Thiago Aragao, Unrivald Digital Digital Marketer

Thiago Aragao

Digital Marketer

Thiago was born and raised in Recife, a beach-filled South American paradise located in the northeast part of Brazil. Thiago also calls his hometown “Rain-cife” or “Hell-cife” owing to its tropical monsoon climate. He’s adapted well to his transplanted Calgary home, including going winter camping. No one told him that few Canadians enjoy that kind of thing. Oh well.

Thiago has built his career around things he enjoys doing.

He studied Business Administration and Marketing at University in his home country and also in Spain. Beyond his obvious passion for design, Thiago is also experienced in project management and managed his own marketing and advertising agency, where he could work for many types of businesses.

Very into sports, Thiago has played for a professional soccer team and is a former racing driver – those amazing times where he had so much free time! His portfolio shows that influence, but he keeps broadening his work experience now that he is living in Alberta. Thiago uses his digital marketing, graphic design and UX/UI design experience to help our clients achieve their business and marketing goals.

Gary Pitcher

Web Developer

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.

Adrian Proctor

Web Developer

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 Aragao

Digital Marketer

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 Matheson

Account Manager

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 Bhimani

Director

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.

Marie Davis

Director

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.

Blair Shunk

Founder

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.
