Stuart Getty is a writer and brand strategist with 15 years’ experience leading teams and storytelling. With a love for strategic communication and branding, Stuart is also a filmmaker (TEDx, Portland Film Festival and Oregon Room at Sundance) and leads with an emphasis on authentic storytelling and emotional connection. Their best work is centered in the heart; but also in the laugh. Stuart loves play, and believes freedom and imagination are the best fuels for the most innovative design and ideation.

Stuart is also driven by the concept of access, and crafting work that everyone in the room can understand. Belonging, inclusion, and equity are at the heart of their design and leadership philosophy. They graduated with Honors from the Journalism school at the University of Missouri, and in their free time, love to swim in big cold open waters. Yes, it is cold and terrifying. But that’s exactly why they do it.
