Meet the Team

“The Wizard”

Nicknamed almost twenty years ago, Liz is that rare, whole-brained combination of creative artist and super-nerd programmer.

Liz began Bemis Promotions as an advertising agency for authors in 2002, before joining forces with Trevor to form Spark Creative Parters.  She has worked in the design and technology fields for more than two decades with clients in a wide range of industries, including publishing, restaurants, non-profit, small business, corporate, military/government and educational institutions. Her consulting and corporate work includes acclaimed site design and comprehensive eCommerce site development. Additionally, she has implemented Ad Agency-led international marketing campaigns and managed application development for the US Air Force. Liz was a 6-time Golden Heart Finalist and a 2012 Winner.  She publishes Small Town Contemporary Romance and Romantic Suspense as Elizabeth Bemis.

She lives near Cincinnati, Ohio with her son and various fur-bearing creatures.  When she’s not in front of her computer she can occasionally be found running with her dog, training for the Little Miami Triathlon and the Flying Pig (half) Marathon.

“The General”

For reasons that defy understanding, Trevor refuses to publicly acknowledge the meaning behind his nickname, though many theories abound.

Trevor began Griffith Creative Solutions fifteen years ago as a sideline while working his way up to Director of Marketing and Communications at a university, before joining forces with Liz to create Spark Creative Partners. Trevor’s outside the box thinking has won numerous awards in the educational sector. Included among these were the CASE District V Bronze Award for Online Innovation for developing an entire campus in the Minecraft world and a CASE District V Silver Award for Best Institutional Website. Trevor has a B.A. in graphic design, more than fifteen years of experience in web design. In his spare time, he runs the Greater Cincinnati Soapbox Derby.

Trevor lives near Cincinnati, Ohio with a bad-mannered cat and his two children. He can often be found in his workshop doing woodworking, or training to tackle the Tough Mudder again.

“The Closer”

April got her nickname as the chief closer of support and help desk tickets during her tenure with Bemis Promotions. She carries her excellent customer service, time management, and newsletter-creation skills on to Spark Creative Partners!

As a 2014 Public Relations graduate from Northern Kentucky University, April strives to make her presence known in the tri-state.  She is responsible for many of the outreach responsibilities as well as helping with marketing strategies. April joined Bemis Promotions in 2014.

April resides in Blue Ash, OH with her partner in crime, his jr. partner in crime, and her two feline fuzz balls of joy. She has been active in the theatre community, working on various works in the last few years such as a community production of Godspell and voice work for a local cartoonist. April recently caught the writing bug and started a movie review blog, April Watches Movies. She enjoys creative works of all kinds and nature.
