Robb is a conversation architect, communication expert, and realistic idealist who started Kickstand to help sustainable brands rise up through a loud and cluttered world.

Back in the 90’s he managed the Motorola, Coke, and Milk accounts at McCracken Brooks in Minneapolis. Then he spent more than a decade in the outdoor industry bringing forward-thinking consumer-focused leadership to well established brands such as the Access Fund, Ojai International, Gramicci, and Ice Breaker. He has a MA in Communication Studies from the University of South Dakota with a consumer research focus on persuasive and environmental communication. Robb has served on the Access Fund Board of Directors, recently received an award from Leave No Trace for Kickstand’s work, and commutes 2800 vertical feet (most of it downhill, truth be told) to work on his bike.

Katie Dunn–

Katie is our systems-thinking awesome-maker. She helps us find and harness the cultural tension needed to create campaigns that break through in a cluttered communication world. She is really awesome. And we are more awesome because we have her.

Her MBA in Sustainable Management from Presidio Graduate School and her previous life as a North Carolina Outward Bound School instructor provides a glimpse of her crushing work ethic. Every client loves her and most want to be her. She leaves a lot to live up to.

Lucia Robinson

The creative fire behind our campaigns. Lucia is the principal of Sustineo Creative, Kickstand’s creative partner. We work together on everything (watch for an exciting announcement soon on our future together).

Sustineo Creative is one of only a small handful of FSC certified design agencies in the country. All their work is focused in sustainability and they’re trying to change the way we all think about green messaging and design. Sustineo makes sustainability sexy!

Andrea Sutherland

Andrea is a Kickstand research reporter and helps gather and analyze interview data and insights. A “real” reporter, Andrea received her masters degree from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Colorado and her work has appeared in the Denver Post, the Coloradoan, the Boulder Daily Camera, and Rocky Mountain PBS.

Aly Nicklas

Aly is our videographer. She runs a production company called JustRight, just like her. That’s why we work with her. She’s also a dreamer, a climber, and she seriously has a pet squirrel…which freaks Robb out.
