at Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business, working in Europe and Asia, earning a Certificate of Wines from the French Culinary Institute and a flair for Armenian cooking handed down from her mother. She also enjoys traveling and blogging about the good life.

 

Jerry Lewis

VP, Creative

What's in my bag?

"A competitive nature is in my bag. I'm a very involved, hands-on kind of guy who would rather be an active participant than sit on the sidelines and watch. This is evident at my job. And it's the experience I've gained by working with great people for many years."

Working on multiple projects while being in several places at once may seem impossible, but not for Jerry Lewis. Although he’s never admitted to having been cloned, how else do you explain his ability to successfully lead a creative department, attend countless meetings, field thousands of emails, teach design classes and coach about a dozen different sports? Okay, we’re not sure how he does it either, we’re just glad he does. During his tenure as a Creative Director, Jerry has worked on big name clients like Pfizer, Allergan, Bridgestone Sports, Precept, Carvel Ice Cream, E-Z-GO, and Piccadilly Cafeteria to name a few. He has also received ShowSouth, Addys, CTAM Awards and has had his work featured in Communication Arts and PRINT.

One glance into Jerry’s office is all it takes to realize he’s a huge Gator fan, which makes sense considering he graduated from the University of Florida (which also helps explain his love of jean shorts and tank tops. Just kidding, he would never wear a tank top.) Jerry is also an esteemed graduate of the Portfolio Center where, as mentioned before, he teaches design. Outside of work, he is a devoted husband and dad as well as an amazing golfer.

Doug Brown

President, Founder

What's in my bag?

Doug Brown? He’s not some faceless figurehead hiding in an office or out on a golf course. He’s always here and he’d love to talk your head off about what Brown Bag Marketing can do for your company’s growth. Or point out an article he just read about your industry. Or gab about marketing in general. Better grab a chair.

Doug comes from a business background. This is one of the many reasons he can relate to you and your company’s needs so well. He sets strategy and combines it with his extensive sales and marketing skills as well as an entrepreneurial spirit. The result? Effecting marketing strategies that help build your business. Imagine that.

His track record of building and leading successful marketing teams (from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies) speaks for itself. And when Doug started Brown Bag in 2002, he had clients already lined up to jump on board with his new venture.

Sarah Shields

Copywriter

What's in my bag?

I always have a great novel, a notebook, a few pens, some lipstick, various tea sachets, an insatiable need for knowledge, a ray or two of sunshine and some cat hair (because my cat likes to sleep in my bags).

Hard-working, bright and always smiling, Sarah has more than a positive attitude, she’s got a way with words –which is extremely handy since Brown Bag pays her for writing those words. The way Sarah sees it, every project is a story waiting to be told and we couldn’t agree more. Before Brown Bag, Sarah worked at Response Mine Interactive and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor of Arts in English. Outside of work, Sarah loves reading, traveling, hiking, binging on Netflix, drinking tea,eating great food and going on adventures, preferably the kind with hobbits.

Caroline Walters

Concierge

What's in my bag?

A pack of gum because I love onions, sunglasses because I have to spend time outside every day, a phone charger, because I’m really bad about closing out apps on my phone when I’m done using them, too many nail salon, juice places and bakery punch cards, and a wad of keys the size of Zimbabwe, because #alwaysprepared.

Since you never get a second chance to make a first impression, Caroline is our first choice for the role of Concierge. Quirky, witty and full of energy, Caroline is vital to Brown Bag’s daily operations and always has the answer you’re looking for. Caroline started out as an intern here at Brown Bag and attended Furman University where she graduated with a degree in Communications Studies.

Outside of work, Caroline loves everything water related. She’s a lifeguard and PADI certified scuba diver, is good with boats and loves taking her friends out on the lake.

Ansley Ponder

Executive Assistant

What's in my bag?

I've got headphones, extra clothes and plenty of snacks. Headphones because music keeps me going, the change of clothes so I'm always prepared for what's next, and the snacks – well, let's face it, no one wants to be hangry!

The Tonto to Doug Brown’s Lone Ranger, Ansley is the ever-helpful, wise, grounded and resourceful assistant who often saves the day. As Executive Assistant, Ansley plans schedules, schedules meetings and is vital to maintaining the sanity of those around her. Before Brown Bag, Ansley worked as a Marketing Coordinator and graduated from GCSU with a degree in Mass communication.Outside of work, Ansley loves exercising, cooking, exploring the outdoors, mentoring high school students and spending time with friends and family.

Seth Skinner

Project Manager

What's in my bag?

Only the essentials. Computer, pens, notepad, headphones, Sour Punch straws, guitar strings, and miscellaneous cables.

When Seth started at Brown Bag, there were three things we noticed right away: he’s always on time, on budget and on point. With a keen eye for detail and a desire to excel, Seth isn’t afraid to jump into the middle of the fray when he sees an opportunity to lend a helping hand or make something better. Before Brown Bag, Seth worked for My Friend’s Nephew. Seth graduated from University of North Georgia with a degree in Marketing.

Outside of work, Seth enjoys spending time with his family, traveling (especially London), playing multiple instruments and serving as the music director for his church band every Sunday.

Nicole Laster

Sales Operations Coordinator

What's in my bag?

“Headphones for listening to TED talks and my top 40 playlist, car keys, because I’m always ready to rev up my creative engine, and a FSU koozie because Atlanta is too hot not to have one on hand (Go Noles!).”

Enthusiastic, confident, and driven to succeed, Nicole is eager to take on any challenge. Whether she’s representing Brown Bag on social media platforms, qualifying or pitching a great business opportunity, Nicole is always on the go but gets maximum return on the time she spends.

Outside of work, Nicole enjoys playing Bocce Ball with her team Bocce Whip, trivia, hiking, and exploring the ins and outs of Atlanta.

Amanda Peterson

Project Manager

What's in my bag?

"My phone so that I always stay connected, pens to write down lists, and usually a snack or a cookie."

When it comes to Project Management, Amanda multitasks with the best of them. Assisting with daily tasks and interactions involving clients and all levels of communication, Amanda is essential to making sure important day to day tasks are handled efficiently and effectively. Before Brown Bag, Amanda worked as an Account Manager for Force Marketing.

Billy Derby

Senior Account Director

What's in my bag?

“I travel light with just a toothbrush and Tums, so I can take advantage of any opportunity that arises, and have the medicine to recover from the ride."

Hailing from the great state of Texas, Billy makes sure that his approach to marketing strategies is as outsized as his native state. Developing and managing marketing strategies, Billy does more than meet client expectations –he anticipates needs and identifies opportunities to maximize the impact of his client’s campaigns. In other words, he makes his clients very happy. Before starting at Brown Bag, Billy worked in sales and marketing at Pfizer, Inc., and graduated from Vanderbilt University with a degree in Chemistry.

Outside of work, Billy enjoys live music, hiking, driving fast cars, and being silly with his kids.

Nicole Baird

Nicole is the definition of grace under pressure coolly and effectively managing client campaigns and projects, facilitating communication and even lending coworkers a hand when things get crazy. A true asset to the team, Nicole’s projects always come through on time and within budget. Before Brown Bag, Nicole worked for Otis Elevator and graduated Cum Laude from the University of Georgia with a degree in Marketing.

Kate Ray

"I have an assortment of cameras to document everything around me, a library of resources to keep me up to date, a sketchbook to communicate ideas, and a bag of treats for the adorable paws that walk around the office."

Whether she’s diving into a project or searching for the best tacos in Atlanta, Kate doesn’t hold back in her daily pursuit of perfection. A team player with a positive attitude, Kate is great to work with and highly supportive of everyone around her.

What's in my bag?

“Any and everything. I like to be prepared for all types of situations.”

Equal parts integrator, communicator, problem solver, and professional cat herder, Amanda Hilyer is a quintessential problem solver and perfect Project Manager. The fact that lists touching Steven Tyler’s leg during a concert as one of her proudest achievements makes us love her even more. Before Brown Bag, Amanda spent time in resource and project management, handling big name clients like Coca-Cola, HBO, Delta, and more. She graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design with a degree in Fashion Design. 
Outside of work, Amanda enjoys spending time with her pug, Miss Coco Chanel, going to concerts, trying new beers, gardening, and all things Auburn football.

An expert at facilitating both client and team needs to get desired results, Laura coolly and efficiently gets the job done every single time. Before Brown Bag, Laura worked for LiquidHub and BKV. She graduated from Kennesaw State University with a degree in Integrated Global Communications.

Outside of work, Laura enjoys traveling, dancing, and working out.

Martha Barbieri

Senior Art Director

What's in my bag?

“Sharpies, Mom supplies, rogue Legos. If I could fit a coffee maker in there, I would. I carry a bag big enough to hold all of my essential tools but with a little extra room for anything inspiring that I might pick up along the way.”

Whether she’s concepting the next great campaign or furiously sketching out a new look for a client, Martha is determined to make the mundane more delightful. Before Brown Bag, Martha worked for Iconologic and more recently, Leap Communications. She graduated from American University with a degree in Graphic Design.

When she isn’t busy, Martha enjoys live music, exploring the city with her family, and gearing up to be an Atlanta United super fan.

Chris Stanfield

Account Director

What's in my bag?

“A pair of binoculars to see past what’s in front of me, a kaleidoscope to view different perspectives, a pen to connect the dots, and a camera to capture the moment when a plan comes together; dozens of annual reports, jelly beans to mark the path home, and headphones to drown out the noise.”

Curious, creative, and highly energetic, Chris has a simple but brilliant approach to business: “To grow your business, you’ve got to grow your client’s business first.” And he does exactly that, connecting business objectives, people and creative solutions in the most effective way possible to achieve real results.

Dedicated, passionate, and always willing to lend a helpful paw, Annie is a vital part of the Team. She’s always been best-of-breed (or breeds, in Annie’s case) when it comes to her job, whether it be sitting, staying, or greeting visitors. She takes great pride in being a champion catnapper and Brown Bag’s go-to motivator. Whether you’re looking for an afternoon pick-me-up or a mid-meeting break, a snuggle with Annie is just what the doctor ordered.

Outside of work, Annie enjoys elevator rides, chasing squirrels, long walks on the leash, sleeping, and hanging with her lab brother, Earl.

Thomas Moore

Copywriter

What's in my bag?

A pen and notebook to catch any and all ideas (even the bad ones, ‘cause they may turn out to be good). An endless desire to learn more about everything. And a towel, as it’s ‘the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.’

Like a wrangler of words instead of livestock, Thomas corals, coaxes and cares for his craft with the expertise of a seasoned wordsmith. Whether he’s penning a blog, writing a headline or producing the world’s cleverest concepts, Thomas is very good at what he does. Before Brown Bag, Thomas taught high school English and worked in corporate communications. He graduated from Georgia State University and has a Master’s in Creative Writing from the University of Edinburgh.

Kara Humphreys

Junior Designer

What's in my bag?

“My bag has a pocket—a pocketful of sunshine!”

How do you communicate an idea without words? Easy. Hire Kara, give her a Mac, then sit back and be amazed at the visual fireworks she produces on a daily basis. Described as “short & sweet with lots of talent,” it’s easy to see why Kara has quickly become a Brown Bag favorite. Before Brown Bag, Kara worked for Turner Broadcasting. She graduated magna cum laude from Savannah College of Art & Design.

Outside of work, Kara enjoys kayaking in her pink kayak, watching Netflix with her cat, Henry, crocheting (when Henry isn’t stealing the yarn), thrift stores, antiques and ice cream!

Kelley Lyness

Account Executive

What's in my bag?

“Floss, sunglasses and gloves. Floss, because I smile a lot and don’t want people to see me with food in my teeth, sunglasses, because our future is BRIGHT, and gloves, because it’s cold in here — and everywhere else. Always!”

With a tenacity rarely seen outside sports, Kelley formulates and executes winning plans that surpass client expectations like a Ferrari passing a Prius on the highway. Maybe it’s because she played NCAA college soccer for four years, but it’s easy to see the competitive edge Kelley brings to the table and fun to see her at work. Before Brown Bag, Kelley worked for PureRED Integrated Marketing and graduated from Young Harris College.

Outside of work, Kelley loves travelling, tennis, her Golden Doodle and cheering for the Braves with her family.

Ali Peecher

Project Manager

What's in my bag?

“In my bag I have 4 things: my dancin’ shoes, because life’s a dance you learn as you go, a bottle opener, because you should always be prepared to have a good time, a tiny notebook, because I must remember my big ideas, and my iPhone, because you never know when you’ll need to phone a friend.”

Well balanced and graceful under pressure, we’re not sure if Ali’s awesomeness is due to her previous life as a professional dancer or if that’s just who she is: a determined, extra-mile-goer who manages projects with great results. Before taking on her current position, Ali worked at Brown Bag as an intern. She also graduated Summa Cum Laude from Georgia State with a degree in Marketing.

Outside of work, Ali enjoys dancing, any destination involving water, a cold beer, Broadway musicals and learning.

Jason Kimbell

Account Supervisor

What's in my bag?

“In my bag, you’ll find a bottle of Crystal hot sauce because, well, life can always use more spice. You will also find a couple of Red Bulls, a Sharpie and an iPhone. Finally, there’s a Tupperware container full of tenacity and passion for great work. Clients and coworkers dip into this all the time. I have a lot to share.”

Equal parts problem-solver and innovator, Jason has a passion for success, especially when it’s related to his client’s business. Whether he’s solving an issue, creating an opportunity or participating in a BBQ competition, Jason takes every challenge seriously and is determined to succeed both for himself and those around him. Before coming to Brown Bag, Jason worked on big accounts for ad agencies in Atlanta and New Orleans and graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in Communications.

Trey Davis

Controller

What's in my bag?

“A tube (or tubes) of Chapstick®, an extra golf tee and a good sense of humor that makes crunching numbers fun.”

Whoever said there’s nothing funny about accounting never met Trey Davis. If they had, they’d find that a numbers guy can also have a witty sense of humor. Trey runs our finance department like a well-oiled machine, and he’s changing the accountant stereotype one joke at a time. Before Brown Bag, Trey worked for a public accounting firm as a staff accountant. He graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Accounting.

Outside the office, Trey enjoys wakeboarding, sports of all kinds, Georgia football, concerts, and craft beer.

Danny Cashin

Delivery Manager

What's in my bag?

“I got rid of my old bag and have a new one. This one is focused on keeping things simple.”

Danny actually got his start at Brown Bag years ago as an intern and worked his way up through the ranks. After several years of impressive work, Danny took an extended lunch break and wasn’t seen for several years. We now know he was actually on a walkabout, gathering invaluable experience from various sources before returning as a full-fledged Senior Project Manager. Danny graduated with a degree in Business Administration and Marketing from Spring Hill College.

Outside of Brown Bag, Danny enjoys spending time with his wife, Mary (a former Brown Bagger), their dog Lucia, watching the Braves, playing softball and messing around with his jeep.

Robert Francis

Project Manager

What's in my bag?

“A worn-in pair of cowboy boots; it takes experience to break in a pair of boots the same way it takes experience to learn the ins-and-outs of being an effective Project Manager.”

Like the well-weathered cowboy boots upon his feet, Robert is the real deal—that rare breed of Project Manager who, like a rodeo clown, isn’t afraid to throw himself into the middle of the action. Planning, organizing, motivating and controlling resources to achieve specific digital marketing goals isn’t easy, but Robert has it under control. Before Brown Bag, Robert worked for Swarm Agency and graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in History.

Outside of work, Robert enjoys lifting weights and playing golf.

Robert Mashburn

Director, Project Management

What's in my bag?

“A chill pill. A big bottle of chill pills (enough to share). Life can be stressful, but only if you let it. The same goes for work. Bobby McFerrin had it right.”

Quiet yet engaging, precise but laid-back, Robert may seem like an enigma wrapped in a riddle but his mission is simple: help clients succeed and do it in a way that makes it enjoyable for everyone involved. We’re happy to report, he excels at doing exactly that. Prior to taking on digital marketing here at Brown Bag, Robert had a career in journalism, managing newspaper sports departments from Atlanta to Abu Dhabi, and a successful tour running the project management group for another local interactive firm.

Outside of work, Robert enjoys food, wine, books, music and travel.

Kimmie Morgan

Operations Coordinator

What's in my bag?

“Crayons, a bracelet from Chuck-E-Cheese, a few Polly Pocket Dolls, protein shake, a wallet with no money in it, and some hand sanitizer (more for the fresh smell than the germ-killing)."

Kimmie helps manage our operations team and financial departments where she handles countless critical projects with the confidence and grace of a professional body builder. Coincidentally, Kimmie is an IFBB Professional Body Builder. Don’t let her bubbly personality fool you; she can crush you like a grape. Before Brown Bag, Kimmie worked for the Federal Reserve Bank and the AJC.

Outside of work, Kimmie splits her spare time between time killing it in the gym, crafting and carting her daughter to cheer practice.

Wendy Orleman

Senior Account Director

What's in my bag?

“iPhone, Chapstick, snacks for my kids and usually another bag (the nighttime-going-out-kind). I like to be prepared for plans to change at the last minute . . . kind of like my job.”

If Wendy could choose a super power she says it would be the power to fly. After seeing her in action, we’re pretty sure she already can.  Always on the go, Wendy is responsible for developing and executing marketing strategies to better meet her clients’ business goals. Prior to Brown Bag, Wendy worked in a wide variety of fields including B2B and B2C advertising for Grey Direct & Digital and non-profit fundraising for a number of clients in the healthcare, education and international relief verticals.  Wendy graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Political Science and Spanish.

Outside of work, Wendy enjoys traveling, cooking, football, hanging out with her husband and two kids, zip lining across canyons in Costa Rica and spending quality boat time at the lake on weekends.

Craig Ogle

Lead Software Developer

What's in my bag?

“I keep a stocked bag because I like to be prepared for anything. I try to be efficient so the bag is kept manageable.”

Craig is a man of the people, especially when it comes to the people he works with. In his own words, “I am here to do the good of the techies.” To this end, Craig has an effective methodology: he listens, recommends, and implements—then washes and repeats as necessary. Before Brown Bag, Craig spent the past 13 years working as Lead Engineer for a full-service marketing agency. He graduated from Clemson University with a Computer Engineering degree.

Outside of work, Craig is into hanging out with family and friends, good food, Clemson sports, working out at Primed, playing tennis, meeting new people and walking to wherever.

Andrew O’Mea

System Administrator

What's in my bag?

“I have my phone, laptop, label maker and Leatherman®. If you have a problem, I’m going to fix it!”

Statistically speaking, while many people are good at their jobs, less than five percent are truly great at them – Andrew falls into that elite category. Okay, that stat is totally made up, but we’re serious when we say Andrew is the real deal. As our Systems Administrator, Andrew expertly enhances end user experience via technical wizardry and backend systems administration. Before Brown Bag, Andrew worked for Apogee Interactive and attended Georgia State.

When he isn’t busy with work, Andrew enjoys festivals, lobster diving, astronomy, the range, and is a huge UGA/Atlanta Falcons fan.

Kevin Slocum

“My bag is full of all the essential IT guy emergency items.  Laptop, mini-router, cables, tool set, portable drives, headphones, Advil and who knows what else."

If you ever need someone with the ability to solve technical problems while simultaneously improving IT services and systems, Kevin is the perfect man for the job. However, we should mention that he already works here and we’re not letting him go without a fight. Before Brown Bag, Kevin worked for Apogee Interactive and graduated from Georgia State University with degrees in Communications and Philosophy.

Outside of work, Kevin is a sports and tech junkie with season tickets to the Falcons, Hawks and ATL United. He also enjoys tennis, video games and keeping up with the latest technology.

Taylor Cornelius

Junior UX Developer

What's in my bag?

“In my bag I have everything that I need to produce a great design: writing utensils, paper, computer, a hilarious button pin and, of course, a snack because I get hangry (hunger=angry).”

Although his title is UX Architect, we think Taylor is actually a sculptor in disguise. How else can you explain the way he deftly designs and builds the inner structures of Websites to create engaging, user-focused content that expertly caters to those it’s designed to reach? Before bringing his talents to Brown Bag, Taylor worked for Turner Broadcasting and graduated from Georgia State University with a degree in Fine Arts.

When he isn’t working, Taylor enjoys drawing, gaming, and making costumes.

A guru of mathematics and a master at movie quotes, Mike enjoys learning about, teaching, and creating solutions that satisfy customers’ needs. He’s also a skilled manager, veteran of IT departments and graduate from Miami University.

When he isn’t busy facilitating the usage of interactive technologies, Mike enjoys spending time with his family, playing cards, watching the Steelers, and – these are Mike’s words – doing nerdy things.

Evan Mullins

Lead Web Developer

What's in my bag?

“My bag is full of tricks.”

You don’t often run into people who are both driven and easy-going at the same time, but Evan is exactly that. From the creation of interactive Websites and mobile apps to his mastery of WordPress, Evan never ceases to amaze everyone around him with his ability to get the job done. Before Brown Bag, Evan worked as an Interactive Developer at Ogilvy & Mather and Brand Fever among others. He graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Digital Media.

Kelly Campbell

Talent Manager

What's in my bag?

“My journal of quotes, ideas, and scripture, as well as some lip gloss because I like to do everything with an extra bit of style and sass.”

Like a seasoned gold prospector from the Yukon, Kelly has a knack for spotting the difference between aptitude and Shinola, so to speak. An effective combination of sweet and determined, Kelly effectively networks and recruits the best of the best for various positions within each of Brown Bag’s departments. Before Brown Bag, Kelly was an Executive Recruiter for The Intersect Group.  She graduated with a degree in Intercultural Studies of Business and French from Wofford College where she was also a member of the women’s soccer team.

Kristin graduated from Georgia College & State University where she majored in Marketing and minored in Management.

When she isn’t in the office, Kristin enjoys exercising, shopping, going to the beach and anything that involves the outdoors.

Scott Bailey

Mobile Developer

What's in my bag?

“My bag consists of my MacBook, various phones and tablets for testing, a protein shake, and LOTS OF COFFEE!!

Scott graduated from the University of South Carolina Upstate with a degree in Computer Information Systems.

Rob Williams

Senior Application Developer

What's in my bag?

'Everything . . . it's a big bag!'

Although he describes his role as that of an Interactive Henchman, Rob is an affable curmudgeon whose role at Brown Bag is continuously expanding because he not only meets every challenge, he crushes them like an SEC team playing in the national championship. Before Brown Bag, Rob worked for Internet Gaming Inc., where he did UI design for online gaming. He also worked for Virtual Magic where he specialized in Web and Flash development. Rob has a degree from AIA in 3D Modeling and Animation and a degree from SPSU in Game Design and Development.

Outside of Brown Bag, Rob is into volleyball, old cars, and collecting lawn trolls.

Pauline Pellicer

Senior Art Director

What's in my bag?

"A koozie, because I like to keep things fresh."

If you think of a graphic designer as somebody that creates pretty-looking things that make the world a better place, then Pauline completely agrees with you. You see, Pauline has been creating pretty things for some time now and even though we’re not sure of her global impact, she is certainly having a positive effect here at Brown Bag. Before Brown Bag, Pauline worked at Coastal Living Magazine, American Cancer Society, The Reynolds Group and Sellier Design. Pauline graduated with a BA in Graphic Design from the University of Georgia.

Outside of work, Pauline likes touring Atlanta, checking out new restaurants, spending time with friends, cheering on her Bulldogs and anything involving sun and/or water. Her proudest moment was the time she went skydiving and lived to tell about it.

Mary Adams

Senior Account Supervisor

What's in my bag?

'In my bag you'll find a positive attitude and the desire to do great work.'

Although no one cared to admit it, something important has been missing from Brown Bag for the last couple of years; a sense of style, grace and professionalism that goes by the name of Mary Adams. Well guess what, we don’t have to admit anything because Mary is back! Yes, you heard correctly, Mary, a.k.a “Shipley,” has returned and is once again delivering knock-out marketing strategies to our clients. If you are wondering where she has been the last couple of years, Mary has been working for Partners + Napier but now she is back and we’re as thrilled as can be. Mary graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Communications.

Outside of work, Mary enjoys traveling, sailing, quail hunting and spending time with her family.

Liz Fusco

Associate Creative Director, Content

What's in my bag?

'Wipes, lipstick, Band-Aids, lollipops, iPhone, nail file, flash light and so on. I'm like a girl scout - always prepared for any emergency!'

Equal parts smart, creative, fun and determined – Liz is your prototypical, totally hip, Starbucks-coffee-drinking kind of mom with that sunny kind of disposition that makes her never boring to be around. As Account Director, Liz is like an amazing Ginsu knife expert, cutting through the clutter and coming up with original ideas in order to help her clients meet their goals. Before Brown Bag, Liz worked at Abovo Marketing Group and successfully ran her own copywriting and marketing business for ten years. Liz graduated from Vanderbilt University with a degree in English and Secondary Education.

Outside of work, Liz enjoys playing with her kids, vegetarian and vegan cooking, baking, running, boot camp, pilates, reading, live music, tequila and martinis (not at the same time!), and socializing with friends.
