Rick is well known for his quick wit and love of Hot Tamales.
Cody could have a conversation with a brick wall (and sell it something, too)! This out-going people-person is another USD grad who fits right in at BH Parent. When not working, he is out with his wife, Maddy, exploring the sites of the Black Hills, hunting, and golfing.
Strategic Marketing Manager
Stephen’s mind never turns off, partially due to his caffeine intake. This blessing in disguise often results in a variety of new ideas and concepts to keep his wheels turning. He’s a wilderness aficionado who immensely enjoys the solitude of the Great Outdoors regardless of season. You can regularly find him out and about with his girlfriend Denice and their two pups Murphy and Milly.

From across the pond, our Art Superhero, John leads us into the great beyond with his years of experience in publishing. By day, he works to rescue whitespace from its evil counterpart clutter.

Able to jump from one project to the next, Jenna organizes everything you see in the magazine and online into a story-telling masterpiece. From working on editorial with our production team to creating videos, she stays up on the social trends, believing that a little bit of glitter and glue can fix almost anything.
Chris will take your ideas and make them oh so wonderful. From creating beautiful ads for our partners, to bringing you the page layout of the magazine, he has an eye for design. You’re sure to find him running, hiking, or enjoying anything and everything the Black Hills has to offer.
