Meet our team
operating as Graphic Designer/Production Artist
I can pinpoint the exact moment when I wanted to be a designer. When I was 14 years old I participated in the “Faces of Tomorrow” project during the Boston Cyberarts Festival. I manipulated an image of my face in Photoshop Elements 1.0 and the rest is history. Telling creative stories using design and video is my passion. I consider myself fortunate to work with such a talented team here at Viewpoint. They are also really good at pronouncing my last name.
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 Senior Designer / Animator
After Effects & C4D animator who loves working at Viewpoint Creative. Born and raised in Vermont. I have two kids, Leila and Jasper and a dog named Blue. Avid ultra runner, vinyl junkie, retro gamer, soccer dad and musician.
operating as Designer / Animator
I got bit by the advertising bug about halfway through college, and I have to give most of the credit to Viewpoint's internship program (or possibly to the discovery of Mad Men…). I love all things motion graphics, I watch a whole lot of different TV series, and get far too competitive over ping pong matches. I played baseball in college and am on a mission to be a Sox season ticket-holder someday.
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
I'm a New Jersey native who moved to Boston for school and just kind of stuck around. Eventually that included switching allegiances from the Yankees to the Red Sox (and Patriots, and Celtics), much to my family's dismay. When I'm not writing snappy headlines or fun video scripts, I'm usually hanging out with my wife and our two daughters, Ruby and Ramona. Occasionally, I can also be found making short films, playing guitar and singing with the punk band Ready, Steady… Torpedo!, and playing pretty much any sport in any pickup game I'm invited to.
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 Accounting Manager
I worked for Viewpoint for 14 years in the accounting department until 2006. I cracked open a fortune cookie this year and it said Oops…Wrong Cookie, really? I knew my “Dorothy” shiny red shoes would eventually bring me back to Viewpoint, and here I am. I love scaring my four nephews, watching horror films, and anything paranormal. Life is so much better with peanut butter, a loving family, and crazy friends!
operating as Editor
One time I learned that a story well told can change people’s lives, so I set for that to be my life’s mission. I didn’t know how, I just knew that’s what I’d want out of life. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved trailers and TV commercials, more so than the actual shows I watch, so I looked into it and found out you can make a living by making those things you see on TV when shows go on breaks (or that are now forced on you before you watch a video online) so I figured I’d give it a try. Little did I know I’d find my passion in it!
operating as Designer
I was born in Missouri and raised in Maine. I am a passionate snowboarder, surfer, and fisherman. My design foundation was developed working in magazines and print production. I have since transitioned my focus to digital design and love designing for animation. I am a music nerd. Please talk to me about music.
operating as Receptionist
As the first voice you hear when calling Viewpoint Creative, I keep a smile in my voice to make everyone calling know that they are important to us. Like being a hostess in my own home, I want everyone to feel welcomed. In my past life after raising 5 children, I went to work for a number of telecommunications companies before starting a company with my daughter where we did data collection, programming and training on the use of telephone and computer systems. I’ve come full circle now, having trained the staff at Viewpoint Creative many years ago when we first started our business to being an employee here today. I’m thinking there was some divine intervention going on here.
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 Assistant 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 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 Art Director
In preschool I was given a coloring book and started screaming - I didn’t want to color between the lines. This has defined my life. I have been coloring outside the lines for more than 7 years, eventually with my own studio in Venezuela cofounded by my wife. I've taught in universities, went against the government in civil disobedience, have hated the smell of tear gas in the morning and have been on the bad side of a gun more than once. Viewpoint is place that serves as a catalyst for creative defiance; our weapon is design. All we have to do now is convince the client.
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 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 Director
My name is Edward but people call me Ted. A few have even called me Tedward. Rascals. I grew up on the New Hampshire seacoast and was drawn to art and design from an early age. I've worked in several fields of the advertising world including digital, traditional, and broadcast and I like to think it gives me a holistic view when approaching a new challenge. I'm a creative director who enjoys conceptualizing big ideas, overseeing projects, managing the team, and even designing style frames for many of our projects. When I am not working on a new campaign, graphics package, or rebrand you can find me either laughing with my family or surfing.
operating as Assistant 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 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 Marketing Manager
I’m a Massachusetts native, transplanted to Pittsburgh then brought back by chance. I have a background in printmaking and music journalism, with a brief stint in the startup world before joining the team at Viewpoint. In my free time you can probably find me at a concert trying to interview the band, running by the Charles, or making tiny gouache paintings.
operating as Producer
I'm Sarah, and I'm a producer at Viewpoint Creative, where I have worked for the last ten years (not counting my semester as an intern - I have roots here!). I enjoy running, rowing on the Charles footsteps away from our office, skiing, traveling, camping and other woodsy activities. When I'm not outside I like to cook, work on refinishing furniture and trying my hand at other crafty things. I love all the variety that comes with the projects I work on, and love my fellow Viewpointers and their dogs too!
