WHO IS GLM MEDIA?
PRESIDENT

Dave Scott

Dave puts his knowledge, creativity and other talents to use to provide quality programming and expert consultation on the integration of new media and technology. Dave attended West Bloomfield High School and Grand Valley State University. Prior to the formation of GLM Media and Motown Digital, Dave was the Director of Digital Technology at CBS Radio/Detroit, Director of Web Hosting Services for Lansing Michigan based Voyager Internet, and co-founder of Freeway Inc, a Northern Michigan based Internet access and web development company. Dave first registered domains for a number of Michigan’s top well known brands. Dave started his career in radio broadcasting entertaining listeners on Detroit radio stations WCSX, WLLZ, WMJC, WDRQ, and others. In 2001 he founded the Michigan Talk Radio Network which is now operated by WJR’s parent company Citadel Broadcasting. He lives in Farmington Hills Michigan and loves flying. When not in the studio, he can generally be found at one of the local airports engaged in aviation activities or better yet thousands of feet above Michigan enjoying the incredible beauty and splendor of the great lakes state.

DIRECTOR OF CREATIVE SERVICES

Lisa Powers, CAE, CTA

Service is in my blood. And it shows in my resume; from being a “server” at restaurants from the age of 14 to 19, to serving association members for 10 years at the Michigan Restaurant and Lodging Association and the Michigan Association of School Boards, to serving clients at a leading web and application development firm for the last three years, I’m so excited to be serving YOU at GLM Media. In addition, I love serving my community through my role as the Kiwanis Club of Grand Ledge Area’s Board President, as well as serving others through my church. My life wouldn’t be complete without my husband and our two beautiful boys. (They’re 13 and 5 – they keep me young, or make me crazy, depending on the day.) I’ve been known to be quite the “foodie” and enjoy any and all cuisine I come across. Born and raised in Michigan, I’m a lover of all things “Michigan made”. From our amazing products (pizza, coffee and wine anyone?), to our fabulous venues, restaurants, destinations, and beautiful beaches, Michigan is the place to be. Connect with me anytime; I so look forward to getting to know you if I don’t happen to already.

SENIOR CLIENT MANAGER

Stacy Yerby, CGMP

Serial optimist, problem solver and can-doer. If you ask my friends and family, they would tell you that I’m always a little ‘extra’ and everything I do has to have its own ‘Stacy’ flare. I have never once followed a recipe as it is written. I consider myself an expert in trips to Target, Venti Triple Cinnamon Dolce Latte’s, toddler speak and first grader hip hop moves. When I am not slinging virtual solutions at GLM you can usually find me hanging with my family – Husband Tyler, two kids Eleanor and Jack (The #Yerbkins) and our rescue pup, Yeti.

NETWORK ENGINEER

Brian Gabrick

Nerd, geek, or whatever, I’m always looking to sharpen my mad scientist skills! I live quietly with my wife of 8 years Kim, stepson Dalton and super dog Tucker. I have 2 adult children and one precious granddaughter. I love spaceflight, reading, music, good backups and I hate snow shovels, hard drive failure, and staring into the abyss.

  • The Beatles, Steely Dan, Cat Stevens, Alan Parsons Project, Led Zeppelin.

  • SpaceX and Spaceflight.

  • Born in Grand Rapids, MI.

LEAD SOFTWARE ENGINEER

Steve Sutton

I served in the U.S. Calvary during Desert Storm / Desert Shield. I’m a 5th Dan in Hap Ki Do. I enjoy hiking a lot around Petoskey. When I’m not busy learning more about programming I’ll like to watch crime documentaries and shows like “Homicide Hunter” and dabbling in Amateur Radio. The best things in life though have to be my wife, three children, three dogs and one cat.

SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION SPECIALIST

Anthony Dwyer

Just a typical family man. Love spending time with my wife of 17 years while we raise our 3 cool boys …. which involves a lot of driving to different after-school activities. I graduated from Adrian College with a double major in Philosophy and Religious Studies but have been working in Search Engine Optimization for Gaslight Media since its inception. Things I enjoy include sports (mostly as a spectator these days), music and cultural activities, and good food.

  • Born in Bo, Sierra Leon & grew up in East Lansing, MI.

  • MSU Spartans

  • Don’t sweat the petty things and don’t pet the sweaty things.

FULL STACK ENGINEER

Anthony Talarico

A self-proclaimed rockstar. I’m definitely on a list somewhere for the number times I’ve watched the Ted Bundy documentary. Aspiring cat condo carpenter. I spend most of my time exploring new tech, watching MMA fights, finding new music, giving my cats piggyback rides and gracing my girlfriend with humor of the utmost maturity.

My focus at Gaslight Media primarily involves building and maintaining plugins using PHP, javascript and popular tools like React and Redux.

WEB DEVELOPER

Laury Garcia van Rooijen

Resident of bustling Wolverine, MI, Laury was born in the Netherlands, and while his innate predisposition for creating polders and dikes may be ill-suited to the area, he contentedly enjoys the geeky side of life; from astronomy, to physics, to robotics, to game development, to fascination with cosmic horror, the darker pockets of the psyche, and the folly and potential of our kind and its works.

Laury engages mad skills as a front-end developer, incorporating solid CSS structure within GLM theme creations and is also responsible for tackling complex e-commerce website requests from clients that like to ‘think outside the box’.

  • Glitch Hop, Viking Metal, Electro House, Psychedelic Rock

  • Ori, Civilization, The Witcher, Final Fantasy

  • Drawing, game development, reading, writing, D&D

WEB DEVELOPER

Ian Weller

I’m a self published poet, writer, trading card/board gamer, volunteer, and role model. I have a form of Autism called Asperger’s Syndrome, which makes me a bit weird and awkward at times. Also because I’m on the Spectrum I strive to be a positive role model for the younger people on the spectrum and give parents hope that their children can be far more than what some experts say the can only be. 

The bulk of what I do at Gaslight Media is tests sites for issues before and after they are on display for the world to see and do miscellaneous web tasks.

  • Game Realm of Petoskey, MI

  • “God Only Knows” by for King and Country

  • Writing

GRAPHIC DESIGNER

Alie Culver

I have always been completely right-brained, with a love for all things creative. I’m always the designated photographer for family events, I know way too many broadway songs, and I go thrift shopping at least once a week. My biggest flex is hiking to the very edge of Angel’s Landing.

Since being the editor of my yearbook in 2014, I have had a passion for creating cohesive, creative, and detail-oriented brands. At GLM I aid in website mock-ups, marketing materials, logo design, and branding. I love working with clients tirelessly to reach whatever goal they have in mind!
