Christine McClureCoordinator | email@example.com
The lovely Ms. McClure is our most recent find... she's smart, witty, on her game, and has a clear plan on how she wants to add value to Mosaic and our clients — in other words, she's a keeper! Christine interfaces with our clients on many levels, ranging from meetings, project timelines, managing deliverables, domestic and international shipping and drayage, problem solving and aversion, and bridging the gap between client wants and needs and real-world design and production teams.
Majoring in Business Management with an emphasis on Entrepreneurship, and a minor in Legal Studies from San Jose State University, Christine spends much of her free time with family and friends and has been known to enjoy her nieces emphatically! Her free time is spent in many ways... outdoor activities such as hiking and bicycling, travels to lovely beaches, and skydiving, to name a few.
Jim BrasilProduct Engineer | firstname.lastname@example.org
Jim is our resident nerd — he's earned this badge of honor for his ability to take on any technological challenge and push through with super hero bravado. His role at Mosaic stems from his special gift, running our cutting edge digital efforts, along with being on our development team for all custom programming needs. Recently, he contributed to the design and fabrication of a completely robotic controlled CNC router for our internal use in building displays and conceptual prototypes for our clients — this would not have been remotely possible without his Trekkie skill set.
Majoring in Mechanical Engineering from San Jose State University, Jim spends much of his free time driving his Audi sports car in the mountains and at track days, flying model helicopters, building custom solar panels, gaming with friends and family, and riding his quad with Mosaic staff.

When Mr. Prentice isn't in the creative hot seat, he spends his free time strolling beaches, hiking through redwoods, trekking third world and European countries for unusual cuisine, and mountain biking.
Renata CostaAccount Manager | firstname.lastname@example.org
We're elated to have the spunky Ms. Costa on board! She's been with Mosaic since the company's inception and we'd be lost without her "all in" approach. Renata engages with our clients and internal teams to keep expectations and schedules grounded and on schedule.
Renata is currently enrolled at West Valley College, focusing on a degree in Interior Design. Her free time is spent in many ways... her love of animals has lead her to rescuing five, yes FIVE, dogs, one cat, and a squirrel. She enjoys swimming, painting and drawing, participating in charity events, camping, and riding her Suzuki quad with friends and family.
Nikita AzevedoMarketing / Social Media | email@example.com

Graduating with honors from San Jose State University with a degree in Psychology, Nikita is our resident spitfire with tons of energy to spare, so stand back — she just may implode someday! Keeping up with her many interests is tough, but her top choices are motorsport racing, hunting for unique vintage collectibles, illustration, concerts, and international travel.
Jon JurardoSenior Production Artist | firstname.lastname@example.org

When asked, "Do you have any hobbies?," we received big glowing eyes and this came out: "I collect and restore vintage tube radios, as well as phonographs from yesteryear. I love metal detecting, collecting bottles from the 1800's, off-road 4x4 rides, camping and hiking. But my biggest love is photography."
