Ted planted the seeds of Scout Digital from his college dorm room when he created Middkid.com, a more fun alternative to Middlebury College’s official website. Over twenty years later, he still relishes the creativity and entrepreneurship that comes with building websites and digital marketing. He’s also the President of Union Street Media, an agency that develops custom digital marketing and website solutions for real estate.
If you know Scout, you know Nathaniel (Nat). Over the last 10 years, Nat has developed high-performing marketing strategies using video content throughout the sales funnel to drive results. His company White + Joyal Creative was successfully acquired by Scout Digital in 2019. You may recognize our logo as his faithful companion, Yogi.
VP of Marketing & Branding
Emily is our digital marketing mechanic. People come to her because they understand the need for marketing, but not how it works – or how to have fun doing it. Recognized as Vermont’s “Rising Star” and a “Woman to Watch” for her innovation, Emily takes an open-minded, data-driven approach to develop highly effective marketing strategies, social media content, and lead generation campaigns that win over your target audience. She’s also the lucky owner of loyal mutt Topper, our “Office Good Boy.”
Director of Operations
Jake liked Scout Digital so much as a client he came to work for us! Jake empowers clients through our project process because, well, he has been there. His admiration for Scout Digital as a client translates into his understanding, compassion, and deep knowledge of what we do. It doesn’t hurt he ran a pretty successful startup for 5 years. Entrepreneurship is in his DNA.
As an 8th generation Vermonter, and Ben & Jerry, yes… THE Ben & Jerry, as family friends, Jake has leveled up our street cred in the Vermont Entrepreneurial ecosystem.
John Cummin (he/him)
Director of Product Design
John uses his hybrid experience as both a UI/UX designer and a front-end web developer to design stunning screens that run smoothly. He knows how to work within the parameters of tech to craft beautiful user experiences that make you look good while delighting your audience. As a cat lover, he was stoked when his supposedly male cat, Cool Beans, gave birth to his lovable little rascal, Coffee “Mr. Man” Beans.
Mike Mierz (he/him)
Director of Growth
Mike has over 10+ years of sales and marketing experience in the industry. Success to him is directly correlated to the number of people he talks to each day. For Mike, sales are all about being direct yet empathetic. When talking with current or potential clients, his goal is to genuinely listen to their needs and get curious about solving their problems. Which leads to ideal relationships with our clients. Often the first point of contact, Mike’s first impression is to spark curiosity.
Mike hails from Colorado, Vermont’s larger brother, and shares in the same love of outdoors, food, and specialty coffee!
Roberta Molokandov (she/her)
Director of Strategy & Analytics
Roberta provides clients with stories backed by data to help them make sound business decisions. Hailing from a background in data analytics, economics, research, and overall resilience, Roberta values the importance of data but it doesn’t tell the full story. Roberta leads clients to make decisions through her storytelling and aligning their goals.
Roberta loves direct outcomes from her work which motivates her to dig deep into problems to find the best solution. Whether goals are higher-level or specific improvements, she is motivated to thread that narrative back to the client.
When not at Scout, Roberta is where most of our employees are– Outdoors! You will likely see her paddleboarding on the lake or skiing with friends. Also a pet lover, Mini & Rey are her two adorable cats.
FYI, did you know?! Russian was Roberta’s first language, albeit she may not speak it as well as she used to.
Editor & Animator
As a freelance digital artist who has been working in animation, 3D modeling, and video production for 10 years, Aaron works with you to bring your ideas into reality. His clients have ranged from small start-ups looking to promote their passion projects to international businesses such as Microsoft, Swarovski, and Salesforce. While he now carves video clips into compelling narratives, he used to be an ice carver.
Trevor Brown (he/him)
Trevor takes beautifully branded designs and brings them to life as fully fleshed-out responsive websites. Through his experience in a wide range of industries and hobbies from carpentry to bartending to auto mechanics, he’s honed a keen attention to detail and a well-rounded knowledge base. He’s happiest learning something new or doing anything outside, especially accompanied by his mid-sized mutt Wilson.
Nick loves a challenge, especially working through complex problems with clients. His 10+ years in web agency work have brought together his love of making things and helping people. Though ‘perfect’ can be the enemy of ‘done,’ Nick is proud of his attention to detail and ability to keep things on track. Nick thrives when given parameters and sees how far he can push the boundaries to solve the problem.
Nick’s cat Hazel, joins our growing team by rounding out our fur-workers. Known for her heart of gold, Hazel is an adorable long-hair Tuxedo/ Maine Coon mix.
Jamie Aponas (she/her)
Senior Product Designer
With a background in UX/UI, packaging, print, and digital marketing strategy, Jamie designs with every touch-point in mind. Whether it’s a business, customer or her local community, she is all about bringing people together. She joined Scout Digital to allow her to do this on a broader scale. If Jamie isn’t at Scout, she is taking advantage of Vermont’s outdoor playground or hunkered down writing in a local cafe.
Lasalle, known affectionately as Lassy, La La or Lols, is her mid-sized Lab-Chihuahua mix. He loves to snuggle up and swipe food out of careless hands.
Elena Rubinetti (she/her)
Digital Marketing Manager
Did you know we encounter up to 10,000 ads in a day? Elena is working hard to ensure our ad strategy is relevant and valuable to our customers. It isn’t just the narrative of the creative she has to manage; it’s guaranteeing potential customers take meaningful action.
Her background in Digital Marketing for B2B and B2C brands helps her strategize for scale while being mindful of mapping content to clients’ marketing and sales goals. This success comes with a strong empathy for our clients, where she can align their business success with the right tactics and campaigns to ensure results.
Elena enjoys the outdoors outside work, beating her friends at Mario Kart and likely listening to Kendrick Lamar. Expanding Scout Digital’s fur family, her dog Remy and cat Julian have added to our paw team cuteness.
When he’s not scouting ahead or chasing off coyotes, Yogi can be seen basking in the sun, receiving pets from clients, and howling when Nat leaves the office.
Resident Good Boy
Topper takes sleeping on staff feet seriously, occasionally rolling over for scratches from his favorite clients. As the Resident Good Boy, he doesn’t rock the boat, refrains from barking, and listens to commands.
