Creative partners

THIS IS Our Process


Teamwork is the key to success. Collaborating with our client partners to understand their needs & agendas and pair them with experienced Pulse Creative members has been the foundation of our best work. Through collaboration, we accomplish bigger things than we would going at it alone.


We pride ourselves in creating multi-faceted solutions across all platforms and environments against an evolving, fast-paced world. Creating goes beyond just pretty pictures. We create purpose, awareness and conversation. And we develop content that resonates with today’s consumer – from soup to nuts; from pixel to print; from desktop to mobile, and from mobile to beyond.


Through smart marketing based on research and strategic thinking, Pulse Creative connects brands to people. Connecting every dot is crucial. Our dedicated research and strategy teams collect the proper data and analytics to always stay ahead of the curve. Pair that with a versatile design/production team and you’ll be engaging with your audience in no time.


Since 2004, our reputation has grown from being a small boutique agency to winning national and international awards year after year. These accolades define the caliber of our work throughout the years, and our commitment to quality for our clients.

Executive Leadership


Monica Alvarez-Mitchell

Essence Visionary

Monica wears a multitude of hats for the company. To try and pinpoint exactly what she does might actually miss the point of who she really is. Her variety of skills includes photo retouching, composing creative blurbs, brand strategizing and Pulse’s ultimate Creative Director.

Notable Clients: Dance With Me, A&M, Disney, LG, Apl.de.Ap, Ralph Lauren, Hostess, Steve Madden


Jason Tsai

Creative Sensei

As one of the veterans of Pulse Creative, Jason has mastered the ability to rotate his head in a constant 360° motion & grow extra limbs to get the job done. Design and direct? Sure. Research and strategize? Done. Wipe poop from a baby’s butt (three in his case) and do super dad stuff? Effortlessly.

Notable Clients: A&M, Apl.de.Ap, Barclays Center, BoConcept, Disney, DuJour, LG Electronics, The ONE Group


Dhareza Maramis

Creative Zombie

Dhareza serves as one of Pulse Creative’s creative directors, where he spends his days & nights making things look pretty. He is intensely dedicated in growing the company’s clients. When not in the office, he can be seen in tights or armor at conventions as a professional cosplayer.

Notable Clients: Dentsu Aegis Media, Persistent Systems, Disney, Time Warner Cable, LG


Allison Sacco

Creative Drill Sergeant

Allison jumps around doing what needs to get done at work. Some days, she is a financial reports machine. Other days, you’ll find her crafting invitations or behind a computer focused on photo retouching. On interesting days, you will find her with a bullhorn corralling the Pulse Creative herd.

Account management


Melanie Ediza

Account Angel

Melanie’s tenacity towards excellence is rivaled only by her dedication to bringing fun to all projects she oversees. As a seasoned multi-tasker, it’s easy for her to compose social media campaigns, close big-ticket deals, and take a selfie with a glass of vodka in her hand at a gala she organized.

Notable Clients: A&M, M Science, A3, Pinoy Relief


Schaeffer Kuzman

Account Maverick

Primed with a smile and an arsenal of dad jokes, Schaeffer lends his variety of expertise wherever needed for any project. A man of many hats, he has the ability to coordinate events, brainstorm the next big social campaign, or even teach client’s how to surf out in Rockaway on the weekend.

Notable Clients: M Science, OsteoStrong


Pulse Core


David Alvarez

Pixel Overlord

Direction is helpful, specifically with the art department, which is David’s role as – you guessed it – Art Director. A jack of many creative trades, his strongest assets are being a Brooklyn native, defender of animals worldwide, and a connoisseur of sounds over 200 BPM, yet as slow as 20 BPM.

Notable Clients: Persistent Systems, Apl.de.Ap, Pinoy Relief, A3, A&M


Kelly-Ann Thompson

Creative Empress

Wake up, eat, design, laugh a little… sometimes a lot, jam to music, spend time with her daughter. Repeat.  All of this is fueled by 5% coffee, 25% whipped cream, 20% caramel & 50% sugar while creating email blasts, websites, logo branding, photo retouching… just to name a few.

Notable Clients: M Science, PowerPlay, Courtyard Farm, A&M, WLS, jumaFit


Matt Marshall

Creative Slayer

He uses his super powers to turn this massive amount of data into real actionable insights that drive sales and ROI for his clients.

Notable Clients: A&M, Belvedere, Highview Capital, PowerPlay NYC, Persistent Systems, M Science


Amanda Luna

Office Butterfly

Luna’s role has her jumping all over, and believe me, it’s just her speed. Her free time is spent restoring vintage clothing, designing for her own upcoming line, and cosplaying all over the USA! Though Luna’s true love is fashion, she actually went to school for Pastry Arts!


Pulse Echoes


Nicole Marsiglia

Content Artisan

Live music enthusiast. True crime aficionado. Unproclaimed hippie. Social media content developer. There always seems to be a party at Nicole’s desk – yet she didn’t invite anyone.

Notable Clients: A&M, OsteoStrong, BirdieNow, Persistent Systems


Benjamin Starr

Content Guardian

Pop culture fiend. Foodie. Self-proclaimed “Renaissance man.” Benjamin brings creative thinking and enthusiasm to ensure his clients’ stories are told in a meaningful way. When he’s not in the office, you can find him watching cartoons or reciting pointless facts about things you’ve never heard of.

Notable Clients: Persistent Systems, A&M, Hogs Head Golf Club

As an integral member of the video team and a 3D artist, Steve shares his skills with a background in television & film post-production. Being technical and extremely creative, he always pushes the boundaries of a project and helps it go from “oh that’s nice” to “holy $#*%, that’s amazing!!!”
