Meet The Team

Lauren Collicutt, Administrative Assistant

I am Lauren, the go-to for help or just a quick chat here at Outset Media. I moved to Victoria, BC in 2015 all the way from the Darkside of Nova Scotia for a complete change, and started working with these lovely people as an Administrator. I have a number of responsibilities here, which I manage to take care of with accuracy and a smile – I can pretty much help with anything!

Gareth Turner, National Sales Manager

I am married to a wonderful woman with whom I share the joy of raising two incredible boys. My favorite pastimes include; reading, surfing, kiteboarding, snowboarding, family camping trips, family game nights and being involved in the boys sports. I believe in the importance of family time and firmly believe that our products help create positive family interaction.

Rob Addison, Administrative Assistant

I graduated from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and have spent the last 8 years in the business sector honing my customer service skills and business management. Now I belong to Outset Media because they know just how awesome I am. I’m that “Real Person” in the office that you’ll talk to when you need help.

Natasha Grimsson, Canadian Administrator

My name is Natasha but I am not Russian nor am I a cartoon character (Rocky & Bullwinkle reference).

I moved to Victoria in 2005, joined the Outset Media team in March 2008 and still love every minute of it.

I live with my husband Bob, and our cat Pixie. I am a left-handed Pisces who loves animals and travelling – who doesn’t love adventure?!

Paul Hogan, US Key Accounts Manager

I have been in sales for over 30 years, so when I joined Outset Media it was refreshing to meet like-minded individuals that are genuinely helpful, courteous and eager for my successes, let alone theirs. The camaraderie of the sales team is infectious, but closely aligned with a strong work ethic and a “Customer comes first” approach.

Steve Kragelj, Data Manager

I have been happily married to my lovely wife, Cindy since 1995. She is truly the love of my life and my best friend. We both love to golf but also enjoy singing Karaoke and spending time with our friends.

In the summer of 2008, I had decided that it was time for a career change. I was looking for an opportunity to work for a smaller company, but also one that had potential for growth.  With that being said, it was important for me to find work that was fun & exciting, but also challenging. Wow, a position at Outset Media was just what the doctor ordered.....and it nearly fell right into my lap.

Chantal Gabriell, Art Director

I'm a creative communications professional with 20 years experience in graphic design and project management. However my launch into design actually began pre-computers at age five with my first "book" entitled The Mouses Problem: How to Get the Chis. Spelling and grammar would come later...

Paul Albhouse, Canadian Account Representative

I have been a Canadian Account Representative at Outset Media since 2002. Being part of a company that creates and distributes family products with an emphasis on fun and education is tremendously rewarding.

Emily Chen, Graphic Designer

Emily would write her own bio if she weren't too busy with the demanding lifestyle of a graphic designer, as well as being a lifestyle model for our flyers and catalogues.

Allegra Vernon, Creative Director

I have been Creative Director here for way too long. Does anyone have a job for a night owl that likes to have their own way about all things design? That freaks out if you insult her typography and always leans toward illustrated design solutions so she can draw the pictures? No? Well, I better stay here then. It's not so bad.
