Who We Are

A lot of people ask us what Frozen Fire means. Sure, it may seem like a contradiction – an oxymoron, even. But we know it’s a keen metaphor for what we’re all about.

When clients reach out to us, their business may be doing ok, but their online presence has been neglected. It hasn’t kept pace with their business development or the competitive landscape. It has become frozen, static, void of color and flair. Most importantly, it no longer engages clients or prospects the way it should.

Since 2007, Frozen Fire has had one mission – to reignite your online presence, set it on fire and stoke the flames that drive prospects to your site and deliver highly qualified revenue.

ALL SPARK, NO SINGE.

That’s our mantra at Frozen Fire. We work in a friendly and collaborative manner with you and your team. Above everything, we value our relationships with the people who trust us to solve the business problems that keep them awake at night or away from their families. You won’t encounter big egos or a lot of marketing speak with us – just common sense and down-to-earth strategies designed to fit your business’ needs – along with honest, hard work to make them truly effective.

THE FACES OF FROZEN FIRE

  • BRAD DAVIS

    Chief Executive Officer

    BRAD DAVIS

    Chief Executive Officer

    There are brand champions and business advocates—and then there’s Brad Davis. You may call it a fluke, serendipity even, but we don’t think it’s a mistake that Brad’s name is just one letter shy (“n”) of making him not only the brand champion of all time, but your business advocate. His interest in your success is genuine. Why? Because he understands the tough challenges that face every business owner—he’s lived through them. “I’m not some guy who’s got a marketing degree and just talks,” Brad says. “I’m a business owner who’s felt the exact same pain points, had the same worries, solved the same problems. I’m one of them.” Brad began his career with a 13-year stint at United Parcel Service when he was still in college. He made the most of his time there, eagerly learning about every aspect of the business as he moved up through the ranks of the company. But Brad is an entrepreneur at heart, so he left UPS to start his own courier service. With tenacity and common-sense business acumen, Brad was the catalyst for 10 consecutive years of quarter-over-quarter growth. Since then he has successfully built four other companies—business-to-business service models in four different, highly competitive industries, including Frozen Fire. With each, Brad has focused on differentiating his businesses from the competitors and staying ahead of the curve on changes in the marketplace. With Frozen Fire, he loves helping other business owners optimize their success.

Mindi has worked alongside Brad ever since. “We are a good team,” she admits. “My strengths complement Brad’s.” Over the years, Mindi has amassed a wealth of knowledge that has made her Frozen Fire’s go-to person—you know, the one who knows everything, has all the answers and often fills whatever gaps need to be filled. Mindi’s relationship-centric approach is focused on Frozen Fire clients. A self-described overachiever and perfectionist, she is usually the first person clients and prospective clients have contact with when working with Frozen Fire.

    Strategy Development Manager

    LIZ LeGRANDE

    Strategy Development Manager

    Liz made quite an impression when she interned at Frozen Fire during her last semester as a film student at SMU. In fact, she holds a distinct honor—the first intern to be hired as a full-time employee. “I graduated knowing I had a job, which was awesome,” she smiles. She’s been with Frozen Fire ever since. While her creative flair and deft organizational skills make her a natural producer, she was intrigued by the diverse services Frozen Fire offers to digital marketing clients. After four years in video production, Liz began her transition into her new role as a Digital Marketing Specialist and then carved her niche as a Marketing Communications Manager. During this time, Liz managed the needs of several digital marketing clients, taking ownership of the strategy, content, design, and completion of: website maintenance and content creation, landing pages, e-mail marketing, SEO, SEM and social media projects.

    During her years managing accounts and working closely with clients, Liz realized that her real passion is in strategy creation. Frozen Fire’s growth has allowed Liz to step into the role of Strategy Development Manager.

    “I love talking with potential and current clients about their goals and using that information to create a strategy that they can get excited about. We aren’t a boxed marketing solution, our strategies are built with the client’s needs in mind, which honestly makes them more fun to create.”

    In her current role, Liz works with potential clients to explain how Frozen Fire’s services may fit their needs and helps with the onboarding process and initial strategy development for new clients. Liz also assists with strategy creation and communication for current clients.

    Liz is happy to be working alongside like-minded colleagues. “I enjoy how the team blends and works together. Somebody always has your back. We actually care about one another on a personal level in addition to working together—and I think that culture shows not only in our work, but the way we work with our clients.”

    JORDAN BROOKS

    Client Support Specialist

    If it hadn’t been for some soul searching, Jordan may have been wearing a white coat and filling your prescriptions at CVS. While his parents thought being a pharmacist was a good career choice, Jordan knew he had to pursue his real loves—video and photography. The radio and film department at Texas A&M Commerce turned out to be a good fit. “I worked on the weekly news program,” he says. “I really enjoyed going out and getting stories.” An internship brought him to Frozen Fire and affirmed his career choice as a visual storyteller. “I like telling client stories because they don’t know how,” he admits. “I like to think about the meaning that needs to be conveyed, the purpose of the video, how it’s going to help them in the future. I like finding the perfect kind of music, the perfect shots.” Jordan was delighted when his skills and dedication earned him a full-time position with the company. With hundreds of productions now under his belt, he’s also become something of a social media savant, creating content for a variety of clients. ”When you come to Frozen Fire, you know that we’re going to do our best—whether it’s a video, photography shoot or social media campaign—to achieve your goals. We’re not just about making money. We’re about making money for you.”

    TRAE SWAYZE

    Videographer, Photographer & Editor

    Growing up as an only child, films were Trae’s best friends. “I always loved the epicness of film and its magic. I would reenact everything with my Batman action figures and dream,” he admits. “I ended up on a college film set one summer and fell in love with the process and the behind-the-scenes aspect of film.” It’s no surprise that Trae ended up as a film major at Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, Texas. An internship brought him to Frozen Fire, and he frequently partnered with the company on projects while he ran his own freelance business following graduation in 2010. He joined Frozen Fire full time in 2013. “I enjoy being able to express myself creatively—being able to work with a creative team and share the day with people who are also creative.” Trae especially likes using his creative powers of persuasion to craft compelling stories for clients. “While I may not relate to a certain product itself, I do relate to emotions so I try to relate that emotion to the audience. I like making people feel a certain way with music and imagery—creating an experience. Suddenly, it’s not just a widget anymore, it’s big as life—it’s become something you really need or enjoy.” “At Frozen Fire, we put a tremendous amount of effort into giving the client what they need—which means giving them what they want and stuff they didn’t even know they needed. We take them to a new level where it’s not just about money. I don’t like working for money. I like working to make a difference.”

  • WILSON HOANG

    WILSON HOANG

    Motion Graphic Artist

    Wilson Hoang has known since as early as the 3rd grade that he had a future in the creative industry, especially when his teacher recommended to his parents that he enroll in the after school arts program. Later, in high school, Wilson fell in love with films and the production process. At the end of a movie, he would intently watch the credits, imagining one day his name added to the list. Excited to pursue his dream, Wilson went on to study film at UT-Arlington, where he found a pension for motion graphics. “If you wanted to film an airplane scene for a movie, you have to spend a lot on permits, crew, and actors. In motion graphics, you can create your own world. I realized how much power color, shape, movement, and texture could affect the viewer’s emotions.” During his senior year, Wilson interned at Frozen Fire. He calls it his first real world experience working in video production. “I saw professionalism and passion in the entire staff and knew one day I wanted to be a part of it.” After graduating university, Wilson worked at a TV station. It was there he learned more of the business and marketing side of the work, as opposed to production and content creation. “I gained so much experience working one-on-one with different companies and brands that all had different needs. There’s no greater feeling when the client finally watches the video you created for them and they love it.” Wilson has found his way back to Frozen Fire after many years. “To see how the company has grown since my intern days truly shows the passion it has for their clients’ success.”
