Sandstorm's new production administrator - Jason Dabrowski

Sandstorm adds creative and development support with the new hire of our Production Administrator, Jason Dabrowski. A truly organized and creative individual, his charismatic personality and natural IT talent is why we are excited to welcome him to our team. As the welcoming face of Sandstorm, Jason will be supporting the creative and development teams with production of all varieties—Photoshop, InDesign, HTML, CSS and more.

Jason, who is skilled on many levels of organization and artistry, initially came from an administrative background. Explorative in nature, Jason exemplifies our learning and sharing culture with his passion for figuring things out. Whenever asked if he can do something new, he replies, “I don’t know. Let’s see.” Always wanting to stay current with digital technology trends, Jason has taken Digital Bootcamp twice.

Not just a techy, Jason loves the arts and donates his time to Hubris Productions as both the Communications Director and an actor.

Welcome to Sandstorm, Jason!

Sandstorm Welcomes Senior Digital Strategist, Emily Kodner

A new addition to our growing team, Emily Kodner, a Kansas City native and self-proclaimed BBQ snob, has adopted Chicago, but not its BBQ. In her position as Senior Digital Strategist, she consults with clients, leading projects and working alongside our team of creatives and developers to provide solutions to complex business challenges.

Having a Bachelor's in Sociology and International Studies, a Master’s degree in International Affairs with a concentration in Conflict Resolution, and a decade shy of experience as a project manager and content strategist, Emily is exceptionally talented at getting to the bottom of an issue. She makes the complex simple and creates the plan to make it all happen. Specializing in content, Drupal site architecture and CMS strategy, Emily’s ability to develop innovative solutions is crucial when determining the needs of our clients and their target audiences.

On top of making it all happen on the job, she also herds the team out of the office once in a while for chips, guac, and margaritas.

Chicago Marketing Strategy Director - Laura Luckman Kelber

Chicago native Laura Luckman Kelber has joined the Sandstorm executive leadership team as our Strategy Director. Demonstrating our commitment to growth and providing more thought leadership to our clients, Sandstorm hired Laura to fill a new role at Sandstorm—a role that is solely focused on solving clients’ marketing problems by bridging the gap between what is and what could be.

After many years of working for large agencies, Laura wanted more time to practice her craft. With both a B.S. in Political Science and an MBA in Marketing from the University of Illinois, and 20 years of marketing experience, Laura borrows from a variety of intellectual constructs to solve clients’ problems. Combining seemingly disparate ideas to solve a problem, Laura unearths unexpected insights to help clients’ fuel their success. Having led digital strategies for top brands such as Sprint, Victoria’s Secret and State Farm in her previous positions, Laura has a variety of vertical experience. Sandstorm provides Laura with the perfect environment to foster thoughtful creativity and apply it to our clients’ businesses.

A unique individual from the (sometimes pink, sometimes purple) tips of her hair to her warm smile, Laura’s charismatic personality is magnetic. A passionate vegetarian, Laura has recently delved into the macro and micro impacts of nutrition on society. As her favorite author, Dorothy Parker, would say, “The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.”
