When asked what his favorite part about working for Ascent was, he responded "aside from the people, is the creative freedom I get when editing. I've always wanted to make a living using my camera and Ascent has given me the opportunity to do so and I'm incredibly grateful."

Brian Krejci
Content Marketing Specialist

Ask Brian what he brings to the team here at Ascent, and his modest response might be something like, "Decent writing, editing...some strategy." This humble statement would be a restrained minimization of his talents. We are thrilled to have somebody who brings not only high-caliber writing, but also creative strategy and a keen eye for design and production. Blessed with a natural marketing mind and talents, he has 3 years of experience designing sales funnels and creating the content at each level of the customer journey. His kids have flown the nest, and he landed his dream mountain home here with his wife, Buffy, last year. Brian and Buffy love travel and adventure, and he would be upset if I didn't mention that his fried cauliflower street tacos are the best you will ever have.
