More about Anthony
He’s organized, he’s driven, and he knows his stuff. As Click Mentality’s Director of Digital Marketing, Anthony brings clarity to concepts that can sometimes be a bit fuzzy for the uninitiated. From PPC to lead generation to sales funnels, Anthony has mastered all the ways to connect a company’s products and services to the intended audiences. He possesses a broad understanding of all channels and how they work together. The term may suffer from over-use, but Anthony’s a whiz at “moving the needle.”
Originally from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, Anthony visited a friend in Boulder and never really went back. He attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, earning a degree in Communications. He fell in love with Colorado and its natural beauty; today, he continues to enjoy outdoorsy activities like camping in the mountains, biking, motocross, and four-wheeling. He and his wife Amanda share their home with a dog and a cat (the cat, for the record, is not outdoorsy).
After college, Anthony dove into the world of digital marketing and started to learn all of the nuances of the field that can’t be learned in college. He started his own agency, building it into a successful business before moving on to new challenges.
Anthony describes himself as easygoing, optimistic, flexible, and versatile. His coworkers would probably add the term “energetic” to the mix. Anthony is highly motivated to drive success for Click Mentality’s client-partners. He knows that collaboration and teamwork are keys to success - no A/B testing is needed in order to confirm!
Random fact: Anthony once ate a one-pound hamburger at a restaurant. His reward? His photo on the wall of fame.
More about Tony
He’s fit, he’s an accomplished photographer, and he knows fancy words like al dente, compote, and canapé. But wait, there’s more! Tony is also an SEO expert, which is an in-demand skill in today’s data-driven world. He’s a knowledgeable and energetic addition to the Click Mentality team and does a great job of explaining SEO strategies in a way that non-experts can understand. Tony prides himself on being able to communicate with different types of people in a team environment.
He started his education in microbiology, took a break, and later attended the Art Institute of Colorado, which gave him an opportunity to explore his love of art, painting, and graphic design. Tony also had a keen interest in technology and website development. As the SEO field began to form, Tony jumped right in, learning all the ins and outs of search engines and how to drive targeted traffic in all the right directions.
Tony has two adult children, a son and a daughter. When asked about his proudest accomplishment, his children come first. He’s also proud of participating in a cycling fundraiser that found him crossing the entire state in two days. In addition to cycling, Tony also enjoys weightlifting (he used to compete in CrossFit), hiking, and longboarding. Now, back to those fancy words: Tony is a gourmet cook and enjoys the challenge of mastering new dishes. Photography is one of his other great passions. He found a niche in sports and fitness photography, even booking some commercial clients.
Random fact: While most people would agree that how you pronounce the word “caramel” depends largely on regional differences, Tony would like you to know that there is only one pronunciation: care-ah-mel. There will be no further debate.
More about Steve
He’s certified, he’s data-driven, and he can cook! Meet Steve, a skilled Paid Media Strategist with charisma to spare.
Steve is a Denver native; he’s lived in Colorado all his life except for a one-year stint living in Australia. He lived in a big city (Sydney) and hence does not have any exciting stories about Australian wildlife (we definitely asked). After high school, he earned a Liberal Arts degree (with a minor in History as well as a minor in Marketing) from Colorado State University. Steve’s career path began in hospitality, a decade-long journey that gave him invaluable skills in working with many different types of people.
In time, Steve made the leap from hospitality to digital marketing. The more he learned about the psychology of how a user finds products/services and whether or not that interaction results in a sale/conversion, the more fascinated he became. Steve knew he wanted to get inside the head of that user and use data to make predictions and informed recommendations. He found that he had a natural skill in this arena and loves finding new ways to use technology and data to drive results.
Since coming to the dark - er, data - side, he's built a solid background in digital marketing, holding leadership positions along the way. In addition to PPC, Steve also has a solid understanding of SEO, Social Media, and SEM principles. He holds multiple Google certifications: Google Search, Google Analytics, and Google Measurements.
Steve and his girlfriend share their home with a cat and a dog. He enjoys cooking, snowboarding, and watching football. His years in the restaurant industry taught him priceless kitchen skills. He describes himself as being even-keeled, pragmatic, self-motived, and chock full of leadership skills. Steve prides himself on always leaving a job well done.
Random fact: Steve was once a nationally-ranked distance runner. Nope, no one was chasing him!
More about Haakon
Meet Haakon, an adrenaline junkie with a passion for SEO, fitness, and the great outdoors. His name, in case you wondered, is Norwegian-derived and is pronounced like “Hawken,” though he’s no doubt heard every possible variation by now.
Haakon lived in several states before settling in Colorado. He has lived in Florida and Wyoming. In fact, Haakon met his girlfriend Ellie while skiing in Jackson Hole. He has worked as a digital marketing professional and as a personal trainer. He developed and runs a fitness-focused website, which gives him an opportunity to keep his content and SEO skills sharp.

When he’s not harnessing the power of data to help our clients reach their business goals, Haakon enjoys crushing his workouts at the gym, skiing, and mountain biking. He’ll hike the Rockies if he must but prefers faster-paced endeavors that drive his heart rate up. Haakon describes himself as being energetic and positive in nature. He and Ellie share a Shepherd mix named Otis. Word has it that Otis tries their patience and has #noregrets while doing so.
Random fact: Haakon once did some coaching/training with Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue.

More about Claudia

She admits to having an outrageous number of browser tabs open at any given time.
Originally from Northern Virginia, Claudia has resided in Green Bay, Wisconsin for over 25 years.

More about Krizzia
Krizzia joined our team in 2017. When it comes to handling large volumes of data, nothing scares Krizzia. Her “can-do” attitude makes her a valued member of our team.

She enjoys working for Click Mentality because of the company’s culture of bringing people up and helping them to grow.
Krizzia studied Computer Science in school and strives to continue growing and learning. In addition to handling data-related tasks, she uses Umbraco to build content pages for our client-partners. She also handles photo editing and email cataloging.

More about David
David serves as Managing Member for Click Mentality. He was talking about Digital Marketing before most of the world knew what it was.
Although we sometimes tease David about our theory that he only sleeps about 45 minutes a night, he does get a lot done in a day. He also leverages one of his most critical skills for the leader of a digital marketing agency: bringing other people up. Several of our team members started off in other fields. David identifies the best and brightest in a variety of fields (like bartending and construction!) and recognizes in them a solid work ethic and capacity to learn and grow.
David is the prototypical “small-town boy” who later moved to the Big City. He has lived in Denver for several years and enjoys the typical outdoor pursuits (like skiing) that Colorado’s favorable weather allows. David is a licensed pilot and takes to the skis whenever he gets the chance. He is the proud father of three children. We’re betting that at least one of the three starts a company before the age of 12.
More about Ken
What were you doing when you were 8? Ken Dimmer was writing his first program. When he was about a decade older, Ken worked on his first website in 2001, and if memory serves, he received a tattoo in exchange. Ken has come a long way since then. His official title is Operations Director, but he also delves into development and project management. Ken is one of our SEO experts as well.
Ken is a certified Umbraco Master, and has passed every test that Umbraco offers (with flying colors, of course). Go ahead, ask him anything. He’s also pretty good at explaining technical concepts in layman’s terms.
Like several Click Mentality team members, Ken grew up in Wisconsin but felt Denver’s sunnier weather calling his name. He made the move in 2015. Like many Colorado residents, Ken is fairly outdoorsy and enjoys hiking, camping, fishing, disc golf, and something called “snowblading,” which he swears is a legitimate sport.
Ken has two children, a boy and a girl.
