Blake Goble

Technical Project Manager

Blake Goble

Technical Project Manager

Blake comes from the land of sunshine and surfers but much prefers his music venues dimly-lit, filled with hardcore jams.

Obsessive of clean inboxes, SciFi, and being the proudest new member of the parenthood crew - assume all puns intended.

Chris McGuire

Web Developer

Chris McGuire

Web Developer

Chris is self-described as a medium-sized houseplant. He likes to spend most of his time in dry soil with only the occasional drink of water. The key to a happy Chris is good soil drainage, and believe us, he starts to wilt with too much water. When he’s not sipping on indirect sunlight he likes to lean slightly towards the window. PS, he’s a great web developer.

Don Elliott

President, Managing Partner

Don Elliott

President, Managing Partner

Don leads Gravitate as a compassionate visionary, dedicated to creating positive change for people. As a natural commander of growth and a pristine track record of scaling multiple national agencies, he has shown his dedication towards the community and clients alike. Don’t mistake him for being all business though… he’s casually a non-fiction writer, Dungeon Master, and a scotch connoisseur. And just like the perfect balance of a glass of Oban 18, Don is equal parts of creativity and getting shit done.

Gary is a Vancouver-born and raised native. During his time off, he’s online exploring digital worlds, working on his car, or exploring the great Pacific Northwest, taking photos along the way.

Jason Lance

Creative Director

Jason Lance

Creative Director

If you want to know what Jason is up to on a given day, check his headwear. When wearing his short-brimmed hat — slightly askew — he's digging into deep strategy or focused on design. If you can see his hair — generally freshly cut and coiffed — it's presentation day; look for him in the conference or white board rooms leading the charge with one of our clients. When he's not at his desk, look for Jason killing at ping-pong, cultivating his review site of the best mac and cheese in town, or telling stories of Gravitate back in the day (he's been here 17 years!).

Lorena Elliott

Finance Coordinator

Lorena Elliott

Finance Coordinator

Hailing from Torreón, Mexico, Lorena comes from a long career as a dancer, choreographer, and instructor. Equal parts artist and technician, she has an eye for detail and brings passion to everything she does from coordinating finances to corralling the CEO.

When she's not crunching numbers you can find Lo hiking in the gorge, watching guilty pleasures on TV, or lounging by a heated pool listening to Silk Sonic and 90's neo-soul but really you can find her with friends and a glass of prosecco singing Coda at karaoke—and it's probably the eighth song of the night.

Lukas Leary

Director of Sales

Lukas Leary

Director of Sales

Born in the frigid north—well beyond the tame Northwest—Lukas was forced to fend for himself at a young age and checks all the stereotypical Alaskan boxes. He’s tall, mustachioed, wears western vests, and knows how to domesticate a moose (wait, what?!). More importantly for Gravitate’s day-to-day, he comes from a family of entrepreneurs and understands both the challenges and rewards of marketing your business.

Pete Sherwood

Director of Content Strategy

Pete Sherwood

Don’t let the ever-present hat fool you (he took it off for this one photo), Pete is "all business" when it comes to taking websites from good to great. Pete writes compelling copy for users as well as search engines, and while he's sensitive about his overuse of em-dashes, he's constantly churning out succinct, targeted copy for clients in a variety of industries.
