I received an email back in June from the fabulous Kelly Smeltzer. I've been hanging on to it for a while until jay/day was over. And now here is Kelly to start our summer season with a bang!
Hello Steve -
i worked in the NY office from 1989-1992... i was a traffic manager working on rosann calisi's team then moved briefly into production with peter "pony" franke before heading off to the wilds of utah. i mostly worked on reebok but was part of the new business team under the creative direction of the infamous dick sittig.
even played on the C/D volleyball team where jon lee and lisa scroggins fell in love! :) dug dave koza, tommy scherma, scott blakely (and his awesome halloween parties), graham clifford, mary king, stacy osugi, lisa & jon, rosann, rodney pringle (my first friend), peter, john doepp, bruce ascher, bobby lamb, shira (i'm sure i'm forgetting tons of people)...don't get me started on the creative teams and the rest of the studio crew...loved them!!!! like steve fong who made me say, "i am spartacus, i have come to free the slaves" with my finger on my chin making a dimple before he would let me into his office.
still have my red beach bike we got some year for christmas and my cherished red bound book of jay chiat sayings.
here are a couple of current pics. i threw in a halloween one for fun (yes, i still dress up), one of me (curse those "rabbit eyes") and one of my "babies" (Madison Clover, Tucker James and Jencie Easter). don't want to make my email longer than needful but do want to tell what i'm doin' these days. when I'm not wrangling my kids, I run marketing for high-tech companies and do some freelance copywriting on the side.
thanks for creating and maintaining this site!!
