Short History of Me


” I have worked with Brian on and off for probably close to 10 years now.  I have worked with Brian on and off for probably close to 10 years now. Whenever we have had the chance to work together its been very productive and enjoyable. Brian has great insight … and always brings a good attitude with him. I look forward to working with Brian when the chances arise. “

” I feel very fortunate and blessed to have met Brian as a rep many years ago. It is refreshing to have a rep that will shoot straight with you, and work with you to find out what products will perform in your store(not just sell you the product of the month). I look at Brian more as a friend than a rep now. “

In my 10 years of professional work experience, some people stand out for their great qualities and Brian O’Kelly is one of those managers. While working for him, Brian was well known for his work ethic, positive attitude, teamwork mentality, leadership and diligence.

I’m originally from the Midwest, I grew up hiking and fishing in the forests and lakes of Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan, to name a few.

In high school my family moved west and never looked back. I spent High School in California and then moved to Washington State.

Currently I reside north of Seattle in Wine country with my wife Barbara and our daughter. We have 4 children and several grandchildren.

My interest in advertising and the visual arts began in earnest in the 7th grade. I was a disruptive kid so they sent me to an “alternative” school for “gifted” kids who got “bored”. The cool thing was that they had a “printshop” elective class. In the classroom they had an old handset printing press.

This is the kind of press they had at the school. I fell in love with putting ink on paper.
