Who We Are

Get to know what we stand for and learn about the creatives who make this agency run.

Our Story

Backslash Creative is a digital marketing agency based out of Oklahoma City. Founded as T&S Web Design in 2003, then renamed to T&S Online Marketing in 2014, we settled on our current identity in 2023.

We started off specializing in web design, added SEO fairly early on, and then expanded to offer services in branding, social media, email marketing, online video, strategy, and marketing automation.

While we're not a fit for everyone, our experience, relationship-focused attitude, and strategic approach to digital marketing help our clients succeed online.

Our Team

Tim Priebe

Pretty Cool Boss Man
aka CEO & Owner

I’m the ideas man. I have lost track of how much Superman memorabilia is in my office. I am a kinesthetic learner, which is news to me, but the toys on my desk agree. Don’t make me multi-task because it will end poorly.

Boldly going where few teenagers were going, I published a Star Trek magazine for several years in middle school and high school. Now I have book-writing fever and publish Edmond Business, but here I focus on creatively solving marketing problems.

Chief of Everything
aka Owner and House Mom

Hi, I’m Leann! I make sure things get done around here. I’ll be glad to take your money. Don’t give it to Tim, he’ll probably lose it. I don’t like cereal or socks. Also, eyes are gross, but necessary.

I’m the one who passes all your great ideas on to the rest of the team. Any Diet Coke Sonic bribes are welcome. I will keep the drink away from my three boys, Joshua, Jackson and Jacob.

Michela Owen

Wizard of Content
aka Marketing Strategist

Howdy! I'm the gal that turns your growth wishlist into a fully formed marketing plan. I also help craft the content you see on our websites and social media to accomplish the goals you have for your business.

When I'm not plucking away at the keyboard for work, I'm probably doing it for fun! I have logged an embarrassing amount of time playing The Sims, but every time I say I'm done I get pulled back in. I'm blissfully married to my best friend, Josiah, and we are the dutiful caretakers of our spoiled Yorkie, Killer.

Sara Payne

Sara Payne

Organizer of Success
aka Project Manager

My job is to ensure you, your team, and our team all get to the correct destination smoothly. My goal is for all of us to succeed. Initiating, planning, executing, monitoring, and finishing is the name of my game. Long story short, I'm here to help us all win.

I've gone from inner city skyscrapers to the Rockies' towering mountains. I have big dreams! I've been an avid dog lover all my life. Thanks to my boyfriend and his two kitty cats, I'm also a cat lover. Did I mention I love to cook as well?
