Editorial & Design

Simon Andrys

Simon Andrys, Creative Director

What’s a ridiculous fact about yourself?
I’m from the land of hockey, but didn’t put a pair of skates on until a few months ago. Please don’t kill me, Grand Forks.

Jennifer Gades

Jennifer Gades, Fargo INC! Associate Publisher

What’s a ridiculous fact about yourself?
Hmm…I can make balloon animals?  I also come from a long line of creative marketers.  My grandfather once owned a lion, a lion cub, monkeys, and a kangaroo (some of them even lived in his apartment), which all started as a marketing strategy to attract movie-goers to his theatre.

Ariel Holbrook

Ari Holbrook, Social Media & PR Coordinator

What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?
I’m a complete craft brew nerd, so I’m always trying to find a new brewery or coffee spot to check out or travel to. I also love yoga, scrolling the internet for memes, painting, and writing.

Nick Schommer

Nick Schommer, Business Development Manager

If there was a movie about your life, who would play you and why?
I would have to play that role myself.

Sales

Paul Hoefer

Paul Hoefer, Senior Sales Executive

What’s a ridiculous fact about yourself?
I won Rookie of the Year my first year of playing Rugby at MSUM in 2003-2004.  Now I get tired and sore just thinking about playing a Rugby Match.

Neil Keltgen

Neil Keltgen, Associate Sales Director

What’s a ridiculous fact about yourself?
I tore both my pectoral muscles doing a fitness evaluation. The surgeries and recovery were a long process, but I finally have an answer for a question like this.

Nick Linder

Nick Linder, Sales Representative

What’s a ridiculous fact about yourself?
It has taken me 26 moves in the last 15 years to finally have a place to call home.

Jennifer McColm

Jennifer McColm, Business Development Assistant

What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time, I’m usually biking, practicing yoga, or working on some sort of creative project.  My latest labor of love was restoring an old 56′ Shasta camper.

Ross Uglem

Ross Uglem, Bison Illustrated Contributor

If there was a movie about your life, who would play you and why?
Paul Rudd — he’s quite a bit better looking (and older) than I am but we have a similar sense of sarcastic humor.
