You’re one of a kind. It takes a special type of agency to understand your magic.
We’re that agency.
We exist for you, the forward thinkers, the industry disrupters, and the visionaries of the world.
Since our launch in 2010, we’ve worked hand-in-hand with new and heritage brands of all sizes, creating intentional awareness, driving influence, and helping them achieve social proof through a holistic communications approach. Brand building through earned media and influencer relations is at the heart of what we do, but if you ask our clients, they’ll tell you that we’re way more than publicists. And that’s what makes us different. Our efforts have not only resulted in press hits, but we’ve helped to build brand awareness, equity, and advocacy for the brands we represent.

Enneagram: Type 5, The Investigator
Word of the Year: Persevere
Michael is the co-founder of ACPR (yes, he’s married to Allyson). He is a graduate of Colorado State University’s Political Science program and holds a Bachelor of Arts with a minor in History. Michael started his career in New York City working as an Implementation Specialist for one of the largest pre-employment screening companies in the U.S. In his role, he was responsible for shepherding companies through the on-boarding of services, then acting as their dedicated liaison and project manager for the longterm. After a few years, the mountains called, and Michael and Allyson left the Big Apple in pursuit of new horizons (and opportunities). Michael landed roles in sales for two notable Park City companies prior to finding his home in merchant services. For the last 13 years, he has served small and e-commerce businesses by enabling them to accept credit cards (aka: merchant services). As the Business Development Manager for Payvana, he manages all aspects of sales development, account management, referral partner management, and client outreach and retention. While he technically co-founded ACPR with Allyson, it took years of listening to her beg and plead for his help in the day-to-day before diving in. So in addition to his full time role at Payvana, Michael moonlights as ACPR’s Chief Financial Officer. He leads strategic planning, implementation, management, and facilitation of all company finance activities. He also oversees business development and works hand-in-hand with Allyson to conceptualize and launch new products and services to market. When he’s not working with merchants or acting as Allyson’s sounding board (keeping her on budget is one of his KPIs), you can find Michael playing golf (every Sunday), riding his motorcycle, and running @maconandamos (dedicated to Michael and Allyson’s three dogs).
