Meet the innovative, passionate, talented (should we go on?) leaders of the Blue Ivory Creative team.

Luke

Co-founder and CEO
luke@blueivorycreative.com

Luke’s done a little bit of everything in his short life. And we’re not kidding! He raced cars on national television, started companies, acted on national television and in motion pictures, sang the national anthem at major sports venues, assisted major bands while traveling on their international tours, and produced large events all before turning 21!

From a young age, Luke impressed business professionals with his entrepreneurial spirit and business abilities. Luke founded his first company when he was 12. The organization, a unique youth sports league, gained attention of local news agencies and corporate sponsors. Just two years after starting the league, Luke was given the chance to expand it throughout the southeast.

In the following years, Luke pursued a professional acting and music career. He was featured on an episode of “As the World Turns” on CBS, the movie “Blue Like Jazz”, and filmed a major supporting role in a movie with Tray Chaney of HBO’s The Wire, Tila Tequila of MTV, and Nick “little Hulk” Hogan.

Musically, Luke performed on television shows and enjoyed airplay on several radio stations in the southeast – including a top-40 radio station in Columbia, SC. He also co-produced a concert and creative event that sold over 1000 tickets. In 2012, Luke was asked to tour with Building 429, (the number one band in Christian music at the time according to Billboard) and helped handle their merchandising and fan relations.

While Luke has successfully pursued many unique things in life, it was always his skill for business and marketing that lead him to succeed – whether in music, acting, sports, marketing, or in a variety of more standard business sectors.

This same passion lead him to start Blue Ivory with his now-wife Kathryn. Their desire is to give other entrepreneurs resources that they wish they had in their past pursuits. Through Blue Ivory, the couple has opened the door for more small business owners to pursue their own passions. Luke’s vision for the company is to reach thousands of business owners and give them the tools they need to succeed.

Kathryn

Co-founder and CCO
kathryn@blueivorycreative.com

Kathryn Marr is the co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of Blue Ivory Creative. Growing up, she watched her family work hard every day to provide a great life for her, never taking time off or traveling outside of her home state of South Carolina. But Kathryn wanted something different. She knew from a young age that she wanted to explore the world, build her own future, and experience life with her children. Her own passion for entrepreneurship drives her to help other entrepreneurs to create their own lifestyle every single day.

Kathryn was involved in music from the early age of six. She played piano, flute, guitar and French horn and was extensively involved in the leadership of her middle and high school marching band. As a child, she spent hours deciding on the specific colors that would look best together in her coloring books; that passion and creativity translated into pursuing graphic design.

During her college career, Kathryn used her marketing knowledge to put together a benefit concert for a cancer patient, raising over $11,000 for his family. She was taught by leading professionals in the design industry; many of her professors were internationally published authors and her mentor helped develop the Adobe Illustrator software.

It was also in college that Kathryn was exposed to the idea of entrepreneurship and instantly fell in love with it. She invested time and money into personal development, attending international events with tens of thousands of like-minded people. At the age of 19, she led a national sales team of 30+ people, developing leadership and marketing skills. These experiences led her to found Blue Ivory Creative, with partner, Luke.

Kathryn brings a passion for entrepreneurship and creativity to the table and handles graphic design, web design and social media for her clients. She loves helping people pursue their dreams and be successful doing what they love to do, because that’s what she gets to do every single day.
