A passionate team of creative thinkers, writers, producers, directors and editors who love making videos that make you look good.
Ted is a former TV reporter and walk-on kicker for the University of Texas football team. He founded Castleview in 1999 as a one-man operation with one client. Since then, he’s assembled an impressive team, built the business into a full-service video agency and still managed to keep that first client happy and coming back each and every year.
Carter grew up using his parents’ camcorder to shoot music videos. (They were really just videos of his friends lip-syncing to Duran Duran, but his mom seemed to like them.) Now with 20+ years in advertising, a Cannes Lion and multiple Super Bowl spots to his credit, he’s creating entertaining content for the rest of the world.
Sonia is the soul of Castleview. With a long history of producing ads for TV, she’s the master of keeping things running on-time and within budget. She’s also the person we turn to when we need someone to answer 80s music trivia, dish celebrity gossip or go above and beyond the call of duty.
Dan does everything fast. Maybe it’s because he literally runs on Jelly Belly Candies and 7-11 Double Gulps. Whatever it is, it’s working. A four-time Emmy Award-winning editor, he consistently churns out beautiful edits at breakneck speeds.
Heather is a dog-loving Texan whose accomplishments include creating a show for Animal Planet and climbing the highest peak in New Mexico. Her cheerful demeanor combined with her incomparable drive makes her one of those rare producers who gets the job done right every time while always treating clients with the utmost kindness.
Parker enjoys sci-fi, photography and changing his hairstyle more than anyone else on the team. An accomplished editor with a knack for rhythm and storytelling, he’s also our resident motion graphics expert.
Lily is a pilot-in-training who can recite all 50 U.S. states in alphabetical order and has a 4th degree brown belt in Taekwondo. With nearly a decade of post-production experience, she's not only a talented editor, she’s also the one who keeps our post department organized.
Valentina is a squirrel-obsessed Russian who can take down a Kamchatka brown bear in less than a minute. A quintessential team player, she's as likely to greet you when you walk through our front door as she is to be seen lugging equipment on set or acting in one of our videos.
Kat was born a Brit but always fancied herself a Texan. So, after working for ad agencies in Australia and the UK, she made her way to Austin where she heads up our strategy and new business efforts. A tireless networker, she already knows more people in this city than the rest of us combined. She’s also very proud of her pickup truck.
