Meet our team

The greatest resource we can offer your brand is the minds of some of the best marketers in the country. Our people will stop at nothing to make sure you get noticed. You should meet those people. Preferably over a beer. But we’ll settle for a digital introduction.

MICHAEL HUEREQUE

Executive Vice President

He’s the man with the plan. Michael, aka “Hurricane”, is our fearless leader. He keeps us all sane with awkward jokes and wise life advice.

KAYLA MEYER

Director Of Operations

Kayla’s design chops combined with her entrepreneurial mindset and her eye for detail make her the ultimate triple-threat. You can find her in the mountains on weekends. Probably getting inspired to build your next great brand.

SAM WINN

Director Of Accounts

Sam is a digital tornado of knowledge and ideas. He’s the brains behind why your brand gets seen. His hobbies include skiing, soccer, and “hopping on” calls.

TREVOR BOYSON

Digital Manager

Trevor is a man of few words - because everything he says is profound. When he’s not figuring out ways to improve your digital presence, he may be found reading a good book.

LINDSAY POWELL

Account Manager

Lindsay is a Georgia peach who fell in love with the Rockies and then decided to climb a whole bunch of them. With her design, travel, and hospitality background (plus killer alt rock music tastes) she’s a perfect fit for the FIFTY3 team!

Melanie Smith

Account Manager

Our marketing coordinator is a mover and shaker. She makes things happen, she gets things done. Melanie grew up in Georgia and moved here from Mississippi, but think less southern belle and more southern bold.

BRANDON McKINNEY

Senior Digital Specialist

Brandon is cool, calm and always on top of his accounts. Fueled by an average of 6 cups of coffee a day, he can do it all. He has a weekend alter-ego named "Brando" who hikes in a Hawaiian t-shirt and flip-flops.

JENYA SAKAEVA

Senior Digital Specialist

Jenya is quite possibly a Russian spy or a robot. She builds PPC campaigns in her sleep while simultaneously solving a Rubik’s cube and writing a novel - all while listening to true crime podcasts.

Erica Warfield

Senior Social Ad Specialist

Erica’s spot on when it comes to social media and all things Digital advertising! Erica also has a love and appreciation for nature whether it’s plants, bugs or natural apothecary potions!

KAYLA GARPSTAS

Senior Graphic Designer

Kayla, known around the office as “Kayla 2.0”, has an impressive branding skillset and an equally impressive rock collection. She makes the world a better place as our resident vegan and peace advocate.

EMILY BAKER-SLAMA

Senior Graphic Designer

Meet the woman behind our caricatures and amazing hand lettering. Emily's drawings compete with Picasso. In her free time, she enjoys the occasional concert or twelve.

JOEY ENGELMAN

Senior Social Content Specialist

When he's not making your social media awesome, you can find Joey taking photos, playing guitar, hiking, or at a baseball game. While he may seem like a native Coloradan, he grew up in Florida (and saw snow for the first time a couple of years ago).

ALEX GUARDIA

Graphic Designer

Alex brings more than just design talent to our team. Alex can play the ukulele and has a passion for photography. Alex was also bitten by the mountain bug (like the rest of us) and relocated from Miami.

NATALIE HENG

Graphic Designer

Another Colorado transplant, Natalie originally hails from OKC. Her love of 20’s art deco inspiration makes her a graphic design whiz and is easily seen in her gorgeous, forearm tattoo. But number one in her heart? A small black ball of fur named Bernie.

IMAN SINNOKROT

Graphic Designer

Small, but mighty could easily be used to describe Iman. She is Chicago born and raised, ventured off to Savannah and is now making a home in Colorado with her cat, Maisy. She’s hungry for amazing designs, perfect branding and also real food, all the food.

AnnaMarie Salai

Graphic Designer

AnnaMarie started design young. In middle school she designed her own magazine...and distributed it to the entire school! Fast forward to today and she is skilled at painting, hand lettering, calligraphy, and is even self-publishing her own book with a collection of stories, illustrations, and experimental typography.

CORINNE WALKER

Website Specialist

A New Jersey native, Corinne’s half sleeve might scare you, but she has one of the largest hearts in the group. Known for her speed and efficiency, if we need a project quickly, she’s the girl to get it done.

KATIE TERWILLIGER

Marketing Coordinator

Katie is the Khaleesi of Multitasking. If she’s not reading or eating queso in large quantities, she’s being secretively competitive or at the dog park with her Beorgi mix (that’s a Beagle -Corgi BTW), Archibald Pickles.

TANNER DUNN

Media Specialist

Tanner is a man of many nicknames and interests. He is full of WOO energy which allows him to casually hike fourteeners, train for a half Iron Man and own a videography business. He left the freelance world to join Agency Fifty3 with bribes of endless guacamole and lots of popping bubble wrap.

MATT FERNANDEZ

Digital Specialist

Originally from New York, Matt took a pit-stop in Florida, where he became a certified rescue scuba diver (and honed his digital marketing skills).

Zo Antonow

Digital Specialist

Zo was lured from Chicago to Denver with the promise of mountains and shredding the gnar. She’s a mega asset to the digital team with an even bigger smile! A wannabe ski bum who swears she’s more graceful in ski boots than heels, Zo also keeps a daily outfit log and alters her own clothes.

Collin Sanger

Social Ad Specialist

Collin is not just our Social Ads Specialist, he is also a specialist in golf, basketball, snowboarding, and collecting vinyl. If he had a walk-out song every time he entered the office it would be "I've Got the World on a String" by Frank Sinatra - classy.

AUBREY RIGGINS

Social Content Specialist

Aubrey is always making moves. She recently left the greenery of Oregon for the mountains of Colorado with her two rescue pups, Jaxon and Opal. She lives for perfectly tailored social media content and also, did we mention her dogs?

One Luv Hull

Social Content Specialist

Another Chicago native has joined the FIFTY3 team! One Luv left the professional food game to join our social media team. His all around positivity and big smile have quickly become an essential part of our day!
