Let's bring amazing ideas to life.

Draft is a creative advertising agency who strives to create work that we are proud to call our own, not just “approved”. We believe that art has no formal boundaries and should co-exist within every concept we create. We are here to imagine great things, chase curiosity, and – most importantly – bring those ideas to life. We will never stop thinking, writing, scribbling, shooting, and dreaming. Great ideas exist within everyone. Show ‘em off.

Think up. It’s what we do.

Draft employees are a special breed.

We are a group of inspired dreamers and doers. To mix up the typical bios, we had each person on the team write about someone else on the team…enjoy!

Alex Oliver | President, CEO

“Bold, fearless, courageous…he’s a natural born leader and an inspiration to us all (that is, as long as he’s had his pretentious, pour over coffee in the morning). Alex Oliver’s vision for our company is clear…which is great because we’d follow him blindly anywhere.” – Carson, Senior Producer

Rogan Oliver | Sr. Vice President, CMO

“Our resident expert in fishing and smoked meats, Rogan also knows a thing or two about maximizing the impact of an ad campaign through media placement. With his 25+ years of experience, our clients consistently hit their goals under his direction.” – Blake, VP Operations, COO

Brian McNew | VP Creative, CCO

“Brian is relentless…his hunger for creativity coupled with his natural tendencies to challenge everyone around inspires us to be better than we imagined ourselves to be. Standing at 6’5″, theres a lot of surface area to bounce ideas off of, which makes for a great writers room.” – Rob, Copywriter

Blake Waring | VP Operations, COO

“A man of refined tastes, Blake dwells effortlessly in the chaos that inevitably ensues between client and creative. He has the mind of a businessman and the hands of a craftsman, making him imperative in toning in the ridiculousness of many creative meetings.” – Nick, Digital Strategy Director

Nick Oliver | Digital Strategy Director

“By day a social media Jedi, by night a ‘smooth operator’ on his living room dance floor, Nick is our secret weapon. From Death Metal mosh pitter to rap aficionado, his musical tastes are unparalleled. He is an integral part of our team and has an overwhelming knowledge about digital marketing, search, and social.” – Brian, VP Creative, CCO

Carson Hunt | Senior Producer

“As one of the best storytellers any of us know, Carson’s attention to detail is really amazing. Loves comics. Loves music. Carson is a very passionate person who knows what he believes, and is open minded at the same time. He could easily be a voice actor, but prefers to direct and shoot. Confident and highly creative, his input is always something to be listened to…” – Erik, Producer

Rob Crawford | Copywriter

“Purveyor of vibes, maker-upper of wordery, and owner of the bluest Subaru in all the land; this SCAD Grad brings forth a wealth of creativity to any conversation he chooses to engage. Whether stoning multiple birds with a single throw or executing his wit upon unsuspecting bystanders, his free spirit can no easier be contained within a simple bio as he can be entrapped inside the Draft offices on a bright sunny day.” – Brian, VP Creative, CCO

Stacey Oliver | Hospitality / Make Up Artist

“Certified and trained as a hair stylist, make up artist and yoga instructor (not simultaneously), her true gift lies in her servant’s heart. Stacey always has a smile to share and a hot meal on the way, making her excel in her official role of ‘Hospitality Coordinator’, but let’s get real – she is the greatest Shopmom in the history of shops or moms. We are blessed to have her array of talents and relentless positivity here at Draft!” – Rob, Copywriter

Erik Doty | Producer

“Film enthusiast, snack connoisseur, and hot tub lover. You’ll be hard pressed to find a guy behind a camera as talented as Erik. Hired originally as a videographer for our film Voyage, Erik is always capturing never-before-seen angles, thinking up wild ideas, and up for any task thrown his way.” – Alex, President, CEO

Beau Patton | Designer

“aka Beauflex. Designer by day (and night – you can check out his personal page on Instagram @vectorvillian). Beau’s work ethic is truly unparalleled. He is the go-to guy on any size project and always willing to contribute, lift heavy things, and learn. Also, he has a man bun and bunch of badass tattoos…” – Alex, President, CEO

Cara $prinz | Controller

“Cara’s love of numbers befuddles most. She is simply silly about spreadsheets and her enthusiasm for monthly P&L meetings is unprecedented. Cara thrives in accrual world and our appreciation of her passion will never depreciate.” – Brian, VP Creative, CCO

Briscoe Bear | Shop Dog, Vibes

“Briscoe pretends to be a fierce and loyal protector, but let’s be honest – his ridiculously fuzzy ears are a dead give away that he is a sweetheart who just wants his belly rubbed. He plays a key role at Draft as ‘Employee Morale Enhancer’. He is loved by all and feared by none (just don’t tell him that).” – Cara, Controller
