Ronda Ball (Managing Editor): “I love to watch an idea become a reality.

Matt Briner (SeniorDesigner):Matt has been a designer and creative genius since he entered his first coloring contest. Now he designs everything from books to websites for international companies.He rides a custom chopper and wears a Captain America helmet. “I like to see what’s new from skateboards to architecture. Everything I see gives me reason to design.”
Yvonne Mazzotta (Co-Publisher): “My mom says I used to pose for all of my pictures by looking at the ads in magazines and on TV. I guess I was inspired by advertising at an early age.” A seasoned professional from InHouse Marketing who’s worked in the beauty industry for over 15 years. “Beauty is a look and feel we can bring to every industry.Discovering the beauty in every business and fashioning stories to brand a company is what moves me.”
Michelle Adams (Co-Publisher): “Making things right with a real appreciation for beauty is important to me. It’s a trait I picked up from my mom at an early age.”Her mom, a schoolteacher for over 30 years, helped her realize the importance of respect and “the red pen." Michelle, also a fine artist, just finished a mural for her new daughter’s nursery. She makes refinement and grace appear effortless.
JamesMazzotta (Photographer&SalesDirector):His dad always said he was an elusive butterfly, a trait he inherited from his mother’s side, floating from one thing to the next. “I’ve always wanted to do everything… at the age of 7, I would ride my bike to UC Santa Barbara and sell sodas at the outdoor concerts.” From graphic designer to computer technician to “Room Dad” for his eight year old’s classroom, James, is a true entrepreneur.
