Chris is the alpha dog that guides PML to success. As the owner of the company, Chris is in charge. One of Chris’ coolest achievements is being inducted into the Villanova Hall of Fame for Swimming. To raise awareness for hamster gingivitis, he rode a bike across a 7-11 parking lot raising over $37 in Shake n Bake coupons. In 1979 at the age of 12, Chris had not yet passed his driver’s test. As recently as 3 months ago, he had eaten an egg salad sandwich. Chris spends much of his free time describing the facial architecture of the cast of “Three’s Company” to police sketch artists. He credits staying fit by only eating meals while sprinting the 110 meter hurdles. Chris was never credited for co-writing many of the B-side singles for the southern rock band 38 Special. He won a karaoke contest sponsored by “Depends” by singing the song “London Bridge is Falling Down”. Chris is now working on building the first ever “green” city in Pennsylvania called “Martian Town”.
Starting as a fresh-faced intern with Propulsion all the way back when Friends was still airing on TV, Mike Remp has basically been with the company from the beginning. Despite his self-professed face for radio and voice for print, Mike proves that if you just hang around a place long enough, they’ll eventually put you in charge. As the father of two young teenagers, Mike’s free time is generally spent mediating arguments and fighting them for time on the Xbox where he currently holds the rank of Diamond III in Rocket League. It’s OK to be impressed. A mystery of science, Mike’s body seems to be comprised of a mixture of Chinese food, vape juice and coffee.
Born in the backseat of a VW Microbus in the parking lot of a vacant K-Mart, Christian still gets a little misty every time he hears the words “blue light special.” He loves two things about Philadelphia – (1) the Phillies and (2) the Phillies. He’d name a third but that requires math. He is also a huge fan of mob movies, and watches them whenever he has time, unlike his uncle Vito ‘Duct Tape’ DeLuccia, who has lots of time – 5 years left on a 28 year stretch at Shawshank. At his interview at PML, he told Chris Craft that he wanted to get into advertising in the worst way, and Chris said, “Well, this is it.”
For a company that works with a lot of automotive clients, our account coordinator Ben is a perfect fit. Ben LOVES cars. . .A LOT. He loves them so much that he actually took a 1987 Toyota Corolla to his senior prom. How he got it into the gym for the couple’s portrait is a still mystery, but there’s no doubt after the dance he ended up in the back seat. He’s also the only man in the world known to brush his teeth with a specially adapted pneumatic impact wrench. And if that wasn’t enough, his ringtone on his phone is none other than the theme from The Fast and The Furious 3: Tokyo Drift.
When Matt isn’t turning TV spot concepts into bricks of gold, he’s saving the lives of animals from the depths of despair. When it comes to animal care, Matt makes Noah look like Cruella Deville. Matt owns a couple animals, including 2 dogs, a bird, a cat, five dolphins, three kangaroos and a unicorn. Okay, maybe not the last couple but you get the idea.
When he’s not being mistaken for Zach Galifanakis, Andrew is behind the camera shooting footage or busting out motion-graphic masterpieces in After Effects. He’ll often stroll around the office with his “pimp stick” to make sure none of his subordinates get out of line because (as he says) “Pimpin ain’t easy, but it’s necessary.” If you catch him at the right moment, you may witness one of his awesome dance routines with extremely original moves that he learned from N’SYNC. He lives his life by a simple philosophy, ”I don’t really ever know what I’m doing.”
Tom, in his fashionable Adidas track jacket and designer sneakers, works down in one of the audio dungeons. Subsisting on a diet of Chicken McNuggets and Mountain Dew, he’s the resident ProTools aficionado, and he supervises a majority of the voice talent sessions – which is the only time he’s allowed contact with other humans during the day. Tom is first to admit he’s the lone super-fan of the 80’s sitcom “Night Court”, and he’s famous for quoting the animated series, Pinky and the Brain. One of his favorites is “never underestimate the power of a free t-shirt.”
Video Editor Jeff Belcher comes from a long line of Belchers. He likes his coffee black and his beer cold. A proud graduate of the Art Institute of Philadelphia, Jeff got his start by answering one of those ads in the back of a comic book saying “Can you draw this? Then you may be an artist!” He spent a number of years working in restaurants, where his last name came in very handy. He’s actually kept a record of how many times people have said to his face, “Belcher? I just met ‘er!” The count is now up to 3,802. 3,803 if you count this bio. Jeff shares his time with his cat, Leia, named after – you guessed it – the 3rd baseman for the 1970 Chicago Cubs, Billy Joe Leia. Jeff is also a lover of movies and of the sport of Kings, bowling. He once tried bowling during a movie and is now no longer welcome in several area theaters.
Josh Watkins can usually be found in the break room reminiscing about his time with the Philadelphia Eagles. As a star intern there, he single-handedly led the team to their first ever Super Bowl victory. Josh currently lives just outside of Philadelphia in the quaint neighborhood of Manayunk. Bonus points if you know how to pronounce it. Josh’s heritage is actually 2/3 Giant. At 9’7” (we estimated), he’s actually debated having his legs shortened, but Propulsion’s healthcare doesn’t cover it. For now, we’ll just stock up on bandages for when he cracks his head on the doorways.
Susan is the financial superglue that holds PML together. Between processing invoices and paying all the bills, she’s solely responsible for instituting book-balancing as an official event in the 2020 Summer Olympics. The default “mom” of the group, she’s even been known to call employees to make sure they wake-up on time, especially Matt.
