Dave McLean

After 30+ years in this business, my passion is to provide a place that allows creative people the opportunity to flourish and grow, to provide unparalleled service to our clients, and have fun doing it.

" Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something. " — Thomas A. Edison

Mark Hamer

High on skills. Low on attitude. Mark is the captain of our creative team. Comfortable behind the camera or in the edit suite, Mark is a true problem-solver. From the first meeting, to the storyboard, to the final delivery of a film, this guy is on the case.

" Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best. " — Theodore Isaac Rubin

Rich Maurer

As a working musician with a lifelong passion for music, Rich brings years of experience to the table as a mixer, engineer and sound designer. For Rich, audio is more than a finishing touch, it is an essential part of a great audience experience.

" All lasting business is built on friendship. " — Alfred A. Montapert

Sarah Girosky

As a designer, animator, and editor, Sarah is the essence of our interdisciplinary approach at the Garage. This CIA grad is calm and patient, yet passionate about the work.

" Everyone has an invisible sign hanging from their neck saying, 'Make me feel important.' Never forget this message when working with people. " — Mary Kay Ash

Eddie Smith

An action and sports photographer with a natural eye for composition. This hard-working guy is always experimenting with new techniques behind the camera or in the edit suite.

" And while the law of competition may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department. " — Andrew Carnegie

Amy E. Piatak

A friendly voice on the phone, the source of fresh baked vegan goodies and the heart of the Garage. Be it a stray cat or stray dog, (and the occasional stray client), Amy makes sure all creatures are taken care of.

" There is no time for cut-and-dried monotony. There is time for work. And time for love. That leaves no other time! " — Coco Chanel

Jamie Roehm

A third-generation number cruncher, Jamie lives for the numbers. Really. Jamie keeps the business side of the business in line.

" A budget tells us what we can't afford, but it doesn't keep us from buying it. " — William Feather


Duncan reminds us how important it is to play, and keep your eye on the ball. Focus on the ball. The ball. Get the ball. Good boy.

" All his life he tried to be a good person. Many times, however, he failed. For after all, he was only human. He wasn't a dog. " — Charles M. Schulz
