Ali Pariseau, Founder
Before founding A-Squared Media, Ali spent many years (let’s say more than 10 but less than 20 and leave her actual age a bit of a mystery) working in almost every department at ad agencies across Texas. The foundation she built learning about the creative, production, account service, and media processes was invaluable to her ability to understand what it takes to start her own agency and make it successful. For her, it is all about the relationships.
Ali has seen firsthand that the best media buys are born out of rock-solid relationships between agency and client, between agency and media partner, and–most importantly–between the brand and its audience. These types of relationships cultivate open and honest communication, facilitate the creation of solid strategy, and deliver the most effective media buys, yielding clients’ desired results. Ali has innate communication skills and the uncanny ability to take the most complex situation and boil it down to a straightforward, effective solution.
In addition to her obvious passion for media and advertising, Ali has many other interests, most revolving around having as much fun as possible. It is well known by anyone who follows her on social media that she is a live music zealot and attends a somewhat obscene amount of concerts, her annual favorite being BottleRock in Napa, which also plays to her passion for wine. A loud and enthusiastic sports fan as well as a proud graduate of San Diego State University, she attends as many SDSU Aztec football and basketball games as she can. Ali loves to travel and see new places as often as possible (much to Spike’s [the cat] and Ginny Weasley’s [the dog] dismay).

Will Ferrell’s Birthday
A-Squared Media is closed every year on July 16th in celebration of our favorite Elf/Figure Skater/Anchor Man’s Birthday. We love Will Ferrell, we love how much he makes us laugh, we love how he celebrated San Diego with his portrayal of Ron Burgundy and so, here at A-Squared Media, we have declared his birthday one of our official agency holidays.
Yes, that’s right… July 16th is Will Ferrell’s birthday and if today happens to be July 16th then you won’t find any of the A-Squared team at work. If you didn’t know before, now you do, so go have some spaghetti with maple syrup and Pop Tarts or something! And, while you are at it, enjoy watching some of his classic, hilarious clips right here!!
and scaly ones too…
They say that pets make us happier and healthier! Their presence helps us stay relaxed and kicks up the happy hormones in our brain – what could be better!?
Here at A-Squared Media, we have a special kind of love for our four legged/gilled and floppy friends. You can expect to see some the company pets hanging around our staff, especially when there’s food involved!
