Spence started building things on the internet in the late 90s. Since those days, he’s gone on to learn programming in art school (BFA) and strategy in design school (M. Des). With his particular penchant for foresight and a desire to position companies to take advantage of what is yet to come, he has helped both strategically reposition established brands, and launch challenger brands that disrupt categories.
His knowledge of technology, branding and his ability to conceive of new customer experiences, combined with his quick mind and ability to see patterns that many miss, make him a welcome guest in any boardroom or c-suite that he’s been in. He has authored academic papers, taught in community colleges, and is often invited to share a perspective on any and all things related to digital culture and consumer behaviours.
Spence started his career, quite literally, as an artist. His film and video work has been shown at venues from Vancouver to Bulgaria. He also worked at (wait for it)… an art gallery, where he could frequently be found DJing at the opening night shows (fun fact: he was part of a duo called DJ Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen).
These days, he thrives off of the focus that a client’s challenge brings. At his most aspirational moments, Spence likes to think of himself as the executive producer of art, leading the A&S team to find new and innovative ways of working, and on occasion, even paying them to make, well, art.
He’s maintained his relationship to the arts and culture sector not just through the work that Art & Science does but also frequenting cultural events and sitting on boards to provide his expertise to organizations. Most recently he was the board chair for the Toronto Fringe Festival.
In his spare time Spence enjoys learning new programming frameworks and languages, reviewing the latest trends in computer science and reading texts on behavioural economics, sociology and anthropology (he wears the mantle of “geek” proudly).
Adam got his start in digital marketing in 2006 building pay-per-click accounts in Google. He launched his own agency, Maple North, in 2010 eventually merging his business with Spencer’s in August of 2013. Adam was one of the beta adopters of Google Analytics, once ingeniously spammed keywords in the footer of a website using the same background colour in his early SEO days, and has managed over $10M in ad spend across numerous channels and platforms.
Adam is especially proud of the industry awards his team has earned including three Canadian Search Awards in 2021, where Art & Science was also named “Best PPC Agency”.
A&S is also ranked top PPC Agency and Top Digital Advertising Agency in Canada, an honour held for the last three consecutive years on Clutch.co.
As a childhood cancer survivor, Adam continues to speak and volunteer with the Terry Fox Foundation and Camp Oochigeas. Adam sits on the board of the St. George’s Society, Toronto’s oldest charity whose work continues to support educational scholarships, youth homelesness and feeding those less fortunate.
Adam is an avid traveler and often combines travel with half and full distance marathon running. His favourite marathon to date was the Berlin Marathon where he ran with his beautiful wife, Kelly, on their honeymoon. Adam loves to cook and during the COVID-19 pandemic started a cooking class for the A&S family. His latest culinary adventure includes his outdoor wood-fired oven, from which he regularly turns out Neapolitan-style pizzas and focaccia bread.
Dave joined Art & Science in 2019, bringing his 20+ years of experience in integrated communications. Brand, digital, advertising, web, social — he’s done it all.

One of his achievements there was helping to create the highly-successful and always over-applied to Digital Strategy & Creative course in 2016 — not bad for an account person!
He’s also been a Big Brother twice, to great kids who have now both gone on to do things they never dreamt possible.
Dave loves spending time with his family, is an avid reader of fiction and has a mind-numbing obsession with sports. He also spends way too much time playing strategic board games — and he will happily accept any challenge!

Peter has worked across multiple sectors including healthcare, broadcasting, energy, and advertising. He joined Art & Science in 2019 as a full-stack developer, bringing his extensive experience to the agency: 20+ years working with technical disciplines including web and mobile development and information technology, and 10+ years as lead developer on web development projects.
Today, he is responsible for leading the members of the dev team and providing technical direction for the wide variety of projects we undertake.
An avid lover of nature and the wilderness, Peter has been known to put aside the tech, and disappear for a few days of back-country camping. He is also a passionate yacht racer and has competed in numerous ocean races including the Newport-Bermuda, Marblehead-Halifax, Caribbean 600, and double-handed from Halifax to St. Pierre & Miquelon.
Being the father of twins — a boy and a girl — keeps Peter pretty busy too. It also keeps him grounded, and laughing all day.
