Bruce Coykendall

Producer / Director  & autocrat of audio.

BA Music, Recording Arts CSU Chico

The nice guy. People like Bruce and Bruce likes people. He's been making people feel comfortable in front of cameras and behind microphones for over 25 years.  He coined the term "hang factor", a special trait that makes people genuinely comfortable and like to be around you. When he's not playing golf, he's probably walking his dog Sophie...or he's playing golf. 

Bruce grew up in Tahoe, and remains our executive in charge of recreation. After college Bruce was the engineer for Cloud 9 Recording Studios in Chico, CA. He quickly realized that audio was half of video and made the leap to production in an ad agency. His relationship with Christian through their work in a design firm, followed by meeting Steve in the broadcast world, became the connections that would someday lead to the formation of Speakeasy Agency. Also an Emmy® Award winner, Bruce has been in on ground-breaking projects for various healthcare organizations, financial institutions, universities and the State of California - just to name a few.

For more than a decade, Christian has led the Creative Services endeavors for multitude of clients, helping them build their brand, tell their story, and grow their businesses along the way.
