Glint Adv. Welcomes New Account Manager & Content Specialist

Glint Advertising - February 29, 2024 - 0 comments

Glint Advertising, a full-service marketing, branding and advertising firm based in north Fort Worth, welcomes account manager Jonathan Kutney and content specialist Tori Taylor. Both additions are Fort Worth locals bringing their project management and social media talents to the 24-year-old agency

“We’re happy to have Jonathan and Tori. Jonathan assists with operations, and we can’t wait to unleash his marketing automations expertise on our leads strategies, ” says Founder and CEO Craig Lloyd. “And, I can’t say enough about how Tori has added to our content creation team. Versatile should be her middle name.”

A self-proclaimed contrarian, Kutney is a graduate of Texas Wesleyan University, jiu-jitsu enthusiast and a lover of philosophy, who was a surprise visit to the agency. His role at Glint will heavily fall into project management, training and client relations. 

“He was dressed to the hilt and ready to sell himself the day he visited. It’s a shame, I thought Jonathan was my UberEats driver, says Erayne Gee Hill, Glint Advertising vice president. “But, a pleasant surprise. Jonathan is quick, well-read, and has a healthy curiosity–a must-have to be a Glintster,” she adds.

Taylor is a University of North Texas journalism and strategic communications graduate. Her experience as a content creator for non-profits, penchant for pushing the envelope and her interest in film make her a great fit for Glint, says Erayne Gee Hill.

“Tori impressed me immediately because of her artistic sensibilities, penetrating eye contact (rare these days) and intensity. She gets it, and is willing to try new things,” she adds.

As is the Glint Advertising custom, get a sense of the new Glintsters.

Get to Know Jonathan Kutney:

Q: If you could bring back any fashion trend, what would it be?

A: Classic men’s attire anywhere from the 20s to the 40s. I like the mixture of class and rugged capability you often see with those styles. They were classy but did not place form over function, and I can appreciate that kind of practicality.

Q: What book are you currently reading?

A: Hagakure by Yamamoto Tsunetomo. It’s a non-fiction book detailing the codes of conduct and ethical principles of the samurai. Hagakure is regarded as one of the most influential Japanese texts ever. Dating over 300 years, it beautifully details the mysterious and enigmatic philosophies of samurai culture through the eyes of Yamamoto Tsunetomo, the patriarch of one of Japan’s most prolific warrior clans.

Q: If you could eat one meal every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

A: It would undoubtedly be a grilled sunset steak from my go-to butcher, Z-Bar Cattle Co., paired with white cheddar mashed potatoes and jalapeño poppers. My girlfriend, Brittani, likes to tease me about it, but I proudly embrace my identity as a bona fide “meat and potatoes” kind of guy.

Q: You have a late-night talk show. Who do you invite as your first guest?

A: My first guest would undoubtedly be Tim Kennedy, a former UFC fighter and Navy Seal. Beyond his impressive background, what intrigues me is his work with “Sheepdog Response,” a civilian training service offering a diverse array of courses— from firearms safety and jiu-jitsu to overlanding and medical training. Tim’s mantra, “No one is coming to save you. You need to be prepared to be your own first responder” resonates with my value for true independence. While community and others are vital, his philosophy underscores the importance of being an asset rather than a liability, a perspective I find not just valuable but crucial.

Get to Know Tori Taylor:

Q: What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your reading your professional bio? 

A: I cosplay, and I’m a really big cinema geek. Cosplay is dressing up as a fictional character from movies, TV shows, books, video games, etc. (basically Halloween on steroids). Usually, individuals who partake in the hobby go to conventions, do photoshoots, or even do it for social media. For some, it’s more of a display of makeup skills or costume design, while others simply do it for fun. A couple of the characters I have been in the past include Gamora from The Guardians of the Galaxy, Domino from Deadpool 2, Blossom from The Power Puff Girls, and more recently, Tiana from The Princess and the Frog, and Froppy from My Hero Academia. At some point, I plan to cosplay as Bakugo and Shoto Todoroki from My Hero Academia and Nezuko from Demon Slayer. Most of the characters I pick are because I feel connected to them in some way or because I just like their character design.

Q: What three apps can you not live without?

A: YouTube, TikTok, Google

Q: You have a late-night talk show. Who do you invite as your first guest? 

A: Rihanna. I would choose Rihanna as my first guest because she is one of my favorite artists, and growing up, I modeled a lot of my style after her. She is also a big forehead girlie like me. In the interview, I would ask her about her different brands, future projects, and her most dreaded question, “Where is the album?”

Q: If you could pick up a new skill in an instant, what would it be? 

A: Acting. It just seems like a fun skill to pick up. I’ve dabbled in most of the arts and never tackled acting because I don’t have the skillset for it.

Q: As a visual person, what do you think most people get wrong?

A: Their first opinion. Most people get their first opinion wrong because they make assumptions within the first few seconds of seeing something or meeting someone new, and they often only see it from a surface level.
