She’s an expert at balancing the nuances of creative editorial post production, and her support enables us to enhance our studio’s exceptional work,” said Billy Gabor, who manages the broader Atlanta studio.
Added Sienkwicz, “Coming to Beast in Atlanta is a great full circle career moment for me. I got my start in Atlanta and I am beyond thrilled to be back. I have worked with Deluxe creative brands across the country and am enthusiastic to be joining this amazing roster of talented people. I am excited to bring my career experience to Beast and be a resource for clients looking to tap the extraordinary vanguard coming out of this powerful market.”
