Head of Marketing
Malayna's love of words was combined with music for most of her life, but working in the family business gave her an eye for detail. She expanded that into multimedia storytelling--scripts for TV, radio and live events, content for websites, e-newsletters and social media. She wrote a novel too! And for 12 years, she lived in Sri Lanka. Now back in the U.S., she still loves working with musicians and on multimedia productions while being a champion for good causes.
Head of Design
Growing up around the family business, Adam could hardly escape sharing his talent for art and design. He has spent much of his career in the art departments of TV and film productions, mostly doing graphic design, but also being involved in other aspects of production. His creativity extends into all kinds of design--home, garden, mechanical and banners, signs stickers and t-shirts, and in general, making things work. In his spare time, he's a video game aficianado.
