The many faces that make us Pace.
I can’t live without TV. I’m a total couch potato and reality TV junkie.
Lymari Miranda, Art Director
Q: What’s something you can’t live without? A: The basic side of me says "concealer"; the not-so-basic side says "books.”
Jen Hasty, Associate Editor
Things I love about my life: family, friends, fun, freedom, delicious food and beer.
Rick Kupselaitis, Account 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.

Music gives me life. And Queso. Cheese also gives me life.

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
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.
Jeanne King, Art Director
Good design looks effortless. If your audience can see the hard work, you’re not done.
Michael Meder, Associate Creative Director
No crazy, big decision in your life will ever the biggest mistake of your life unless you let it be.

Bridget Landwehrmann, Associate Project Manager
I can't live without ice cream. Or TV. Eating ice cream + binge-watching something = my perfect night.

I’m wanderlusting hard for the Amalfi Coast right now. It caters to all of my weaknesses: Sunshine, pasta, beaches and charming Italians.

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
I have a board in my home office of what I call “BARS” – bad ass rock stars – women who do amazing things and have overcome great odds. They inspire me.
Tracy Clark, Creative Director
I’m always trying to edit the world: That copy should be a little tighter, that menu item is misspelled, did anyone fact-check this movie, etc.
Alicia Miller Corbett, Creative Director
I love living in a world with fireflies, french roast coffee, my 6-minute commute, lily-of-the-valley perfume and dogs.
Karen Sommerfeld, Editor
I love working at Pace because there are so many talented people who are passionate about what they do.
