Company

THE ULTIMATE APPAREL COMPANY

From humble beginnings as a solo operation in Todd Curran’s guest room in 2009, Savage Apparel Company has grown into one of the top brands in the sport of Ultimate while expanding into other markets including Soccer, Disc Golf, Quidditch, Dodgeball, and Spikeball.
Now headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, Savage is proud to keep all of our production in-house, from design to printing and sewing. Even more noteworthy, in 2019 Savage unveiled the GreenLine, a new generation of fabric made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. Lightweight, sweat-wicking, antimicrobial, comfortable, sublimation-friendly, and rated UPF 50+, the GreenLine fabric represents Savage’s commitment to sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint. 
With 10 years in the customizable apparel business, Savage knows what it takes to make our customers happy — quality products, on-time delivery, easy ordering processes, and strong customer service. The Savage team has been trained to provide customers with all the information they need to make an informed decision when ordering activewear.

The Crew

*The following bios may or may not be 100% accurate

 

Todd Curran

President

Todd Curran started his journey in this world in 1984. Became President. The rest is history.

Dan Curran

VP of Production

Despite what he might tell you, Dan is a super cool dude. You can often find him walking around wearing a red and white striped sweater and a puffball-adorned hat in large crowds, trying his best to not be noticed. Unfortunately for him, he is too awesome to go unnoticed, and is in fact the paradigm of classy charisma. We all look to him for the next big name in table tennis, friendship bracelet patterns, and romance novel recommendations. But, man does he love secrets. When he isn't trying to blend in, you can find Dan mixing it up on the dance floor with moves that can only be described as "A Man met a Jellyfish at a Rave: creative body movements and soulful expression". In his down time...wait, what down time?

Dan Lee

VP of Sales

Dan's previous roles include agent, boss, alien, and actor. No joke. Dan's previous nicknames, wholly unassociated with the list of previous roles, include Giggles, Beautiful, Mcgee, and Little Bear. Dan has slowly been working on his plan to take over the world since watching his first Pinky and the Brain episode. The plans are nearing completion and fear rumbles through the office on a near hourly basis. Of course, that may just be his chuckling. If you want to know what this maniac's weakness is, I've got 2 words for you: Pizza Food.

Mary Curran

Sew/Fashion Manager

Aka, the Original, Mary is the prodigal daughter returned. The very first employee of Savage back during in its Charleston, SC days, Mary re-employed in 2017 equipped with "a new invigoration" -  that's what she calls the whip that keeps her team in line. She is the executor of all new concepts and fashions, and the squasher of any idiocy that this team dreams up. Word to the wise, don't say her name in the mirror more than 2 times. 

Austin Bartenstein

Sales Jedi

After his acting career came to a screeching halt in high school, Austin turned to the next weirdest thing he could find: the flatball. Fate led him to Mary Washington where his frisbee career also came to a screeching halt (they're good now, though!). Tired of all the high pitched noises surrounding his life and sudden stopping, he fled the country in search of calm and fluid movements. After 7 years in Tibet, he came back with extensive knowledge of the perfect Ultimate Jersey and the world's finest teas. Soon we'll all be wearing the newest craze in fashion, the teabag jersey.

Keys Pattie

Sales Pirate

Nothing happens without Keys' approval. Keys is the wizard behind the curtain, the man behind the myth, the wind beneath my wings, the fuel for our engine. The Keys to our ignition? Whatever, you get it. Keys once almost bought a pirate ship. Then he thought, "Pirates don't buy things." Keys now has a pirate ship. We're pretty sure he's also buried treasure around here somewhere. There'd be no other reason for all these pirates to suddenly be around.

Eugenia "Eug" Witherow

Sales Manager / Spartan-VII Master Chief Gmail Officer

Eug is a Sagittarius, known for “always hitting the mark,” her good sense of humor, and being honest and straightforward. You might not buy it, but we think that's right on the money. Eug loves adventures and trying new things, from going vegetarian/vegan to folk music festivals to beating the Halo 4 campaign on Legendary. Eug has conquered the gym and the art of pithy emails - what will she try next? 

Austyn Pedersen

"Handshakes" (Community Relations, Events, and Sales Support) 

Originally from New Orleans, Austyn has enough energy to start a car. His passions are talking too much, eating too much, and being from New Orleans. He enjoys wearing a hat that makes him look like Woody Harrelson. If you see him out playing ultimate or drawing in a corner, you are allowed to feed him from a distance. (pssst: New Orleans...yes, he's a Saints fan) 

Ariel Vogel

Sales Assistant / Dan's Hands' Resolution

Despite aggressively pursuing a career as the face of White Claw Hard Seltzer, Ariel has found herself at Savage (primarily for the free clothing). A recent graduate in English from the University of Richmond, Ariel fell in love with plastic discs and ultimate fashion while playing with her college team, the Richmond Redhots. Ariel is full of smiles, and has a collection of comfy-looking sweaters as well as the rare ability to pleasantly correct our grammar. Despite these traits, Ariel bears little resemblance to a librarian. She has asked us to inform you that she is a “BIG IPA girl,” “regular winner at Don’t Look Back’s Monday night trivia,” and - does this say “McRib sponsor”? What does that even mean?

Scott Searcy

Level 7 Sublimation Cleric

Scott came on in the summer of 2015 but left soon after in what we believe to be some sort of scientific and experimental surgery. He is now back at Savage with a scar reminiscent of the Mercedes-Benz logo the size of a small child on his torso. We expect that he is now half machine, although made of Legos instead of adamantium, as he just pumps out full subs non-stop.

Jess Cimicata

Graphic Designer

New Jersey bre(a)d artistic type composed mostly of glitter, following the legends of a sleeping Welsh king all the way to the mountains of Virginia. So far, no king, but a cool graphic design job is a pretty fair trade off. Hobbies include hiking, dreaming of different colors her hair could be, playing ultimate frisbee, making playlists, pretending it's the 80s, planning road trips, and collecting Hawaiian shirts. Her future plan to own one hundred flamingos is currently underway. She owns one flamingo. 

Jake Kottke

Graphic Designer

Meet Jake, the self appointed Slayer of Tortilla Chips. We all eagerly await his official appointment. He initially started his career path with the intention of becoming a baker, but quickly realized his passion was in the graphic design industry. When Jake is not catching Pokemon across the greater Richmond area, you can find him sipping on local brews, drooling over fancy cars and playing with his beauty of a dog, Lady Bird.

Ariel Schulz

Production 

 

 

Grace Rutkowski

Production Assistant/Order Fulfillment

Grace is a virtuoso at multi-tasking. She'll be teaching a master class at a local public library near you soon. When asked to write a bio blurb, she replied, "I'm in Sweden and I'm eating a Belgian waffle....ok, I'm on it." It wouldn't be a surprise if she weren't also simultaneously enjoying other hobbies like juggling and thinking of her cat, TT. Never not doing multiple things, she's tried to combine playing ultimate with basketball. Be on the lookout for Ultibasket soon....wait...

Ryan Kent

Production Assistant/Order Fulfillment

Ryan Kent claims to have slept for two years. He's awake now, thankfully. He is the microphone player for Gritter, Murdersome, and BLK LLC. He really likes Back To The Future and not running. There's hidden meaning in that previous statement, we're sure.

 

Nick Evans

Production Assistant/Order Fulfillment

Nick, a senior working towards a degree in Marketing at VCU, holds several world records. Yes, several. None of them are published or validated, but that doesn't diminish his pride or his sense of accomplishment. Challenge him to a game of Guess Who, I dare you. Since his record-breaking feats, he has dedicated his spare time to Ultimate. When not in classes or playing ultimate he's probably getting food. He's seeking yet another unpublished title to hold, so text in with your suggestions.

Angela Mclean

Art Production & Graphic Design Assistant

A Virginia Commonwealth University Arts Student in Craft/Material Studies, Angela loves to geek out about her favorite fandoms such as Marvel and DC Comics.  To her, there is no question that Donatello is the best Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, and tears will fall if you disagree- yours. Angela once wove her own super-blanket that glows in the dark and is busy crocheting everything in her spare time. 

Marge Herr

Production Assistant/Order Fulfillment

Before Marge, there was “big marge”. Although the origin story of that nickname is long gone, rumor has it the energy of big marge lives on in all of us. Small in stature, but big in spirit; Marge is a person who you can rely on. With their love of to-do lists, they even have a list of their dreams set as their phone screen background. The only thing larger than their dreams is their handmade earring collection. Be careful where you go, Marge will probably be right beside you, encouraging you every step.

Danny Durvin

Production Assistant/Order Fulfillment

In Memorium

No, these people aren't dead, they just left to pursue other goals. However, we still love them and felt they should appear here too. 

 

Savannah Younts

Is there anyone more SAVAGE than Sav? Good luck finding someone. This rad gal has got it all - charm, organization, and great hair. Originally from South Carolina, she has found herself exploring the U.S. and the rest of the world. Most might assume she's just full of wanderlust. But if rumor proves true, she's actually been hired by secret government agencies to prevent high-profile assassinations. You hear about the assassination of Brad Pitt? Didn't think so. Not only does she keep the SAVAGE art team organized and even dabble in some of the design herself, she also saves lives. If you ever get the chance to meet Savannah, don't be afraid of her lingering southern accent, she'll treat you right with some good ol hospitality....unless you cross her.

Mat Seibert

Not to be confused with a Two "T"ed Matt, Mat Seibert is our former Head of Art Production, now in a freelance art role as he pursues his lifelong goal to be the greatest mini-golfer in all of Chicago. His training regimen includes drinking Goose Island Greenline while listening to Run the Jewels and practicing his rap game with the local street youths. You'll note none of that is golf related. That's because Mat knows how to visualize success. If you ever need someone to talk podcasts, typography or "fashionable" sweaters, this little firecracker is the guy for you. From the archives of favorite quotes: "If you love Comic Sans, you know nothing about typography. If you hate Comic Sans, you know nothing about typography." -Simon Garfield

Chase Gunn

A Natural Light connoisseur in a jungle full of craft beer lovers, Chase enjoys taking time out of his day to enjoy the finer things in life. During his spare time he can often be found teaching new slang terms to the older generation in hopes of bridging the ever growing age gap. He is by far the least buns of the SAVAGE crew and the coolest employee to ever work at SAVAGE, besides Keys, of course.

Lillian Goldstein

Lillian was once asked, "What do you want to do tonight?" She exclaimed, "I DON'T KNOOOOOWWWW!!!!!" Her whole life is lived with just this type of passsion. She wears her dope sneakers with passion. She performs compelx mathematical equations with passion. She definitely produces shipping labels with mad passion. From snacks to shows to graphs to clothes, Lillian knows what's awesome and she'll be sure to tell you when something awesome is happening..."Guys, this is awesome!"

Connor Mitts

Connor is a disc golf course destroyer. Courses literally quiver at the sound of his name. You think that was an earthquake? Nope, that's just Connor teeing up to basket 1. A Colorado State University graduate, he spends his free time between mountain peaks and the local craft breweries. He'll be the guy at the brewery with the buttery voice regaling tales of disc golf glory: "Over the river, around the tree, between the low branches, and into the basket" might be his most commonly used phrase.

Steve Minnich

Steve Minnich picks things up and puts them down. Sometimes it's boxes, sometimes it's people. A quidditch legend, Steve has been playing longer than muggles knew about the sport. Rumor has it he's been working on a prototype of a flying broom, but only so players can finally turn "so do you fly?" into a talking point.

Robert Goode

You may know Robert from his modeling career with SAVAGE. His ability to wear clothes, talk about clothes, and smile lovingly into the camera is uncanny. It's unbelieveable that he hasn't been picked up by Hollywood executives yet. Contrary to the above statement, he did not move to the west coast to begin his modeling career. He remains SAVAGE-loyal. Robert is one of those guys that truly relishes the simple things in life, like breakfast. He really likes breakfast...with relish.

Weston Barselj

Graphic Designer

The Vaguely Invisible Man™. A perspiring artist. Often mistaken for a vampire. Owns six lint rollers and switches between them. Used to be around 5’11”, now confidently checks in at 6’ (with hair). A real dog’s man.

*Editor’s note. The length of this biography reflects Weston’s highly talkative nature. 

Robbie Pratt

Sales 

Welcome to the life of Robbie, prepare to be taken on a roller coaster of replication. He's yet another Mary Washington University grad to join the ranks of Savage staff and yet another ultimate player with unbridled enthusiasm for circular plastic.  He's like the little-brother clone of some other guy in the office. Actually, we'll probably start calling him Dolly. It'd be better than the nickname he got in college that no one ever used - Roddy. Good one, guys. Good one. 

Ava Nelson

Sr. Graphic Designer

Want to meet someone who really is the bee's knees? Well our graphic designer, Ava, is just that. When not brewing, birding, baking, or braving the dragon-infested depths of the internet, this bird-brained barista can be found drawing up a menagerie of jerseys for viewing and wearing pleasure.  Ava can otherwise be found dressing up for the next Renaissance Faire, reading every YA fantasy novel she can get her hands on, and adding new hats to her cool hat collection. #featherorbust. To get her jumping: Avicii, Bitter Ruin, and Caravan Palace. Yep, we know, she's as hip as they come.

Masako Yamaguchi

Sew Tech/Fashion Assistant

Masko is the most world famous among the Savage staff, and with good reason. Maybe it's her independently designed and created line of clothing, her fierce hair, and her exploding Twitch following. Or, maybe it's her previous career as the primary model for Glamour Shots. We all miss Glamour Shots.
