Chief Operating Officer
Think of a 1969 convertible metallic silver 350 V8 Bitchin’ Camaro flying down the highway passing everything in its path. It’s tough. It’s fun. It gets the job done and looks good while doing it. (Cue the The Dead Milkmen.) Don’t worry, Kim still has her classy Triumph Spitfire days too.
Man Made’s go-to storyteller, Pam is all about amplifying, inspiring and educating everyone on the undeniable influence of sound in our lives.
EVP, Global Business Development and Partnerships
JT chose the path less travelled on his way to New York. Born in New Zealand, a London native, he grew up in a media family who raised him on television, radio and rock ’n roll.
In his career with Viacom, the BBC and AMC, JT transformed brands and businesses in the US, UK, Europe & Africa. He’s known for harnessing the power of creators, brands and audiences and turning big ideas into reality.
Willing to ask 100 questions until the right inspiration and insight is found. Danni turns assignments inside out, does the process backwards, throws it all out, starts over again and won’t rest until we’re satisfied. If the creative process isn’t a bit terrifying, you might be doing it wrong.
VP, Director of Business Development + Partnerships

VP, Managing Director, West Coast
Justine’s love of travel, adventure and connecting people brought her to the west coast. After 5 years with MMM in New York, she now leads the growth of our west coast studio, bridging entertainment, innovation, brand and experience. Outside of the studio, you’ll find her challenging herself on the hiking trails or enduring endless hot yoga classes.
VP, Director of Client Services
Whether in the studio or at a festival, Alex’s primary objective is team morale. His knack for keeping the show going while lifting everyone up around him makes him the de facto mascot of the office.
Senior Producer + Director of Sonic Design
You’re as likely to find Brian discussing future technologies in the studio as you are to find him sitting in silence in front of a campfire in the desert. Characterized by passion and precision, Brian designs elegant systems of sounds for platforms, products and experiences, seeking clarity and cohesion in all that he does.
VP, Business Operations
