Dan Madsen

Chief Creative Officer

As an all-terrain father of four and head of Creative, Dan's never lost his curiosity for learning and discovery, which has been his primary compass in life. Particularly, when he set his neighbor's fence and trees ablaze—probably should've used a different compass that day.

Sarah Spaziano

Senior Art Director

When I'm not behind the retina display, you might find me at a hockey game, enjoying a Stephen King novel, or organizing my vinyl collection.

Tommy McConnell

Sr Writer

An Atlanta native turned Bostonian, Tommy is wicked happy to meet y’all. He writes, drums, occasionally blinks and yells at the TV on Saturdays to cheer on his UGA Dawgs. Tommy doesn’t particularly like writing about himself in the third person but will do so if it makes him sound more professional.

Colby Greco

Colby’s 20+ year career includes a myriad of agency roles and a history of entrepreneurial efforts with tech companies and online publishing. In his spare time, he can be found fly fishing the rivers, ponds, and lakes of the Northeast or canoeing through the heart of the Amazon.

Tyavanna Skane

Director, HR + Finance

As our HR + Finance Director, “T” literally and figuratively holds the keys to everything inside The Grist. When she’s not recruiting, onboarding, or handling payroll, this avid bullet journalist loves adding stamps to her passport and cheering on the Celtics and Patriots.

Gregg Tobin

Account Director

A Western Mass native, Gregg joined The Grist after 9 years as an Account Director at a digital agency focused on music & live events. When he's not running an obstacle race or at a country music concert, Gregg can be found at home re-reading the Game of Thrones books beneath a Tom Brady poster.
