PERSONALIZING THE EXPERIENCE
Bring your human to work
It takes a lot of people, working in a lot of departments, to make up an agency. Although our operations keep us all working together in harmony, we think it’s well worth your time to get to know the faces of the individuals you’ll partner with.

CEO & President
Passionate about sales, marketing, technology, executive leadership, and all things entrepreneurship. As with most CEOs, Kevin burns the midnight oil and is hungry for growth—but it doesn’t stop there.

Find him surfing, woodworking, and exploring Ventura with his drone.
Chief Canine Officer
It’s pretty simple, really. I’m the cutest member of the Vonazon team. In the words of my idol Derek Zoolander, “I’m pretty sure there’s a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking. And I plan on finding out what that is.” If and when I do, I’ll provide an update. Passionate about fitness, napping, tormenting the cat, and chewing shoes. Not necessarily in that order.
Chief Furry Officer
I know. I’m cute. Like, really, really cute. I get that a lot. But there’s more to me than just this adorable fluff. As Chief Furry Officer, I work really hard at keeping all these humans in line, and by that, I mean getting them to pet me on demand. It’s really not that hard when you look like a Teddy Bear. Outside of the office, you can find me surfing the waves; a new favorite pastime of mine. When you live at the beach, it’s hard not to be a surfer, dude. Or….as I like to say, Surfer DOOD.
