Meet our team
operating as Senior Creative Editor
My name is Jon... Not Jonathan or John.. just Jon. My parents decided that they wanted me to suffer a lifetime full of name misspellings solely because they thought the name Jon was cute. I however am not as short as my name, being 6'5" it's hard not to notice me. I have been known to be walking around Viewpoint Creative performing Editorial Tricks.
operating as Major Distraction
I am not speaking unless there is a treat involved.
operating as Assistant Accountant
A social worker walks into an advertising agency, and an accountant is born! Or something like that. You might be wondering how I ended up here, and the answer to that is simple: people and their stories. The minute I walked into Viewpoint I knew I was surrounded by passionate and hardworking individuals who had more stories than I’d know what to do with.
operating as Producer
My earliest claim to fame is at 3 years old when I pretended to be a mannequin at a department store while my family raced past me numerous times trying to find me. I've worked with everyone, seen some crazy things and lived to tell, and keep learning something new every day.
operating as Creative Director
In first grade, I wrote a story about a violet and a rose who become friends and go on adventures. It was called… wait for it… "The Adventures of Violet & Rose.” I’ve gotten (slightly) better at titles since then and have won awards for my work in television and advertising, but according to my mother, that flower story is still the best thing I’ve ever done.
operating as Marketing Coordinator
My background is in video production, but I transitioned to marketing a few years ago, so marketing for Viewpoint is a perfect blend of the two. In my free time you'll find me reading, playing tennis, or watching whatever reality TV show is on that night. I also like cats just a little bit more than dogs, but don't tell the rest of the team!
operating as Editor / Animator
I am an editor/animator. I enjoy music and movies. I live at home with my family.
operating as Controller
My name is Lisa and I am not one of those “boring” accountants. I love working here at Viewpoint. There are a couple of things that you will notice once you get to know me. One of them is that I am a runner and that I love to run. When I am not working I am either training with the Wicked Running Club out of Salem, MA or I am participating in one of many races that will earn me a tech shirt or perhaps a jacket with my name on the sleeve. Another thing about me is that I love to chat; stop by the business office and I will offer advice on just about anything or talk your ear off about my daughter.
operating as Associate Producer
My name is Anny (ah-knee). Many people misspell/mispronounce my name although it only has four letters. I’m very passionate about producing and love being the go-to person with all the answers. If I don’t know the answer right away, I sure do know how to find it for you. I’m also a volleyball coach in my spare time (which in turn leaves me with no spare time) and love to sing.
operating as Director of Editorial & Compositing
The legend is that I was born behind a Grass Valley switcher at WBZ-TV, and was raised lovingly by the engineers and creatives. I am the 2nd longest-term employee at Viewpoint Creative (next to the President), and have consistently kept the company at the cutting edge of both technology and creativity using my dual-powered right-brain/left-brain. I enjoy photography, travel, hiking, skiing, and coming up with new things to do with FileMaker.
operating as President
I love watching talented people do what they love to do. I love seeing our team create magic. I love people that break into a sweat during brainstorming. I love people that leave their egos at home.I love people that give of themselves to help others less fortunate, share their knowledge, and help a cause they believe in. I love people that get more excited about our client’s success than winning awards.I love people that can tell a story and make you laugh, cry, ponder or reconsider. I love people that enjoy Cannoli Tuesdays, Cookie Thursdays and Bagel Fridays and Scotch Club. I love people that bring their dogs to work. I love the people that ARE Viewpoint Creative.
operating as Audio Engineer
I’ve always been a rocker. In fact until I was 18 years old I thought I was going to be a rock star, naïve I know, but it was good fun. I made up for it however in my adult life by seeing more concerts and various bands live that I could possibly ever count. It all plays into the sound experience. I love what I do and can’t imagine doing anything else. To impact a listener on an emotional, visceral level, is as close as I can get to playing the 17 year old rock star.
operating as Producer
I come to Viewpoint with a background in live action production and have enjoyed being a part of the creative process & environment. I am able to combine my love of production and dumpster diving under one roof at Viewpoint where I shelter found chairs as if they were so many lost cats. My recovered discards can be found at the end of many a producer's desk where people sit but never linger for fear the decrepit relic will buckle underneath them. I will continue to drag my trash heaps to Chapel Street until someone tells me not to.
operating as Creative Services Assistant
As the Creative Services Assistant to the Editorial and Production teams I edit video, facilitate production, search/screen footage for upcoming projects as well as conceptualize ideas for social media content. When I'm not at VPC, I enjoy going to heavily discounted fitness classes from Groupon, listening (*crying*) to stories about love, loss and redemption on NPRs podcast “Modern Love”, and seeing/writing/performing sketches at Improv Boston.
operating as Assistant Editor
I’ve been in Massachusetts for six years now, but my love of camping, kayaking, paddle boarding and hiking reveals my Maine roots. I brought my editorial skillset to a variety of production houses, in-house teams, and agencies here in Boston before landing at Viewpoint. When I’m not in the office you can find me reading, painting, or enjoying the outdoors.
operating as Creative Editor
Hi! I'm Kristen. I take pride being from New England and being able to face the wrath of Mother Nature, who can't seem to make up her mind. I believe in doing the best you can with what you are given. I'm bringing my creative talent and "awesomeness" into the Post department. You'll find me peering over Janet's shoulder on cookie thursdays in the VC kitchen. I also have an irrational fear of belly buttons.
operating as Executive Creative Director
My path has been one big circle… from Boston to NYC to LA and back to Boston. There is no specific reason why I ended up back in Boston unless it is destiny or karma or the simple pleasure of going in circles. But having been a creative director at HBO, a Vice President at FX, not to mention evolving and marketing brands from Staples to ESPN with Viewpoint Creative, I’ve learned that no matter where you are, the goal remains the same: to tell great stories. It always circles back to that.
operating as Senior Animator
I’m a bit of a jack of all trades. I started my career in pre-production hoping to be a cinematographer, but that didn’t work out, so I decided I'd move to Korea to teach English, but ultimately started my career in animation here in Boston instead. I really enjoy motion graphics and the problem solving involved in figuring it all out. In my free time you'll find me fixing up my old house, and attempting to start a Paw Paw orchard, aka "the hipster mango".
operating as Executive Producer
I’m a voiceover-acting, funk blues-rocking, podcast-producing, wine-sipping, pit bull supporting, longtime new biz dev guru. And proud of it. I’m one part rocker chick, one part LA hippie. In my spare time, you can find me hiking to the top of a mountain, creating weird music tracks or stuffing my face with pretzels. So am I a little eccentric? Maybe. And am I happy to be part of the team at Viewpoint? Definitely.
operating as Creative Director
(Patiently waiting for Mike's bio...)
operating as Director of Engineering
I am the Director of Engineering. I have been working in Broadcasting or Film and Video production for over 30 years. My favorite food is beer. Or steak. Or steak and beer.
operating as Creative Editor
I'm Jack, I love movies, music and TV. I started making movies when I was a kid, and eventually made my way to Hollywood after college. After a few years, I came back to Boston so I could work in my favorite city. When I'm not working with footage, I enjoy playing the guitar and drums with friends. The dog you see with me is Buddy. He is a professional escape artist and food connoisseur.
operating as General Manager and Executive Producer
Using both the left and right sides of my brain is a must for me - I believe in order to succeed in business you need to be creative, and, in order to be creative, well, you need to just be. I have an uncanny attention to detail and have to say ‘hi’ to any dog I see on the street. To this day, I still don’t think my parents know what I really do (sorry mom & dad) - I love the challenge of solving what seems to be unsolvable and anything to do with live action. If I weren’t in this business I’d be working with dogs. Projects and clients…I’ve worked on and with just about every kind and look forward to the ones I haven’t. Did I mention I like dogs?
operating as Designer/Animator
I see myself as a true adventurer and explorer. Born in Indonesia, pursuing study in Singapore, New York, Savannah, and here I am in Newton.
I love creating magic through my works, reaching out to people’s heart through design. I love traveling too, I’m sure you might have guessed it by now.
operating as Executive Producer
I grew up with a tennis racket in my hand and one of my biggest life achievements is winning a set off of Sharapova as a junior player in Florida. These days my shots are a bit rustier and I am more likely to be found with a ping pong paddle in my hand than a racket. My European roots bring me back to Italy and France often where I get my yearly shot of pastries, cheese, pasta, bread, and more pastries. I find it thrilling to ignite great creative solutions for our partners needs.
operating as Director of Strategy & Client Services
I’m a pretty curious person and a pop culture devotee. My family and friends frequently ask me to confirm the latest rumors, or find out a fun fact, about celebrities and public figures. Maybe that is why marketing has always intrigued me. I get to channel my curiosity to understand how consumers think and behave, uncovering insights that will inform strategies and creative that are powerful and effective, helping brands connect with consumers. I enjoy the dynamic, fast-paced, and challenging marketing environment, and am inspired by the smart, talented clients and colleagues I am fortunate to work with every day.
operating as Director of Operations
Career project manager, lifetime Type A. It all started with my starring role as the angel in a nativity play when I was little, and, as my mom tells it, I proceeded to cue the other kids when it was their turn to come down the church aisle. I feel I was destined to boss people around, but in an angelic way. I love gardening, knitting, Star Wars and CATS! But don’t tell the office dogs about the cat thing…so far, they think I’m cool.
