Silver Cuellar

Silver Cuellar III is the Creative Director at The Tombras Group in Atlanta, Georgia. He specializes in strategic brand building, Pokémon Go, and facial hair. Silver has spent the past 18 or so years working at McGarrah Jessee, Mullen, The Richards Group and BBDO, on everything from fried chicken to ladies underpants. Along the way he’s been fortunate enough to gather recognition from CA, The One Show, Archive, Obies, Clios and his parent’s refrigerator door. 

Outside of work you can find Silver roving the Georgia countryside, poking around various local barbecue establishments as he is also a self-taught Meat Whisperer. 

Currently, he resides in Roswell, Georgia with his high school sweetheart Susan, their 10-year-old daughter Sophia (the Book-Piranha), 6-year-old Silver IV (the Scotch Tape Enthusiast), wildling 4-year old Simon Bear (the Dino Lord), as well all the forest critter folk lurking in the woodlands of Northern Atlanta.

 

Kathy Martinolich

Kathy Martinolich is a Senior Copywriter at CORNETT in Lexington, Kentucky. In her three years at the agency, she’s worked for clients like Tempur-Sealy International, the University of Kentucky, UK HealthCare, VisitLEX, Sazerac, Lane’s End Farm, and Keeneland. Her projects have won national awards, been recognized in top industry publications, and led her to places you’d never expect a copywriter to go—from helicopter pads to heart surgeries. Prior to working at CORNETT, she was at Lexington agency Zipie and worked in-house at Big Ass Fans, which sells exactly what you’d think.

A card-carrying Kentucky Colonel, Kathy has a varied and unrelated background, with degrees in studio art, art history and historic preservation. She doesn’t use any of them, but fully intends to get the diplomas framed one day. She lives in Lexington with a persnickety retired racing greyhound named Spy.
