People

 

From designers to writers, account people to planners, we’ve got an award-winning team with a genuine passion for what they do and an all-hands-on-deck attitude to make sure it gets done.

 

Matt Ferebee

partner, director of creative strategy
 

I’m a writer, thinker, tinker, husband and dad who believes in the power of empathy, the beauty of language and the promise of thoughtful design. What gets me out of bed everyday is the chance to help brands feel a little more human—and humans feel a little more connected. 

Josh Lane

partner, director of account strategy
 

I believe in humility and competitiveness, relationships and perspective, and courage and sacrifice.  I have a deep desire for our team to achieve greatness without losing balance in life.  I believe that to be great you never stop learning and you surround yourself with the smartest people. Beyond work, I love to run, and if I have the time, the longer the distance the better.  But more than that, the most precious times are with my kids and my wife of nearly 20 years.

Cory Schearer

Creative Director
 

Work: Start with a sketch. No egos. Business trips that break for milk shakes. Walk fast and be kind.

Life: Four amazing kids. Montana native. Fly-fishing and a 1961 FeatherCraft boat. Dachshund named Summer (Sausage).

 

Kelsey Nelson

director of social influence
 

I like: running, my husband, my dog, the news, a good IPA, Ohio, traveling to places I’ve never been before, hanging out with my niece and nephews, Snapchat, Lebron James, snail mail, meeting new people, fiction, Ohio University, almost every Netflix original series, crime podcasts and black coffee. I don’t like: writing my own bio.

Katie Driggs

director of media
 

I love to surprise people—in the "I never would have thought that of her" sort of way. It’s a personal challenge. Give me a task you don't think I can handle, and I'll kill it. A college roommate didn't think I could eat an entire double quarter pounder meal with fries. No problem. Handling large, scaly reptiles? Easy—I once had a pet Ball Python. I love to be under-estimated. It makes the surprise that much better. So go ahead: just try and tell me it can't be done.

Leslie Hollis

controller
 

I’m home grown: an Upstate native and Southern belle that uses “bless your heart” daily—at least twice. I love the beach, traveling (four countries in one year? Check.) and spending time with family and friends over good Southern food. 

Jivan Davé

senior art director
 

I've come a long way since popped collars and street-racing in high school. But that need for speed and refined taste never left. Since then I’ve picked up a passion for branding and editorial design, food photography, and a love for hip-hop only exceeded by a love for my family. 

Matt Gaymon

management supervisor
 

I love people and the amazing stories we each carry. And nothing energizes me more than understanding and connecting with those around me. From working with clients and creative teams, to managing the Yankees (not the New York version - my son’s t-ball team), every interaction has value. Outside of the office, I'm most likely kickin' it with my amazing wife and three hilarious kids and always on the pursuit of the greatest BBQ joint in the land.

 

Caroline Hafer

Social influence specialist
 

I’m a true ENFP. The love child of curiosity and logic, frustratingly outgoing and independent. I’m good at talking to strangers and assembling Ikea furniture. I have ballet on a diploma and believe life is about the improvisations: the quick thinking, the fancy footwork and being okay with making a complete fool of yourself sometimes.

David Paxton

graphic designer
 

I’m from Ohio. I’m a Cavs fan. I’m a Buckeyes fan. And I still believe the USA will win the World Cup in my lifetime. I like to collect vinyl, but I don’t drink coffee. And sometimes I design things.

Morgan Booker

copywriter
 

At heart, I’m a bit of a mad scientist. There’s nothing more exciting than bringing the weird, wild and wondrous to sharpened strategy. It’s creative alchemy. When not at the office, you’ll probably find me on the trail, sleeves-up with a paintbrush or fermenting something strange (and hopefully delicious).

 

Kayla Cartee

account coordinator
 

Believe it or not, I survive on only water—no coffee. And I can’t live without a good sticky note to make my lists on. When I’m not indulging my love of crime shows and movies over buttery popcorn, I love traveling to new places (I’ve been to 9 different countries) and laughing with friends. There’s just nothing like that magical, deep-belly feeling of a really good laugh.

Jan Leidlein

office manager
 

I’m a Michigan native who fell in love with Greenville and out of love with snow. Prior to Ferebee Lane, I owned a home and garden retail store and a landscape design company—you’ll still find me leaving notes in mailboxes offering ‘advice’ on curb appeal. I love spending time outdoors, at the beach, bicycling, barbecuing and being ‘Gigi’ to two wonderful granddaughters.

Lanford Swan

account supervisor
 

Adventure-seeker. Night owl. Gamecock married to a Dawg. Concerts and travel are my life; reality television is my vice. Yes, Lanford really is my first name.

 

Natalie Monts

production manager
 

Driven, diversely-experienced creative guided by a personal belief in the old adages: good can always be better, less is more and you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. Devoted to family, friends, dogs and Clemson Football. And lover of everything basic: Brunch, Starbucks, Beach, Yoga, Mean Girls, Snapchat Selfies, Beyoncé and #hashtags.

Hannah LaScola

account supervisor
 

I was born in Minnesota, grew up in Ohio and stayed briefly in Connecticut before making my way South. Might be why I love a good road trip. I’ve played kickball 13 seasons and counting and I’m pretty great at PowerPoint. Also, my birthday is on Halloween.

John Fahr

production technician
 

My passions have changed shape over time. I come to video production by way of audio production (by way of music performance [by way of boredom]). I enjoy adding skill sets to my repertoire, miles to my runs and cats to my household.

 

Emily Perry

copywriter
 

A great day looks like a strong cup of a coffee, a freshly sharpened pencil, and a mountain view. I’m a Duke kid turned Tar Heel with a penchant for all things story. I feel just as at home at a ballet barre as I do in the stands of a baseball game. Few things excite me as much as stovetop popcorn and solving messy problems with thoughtful words.

Ben Granger

senior account manager
 

I’m a DSGB who grew up on sweet tea and mama’s cookin’. Athletics and public school shape my perspective on life and my passion to live it. An empty gym is my sanctuary. I’m always down for a good tailgate and a cold one. If you’re a friend to me, you’re a friend for life, and nothing makes me happier than sharing a meal with those I love.

Hanah Ellsworth

media planner/buyer
 

I am a Pennsylvania native turned Greenville local, a crime show fanatic, dog lover, margarita connoisseur and Ohio State enthusiast. When out of the office, I am usually hanging out with my family or grabbing a bite to eat downtown. In the office, I enjoy supporting great creative with influential analytics.
