For many Millennials, making the leap from the always popular church 5K to a full-fledged marathon has become a bucket list item before turning 30. Blistered feet and black toenails are a new badge of honor.

Tim Marren
Senior Copywriter

What are you passionate about outside of SKM Group?
Family, faith and friends. My wife, our daughter and even our four-legged daughter, “Lucy the Lab”—everything revolves around them. Being a good husband and father is my goal every day. Our family is also very devoted to our parish. And we love just hanging out with friends.

What made you want to work in the agency business?
Since I went to school for journalism, I always had a passion for telling a story through great writing. But after seven years in the newspaper business, I wanted a different outlet for my writing. The industry, in print form at least, is struggling. I thought advertising copywriting would be a nice change. It’s been that and so much more. Not only do I get to “tell stories”—I’m helping to sell a product or stimulate a reaction from the consumer. And like the news business, every day is unpredictable.

Fun fact:
I’m an “Irish twin”—my brother and I are 11 months apart in age and are the same age for 2 weeks each year. During those two weeks, as kids, we’d love to tell other kids we’re the same age—but not twins. Their confusion was the best.

Greg Bauch
Copywriter

What are your hobbies?
I write books. I enjoy my birdfeeder, hiking and I moonlight as a Stand-up Comic in Buffalo. I also like putting a blanket on top of my dog and watching him blindly walk around the living room.

What made you want to work in the agency business?
I love finding the perfect word for any situation and working with other creative people.

What is something that most people don’t know about you? (Hidden talent, secrets, fun facts)
I’ve eaten over 40,000 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in my life. My last name is the German word for ‘stomach’. I can name four state capitals. And, I’d rather be lowered by a rope into an active volcano than be trapped in a porta potty with a bee.

What are your hobbies?
I like to be outdoors, so I enjoy running and playing sports. I also love to bake, travel and try different things that range from trying new foods to skydiving.

My family and friends are very important to me. When I travel, I love to learn about the people and culture of the places that I visit. I feel that an appreciation for other cultures is important to learn and grow as a person. I would also be very passionate about my dog (if I had one – I really really want one).
 
What is something that most people don’t know about you? (Hidden talent, secrets, fun facts)
While living in NYC I had a short stint working on photo shoots and TV shows as an assistant stylist, and my friends call me shambles due to my clumsy (yet graceful) nature.
