STCK is a specialized creative agency for purpose-driven organizations that need to get attention, increase membership numbers, explain complex ideas, and change the world for good.
STCK was born in 2019 from four women who dare to make the world a better place.
Our mission reaches far beyond a focus of revenue and profit. We operate as an ecosystem, where all relationships are equally important and mutually beneficial. The STCK Network is a social community and one that functions from a distributed work platform. As a social enterprise, we integrate ourselves into the social fabric of society and work to support positive change that we believe in.
STCK works with clients and organizations whose sole purpose is to work towards the greater good and in no way demean the existence of people, animals, and the environment worldwide. At STCK we are focused on inclusive growth, social impact, and employee well-being. We hold strongly the importance of inclusivity and empowerment of all people no matter their race, color, age, sexual preference, pronouns, disability, genetic information, socioeconomic status, or religion and strive to partner with artists and organizations who have been traditionally underrepresented.
OUR SCIENTIFIC GOAL
Multi-pronged collaborations with underrepresented artists and purpose-driven brands that proactively support transformative change and growth at the systems-level.
OUR CREATIVE GOAL
Altruists rise to the top of an oversaturated market.
We are a creative collective drawn to those who embrace change and dare to go out on a limb. Dreamers, doers, and people with plans that make the world a little better.

Dave has been glued to a computer since Mavis Beacon taught him typing in the 90’s. He founded Dactyl Media to bring transparency and data-driven results to a digital marketing space that focuses too much time on vanity metrics. When he’s not tinkering with ad funnels (with way too many Chrome tabs open), Dave enjoys spending time with his wife and family, hiking, frequenting concerts, or trying out new recipes in the kitchen.
In recent years, he was able to bring his expertise to help non-profits and mission-driven organizations harness the mystical power of the algorithms to make an impact with their digital footprint and, ultimately, the world. Dave’s work has helped these organizations to not only reach more people with their message, but also to measure and track the results of their campaigns in order to continue to improve and refine their approach.
