Our People

The many faces that make us Pace.

I’m a husband, father, writer, musician, yogi, and a creative director at Pace. What could be better than that?
Todd Eckle, Associate Creative Director
I keep a light saber in my bedroom for emergency situations.
Tommy Alderson, Associate Creative Director
I get inspired by the greats! Anthony Bourdain, Kanye West, Isabel Allende, Louis C.K., James Baldwin.

If I were a Muppet I’d be Beaker. He’s awesome and survives all sorts of explosive situations.

I create content that helps people connect with a brand that they love and get the most of their relationship with that brand.
Erin Perkins, Editor
Being a non-creative, it’s very refreshing to work among these brilliant minds and be in awe of the work they create.

There’s only one way to eat an elephant: one bite at a time.

I can’t live without TV. I’m a total couch potato and reality TV junkie.

Keats Pierce, Associate Creative Director
Q: If there were a zombie apocalypse, how would you survive it? A: Right, like I’ll give up my survival secrets. NICE TRY.
Naomi Spicer, Associate Editor
Q: What is your favorite memory? A: My memory is terrible, so I always use my wife’s. Let me check with her.
Kevin de Miranda, Creative Director
If there were a zombie apocalypse, there’s no way I would survive it. Zombieland’s rule #1: CARDIO – definitely not my strongest area.
Chris Vernon, Designer
I’m wanderlusting hard for the Amalfi Coast right now. It caters to all of my weaknesses: Sunshine, pasta, beaches and charming Italians.
Elyse Bradley, Content Director
I love that I get paid to write all day!
Abrea Armstrong, Associate Editor
If I were a type of candy, I'd be a dark chocolate bar with almonds. It’s elegant, and has a hint of irony because nuts are good source of protein.
Britta Waller Melton, Creative Director
For the safety of those around me, it’s best that I don’t try living without coffee.
Larry Williams, Creative Director
I love living in a world with fireflies, french roast coffee, my 6-minute commute, lily-of-the-valley perfume and dogs.

The bigger you dream, the harder you have to work. My parents taught me that, and I apply it to my life every single day.
Jennie Ahlgren, Account Manager
Q: Harry Potter or The Hobbit? A: The Hobbit is good. Lord of the Rings is better.

I need music. It gets the creative juices flowing, relaxes me when I’m anxious and keeps me focused when I have a lot going on.

I’m great at cracking a joke at the worst (or best depending on your POV) possible moment.
Neil Marion, Creative Director
I get to come to work every day and collaborate with some of the most talented people I’ve ever met.
Josh Barrer, Associate Editor
I can't live without ice cream. Or TV. Eating ice cream + binge-watching something = my perfect night.
Liz Olech, Digital Editor
The perfectionist in me always remembers, 'failure is not an option.' Wise words from Apollo 13.
Emily Howard, Associate Editor
At Pace you can have the same conversation with the president as you can with the girl sitting next to you. I love that.
