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.

LEADERSHIP.

Here at Frozen Fire, we are always seeking new opportunities made through doing what we love, what we are good at and what brings value to the business. This quest for growth has been displayed again and again by our leadership through the years. Brad Davis, our CEO, and Brandy Wygal, our Director of Client Relations, are now spear heading the expansion of Frozen Fire into the Colorado market, while, Frozen Fire’s President, Mindi Long continues to lead and manage all day to day operations of the business.

Mindi’s relationships with clients, marketing expertise, and reach in the Texas market have strengthened Frozen Fire’s position in the digital marketing and video production industries through the years. Brad and Brandy both grew up in the Dallas area and were able to utilize their relationships in the growth of Frozen Fire in the Texas market. While putting down roots and relocating to Idaho Springs and through their continuous work in Colorado over the past several years, they have developed similar relationships to bring success and development in a new part of the country.

The expansion of Frozen Fire into a new market has taken place deliberately and gradually. While our Dallas location continues to serve our clients nationwide and remains as the Frozen Fire corporate office, we are excited about the opportunities that come with having a second location and the benefits that brings to not only the Colorado market but for our entire team as well.

The combination of our Dallas roots and the expansion to Colorado is a valuable connection, as a large proportion of Colorado tourists are from Texas. Our knowledge of the Texas market aids in our marketing efforts within Colorado and our philosophies to help our clients continue to grow their business remains universal and are seeing success across the board with this transition.

    President

    Mindi will be the first to tell you that long-lasting relationships are very important to her—both in her professional and her private life. It’s a refreshing point of view in a fast-paced world where a growing number of things seem temporary. Brad Davis, Frozen Fire’s founder and Chief Executive Officer, was immediately struck by Mindi’s calm, capable and committed demeanor almost 20 years ago—and he hired her on the spot. 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 and its employees. A self-described overachiever and perfectionist, she ensures client relationships get off to a great start while overseeing Frozen Fire’s day-to-day operations and the flawless execution of each project. “I like to instill confidence in our clients. It’s important that they always know we will handle every aspect of their project with confidence and care,” she says.

    Liz made quite an impression when she interned at Frozen Fire during her last semester as a film student at SMU.

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 Strategic 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.”

    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.”

    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.”
