Patrick Godfrey

Managing Partner, President

Patrick will argue with anyone, about anything, at any time. Especially if the subject matter is strategy, creative, baseball, music, wine, coffee, food, cars or audio equipment.


Patrick founded the agency nearly 13 years ago and still will not leave, even when asked politely.

He began his advertising career more than two decades ago at Ogilvy & Mather working on Microsoft. He has since worked at agencies in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco, including Anderson & Lembke, McCann Erickson, Lowe & Partners and Goldberg Moser O’Neill. His brand experience includes IBM, Sun Microsystems, Cisco, Intel, Dolby, Splunk and a host of others.

Patrick has developed a reputation among his clients and peers as a clear-headed thinker who will say just about anything. He reads a great deal and has a fear of not speaking in public.

He and his wife Lauren have called San Francisco home for more than 20 years. They dote on their psychotic canines, Toonces and Wooderson, at their home in Buena Vista Park.
