Staff


BARK BARK is made of people. Real experienced staff people who know what they are doing.
We’re not some loose network of freelancers. And, since we’re sticking around, feel free to get to know us…

Brian Tolleson
Head of Content & Managing Partner
BT hopes to look younger than his 20+years of experience. An idealist born with both creative & logistical lobes, bouncing between the offices, you are likely to meet him if you fly Delta.

Karen Grant
VP, Client Partnership

Karen is a TV fanatic and is proud of her non-millennial stance of having premium cable, Netflix, AppleTV, and all the other ways of consuming media.


Daniel Sattelmeyer
Creative Director

His progress report from a 3rd grade teacher still rings true: Ahead of the curve, great work, fast learner, but talks too much! Silent lunch is the worst punishment you can give him.


Aaron Smith
COO and Partner

Aaron competes in powerlifting, which is helpful when it comes to moving mounds of paperwork around the office. He never shies away from a challenge, and he apologizes in advance for stalking you for contracts or payments.


TABITHA MASON-ELLIOTT
HEAD OF PRODUCTION

As a firm believer in collective creativity, Tabitha joined Bark Bark to work with amazing people who shared that passion. She’s a logistical mastermind executing productions both large and small.


Ann Mohammadione
SENIOR PROJECT MANAGER

As Bark Bark’s Senior Project Manager, Ann believes in proactive communication, creative solutions, and that there’s no problem a cup of coffee can’t fix.


Francine McDougall
WEST COAST CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Dictionary definition: a person who directs the making of a film. Francine’s definition: juggling a dozen questions simultaneously, whilst convincing the 7 year old kid that he really does like that plate of mystery food.

Joe Coleman
Art Director & Pixel Overlord

“Art Director” can have so many meanings, and for Joe it does. Pixel Overlord seemed like a better description, so he tacked that on. It’s really all about bending pixels to his will, in a nice way.


Jason Sheedy
Senior Producer
From one frame to the next, Jason nurtures each clip we capture and never forgets to tuck them in each night without a good story.

David Brand
Executive Producer

David believes people come first, feelings do matter and that honesty is, and always will be, the best policy. Wait, what?


Matthew I. Jenkins
Director of Animation

Matt started drawing at age 2 and never stopped. Making cartoons for a living was an obvious career path. He’s happy. And tall and lanky. A direct descendant of Johnny Appleseed.


Ben Trickey
Executive Producer
With eagle-eye precision, Ben sees life in 23.98 or 29.97 frames per second (your preference) and can speed ramp any idea to the next level.


Carolina Rendon
Accounting Director

Vive, ama, cree! Carolina Rendon is the beauty and the brains of BARK BARK! She speaks three languages- English, Spanish, and Taxeese!


Keachia Greenidge
Senior Producer, Design & Animation

Keachia is a Motion Graphics Designer at Bark Bark, where she spends her days lovingly setting awesome designs into motion, and making TV magic with the rest of the graphics team.


Dustin Frissell
Writer + Producer

Dustin is an avid daydreamer who suffers from a wild imagination. He joined BARK BARK by way of Hollywood where he learned how to make words come to life.


Desiree Taylor
Associate Production Supervisor

Desiree is our Associate Production Supervisor and firmly believes that a stack of paperwork is a “Masterpiece.” She loves the process of production from beginning to end!


Brendan Davis
Associate Producer, Design & Animation
Brendan is an espresso fanatic. Food trailblazer. Certified creator in all things graphic, motion, and digital.

Jeremiah Prescott
Audio Producer

If a tree falls in a forest and nobody is there to hear it, does it make a sound? After I put like 5 whooshes, a really bassy explosion and the Wilhelm Scream under it…you bet your a#& it does!


Shakellia Lott
Office Manager

Meet Shakellia, Kela for short! She runs things… like the entire office.


John Kim
Production Assistant
John plays the support role for the post team. Like a caddy — but with video. Think about it.


Markus Oskarsson
Producer

Jack of all trades, master of none. Like a swiss army knife Markus does it all. He’s a video editor, producer, camera operator, drone operator, beer connoisseur and Cinefile. Although he has a hard time categorizing himself, Markus is truly a great production tool.


Allyson Reeves-Land
DIRECTOR OF DEVELOPMENT

Allyson likes to believe that reality television is just a series of
mini documentaries. That’s her story and she’s stickin’ to it.
