Ciara Bringardner

You probably know that "Operations Director" means the person that makes ends meet, but maybe not that it also means almost everything else no one has the gumption to do. Somehow both funny and no-nonsense, Ciara is the glue that holds Pulp together.

Davis Hart

Davis likes to make stuff in the shop and has been known to tinker on engines. Sometimes he does a little producing/engineering.

Steve Head

Steve wears a lot of hats at Pulp. He leads our Pulp Presents team, books studio time, contributes to the social media and content creation teams, as well as dream building in the business and artist relations departments. He’s your go to nerd if you want to talk effects pedals and synthesizers.

Danny Clifton

Danny cut his teeth in audio engineering as a multi-instrumentalist songwriter, producer, and artist in his own right. His musical projects include Jane Jane Pollock, Danny, and Room Thirteen. Having spent the last 6 years audio engineering live events in New Orleans and as a technical director for live productions across the southeast, he joined the Pulp team as a full-time studio engineer in Gainesville in April 2019.

Colin Curry

Colin is the Project Manager for our Contemporary Arts Fabrication team, but he thinks it’s funny to refer to himself as a “Physical Content Strategist". On his own time he’s an oil painter, but at Pulp he helps turn others’ ideas into reality.

Erin also headed the collaborative installation at FORM music festival this year.

Winston Goertz-Giffen

Winston has been making music and engineering sound since childhood. Recording mixtapes from the radio as a second grader, he discovered multi-tracking by using two boomboxes. He started out engineering punk bands in warehouses in Oakland and over the last 17 years has honed his craft across professional studios in the Bay Area. His musical projects include Saything, Ted the block, and a yet unnamed modular synth project. He loves building modular synths.

H.L. Nelly

Nelly has been making music since she could walk. A multi-instrumentalist songwriter and producer behind post-punk projects such as Naked Lights, Surplus 1980, and most recently Smiley, she started her professional engineering career in Oakland after graduating with a degree in Sound Arts from SAE’s Expression College in the Bay Area. She loves getting drum sounds, recording to tape, and her dog Bogner (named after Ursula Bogner, minimal analog synth legend of the 1960’s).
