With five years of agency account management experience under his belt, our new Project Manager Stephen Back brings a hefty amount of knowledge, drive, and creativity to the Bonfire Effect team, not to mention an uncanny knack for awesome client service. Get acquainted with this sports-loving, Mule-drinking, mandolin-playing Space Jam enthusiast. We think we'll keep him around. 

Wedding photo book – Photographic evidence of the best day of my life. My wife Megan is my true love, best friend, and my everything. I can’t imagine life without her by my side.  

Copper mug – Easily one of my favorite alcoholic drinks. You can’t beat an ice-cold Moscow mule in a copper mug on a hot summer day. Or any day for that matter… Cheers!

Sunglasses – An accessory you can’t live without while exploring the great outdoors. PRO TIP: Stop wasting money on expensive sunglasses that you’ll eventually break or lose and buy these awesome $15 sunglasses at Target.

Chick-fil-A waffle fries – God’s gift to mankind and my favorite fast food restaurant. Also, one of my first jobs was working the drive-thru at Chick-fil-A. We would get over 150 cars an hour during lunch rush hour. That job was intense!

#5 – Most families have a crest or heirloom; my family has a number – one I wore on my jersey in every sport I played growing up. Family is forever and one of life’s greatest blessings. I wouldn’t change mine for the world.    

Basketball – Sports are life. I grew up playing basketball and soccer and learned a lot of life lessons along the way. Today, you’ll find me mostly playing basketball at my local gym or during lunch to feed my competitive itch.  

Steph Curry jersey – The passing, ball handling, and shot accuracy of this guy makes him a pleasure to watch. Three championships in four years arguably puts him up there with the best.

Colorado State University sticker – Go Rams! Shout out to my alma matter and where 90% of my family members attended college. A lot of great memories and friendships that came out of it. 

Space Jam DVD – The greatest movie of all time and inspiration for my Space Jam socks and groomsquad shirts at my wedding. As a child, I would pretend I could fly by running around the house wearing a cape listing to, I Believe I Can Fly by R. Kelly. Twenty-seven years later and nothing has changed…

Mandolin – A beautiful instrument that I've challenged myself to learn. Music is a big part of my life and I am hoping that one day I can be half as good as this guy.
