One Team One Dream
Ragtag bunch of misfits or a perfectly-assembled force of talent and experience? Perhaps a little of both. Fertile young minds, marketing mavericks, award-winners, well-connected community stalwarts, and seasoned vets—the sum of our parts equals a team fine-tuned to produce results.
Video Production and Content Team
Twelve Legs Marketing was founded by me, Jason Carter — a former Television Anchor and Reporter — who was looking for a way to continue doing what he loved, without all the breaking news and missed family time that used to fill my days. During my time in television and continuing today, I hold more than 25 awards from professional broadcast organizations for my use of video and storytelling. I am also an FAA Licensed Drone Pilot. Now, with the backing of my wife and 2 dogs (12 total legs), I am honored to bring more than a decade of video production and editing to you. With a love and passion for sports, I have also worked with local colleges, high schools, and individual families to bring their sport adventures to life. Twelve Legs Marketing is the leader in producing high quality recruiting videos for those athletes who hope to continue their athletic career after high school, or just want some memories to one day share with their kids. We produce high quality videos to support your business and advertising needs. From explainer videos, to TV commercials, to drone footage of buildings you want to feature, we can deliver it all under one roof.
Hello, my name is Ryan! I’m very excited to join the Twelve Legs Marketing team as a video producer. My goal as a video producer is to bring your visions to life and illustrate the perfect image for your company. I specialize in videography, photography and editing. Over the last three years, I have created content for numerous individuals, universities, NCAA conferences and esport organizations. My other experiences include graphic design, communications, freelancing and marketing. A motto I live by is to continue to be great because we all can showcase greatness within ourselves. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in sports administration from Lock Haven University which is located in central Pennsylvania. During my four years there, I work within the athletic department where I photograph all 17 sports at the time. During my tenure, I ran for the school’s track and field specializing in sprints and jumps where I accumulated all-PSAC honors and school records.
While away from my time at work, I spend my time adventuring around Colorado with my camera looking for places to capture breathtaking images. I love meeting creatives such as myself who share the same passion in content creation. Also, I enjoy playing video games with friends and competitively as well as streaming on twitch. Looking to try new things every day because I enjoy getting out of my comfort zone which will lead to becoming a better me.
I would love for you to share your ideas with me and allow me to portray it to its pinnacle.
Social Media Manager
I’m a T – shaped marketer, with work experience in London and Barcelona (where I am based right now).
I’m responsible for creating and managing social media campaigns (both organic and paid), social media content and design, guiding brand voice, as well as PPC campaigns, across ad platforms. (push and pull channels)
In my spare time I am part of a dance crew. I dedicate some time in the gym as part of my morning routine before heading to the office and I always enjoy a long stroll along the Barcelona beach.
My true inspiration and what stands behind everything I do is being present and being the best version of yourself.
I look forward to connecting with you and developing your social media presence in the most unique and fitting way to complement your business goals!
Spanish Content Specialist
Hey and Hola!
It’s great to meet you and y es un placer conocerse! I’m a Washington State Native but I’ve been living in Spanish Speaking countries for over 10 years. Right out of college, where I studied Kinesiology (with the idea of becoming a physical therapist) I moved to Peru and volunteered in a health center. I moved to Spain shortly after and I’ve been living here ever since. I currently reside on a small holding in Tenerife, Spain, a small Spanish island off the coast of Western Africa (think Hawaii), with my lovely fiancé, two dogs, two cats and a few dozen chickens.
I received a Master’s in International Education from the Universidad de Alcalá, Spain and I’ve been translating full time for over 5 years now. Based on my studies and work/life experience I mainly focus on medical translations but I’ve also translated everything from marketing brochures and SEO focused websites to documentaries and card games.
I look forward to meeting you and taking your business bilingual to reach a whole new audience. If you need it translated, we can get it done!

Have a new campaign to set up? I am your guy! From implementing on multiple channels, to taking daily care of your investment through detailed analysis and optimization.
Don’t be afraid to step into the digital space – just be sure that you are going in the right direction. There is a “small” detail – you should have the support of the right partner. Data driven professionals who think creatively – this is what I found at Twelve Legs Marketing!

Digital Project Coordinator
Hi, I’m Madelyn!
I am a sixth generation Colorado Springs native with an affinity for the great outdoors. During the summer, you can find me trekking the Rocky Mountains, paddle boarding in a snowmelt filled reservoir, or rediscovering historic Colorado Springs alongside my newly adopted long haired dachshund, Peewee. In the winter, you will find me snowboarding in Summit county nearly every weekend. Besides my love for Colorado, I also have a passion for helping businesses create and execute successful marketing campaigns.
Less than one year into my bachelor’s degree, I immediately knew that marketing was for me. I initially began my studies at Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business where I was connected with several NYC marketing professionals that introduced me to the different facets of their trade. Being able to combine my passions for brand aesthetics, design, and business strategy has propelled me into starting my career in digital marketing. Now, having experience in SEO, social media, and print, I am looking forward to expanding my marketing horizons alongside the experienced team that makes up Twelve Legs Marketing.
My priority is getting you results.
I spent over a decade in the U.S. Military with 2 deployments, one as a leader and one a follower in combat arms, which speaks to his dedication.
I earned 2 full-ride scholarships to Georgia Military College and the University of Georgia.
Companies like Bank of America and Mohawk Industries (the largest flooring manufacturer in the world) found value with my skillset over the years.
I am a Google Certified specialist who has managed hundreds of accounts and millions of dollars of ad spend across every major platform.
I bring to the table my knowledge and its application that is compounded with each vertical I acquire.
In my free time, I dabble in creating art, working out, building computers, and mining cryptocurrency.
If you are considering paid ads to help your business grow, give us a shout!
I am driven by the passion for challenges.
I come from the world of business management and I deeply believe in: The Work, The Network, The Open Mind. I built my career over the last 20+ years working for the Radio and Music industry, managing three radio stations for Emmis International, followed by lobbying for the Music Producers Rights in the European Parliament.
I am happy to be working with the exceptional team at Twelve Legs Marketing, bringing my knowledge of and experience in successful business development and financial management to the company’s assets.
In the modern marketing age, I find the challenge of introducing and adopting new technologies exciting! The solution, however, always goes hand-in-hand with a solid business and financial strategy. I believe in best-in-class business transforming ideas and solutions, and that is what we do.
You are invited to our world, let’s build the future together!
I had a hard time doing the math when I first heard ‘12 legs’ in ‘Twelve Legs Marketing’! How do 2 humans have 12 legs? Oh, add the precious puppies and there you have it. I had the pleasure of working previously with Rali Carter and found her energy, intelligence and motivation to be just what I needed – on a regular basis, so as the newest member of the Twelve Legs team, I am once again working with Rali and Jason – what joy!
I have the most experience on the team just because of my decades on this earth. Aside from over 30 years of sales and marketing experience, at the heart of it all, I am truly just a “connector”. It is what I do. It all just boils down to the broth in the bottom of the dog bowl – connecting people feeds you. It is life-changing and soul-providing, and essentially how every business and personal transaction begins (or should). After graduating from Purdue University, I loved working in the cosmetics industry, starting my own company, collecting spare change in banking, managing events for a world-renowned auto race and persisting in agency advertising, all of which contributed to helping companies grow and prosper. I am getting started on that task right now here at Twelve Legs Marketing!
I’ll call you – we will connect!
Rio & Oreo
Director & VP of Barketing
As Director and VP of Barketing, Oreo and Rio have the important job of entertaining our team and giving puppy kisses and tail wags when necessary. Both are Therapy Certified and volunteer among our community.
Director of Traditional Media Services
With more than 30 years of media buying experience, I have placed ads across all industries including transportation, non-profits, healthcare, real estate, home building, travel and tourism, finances, and education.
It should come as no surprise that state and local government is not new territory for me given my list of current and past clientele. They include the Colorado Springs Airport, Colorado Springs Chamber & EDC, Colorado Department of Transportation – T-Rex Project, and the Colorado Tourism Office. When I’m not getting the best price for my clients, I am a volunteer for USA Shooting and the National Training Center Junior Shooting Club.
I am fair but assiduous, demanding but realistic. I treat the media vendors as partners with whom I can achieve the set goals.
I hold them accountable and requires that they follow the process, provide timely information, and communicate beyond the initial buy so I can see my negotiations implemented properly in the market.
It all started in 2015...
That’s when, after a decade as a TV sports anchor and digital marketing whiz, respectively, Jason and Ralitsa Carter officially cut the ribbon on Twelve Legs Marketing.
In the beginning there were 12 legs (husband + wife + two dogs).
And, yada yada yada…
Within five years, our work has racked up honors like Media Strategist of the Year and Producer of the Year by the American Advertising Federation, Best of The Springs by The Gazette, multiple Murrow Awards, and an Emmy nomination.
Wait, did we just yada-yada the best part?

The Twelve Legs Dogma
In the spirit of full disclosure, there’s something we should tell you right up front. We love dogs. We all have dogs…they sometimes accompany us to the office…they’re simply a fundamental part of the Twelve Legs family.
Our fondness for pups even influences how we do business.
Some call them brand values, we like to think of it as our organizational dogma. Striving to emulate the qualities that make our canine companions so darn special, we are:
Smiles and tail wags…we love seeing you and we love working with you, always.
We approach every project, every partnership, every day…with unleashed ambition.
Instinctual, astute, and progressive, we mix well-trained experience with timely new tricks.
Always sniffing around for new things, an inquisitive spirit invigorates our work.
In business and in life, partnerships are meaningful—we stick by your side no matter what.
Authentic and well-tempered, we stand our solid ground refusing to be anything but ourselves.
