Kenny Barela

An integrated creative professional with over thirteen years of industry experience strengthening brands, leading creative teams, and developing and executing mighty ideas for clients of all shapes, sizes, colors, and flavors. I'm currently a Creative Director at The Marketing Arm in Los Angeles, CA.

Through creative problem solving, I discover key insights and apply solid executional skill to bring ideas to life with the goal of making a brand seen, heard, loved, and culturally relevant.

I grew up in Santa Fe, NM where art, culture, and green chile were part of everyday life. Summers were always spent outdoors camping, backpacking, and fly fishing—activities I'm still very passionate about. I claim to still have a few breakdancing skills and can probably be talked into trying to prove it, especially after I've had a few beers.
