Check out Steve's amazing art at 

Steve Clevenger is a project manager, production manager and approximately 47 other things at a small ad agency. When he occasionally comes up for air, he'd rather be sculpting, drawing or painting. Steve is currently taking himself "back to school" to focus on some fundamentals, hone underdeveloped skills, and hopefully flex some new artistic muscle. Steve is a liberal with a conservative past, an atheist that was once a born-again evangelical, and briefly a Franciscan Seminarian. And he absolutely cannot believe how old he is and yet still isn't really sure what he wants to be when he grows up. Most importantly, of course, he's been great friends with Bob Baty-Barr for well over twenty years.

Kris is electrically energetic yet deeply soulful as she guides her clients to surrender the "shoulds", create the "coulds", and back themselves all the way.
