Mondo Mediaworks is a marketing agency specializing in content development for the web. Based in Brattleboro,Vermont, Mondo strives to maximize its clients’ online profile with high-quality social media management, video production, public relations, advertising and website content management. We take pride in our ability to approach new marketing challenges and industries with a steadfast mission of representing our clients to the fullest, regardless of budget or scale.
With a background in traditional media and public relations, Luke Stafford founded Mondo Mediaworks in 2009 as the communication landscape was expanding in exciting ways. The company has since gained a reputation for crafting high quality content made for the web. Mondo continues to innovate and grow as the demand for video, PR services, social media management, email marketing and SEO-friendly copywriting increases in the rapidly changing times.
There’s an old saying about Internet marketing: “Content is king.” But knowing how to concept, create and distribute that content is where Mondo separates itself from competitors. As the Internet becomes more and more vital to business communications, Mondo remains dedicated to the importance of the engaging content that fuels it. Our goal is to usher businesses into the digital age and help them craft effective messaging and engaging content that stimulates their audience.
Luke Q. Stafford, Founder and Chief
Luke is the founder and chief of Mondo Mediaworks. Since his first job as an intern at his hometown newspaper, Luke’s career has focused on creating great content. He started Mondo with one overarching goal for all of the company’s clients: engage the audience.
Luke lives in Williamsville, Vermont with his wife and two daughters. When he’s not steering Mondo, he’s snowboarding, DJing, tinkering with his vintage Triumph motorcycle or out exploring the Green Mountains.
Luke’s early career as a writer and editor reverberates through Mondo today. All of the marketing campaigns and content produced at Mondo cross Luke’s desk, where it is honed to have maximum efficacy for the intended audience.
Meryl Robinson, Coordinator
As Mondo’s Coordinator, Meryl is the primary point person for our clients. She oversees public relations and social media campaigns, and makes sure deadlines are nailed. In addition to crafting custom content from scratch, Meryl plays a key role in developing strategy for marketing campaigns and executing them to get results.
A native upstate New Yorker, Meryl is a fresh face now living in Brattleboro, Vermont. A fondness for excellent cuisine, oddities and swimming holes takes her to hidden corners of Vermont and beyond.
Meryl will listen to your challenges and goals, then lead her team to craft marketing strategies that get results. The content constantly flowing from Mondo’s desks doesn’t make it past Meryl unless it’s the best possible work we can produce. From HTML to SEO to media lists to memes, Meryl’s on top of it.
Shane McFalls, Videographer
Shane started out making ski videos on a Sony VX-1000. Camera gear has come a long way since then, and so has Shane. After a dozen years of filming all over the world, Shane has settled in southern Vermont to produce, shoot and edit award-winning videos for Mondo’s clients. In addition to managing our ever-growing team of editors, actors, voiceover talent and graphic artists, Shane is on-site at video shoots to direct and see the entire production through to delivery.
Shane is a die-hard twin-tip skier. On weekends, you’ll find him honing new tricks on his skateboard at Vermont skate parks, or waist deep in a stream somewhere, fly fishing. Shane bikes 12 miles to and from work every day that it’s not below 32 degrees (and sometimes even then). He’s also really into his cat, Fleetwood (yes, after Fleetwood Mac. It’s the only band Shane and his wife, Allie, can agree on).
Shane is a jedi in the Adobe Creative Suite, with most of his time spent in Premiere and Photoshop, plus Final Cut (but no one really uses Final Cut anymore). He can operate almost any type of camera you set in front of him, from an old shoulder-mounted VHS to the newest Panasonic GH4.
Mike Ranellone, Curator
Mike is Mondo’s newest team member, joining us as an English/Music major from St. Lawrence University. As Mondo’s curator, Mike is the creative force behind all of Mondo’s clients’ social media content. He also writes unique, engaging content for blogs, press releases and email blasts. The dude is witty with a pen, that’s for sure.
You can find Mike tearing up the ski slopes of New England during the snowy months and ripping down single tracks on his mountain bike in the summer. If you hear sweet, silky music wafting through Brattleboro some evening, odds are it is Mike practicing his cello (Mike’s an accomplished cellist).
Mike can write press releases on a time crunch, craft Facebook posts that attract comments and likes, shoot photos, tweak a blog post for maximum search engine optimization and live-tweet an event with creative efficiency. As a young communicator who grew up in the digital and social media age, Mike brings an edge to Mondo’s work that keeps content fresh and inviting.
Nick Betit, Analyst
As Mondo’s analyst, Nick oversees Mondo’s campaign tracking and performance. He is constantly crunching numbers and running tests to increase the effectiveness of our campaigns. In addition to optimizing Mondo’s campaigns, Nick makes sure that Mondo’s back-end web operations are running smoothly.
Nick grew up in southern Vermont and graduated from the University of Vermont with a degree in Marketing and Statistics. When not at Mondo, you can find him tinkering with computers, working on web projects, or playing piano.
Carrying a blackbelt in AdWords and Analytics, Nick can take a massive set of data and extract every ounce of value from it. A self-proclaimed “tech junkie”, Nick is always up-to-date with the latest trends and innovations in the tech industry.
Tim Brady, Strategist
As a successful and driven entrepreneur, Tim brings a strong business sense and strategic mindset to the Mondo planning table. His diverse experience runs the gamut from marketing to hospitality, tourism and most recently, alchemy — enhancing his reputation as a knowledgable source in every industry he enters.
Tim lives in Brattleboro, Vermont with his wife, business partner and fellow beer-lover Amy and their dog, Thor. When he’s not speaking at conferences or strategizing for Mondo clients, he’s concocting the next batch of beer in his downtown micro-brewery, Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery.
Tim is a master of the 30,000-foot view. His knack for looking at the big picture and prescribing cures for even the most fledging of marketing plans has brought countless clients from losing to leading.
Wyatt Andrews, Shooter/Editor
Wyatt is shooter/editor for Mondo’s award-winning video productions. A self-confessed “camera nerd,” Wyatt stays religiously current on the latest camera gear and editing techniques, plus the latest viral video trends sweeping the web.
Wyatt was born and raised in southern Vermont and graduated from Castleton State College with a communications degree. When not on the job you can often find him outdoors making music and enjoying the natural beauty of New England.
Since high school, Wyatt has been producing videos that walk the fine line between artistic and impactful. As video becomes more and more important in today’s content-fueled internet landscape, Wyatt knows which video concepts will draw the biggest engagement. His skill lies in turning those concepts into reality.
