With over 25 years of both traditional and new media experience, Mike's insights into the forever changing media world have become a vital resource to business owners and marketing directors. His background includes copywriting, project management, and production development for advertising agencies in addition to sales and marketing leadership at KVVU-TV Channel 5 and KLAS-TV Channel 8 in Las Vegas.

Although born in Las Vegas, Mike spent 10 years in Florida and became very fond of the beach, the sea, and sailing. Since moving back home to Las Vegas in 1990, he manages to get to the California coast every once in a while to catch a little wind. Mike's other ADTACK title is CSA, or Chief Sail Adjuster. One of his mottos: "When you can't change the direction of the wind, adjust your sails." Mike is an excellent Captain and routinely adjusts his sails (and those of his clients) for optimum efficiency, speed, direction, and an extraordinary destination. Some also say he looks a bit like Captain Jack Sparrow...

Riana is a Las Vegas native, born and raised. She has envisioned herself in the advertising industry since she was a kid at the table with a bowl of Fruity Pebbles. She was about 6 when she told her mom that she wanted to "draw and color cereal boxes" when she grew up. Much of her advertising experience comes from her 7 years at MGM Resorts International, in the Corporate Advertising department, supervising mainly the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino and MGM Grand Detroit accounts. When Riana isn't working, she can be found in left center on the softball field, or in the driveway playing baseball with her husband and son.
Riana's passion for foam darts began with... dodging them. She quickly learned that to survive the wars at home, she had to join them. Starting with a 3-pack of foam dart shooters with keychain clips then moving up to battery-operated semi-automatics, Riana and her son often hide around the house to ambush each other as well as unsuspecting arriving friends. After learning in her interview that ADTACK occasionally has foam dart wars, she came prepared on her first day with a brand new, loaded shooter, in case she was ADTACKed when she walked in. (See what I did there? Ha ha.) Her second title, Senior Foam Dart Sniper, comes from her ease of finding hiding places in the office to set up in during office wars. Despite her hiding skills, she has taken a couple darts to the eye safety goggles and forehead.
Andrew has lived up and down the West Coast, from Oregon to New Mexico. He attended New Mexico State University where he graduated from the School of Arts & Sciences with a degree in Communication Studies. Andrew has an extensive work experience in retail and brings his ingenuity and drive to deliver results for his ADTACK team. When Andrew is not working, you can catch him playing Frisbee golf, snowboarding the Rockies, playing video games, and making new friends.
Adam is a man who has worked in the office 2 weeks longer than Andrew but some say they look similar. When he is not being called Andrew, he works diligently on polishing up his new disguise. Some say it is equal to the release of the Magnum look from Zoolander. Anyways, Adam enjoys just about any cup of coffee the world has to offer and a good snack. He also enjoys popping the bubbly, which some suggest taste like armpits but he says tastes more like sparkling water. Someone’s onto him, got to go!
Kirsten was born in Las Vegas, and while growing up, also lived in Iowa and Montana. It was easy for Kirsten to envision herself in a media related position, because her parents both had broadcasting experience in Las Vegas. Kirsten graduated from Foothill High School, and most recently, received her B.A. Degree in Business Administration, with a focus on marketing and public relations, from Nevada State College. While attending school, Kirsten worked in the retail industry where she learned how to keep customers happy, knowing that customer focus is crucial for business success. She has also enjoyed being a dedicated youth leader at her church for many years; it has provided her with multiple opportunities to embolden her leadership and communication skills. When not spending time with her family (especially her niece and nephew), Kirsten can be found reading, catching up on her favorite television shows, listening to great music, or drinking a caffeinated beverage from Dutch Bros.
Kirsten masterfully finds every moment possible to make others laugh. Armed with a back pocket full of cheesy jokes at the ready and a smile from ear to ear, she’s fit to lighten the mood when necessary. While understanding the importance of her role as Jedi of Positivity, Kirsten may take it a little too seriously – really, who needs multiple light sabers stashed under their desk? Nonetheless, being a guardian of peace and justice for the entire galaxy that is the ADTACK office is not always easy, but someone has to do it.

As Director of Moon Based Operations, my moon-day to day moon-tasks include checking the levels on the auto-generated oxygen output synthesizers, surveying the intravenous multi-formula artificial nutrient packets, and cleaning the windshield. It can get pretty lonely out here on the moon, but it makes it all worth while to sit back and watch the earth-set over the moon-rison after a hard day. I have much to do at the station, however it's easy to get done in one moon-work day since we have 709 hour days here. Most of my moon-tasks are complicated and technical, but for me it's not rocket science.
