During his 20 years in advertising, he's done it all from selling custom snowboard graphics online to building brand web sites for major automotive companies.

Flash Point does “business” a little differently. We are all absolutely crazy and crazy about what we do. We love the color orange and we love people who challenge us, surprise us, and bring something intangible to our company. From athletes, artists, grass-fed nutritionists, photographers, dancers, interns, scotch decanters, human hashtags, yoga between meetings, and the occasional laser-tag tournament, we have a lot of everything going on here.

If you want to join this craze, make sure you bring all your oddities, subtleties, and everything in between.
