Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Since 2000, Jeff has positioned Big Rig Media as a premier web developing and marketing firm, and he and his talented staff have created a thriving online and print presence for retail, franchising, hospitality, entertainment, fashion, interior design, and multiple other professional service organizations across the United States.
Jeff believes passionately in the powerful value of custom applications, from enterprise hosting to feature-rich user access to content management systems, and as the creative and technical engine driving the Big Rig Media process (a.k.a. the Big Picture Guy), Jeff makes it his, and his extremely talented staff’s, first priority to stay current on all the latest internet trends technology. Need a creative solution, from print ads to TV spots to full-blown websites that Big Rig Media also hosts and supports? Then Jeff is the guy you need.
Jeff has been featured in EQ Magazine, M/E Insights (Music Industry) and ARVC (Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds) Insight Tech Talk, as well as speaking throughout the nation on new tech and online marketing. And when he’s not busy (which isn’t very often) eating, breathing and sleeping all things Big Rig Media, he enjoys hitting the weights, links, or the yard work with his wife.
Starting her career as a print designer, Amy eventually migrated into website design, establishing herself as an award-winning talent who has overseen and guided both the creative and technical direction, both online and off, for Big Rig Media’s roster clients. Before returning to her hometown of La Quinta and joining Big Rig Media in 2008, Amy worked with several other Southern California design firms, and she boasts extensive experience in publishing as well. Amy received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Design | Media Arts from UCLA, and in her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family.
Project Manager | Marketing Coordinator
After receiving her Interior Design degree in the mountains of western North Carolina, Rosalind moved to the interior design mecca of West Hollywood. There she discovered that her true passion was computers and graphic design. Starting as a print designer, she migrated into web design and learned a slew of new tools, all aspects of applying graphics to the web as well as all sides of the design business. Her organization skills make her a perfect Project Manager/Marketing Coordinator who also enjoys hiking, painting and spending time with her family.
Ernesto Arellano Jr.
Joining our ranks in August 2013, Ernesto has hit the ground running – and his infectious passion for web development has consumed us all. He loves learning and taking on new challenges, like that of turning a web design or concept into an enjoyable reality and user experience, and his quick study and talent have transformed him from front-end developer to a more skilled, and more complete, web developer. And outside of work? Ernesto is equally passionate about personal web projects that help hone his skills and teach him new ones. He also is a bona fide football (we call it soccer) fanatic, late night video gamer, guitar player and film aficionado.
Since 2004, Ramsey, a Graphic Design and Multimedia grad from the Art Institute of Costa Mesa, has been delivering advertising and marketing solutions to small and non-profit businesses throughout Southern California. If you need a creative project done, look no further than Ramsey, who’s been brainstorming and producing fresh concepts for all our traditional offline services – including brochure design, logo design, business cards and more – since his arrival in the Big Rig Media offices. And when not hard at work, conjuring up our client’s latest print work or collateral campaigns, Ramsey’s favorite thing to do is play sergeant-at-arms. Really – he’s our in-house black belt, and if you don’t like a design or concept of his, well… you get the idea.
Graphic Designer | Web Developer
A recent graduate from the Art Institute of California-Inland Empire, Kim earned a BS in Web Design & Interactive Media. Well trained and skilled in all the latest design apps and development languages, she likes to think of herself as equal parts developer and designer, and we’d definitely agree. Her primary responsibility is creating many of our clients’ newsletters, and when she isn’t sitting in front of her Mac, she enjoys hanging out with her daughter and indulging in their favorite activity together: trips to the Magic Kingdom, a.k.a. Disneyland.
Network Engineer to Web Developer
In his new role as web developer, Michael will be using his web developing skills in Photoshop, WordPress, Dreamweaver, HTML, CSS and applying his SEO knowledge to Big Rig Media client websites. He is also currently learning PHP. With eight years of technical environment experience supporting the telecommunications and construction sectors, Michael handled everything including company-wide virus attacks, email hackings and the replacement of broken laptop monitors. Michael attended ITT Technical Institute in North Denver, Colorado to study computer information and securities (CIS).
Michael strives to provide consistently positive results in all that he does. After digesting the latest in the ever-evolving technology world, Michael fishes, cooks and enjoys spending time with family and friends.
With a family rooted as hardworking, entrepreneurial business owners in the automotive business, Andrew began working with entertainers, music artists, realtors, and a major investigation firm handling missing person cases. He studied at ITT tech for two years while pursuing his own interests in arts and technology specifically in graphic design for a jewelry designer and in web design and development. In technology, Andrew has experience developing video game environments and characters using modern software such as 3Ds Max Maya Zbrush and game engines such as UE4 Unity and CryEngine.
Andrew looks forward to applying his knowledge to help Big Rig Media clients use cutting-edge technology to grow their businesses.

Shakeh’s role is arguably one of our most important, since she’s the one who keep the books and makes sure all accounts – both payable and receivable – are current. Which, needless to say, makes all involved very happy. But that’s really just the tip of her iceberg of talents, and when she’s not busy keeping Big Rig Media running on time and on the tracks, you can usually find her enjoying some retail therapy. Yes, she can shop till she drops, and we mean that literally.
Office Security | Lunchroom Mooch
Don’t let his cute, cuddly demeanor fool you – this pooch can guard his domain with the best of them. After all, there are snacks to be had, and Brody knows full well that a happy, well-protected office is a generous, treat-sharing office.
