Lakshmi Narayan, Founder, Creative Director
My background is 9 years of undergrad and graduate training in Graphic Design and Visual Communication. I have 30 years experience in various print and multimedia, including branding and corporate identity systems, collateral design, magazine design, direct mail, ads, packaging, web development and scriptwriting. I am passionate about transformation of consciousness and culture.
Boris Is, Graphic Designer
I design to frame stories, solve problems, and make connections. In that sense, the scope of my role often extends beyond that which you see, and I always create knowing the design will become something more. Originally from Russia, I served in Kuwait and Okinawa with the US Air Force before attending the widely influential Creative Circus, an advertising/design portfolio school in Atlanta. My worldly experience in life is only eclipsed by the skill in illustration and design. With a love for all things sustainable, mobile and highly functional. By no means a master of anything but a resourceful hand for any task at hand. I’m striving to become a responsible human being as opposed to a mindless consumer.
Mary Beth Bonfiglio, Writer, teacher, speaker, and provocateur
I have been writing and cultivating voices for over half my life. I currently teach writing workshops, create courses on embodied tarot, and work with clients for complete website copy writing. I love mentoring heart-based, passionate and change-making entrepreneurs in their own “story branding”. When a business owner learns to harness their voice in sales copy, powerful alchemy and authentic success occurs. I’m currently working on my third screenplay- I think the script format is a profound and effective way to tell a story. In my free time I lead medicine journeys, make Mala beads, hike and hangwith my three daughters. I write my artistic process at marybethbonfiglio.com. and currently live in beautiful Portland, OR.

Bret Bernhoft, certified Web Analyst, podcast producer
I thrive on pushing the envelope of discovery and expression using effective Internet tools. Being willing to take a chance and work hard have been the keys to my success. I have created a community called “Being Bipolar” that currently has over 178,000 members. It’s an online resource designed to provide a common space for the bipolar disorder community to meet and share experiences.

Based in Portland Oregon, my work encompasses a variety of roles including analytics to track the performance of websites, Facebook pages, iTunes podcasts, etc. and Web development with a focus on increasing online traffic.
Chris Schmauch, photographer
I am a husband of a loving, amazing woman, a father of three beautiful children, and a creative professional with a passion to please. If I could pay the bills with the ear-to-ear smiles and compliments from my clients, I’d work for free 🙂 I’m a gadget-loving, technology geek. But I’m also a compassionate human-being lover. Put the two together and you get state-of-the-art images that will provide meaningful enjoyment for a lifetime.
