OUR LEADERSHIP

Edgy. Cultured. Innovative. Collaborative. Honest. Detail-oriented. Experienced.

JD Gagnon

Founder & Managing Director

After running several successful startups and businesses, JD founded Scotch & Ramen Media in 2017. With a background in digital, social, and ecommerce marketing, he saw there was a major gap in the marketplace for medium sized companies who needed the in-house experience from an outside team. Passionate about processes, systems, and optimization, he is the champion of this carefully selected team of marketing and branding experts.

Steph Stonecipher

Director of Global Branding & Public Relations

Stephanie was born and raised in Indiana, which is where she spends the time between her travels and adventures. In her early thirties, she returned to Indiana University at Bloomington to obtain a second university degree. She then spent years living in England and working in London as a Media Analyst. She specializes in Global Branding, Trends, Predictions, and Public Relations at Scotch & Ramen Media, Inc.

In her free time, Stephanie enjoys spending time outdoors, hiking and napping. She is currently trying to relearn and perfect the French language (it’s not going very well) and she has a never-ending obsession with current events, pop culture, breaking news, and weather.

Aaron Atkins

Art Director

Aaron has been sharpening his graphic design skills for over 9 years. He’s worked in-house, for design agencies as well as freelanced for most of his career. His creative sense and attention to detail set him apart from most. Graphic design isn’t his only passion though. He has his hand in many creative cookie jars, including experience in 3D modeling, photography, videography, scriptwriting, acting, and music production. He’s always looking for the next creative outlet to learn and experience. Aaron is happily married to his best friend and together, he and his wife have two beautiful children.

Steven Aldous

Chief Web Developer

Living up in the mossy woods of Mt. Baker, Steven has been building responsive and ADA compliant websites for more than three years. Steven makes sure his code is always well-commented and builds components to make them easy to update and maintain, something he takes great pride in. When a new challenge is put in front of him, he gets excited to learn new skills and ALWAYS finds a solution. When Steven is not behind a keyboard, you can find him pedaling a bike (road or mountain), snowboarding, camping, or hiking with his wife and beagle.

Brandon Keats

Video Producer

Born and raised in St. John’s Newfoundland, Brandon began his exploration of technology through volunteering at his local church and it wasn’t long until he found himself working in television at the incredibly young age of thirteen. He INSTANTLY had a passion for the creative process and the thrill of live television. He then moved to Calgary for university where he obtained his degree in Television Production. Outside of being a complete technology geek (his words, not ours), Brandon spends a lot of his time mountain biking, skiing, and anything adventurous that absolutely terrifies his mother.

Ashley Reutlinger

Project Manager

Raised on a farm in rural Alberta has instilled a strong work ethic into Ashley and that is something in which she takes great pride in. She learned at a young age that hard work and dedication are the two most valuable traits of any career.
Ashley has held a multitude of contracts ranging from large sporting associations to oilfield construction simultaneously, all of which have given her a new perspective to push the boundaries for improvements. Evaluating needs, quality assurance, managing deadlines and pushing limits are her essentials. She enjoys the challenge of tackling difficult projects and providing meaningful results. When Ashley isn’t working, you can find her and her boys playing lacrosse or training for the upcoming season.

Starting in January 2019, we’ve committed to taking on one pro-bono case each quarter. These will be passion projects that we treat just like every other relationship, only the organization won’t be paying us a cent.

We’re looking for organizations and causes that have the potential to reach and impact people on a massive scale. We want to partner with others who are as passionate as we are about serving others and giving back, but aren’t in the financial position to seek help.
