Sean joined O2 Marketing in 2012, looking to build a long career in the promotional marketing world. Previously, he worked on various direct sales campaigns for Telecom and Office Supply companies. He began his sales career in middle school by selling his mom's sandwiches to other students and pocketing the profits. He is committed to bringing creative ideas and effective programs for his customers.
A Berkeley native, Sean enjoys soccer, basketball, music and protesting parking tickets. He can still make a mean latte from his Barista days where his specialty was creating consistent quality every day. His favorite yoga pose is the Child's Pose and he is a die hard 49ers fan.
Sean is glad to be an O2 team member and can’t believe that he gets to make a living by talking to people and selling swag. He has great energy and persistence which endears him to his customers.

Kevin attended the Rhode Island School of design, graduating with a BFA in Illustration. He lived In Manhattan for three years, literally a starving artist. Moving on to Florida, he worked for BIC Pen for three years. He was blissfully unaware that he would return to the Promotional Marketing industry 15 years later.
Since then he has had many Graphic Design positions, mostly in the Newspaper Industry as a production artist. In his coveted free time, he likes print making and metal sculpture.
When he's not at work most of his time is spent with his 10 year old son Gavin whose schedule is pretty busy with Cub Scouts, basketball and school events and activities. Kevin's wife Virginia works in San Francisco for Time Warner as a Sales Manager, for Entertainment Weekly magazine.
Kevin enjoys working at O2 Marketing + Design since they gave him a brand new MAC and an office with windows AND feed him lots of food, another very important aspect to keeping the artist happy.

After 13 years of working for other companies, Meg O'Dea started O2 Marketing + Design with 5 other partners in 2000. Her degree in Architecture from UC Berkeley comes in handy when helping a client design their projects.

She excels at working on projects from the early design stages to product fulfillment. Her clients depend on her experience and reliability.
She enjoys hanging out with her family, daughter Casey, son Connor and husband Patrick.
