Based in Portland, OR

We create interactive brand experiences that resonate globally – and we do it as a team.

Most people are surprised to find out we’re a small agency, especially when they learn we’re 100% in-house. But if there’s one thing our group agrees on, it’s the importance of quality! And we believe the key to quality is in strong personal relationships.

When you work with KindTyme, you work with all of us. We are close friends who share creative ideas in-and-out of the office, and we take pride seeing all of our skills and expertise come together in the work we produce.

Our collaborative style makes sure that all of our team members have a relationship with our brands, so there’s a good chance you’ll meet us all someday!

Bridget Renee

Marketing // SEO // Project Management

Bridget was born and raised in Medford, and moved up to Portland shortly after obtaining a degree from the University of Oregon for her studies in business & film.

Her job is to step back, look at the big picture and create a cohesive strategy to integrate all of your creative marketing efforts into one unified vision.

“Every business is different, so I love learning the ins-and-outs of what each brand is doing, and what their vision is for the future. In such a new industry, many cannabis companies haven’t had enough time to develop a solid marketing strategy that they can use consistently, and their competitors usually haven’t either. My favorite thing about my job is guiding them through the process of making those decisions, and being able to take such a creative approach with them.”

Ryan Michael

Operations // Marketing // Photography

Born in Detroit, Michigan, Ryan studied creative writing & audio engineering at WMU & Kalamazoo Valley. He relocated to Portland in early 2013 from Brooklyn, New York, where he worked as a moderator for Meetup.com.

Ryan writes code, crunches numbers, & oversees internal operations to keep KindTyme flowing fast and efficiently.

“KindTyme started as a traveling, craigslist based, technical support service. I left Michigan with my dog, a laptop and $50 cash. Today, we’re a full service national marketing agency.

I’m stoked to help cannabis entrepreneurs make that transition by exploiting their individuality and creating something with truly unlimited potential.”

Scott Alan

Development // Support

Born in California & raised in Michigan, Scott relocated to Portland in 2009. He graduated from the Western Culinary Institute before realizing his true calling as a web developer.

Equipped with the mind of an engineer, and the stone focus of a Bosnian horn billed falcon, Scott is tasked with building our creative visions on the web.

“Everyone is helping everyone in the cannabis industry. Competing companies share connections & information with each other. Few industries can say that business rivals are willing to not only share knowledge, but legitimately root for the success of one another. I come to the table with a strong desire to solve problems and to bring visions to life that will ultimately have a substantial and positive impact on not only this country, but the world.”
