Where to find us
8th Floor – Quad A
Step off the elevator onto Inspire Brands' 8th floor. Now look down. See that finger pointing you in the right direction? Go the other way! (We like to forge our own path.) Grab a drink, and soon you'll find yourself surrounded by the invigorating energy of Maverick Studios.
The Content Kitchen
Inspire Brands remains hungry for content in a “digital first” world. Located at Inspire Brands Innovation Center, the Content Kitchen allows us to feed the content supply chain for our entire family of brands at a scale never seen before. When we combine our world-class Innovation Center with production infrastructure that would make Hollywood envious, we unlock the ability to make content, with purpose, all the time.
Our VP is a true Maverick. At home, Chris is a big kid playing in the dirt with his backhoe. At work, he’s using his curiosity and experience as a partner of an ad agency and six years with Jimmy John’s marketing team to guide Maverick Studios to success.
Laura, our Associate Creative Director, is a triple threat. She’s a graphic designer with over ten years of experience, a great mom, and a marathoner! Find her at Rusty Taco digging into her favorite meal with a Rusty Margarita.
Starting as the Associate Creative Director at Interface, Rodrigo, a fast motorcyclist and family man, said good luck would be his superpower. We must have that power already because we are lucky to have him as our Associate Creative Director!
With a background at SCAD in Advertising and Branding, Daranie became a passionate designer on our team! When she isn’t curating incredible content, she’s secretly trying to sneak Sonic’s Atomic Lemon Slush back onto the menu.
Some may call him our Senior Graphic Designer, but he calls himself High Metabolism Man! When Mike isn’t at his desk or helping junior designers, you may find him munching on his daily dose of Baskin Robbins’ Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. Yum!
With extensive experience working for media and ad agencies like BBDO South, Bob is our Senior Production Artist, and we couldn’t be happier! Aside from designing and getting donuts from Dunkin’, he stays busy being a great dad and husband.
Born in Bandung, Indonesia, Angie moved to the states when she was just 18 months old. Today, she’s our accomplished Senior Graphic Designer who can take on any requests and spicy foods that come her way. No wonder she’s a fan of BDUBS’ Mango Habanero wings!
At the outset of his career, Joshua was a designer at a non-profit art center called Intermedia Arts and eventually designed retail displays for Adidas. Now, he’s a valued Senior Graphic Designer at Maverick Studios who loves Dunkin’ Chocolate Créme donuts!
With past experience as the Coca-Cola Account Lead of StudioNow, Lauren has sure opened happiness here at Maverick Studios! When our Director of Production isn’t in the office, you can find her drinking Dunkin’ Bold Tea, jogging with her running club, spending time with her family, and not eating fruit (she’s allergic)!
Though Lorena wasn’t born into the fire-bending nation as she had hoped, she is a citizen of three different countries and an FSU Graduate! Due to her experience and passion, we celebrate Lorena for her talent as our Senior Graphic Designer
After 30 years as a professional photographer, our Director of Photography is the epitome of talent. Jonathan is also an amateur radio operator, camper, hockey player, and motorcyclist with a need for speed! What can’t he do?
As a kid, Kyle was terrified of watching scary movies. Now, he’s a horror film fanatic, inspired to pursue a career in video editing. After over five years working at Dunkin’, Kyle joined the Maverick team to focus on his passion.
Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines. We’ve got a Red Bull Athlete in the house! Our talented Video Specialist has competed in the Red Bull Soapbox Race 3x and even came in 3rd place in 2009!

With his racing background, it’s no wonder he stays on track!

Kaitlin started working for Jimmy John’s over eight years ago. Now, she’s our Senior Digital Marketing Manager! If she had a superpower, it would be the ability to teleport. It makes sense when you find out Kaitlin grew up next to a nuclear power plant!
Born and raised in Germany, Natalie Garvey is our resident Military Brat and Director of Client Relations & Planning. Before joining Inspire, she worked for Yum Brands for over 18 years. Without a doubt, Natalie is an avid QSR fan and dog lover. While she would love her superpower to be flying, we see her soar at Maverick Studios every day!
Doug is our monster truck driving, Studio Services Manager, and a great one at that! Before joining Maverick Studios, he worked as a Creative Manager for Buffalo Wild Wings. No wonder his favorite food is their Traditional Wings with blue cheese!
Callie found her way through her Film and Digital Media degree by baking and shaking cocktails! Being the Foodie she is, it makes sense that she found her way to Maverick Studios, where she can market for all the tasty food our brands offer.

Sing us a song, Jason’s our piano man! With almost 10 years of experience in print and digital design, he’s been killing it as a Print Production Artist here at Maverick Studios. He’s a gamer, a whiz at piano, and loves a classic Arby’s Roast Beef Sandwich. Jason is a rare find… he’s left-handed!
Hey MTV, welcome to Toby’s. With an impressive career as a producer/editor for MTV making promos for A-listers like Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Drake, 50 Cent, Rihanna, Snoop Dogg and more, we keep asking for his autograph!

Joining us after 5yrs of sandwiching it up at Jimmy John’s, our Digital Strategist has worked on several projects with big-name brands like Nike, Adidas and Atlanta Fashion Week!

Christy brings the power of peace from the East!
Keeping us all in our lanes, our Traffic Coordinator is preventing crashes here at Maverick Studios! Working at Zaxby’s for 10 years, Stephanie is very familiar with all things chicken, so it’s no wonder she makes Buffalo Wild Wings work a breeze! She loves the beach, Baskin-Robbins Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream, and making her daughter’s clothes. We’re “sew” excited this seamstress has joined our team!
Devin’s passionate about everything design! On top of his extensive portfolio of graphic design projects for brands like Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, he also enjoys writing and illustrating stories, designing characters and printing models on his 3D printer! We never know what this designer is going to do next, but his twin does… apparently twin telepathy is real. His twin says “what’s up”
A foodie at heart, our Client Relations Manager has been working on restaurant brands from the start. We’re so lucky to have scooped her from 22Squared so now she can work on Baskin-Robbins with us! Outside of work, Carly loves hanging out with her dog, Pancake, and trying new restaurants for her Atlanta food Instagram!
Lights, camera, Olivia! Our lovely production intern arrived at Maverick after graduating from University of Kentucky in May 2023.
