Kenny Eliason

Kenny Eliason

CTO / Evangelist / Founder

Having grown up the son of a marketer, the skills of the trade are pumping through his blood. When you couple that with his programming and computer knowledge, you get an explosive combination. Kenny has been an avid digital marketer for over 6 years now, often being the first to recognize the hottest trends coming to the market.

In his free time, Kenny loves downhill mountain biking. He calls it his “old man sport” since BMX was what he did as a teenager and it’s not quite as easy to ride those little bikes anymore. Kenny is also a huge technology enthusiast, specifically when it comes to Apple products – did someone say, fanboy? Those close to him are often asking for help solving tech-related problems which often results with them saying, “man, you can fix anything!”

Blake Wise

Regional Manager

Right out of college, Blake Wise started consulting for small businesses that needed a little help with their marketing. From there, he embraced his love of books – the Wheel of Time series is a favorite – and launched an Amazon-based used book company. When he and his partner decided it was time to sell their business, they proudly donated stacks of books to local schools. Now, Blake is our Regional Manager serving clients in and around Utah and Salt Lake Counties. When he’s not lending his marketing skills to NeONBRAND clients, he’s probably watching sports, playing Zelda (he’s a 3-time Ocarina of Time champion) or reading a great book.

Kitty Lusby

Kitty Lusby

Content Creator & SEO Specialist

Kitty discovered her talent and passion in middle school, when she began an illicit business selling “romantic” short stories to her preteen classmates. Eventually, the school board expressed its extreme disapproval, so she moved on to more academic writing pursuits; she did older students’ essay assignments for money. As an adult, Kitty has found that content marketing and copywriting are perfect for legitimately exercising those writing skills. In early 2014, she moved to the Las Vegas area on a whim after enjoying a taco during a cross-country road trip, and fell passionately in love with the city, its downtown culture, and its abundance of 24 hour taco restaurants.

Yoany Vaillant

Web and Application Developer

With more than 15 years of programming and application development experience, Yoany is a Cuban computer science pioneer. He discovered coding at just 12 years old, and as technology has evolved, he’s embraced new languages, new skills, and new experiences. As a college professor, Yoany taught programming and development to advanced students in Camagüey, Cuba, including preparing his classes to become computer teachers themselves. The NeON Team enjoys his sense of humor, his insights, and his music that is occasionally played too loud.

Morgan Miller

Social Media Manager

Morgan, a cancer, studied journalism at BYU where she took a job doing social media and copywriting while still a student. She abandoned her dreams of becoming the next Megyn Kelly after discovering the wonderful world of marketing, even though she wanted to be a reporter ever since her 5th grade teacher said she should be on the news.

From Idaho to Utah to Las Vegas, we at NeONBRAND are so glad that Morgan made her way to our city to take the position of Social Media Manager. Her wit, charm, and words enhance our social pages and delight our clients.

Morgan stays fit and enjoys hiking, even though Las Vegan bugs are a little extra scary. She loves Mad Men (fittingly) and documentaries, and loves elegant clothing, furniture, and perhaps people. She’s the second twin to join the NeON team – Jacey is the other – and her siblings are her best friends.

The variety and creativity of social media keeps Morgan interested in her work. She’s always liked short form writing, so it’s a good fit. The New Yorker and Morgan are in a serious, yet tumultuous relationship, but Morgan still think’s she’s a beautiful combination of art, writing, culture, and news.
