Your Mission Team
President & Chief Fundraising Strategist
With over two decades in the philanthropic and corporate sectors, Michelle takes pride in empowering organizations to leverage today’s emerging trends. As Mission’s fearless leader, she knows how to make things happen and, like the rest of the team, there’s no place she won’t go to bring back the content you need to reach your goals.
Frank is a leader in the digital space. Incredibly goal-oriented, his devotion to perfection drives record-breaking results. He is an uber-early adopter, and on top of every emerging online trend. In fact, some of them he started. When he’s not working on Mission stuff, you can find him on stage with his band and his beloved Les Paul Standard.
Kurt’s aptitude for innovative filmmaking makes him well suited to the fast-paced world of marketing and fundraising production. A remarkable talent under pressure—and Mission’s resident comedian—Kurt has made a name for himself delivering top notch work without compromise. Even if it means trading dinner for a bowl of cereal once in a while.
Patti is Mission’s in-house “air traffic controller.” From the first seed of an idea to your campaign’s completion, Patti keeps your project on track and on budget. She’s on top of stuff before we know there’s stuff to be on top of—she’s just that good. Honestly, we’d be a hot mess without her.
Tyler is an award-winning film director, writer and editor. Tyler’s devotion to striking, cinematic storytelling brings to life the essence of your mission with authenticity and heart. His dedication to excellence often keeps him working around the clock, fuelled by an insatiable appetite for good creative, sour candy and Red Bull.
James is an award-winning cinematographer and one of the most athletic shooters in the industry.
There’s no place he won’t go to get the shot. Just make sure he’s had his coffee. A well-respected leader in production and cinematography, James and the crew tackle the subtle elements of your story with unsurpassed technical excellence.
Erica’s ability to guide stories to life, combined with her refined touch in the editing suite, yields one breathtaking piece after another. Her work has screened all around the world, which is no surprise to us:
her instincts as a storyteller
yield beautiful, compassionate, and narratively-driven content.
Lisa combines her deep nonprofit project management experience with a passion for working with clients to make sure that Mission's cross-platform projects move ahead without a hitch. When she's not at Mission, you can find her out on the slopes, in the gym, caring for her family, curling up with a good book (or a guilty pleasure) or whipping up a tasty storm in the kitchen.
