Hi there! I’m Dan, and I lead the team at Vivid Labs. My goal is to support each of our amazing team members as we grow and build world-class marketing and ad campaigns for our clients.

Hi I’m Angel, and I serve as the primary client liaison for project-based accounts. I help clients maximize their investment with solutions that are strategic but also practical and executable. My goal is to help clients ultimately generate more customers, higher sales and greater revenue by using various technologies to their full extent. I have over 20 years of experience in fast-paced, high-growth environments as well as in large, established organizations. I spent my early years in advertising sales, managing sales teams and I have developed many successful sales and marketing programs.

When I am not in my office, I enjoy spending time with my family. In the summer we always have weekend adventures and visit new places. I have a passion for traveling and exploring. When I am not seeking out a new adventure, you can find me curled up watching movies, in the kitchen cooking, or attending my children’s sporting events. I believe in working hard and taking advantage of enjoying life to its fullest.
