Antonella Pisani is the founder and CEO of Dallas-based Eyeful Media, a digital marketing and consulting firm focused on performance marketing and digital strategy for mid-market companies.
Founded in 2017, the company has experienced exponential growth fueled exclusively by word-of-mouth referrals. As a result, Eyeful Media has ranked in the top 11% on the Inc. 5000 list for the past two years as one of the fastest-growing privately held companies in America, scaled at an 1178% growth rate. They ranked #17 in Dallas, #37 in Texas, and #38 in all Advertising & Marketing companies. Eyeful Media was also named to the 2022 Adweek list of fastest-growing agencies ranking number 13 on the list overall and number 5 in the West/Southwest. Eyeful Media has also been announced as a member of the Dallas 100 for 2022.
Antonella places a special emphasis on giving back to the community, giving back 5% of Eyeful Media’s profits to organizations such as Community Partners of Dallas, Dwell with Dignity, the Birthday Party Project, Michael J Fox Foundation, the Trevor Project, and The North Texas Food Bank. She serves as a member of The North Texas Food Bank Advisory Council and the Dwell with Dignity Board of Directors.
Also important to Antonella is Eyeful Media’s intellectually stimulating environment that allows for team members a balanced life and social responsibility. Eyeful Media brings expertise to their clients from a fully remote, 40% minority team with employees spanning 16 states and 23 cities. The company brings a fresh approach by hiring only experienced holistic marketers and eliminating layers often found in digital marketing agencies. This has helped the company scale quickly, as has quality work and technical expertise.
She is an avid traveler and photographer, with a particular focus on visiting places off the beaten path including Antarctica, Easter Island, Bhutan, and the Arctic. She is fluent in Spanish, and Portuguese, and speaks French and Italian well enough to get by when traveling. Her rescue pup, Riley, serves as the company’s “Chief Security Officer.”

Episode 73 features Eric Fulmer, VP of Operations & Strategic Growth at Capture Integration. We talk a lot about visual content, digital photography, and digital asset workflow especially around the large brands in the world and how they manage the large lift that is managing all of that content. Eric has a really cool story and excited for everyone to listen to his journey and some of the lessons he’s learned along the way.
Eric has been a pioneer in digital photography and digital asset workflow since the early 1990s when he joined Fuji’s fledgling Digital Imaging Division. At Fuji, he worked with major corporations and cultural institutions including The Smithsonian Institution and The Metropolitan Museum of Art as they adopted digital creative workflows. Later, Eric worked with leading photography studios at both Leaf and Phase One, pioneers in high resolution digital capture systems and image processing workflows. He then piloted DAM integrations at major government institutions including the US Air Force, Navy Visual News Service and Defense Intelligence Agency. Most recently, he played multiple roles in a startup SaaS platform vendor providing end-to-end creative production solutions for the world’s largest fashion and retail brands.
Eric has six children ranging in age from adults to toddler twins, which keep him and his wife of 27 years very busy! They also recently moved to a small “farmette” and now have a gaggle of ducks to care for. He is a voracious reader, social media addict, and political junkie during his rare moments of spare time.
EPISODE 15: CEO, Dear Media | Co-Host of The Skinny Confidential His and Her Podcast
ALSO AVAILABLE ON THESE PLATFORMS
Episode 15 features Michael Bosstick, CEO of Dear Media, a Podcast network primarily focused around female hosts and talent, and he is the Co-Host of the Skinny Confidential Him and Her Podcast. I was fortunate to interview his wife, Lauryn Evarts (@theskinnyconfidential) back in Episode 11 and really enjoyed getting a chance to speak with Michael in this episode and learning about his unique story.
Michael learned early on from his father that you have to work for what you want and after some early childhood jobs he figured out that he wanted to pave his own path and create opportunities for himself. Early after college Michael ventured out to fill a gap he found in corporate aircrafts with a business called JetBeds and has now grown that over the last 10 years to be the most successful company in the space.
Michael is now extremely involved in digital media and finding new and creative ways to build an online brand. We converse about many topics including business, the power of voice as a platform of the future, and many other intriguing insights.
I enjoyed one of Michael’s quotes where he says, “I spend 90% of my time focusing on solutions and 10% of the time looking at the problem”, and it’s no surprise he’s been successful with his optimistic mindset on business and how to scale effectively.
