Patrick, Ryan, Reed, Lindsay
While telecommunications can have its glitches and challenges, we have found a way to keep it Simplified.
Which frees us up to watch Horror Movies.
We're ready to make your Internet and Phone service a lot less scary!
Knock on our door for a treat!
Lindsay brings nearly a decade of marketing experience to Simplified Communications. She's skilled in client engagement, social media, and marketing campaigns. Her favorite part of marketing is helping people discover the things they truly need--even if they didn't know what that product or service was called, or that it even existed!
Staying connected with clients and getting creative in marketing requires a certain level of fun and play. Lindsay might be found taking a much-needed computer screen break, playing tag in the office with her dog, Ivan. The desks are lined up to make a perfect path for tagging the office pup, with Reed and Patrick.
Lindsay's day-to-day life has changed quite a bit since last year, but not just because of the pandemic. She used to work for a large financial services company. Many of the strategies and tools that were used there have been retooled and applied to Simplified Communications. She loves the freedom of working in the telecom industry, which has so few rules and regulations compared to financial services. Tag wasn't really allowed at her previous office!
Simplified Communications isn't all fun and games, though. The telecom industry is extremely complex with the many options and myriad of ways to build solutions. Lindsay enjoys being able to work alongside industry experts who can brainstorm possibilities and help create excellent answers for clients.
Chief Executive Dog, Ivan is named after one of Lindsay's favorite beach bars on her favorite island, Jost Van Dyke, BVI.
The hardest part about living in lockdown is that Reed loves All The Food. A medium rare steak, pizza, Asian cuisine. His favorite--a hidden gem in the north Coon Rapids suburbs called Angkor, serving Chinese Cambodian. But lately, he is doing more cooking from home.
See Reed's Smokey Quarantine Chicken Legs Recipe below.
Reed has been working from home for over a month, and he is ready to get out of the house to go out to eat, see a movie, or go to a concert. He has high hopes for kayaking and camping in the future.
Reed's love for challenges and the outdoors makes the extreme Minnesota weather a delight. From hot to cold and back again, the landscape and wildlife are a beautiful backdrop for playing sports, writing music and spending time with his family.
You can imagine that a Minnesota guy who appreciates the extreme climate also enjoys the freedom and challenge that comes with being an independent telecom broker. Reed works fearlessly to find the best carrier and solutions for his clients.
Reed and his wife have 4 kids and 2 naughty rabbits, which keep them pretty busy most of the time, but Reed has been spending more time on his many hobbies and passions during quarantine. Reed is a musicphile, and after some extensive organization of his record collection, carefully compiled two imaginary Beatles double albums after “Let it Be,” using the best of their solo work from 1970-71. Music definitely helps relax the mind and energize the soul. Listen with us:

After a long morning of supporting customers, Ryan likes to order from either of his favorite restaurants: Teresa's or La Casita's. He recommends the Fajita Quesadilla.
When Ryan is not "geeking out" or enjoying amazing Mexican food, he likes to vacation to St. Louis, Missouri with his wife and son, Lucas. They cheer on the Cardinals baseball team and visit downtown.
Ryan has secrets! The best kept one is his hometown of Hopkins, Minnesota. It has your typical "small town" feel to it, with antique stores, a variety of restaurants and bars, and a local tattoo parlor. Hopkins has many great activities to participate in all within 10 minutes of the town. This small town background is part of Ryan's charm and care with Simplified Communications clients.
Patrick brings enthusiasm and experience to both the clients and staff of Simplified Communications. Keane started working in the telecom industry almost a decade ago, when he was recruited to work for Comcast. It was a challenging job for him, but he worked his way up to sales manager, with a decision to learn something new every day and focus on helping his customers.
This attitude served as a necessary foundation for starting Simplified Communications in 2014. The fast pace and ever-changing needs of telecom technology demand a desire to learn and evolve. Patrick is positioned to grow with customers’ needs and prepare them for success.
Is Patrick human?
While Patrick brings many superhuman traits to Simplified Communications, he still eats and has hobbies, too! His favorite burrito in Minneapolis is from Burrito Loco, but if he could only eat one food for the rest of his life it would be sushi. Part of his superhuman strength comes from breaking his leg as a baby when his dad forgot to close the baby gate (oops!). Patrick had to learn how to overcome (or avoid) obstacles from the beginning!
Patrick refuels by brainstorming at the office with the office dogs, saltwater spearfishing, and enjoying Minnesota life with his wife.
The entire team at Simplified Communications is excited to meet you and assist with your telecommunications needs.
