WE ARE XYZ
What doesn’t kill you makes you name your company XYZ! Having worked for large production houses for 12 years in sales and management, Steve decided that it was high time he opened his own company servicing advertisers. Never mind that his second child was on the way, or that he had just bought a house in the Bay Area, or that it was 2001. Fast forward to today and you’ll find Steve spending time at all 3 of our studios, making sure the clients are happy and the employees are busy. Constantly pushing the evolution of the company keeps him engaged and challenged. True to the culture of the company, Steve regularly enjoys outdoor physical activity including regular year-round swims in the San Francisco Bay sans wetsuit. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Email Steve

He’s also the co-founder & president of XYZ, focusing on making sure the work gets done to the high standards that XYZ has. Sean’s experience ranges from being a Retoucher to a Project Manager to a Studio Manager...and he used that experience to help found XYZ. When not at work Sean keeps moving with his wife and 4 kids who keep him on the run. Email Sean
