We respond quickly to new technology, grasp the implications for our clients, and leverage them to capture the attention of consumers and businesses online. Many of our clients are small to medium sized businesses, so our philosophy has always been to cost effectively meet these ever evolving technologies with practical and measurable campaigns in keeping with our client’s budget constraints.

Caitlin is a graduate of Villanova University and currently pursuing her Masters in Communications in the Advanced Academic Program at Johns Hopkins University. With her Outward Bound experience and advanced certified SCUBA certification, you can’t miss Caitlin’s high-energy persona and love for mastering the unfamiliar. A former brand manager with a client base such as Anheuser-Busch, The Philadelphia Eagles, and ATT National, the Villanova grad uses her Zuckerberg-like knowledge of digital platforms and knack for creative branding to produce the same kind of gold we’ve seen in her art shows, triathlon stints, reality-show audition tapes and her hush-hush plans to master the art of gourmet ice cream-making. Add in a highly developed social network (the famous art thief, the Navy Seal, the Fox29 legal correspondent) and you’ve got a girl who can hold her own with the movers, the shakers and the LA-based casting directors who were floored when she turned down a spot on The Bachelorette.
Like everyone else, Andrew isn’t exactly sure how to properly say his last name (it’s pronounced Lasso-knee-kiss we’re told). Taking the helm as one of the lead Project Managers, Andrew may be the new kid on the block at Boomtown, but he is a seasoned pro in the SEO game. Adept at delivering quality content, articles, and blogs, Andrew has been providing quality digital growth for businesses throughout the Philadelphia area for almost 4 years. Since graduating from Kutztown University in 2009, Andrew has honed in on providing quality client marketing campaigns. The only notable exception was the week he spent trying to write a live-action Spider-man musical (turns out U2 beat him to it).
