Dani Hart
Dani, a South Bay native, earned her B.S. degree in Child Development and M.S.Ed in Deaf Education and has taught many years at John Tracy Clinic in Los Angeles. Dani always had an eye for creative design and decor, leading her to take online courses in design and web for fun; which landed her at Impact Production. She spends most of her free time paddling along the Pacific Ocean, lifting tractor tires at her local gym, and taking daily walks with her new Chocolate Lab puppy, Koa.
Brian Muller
Equally adept with a calculator as an X-acto knife, Bryan is a man with many talents. Trading in his suit and tie to join to Impact team in 2009, Bryan is Impact’s superstar bookkeeper and the resident grill master at our potluck lunches. This Tampa native spends his free time off the beautiful beaches of the Pacific Ocean surfing and keeping tabs on his home team, the Tampa Bay Rays.

A native Angeleno, Joni recently spent a few years north of Redondo Beach studying Art and Public Health at UC Berkeley.

Impact has provided full service work and is truly a company that never says “no.” They work tirelessly to get the work done, on time and in perfect order. Impact is fully aware of their expertise and capacity and on the rare occasion when something falls outside of their in-house capacity, they communicate the alternatives and go outside the scope to ensure completion… A review of their work and satisfied clients will reveal a great local company with incredible production capacity. Creative, honest, hard working, upbeat and professional are all descriptive of my experiences working with Impact Production.
