Who We Are



 

Mike Tesoriero

Publisher, entrepreneur, dad, volunteer, coach, shooter of photography and basketballs, dog walker, and keeper of the BBQ.

A born and raised New Yorker and Yankees fan, Mike moved to Texas in 2004 to further his career and enjoy the high quality of life characteristic of the Southlake area. Community pride took hold, and soon thereafter he left his career behind to found Southlake Style in 2005. Mike enjoys working alongside his wife, and the community supporters and activists who make the city, school and Southlake Style tick. 


Audrey Sellers

Editor, wife, mom, Mexican-food aficionado, storyteller.

As Southlake Style’s editor, Audrey oversees the magazine’s print and digital content. She polished her writing chops working in B2B journalism for over a decade, crafting copy good enough to win some awards. When her fingers aren’t flying on her Mac, Audrey’s busy not relaxing with her favorite Dragons: her husband (who’s a Carroll coach) and their two children. Have a great story idea? She’d love to hear it.



 Pamela Hammonds

Editor, wife, mom, dog-lover, baker, gardener, reader

Not long after the birth of her first child, Pamela set aside a career in marketing for the ever-adventurous and often unpredictable gig as a freelance writer and editor. As a result, she’s published hundreds of articles and features in magazines and newspapers. Now, as Flower Mound Style’seditor, Pamela manages the magazine’s print and digital content. When she’s not crafting stories about others, she’s always up for a movie or a trip to the flea market. A Midwesterner by birth and Southerner by choice, Pamela and her Texas-born husband have three children. If you have an idea for a story, she’s excited to hear about it!


Nicole Tesoriero

Advertising Director, entrepreneur, mom, volunteer, connector, family activities coordinator, golden retriever lover, stretcher of goals and yoga poses.

Raised in and attended college in Western New York, as a small town girl Nicole took the big leap to work in advertising in New York City for six years. She then opted for the sunny weather and bright disposition of Southlake as the place to start and raise her family in 2004. A regular atop the list of national sales award winners at Verizon, Nicole became the backbone of her own company in 2005 and never looked back. She enjoys taking a consultative approach to local marketing for both small and large businesses alike.


Bruce Sons

Creative Director, musician, big brother, UNT graduate, husband and hobbyist.

Bruce truly wears many hats! A 17-year veteran of publication design, he brings his “unique” perspective to the pages of Southlake Style. With family ties to aviation, Bruce admits that the aviation bug bit him early. You may catch him at the local flying field at lunch or straightening his latest model on the shelf in his office. One thing for sure, he has an eye for detail, and enjoys getting to know Southlake one pixel at a time.


  Digger Hayes

Advertising & marketing art director, geek, gamer, level 65 Sith marauder

At heart, Digger is an artist, creator and geek. Professionally, this comes through as an art director and designer with over nine years of experience across multiple fields. Originally from a small town in north Georgia, he traveled the country before finally settling in North Texas with his adorably geeky wife, Liz, two amazing dogs and one jerk of a cat (okay he’s not that bad). On beautiful, sunny weekends, Dig and Liz spend their time inside playing video games, watching movies, and binge-watching TV shows (with the windows open, of course). On occasion they have been known to interact with other humans, usually when gaming, tacos or wine is involved.


Dia Moraru

Advertising and Marketing Coordinator, wife, proud mom, fashionista, blogger, cat lover.

Dia moved to Texas from Moldova five years ago to pursue the American dream. She loves to travel and takes pride in having visited the most popular destinations in the U.S. (She especially loves the rainy climate of San Francisco.) She is pursuing her MBA degree at Southern Methodist University and when she’s not working or studying, she’s at home enjoying her energetic toddler.



Ashley Pape

Office manager, wife, mother of four Dragons, Aggie.
Ashley is the ultimate office orchestrator—or rather, juggler. She keeps many balls in the air without missing a beat, providing enthusiastic support for the entire team. Apart from juggling her many responsibilities as office manager, Ashley is a champion for her four Dragons. She can masterfully maneuver her minivan with custom plates from game to game and not miss a moment of the action. She’s fueled by yoga and delicious breakfast foods.



Sparky Tesoriero

Facilities Manager, motivational guru, therapist, teammate, and fetcher of…affection.

An alumnus of DFW Metro Golden Retriever Rescue, Sparky adopted the Tesorieros and the Southlake Style team in 2010. As the lone office mascot, Sparky never misses a chance to greet office staff and visitors, team meetings, or his daily naps. Sparky’s devotion to his craft has earned him multiple Canine Employee of the Month awards.
