Owner & Client Services Director
A native of England, Michael moved to Oklahoma in June of 1999 upon graduation from Derby University with a BSc (Hons) in Biological Imaging. He began pursuing design and science as a career, initially serving as an adjunct professor at a local community college. He quickly realized a passion for networking and helping small businesses develop their online presence. Soon after, Directing Design was born.
Decidedly not a man of “all work and no play,” Michael sets aside time for his mountain bike, piano, trying new beer, and spending time with loved ones.
Content Writer & Social Media Manager
Originally from Alaska, Adi moved to Oklahoma just after graduating from Texas A&M University in 2000. A lover of words, she joined Directing Design in 2011 to manage the writing aspects of digital marketing – a perfect fit for someone who started her first journal in preschool.
Always testing her limits, Adi is an endurance runner with several ultramarathons under her belt, balancing that with a regular yoga practice. She also enjoys supporting local events with her family, cooking, and a good craft beer.
Fresh out of college and excited to put her graphic design skills to use, Mary joined Directing Design as an intern in May 2013. She showed the same dedication to her internship that earned her Outstanding Senior Art Student and a membership in the Delta Mu Delta Honor Society in college and just a few short months later, she was offered a permanent position on the team.
As an Oklahoma City native, Mary knows all the best antique stores, art galleries, and vinyl record stores, which is how she likes to spend her free time. Wherever you find her, Mary chooses to “hold herself to a standard of grace, not perfection”… a perfect motto for an artistic soul.
