Bryan, Jeff and MaryJo are the new kids on the block here at TKA, collectively bringing in over 40+ years of experience with them. Welcome to the family!

Bryan Farkas  Senior Art Director


Throughout his career as a three-sport high school athlete, VCU baseball star and MLB draftee, Bryan was always obsessed with one thing — #winning. (And we’re not talking the Charlie Sheen kind, either.) Today, he’s still swinging for the fences with award-winning concepts and designs that move our clients’ brands forward. With over a decade of agency experience, his work has been recognized in multiple advertising and design shows, including the Richmond Show, Telly Awards and National Healthcare Advertising Awards.

Jeff Erickson
– Account Director


Jeff’s background reads like a veritable “who’s who” of the marketing industry. With 10 years on the agency-side (Eisner, Saatchi & Saatchi) and another 8 on the client-side (Circuit City, Capital One), he honed his skills on brands as diverse as Tylenol, Absolut Vodka, Sprite and Circuit City. As account director, he oversees planning and management for all agency clients.

MaryJo Steinmetz
Senior Media Strategist


With 14 years of industry experience, MaryJo is our senior media strategist. Whether managing a multimillion dollar media budget for a large auto group or creating workable strategies for small businesses, she brings the same insight and attention to detail to all of her media plans.
