Partner / Creative Ninja@ l
Ninjas are known for their ability to accomplish incredible feats by using stealth tactics, calm precision and stunning quickness. Jack Castellano has combined these strengths in a number of senior roles, working with many significant clients including Xyience, Tiff, and Cott. Jack eventually decided to take his creative martial arts skills and form a new clan that would work together to accomplish even more than a single ninja ever could. Unlike the old movies, he has taught this group to always attack together and with a plan to achieve optimal results: award winning work for our clients.
Partner / Digital Sherlock@ l
The only mystery Kris Karski can't solve is why many companies still waste ridiculous amounts of their money on ineffective outdated digital solutions. A true academic, Kris acquired a love of Scooby Snacks while obtaining his B.Sc in Psychology from the University of Toronto. He has worked in and examined every facet of digital media since 1999. His experience and passion for the latest and greatest in the field creates a desire to leave no stone unturned and when he takes on his clients' cases.
Usually when a Jewish guy opens an envelope, there's a bill or a doctor's notice - not a task requiring killer concepts. After acquiring his Honours BA at York University, David started working as a copywriter. Eventually he worked his way up to Creative Director and now helps Engine with creative sharp-shooting. A combination of old-school creativity with an understanding of today's digital market makes him a headache assassin; the guy who makes marketing problems go away... quietly.
Interplanetary Creative Ambassador@
If you've ever wondered where those great "out of this world" ideas come from, the answer is beings like Bill Argus. Bill has transwarped to different agencies and won advertising awards throughout the universe for over 25 years. His expertise in traditional media and overall experience gives Engine a classical perspective into great creative and the human psyche. We suspect he may be planning an invasion for his species, but until then, we're happy to reap the benefits of his undercover identity.
Senior Account Maverick@ l
Meet a man who plays by his own rules, yet always puts the client first (even before his country). Anthony Ferraro flew through Centennial College, earning a post graduate degree in Advertising Account Management and flew missions for companies like Universal Music, where he created and implemented artist strategies via traditional and social media. Now, when he's not taking out bogeys, he's handling clients' accounts with expertise and precision.

Using a combination of the force and his Digital Media Arts degree from Seneca College, Lee has mastered graphic and web design, providing attractive and effective solutions for rebel clients across the universe.
Senior Web Surgeon@ g t
'Hacking' sounds so sloppy when you watch the precision with which Ish Kumar works. His ability to develop and design architecture of database web driven applications using open heart... sorry... open SOURCE technologies is a true art form. Ish is a true problem solver and loves writing code and providing simple solutions to real time problems.
Senior Graphic Scientist@ f t
Some believe there is no science to art. Those narrow-minded twits haven't met Arash Giani, our mad scientist of artistic design. Arash earned a Bachelor of Graphic Design at Ontario College of Art and Design and has been performing colour and design experiments ever since. His hypothesis is that there is always a design that will suit the audience, our planet and your needs. His conclusion: The right combination of talent and resources will always achieve this goal.
Design Rock Star@
Derek, also known as 'D-Rock' joined the Engine team with two goals: To bring interactive design to a new level, and to hide from the pack of love-starved groupies whose relentless pursuit forced him to abandon his home. With experience in marketing/advertising agencies, as well as 200-seat arenas (also known as his high school gym), Derek has worked on Samsung, Blackberry, Hockey.com, and he is currently composing a rock opera for his stage adaptation of Dances with Wolves.
Senior Account Maverick's Supervisor@ l Q
Just when you thought the Senior Account Maverick was awesome, his improvement came along - superior in every way. Carboard Anthony is quieter, more focused, less abrasive and has the flattest abs of anyone in the office. His only weakness is water. Unlike the Senior Account Maverick, Cardboard Anthony is less about guts and more about glory. In addition to his supervising duties, Cardboard Anthony has proven to be a great listener. Clients appreciate his ability to absorb their punishment without retaliating. Cardboard Anthony enjoys being carried on long walks on the beach and is in a relationship with a cardboard cutout of Baywatch's Yasmine Bleeth.
