Our Team

Hello.

 
 

We are a collective of strategists and creatives who are united by two things: our love of food and our desire to co-create a better future with people of strong vision and shared values.

T.S. Strickland

 

Founder, Chief Strategist

T.S. Strickland's nose for the newsworthy was fine-tuned working in the trenches as a newspaper journalist. It was also here that his passion for social and environmental justice took root. His award-winning reporting on environmental racism and domestic violence helped to shutter polluting companies and change state laws. You can find his writing in Entrepreneur, USA Today, the Washington Post and elsewhere. These days, he uses that experience to help food and beverage brands tune into their purpose, tell their stories and forge more meaningful connections with consumers. Keep up with him on Twitter at @TSStrickland1.

Brooke Fleming

Communications Strategist

Brooke worked as a sports broadcaster and tourism marketing manager before launching her own consultancy in 2016. She has planned media events in New York City and Chicago; coordinated film shoots with ESPN, The Travel Channel and The Today Show; and maintains an extensive list of media contacts in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. When she's not working, Brooke loves watching classic films, performing with her local opera company and searching for the perfect macaron.

Steven Gray

Visual Storyteller

Steven is one half of Move Media, a photo and video production company based in Pensacola, Florida. "Self-taught, self-disciplined and self-directed," his images have appeared in publications including the Bourbon Review, The Local Palate, National Fisherman, USA Today, Florida Trend and the Whiskey Advocate. When he's not on a shoot or hunched over an editing booth with a sniffer of whiskey, you're likely to find Steven traveling the four corners of the globe with his wife, Annie, or interviewing other iconoclastic creatives on his "Dark Horses" podcast. You can keep up with him on Instagram at @cameraandflask.

Annie Gray

 

Project Manager

Annie is the other (she might say "better") half of Move Media. Her background is in radio and the performing arts, but she is skilled at managing just about any type of project, from commercial photo shoots to large-scale brand activations. She's also handy with a camera. When she's not working, Annie can be found globe-trotting with Steven and planning an early retirement to Ireland.
