Get to know the Unrivald heroes
Marie is a recovering English major with a secret nerdly fascination for measurement and analytics. Shh… don’t tell.
Over the course of her career, Marie has taught both technical and non-technical topics to college students (don’t get her started on network security!), acted as a database admin and a technical writer for an American Fortune 100 company, crafted online strategies for non-profits and tech startups, and found her professional calling in the energy sector, where she managed all things digital as part of communication teams.
She is a true all-around digital professional, able to craft effective marketing messages, develop targeted online advertising, boost a website’s SEO, execute email campaigns, create websites and online stores, and translate technical language into terms non-technical people can understand. Tragically, she cannot design anything more complex than a table, but she does create amazingly lifelike stick people.
Born and raised in the extreme southeastern corner of Alberta (shoutout to Etzikom, home of the National Historic Windpower Museum!), Marie was raised on a farm and understands what hard work and entrepreneurship means at a cellular level.

Gary has forgotten more about technology than most of us will ever know. He’s worked in dozens of industries in a wide variety of roles and solves difficult problems recreationally. By the time you’ve formulated your question, Gary already has an answer, which would be annoying except he’s so darned nice about it.
When you put Adrian behind a keyboard, magic happens. On stage, that means he’s making music. At work, he’s bringing website designs to life. Adrian is probably the quietest member of the Unrivald Digital team, but when he speaks, we all listen because we know he’s got something important to say.
Thiago is all about visual and aesthetic. He loves to design with purpose and believes that every piece of design has to have a shape, a meaning, and a function. His claim to fame on the team is making everything look better than expected. He’s humble but takes pride in knocking every project out of the park.
Taylor is our resident extravert. She’s an ace relationship builder, and a clever ad writer, which means she becomes a trustworthy partner to our team and our clients alike. She believes that relationships and a strong focus on the desired outcomes makes for more effective marketing with more meaningful results.
Shaheen is the guy you want in your corner when you’ve got a complex problem to solve in the next 15 minutes. He’s part MacGyver, part Tony Stark and part while still being the nicest guy in the room, hands down. His soft-spoken, down-to-earth vibe and ability to deliver makes him a client favourite.
Working in an agency setting is the perfect fit for Marie for whom a variety of intellectual challenges is what gets her out of bed in the morning (though admittedly, not really early). Working solo on a project, collaboratively with a client or managing a team, Marie thrives on high performance and bad jokes.
Whether leading a meeting, riding his motorcycle, or running in the Banff Jasper Relay (for which he was Race Director for many years), Blair connects with the world around him. He inspires his team to work hard while never forgetting the value of the relationships he builds with clients.
