Sparkhouse

Orange County, California Area

A native of Orange County, Torrey founded his first startup as a high school sophomore, OC Film Productions, focused on dynamic visual real estate marketing. During film school at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, Torrey’s second company was born, OC Creative Media, where he refined his aptitude for storytelling through event videography and custom commercials. In 2010, the agency was rebranded as Sparkhouse Media (thesparkhouse.com), today an acclaimed and unstoppable force in high-concept, branded video production that creates impactful spots for big fish like Jacuzzi® and USAA®/NFL. As CEO, Torrey guides Sparkhouse Media with groundbreaking campaigns that have earned ADDY and TELLY awards and garnered nominations for Orange County Business Journal’s Excellence in Entrepreneurship three years running.

He’s a natural at networking, attributing the lion’s share of his success simply to “paying attention to people.” In his role as president of the nonprofit Ad 2 OC, Torrey mentors young advertising and design professionals during events that foster education, professional growth, and collaboration over competition. A serial entrepreneur, Torrey continues to push the boundaries of what it means to be a visual and digital pioneer. Fueled by a strong desire to pay it forward, Torrey has his hands in a wide range of pursuits — environmental, technological, medical, and charitable — that prevent him from being pigeonholed. At any given time, he may play the role of inventor, producer, or promoter, designing and developing projects he believes have the potential to change the world in their own way. As the success of his creative ventures continues to rise, Torrey has become a sought-after consultant and
