Brighton is growing! And today we’re introducing two of our newest Brightonian’s. Matt and Travis are both young, aspiring men. Get to know each of them and the talents they bring to the agency!

Matt Taylor



Where are you from?
St. Louis – born and raised.


Do you have a spouse, kids, pets?
Not married, no kids.  No pets, but I have a couple aloe plants I've managed to keep alive since college.  I’m definitely a dog person, though.  Cats are jerks.


Before Brighton, what was your professional role?
I worked as New Media Art Director at a small marketing agency here in St. Louis.


Now, what is your current title at Brighton? …and what does this role entail?
My title is Multimedia Producer.  So far, that role entails video and audio production, video editing, motion graphic creation and guardian of dozens and dozens of video hard drives.


Do you have a favorite thing about working at Brighton?
Probably the easy answer, but I have to go with the people. Everybody has been super friendly and welcoming so far. It’s a tie for second between the candy bowl on Sue's desk and the coffee.


What was your first week working at Brighton like?  
Busy - the transition from freelancer to full time employee was relatively smooth, but there are a lot of projects going on and lots to do!


Do you have any hobbies?
I play on a couple different softball teams, I like to cook, I like to run and workout, and I enjoy movies, comics and reading books when I have time…


What is your favorite food?
I like everything.  Except black olives – those taste like dirt.


A fun fact about yourself?
I shot two of my student films in Brighton's old office.


Anything else you would like to add…
I’m a big Cardinals and Mizzou Tigers fan – I love pretty much all sports   I’m a pretty big Star Wars nerd, too…


Travis Coffman



Where are you from?
I’m from a small town outside of Washington, MO called Labadie. However, I currently live in St. Louis.

Do you have a spouse, kids, pets?
I don’t. I do have a pretty great girlfriend, and live with two of my best friends.

Before Brighton, what was your professional role?
Before Brighton, I worked for a fertilizer additive company here in St. Louis as a Marketing Representative. After a few changes within the company, I decided that I would like to work on the agency side, and found a great opportunity at Brighton.

Now, what is your current title at Brighton? …and what does this role entail?
My current title at Brighton is Account Executive. I will be working on the Ag accounts mostly, but will also be a utility man for other clients.

Do you have a favorite thing about working at Brighton?
My favorite thing about Brighton is the laid back atmosphere. Everyone is super friendly and it seems like a fun place to work.

What was your first week working at Brighton like?  
My first week at Brighton was all about learning about Brighton and its clients. It was a lot to soak in, but I was up for the challenge.

Do you have any hobbies?
I love to play to golf, but I’m definitely not a pro.

What is your favorite food?
Pretty much any meat and potato combo is my favorite food.

A fun fact about yourself?
I can’t float.

Anything else you would like to add…
I’m just really excited about starting a new chapter in my life at Brighton. From what I’ve seen so far, this is will be one great chapter!
