Over the years, he’s had the pleasure of working for a number of high-profile companies, including Wyeth-Ayerst, AMF Bowling, Genworth Financial, Afton Chemical, LandAmerica, and MeadWestvaco/MWV, among others.  Mike graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University, where he has also served as a member of the adjunct faculty.

David LivesayCALVIN WEST • COPY
For decades, Calvin’s effervescent copy provided fast relief for clients ranging from political candidates, travel attractions and software consultants, to financial and pharmaceutical powerhouses.  Calvin was a great writer and business partner and a strong influence on the culture of our agency.  Sadly, Calvin passed away in 2008. He is sorely missed, but will always be a part of the spirit of our company.
