Our Team

Matt De Lisle


Matt joined the Interview Connections team in December of 2018 as a manager. After spending years as a director of recruiting in the trucking industry, he came over looking for a fresh start and a change of scenery. With the stress of watching all of his favorite teams lose in football and soccer, he enjoys the relaxation of playing video games, watching movies, or binging The Office. His goals include visiting the U.K., winning the lottery, and seeing all the dogs get rescued.

Nathan Peavey


Nathan found his way to Interview Connections after cultivating a strong addiction to caffeine while working at a cafe for eight years. He draws on his skills as a fiction writer to paint a compelling portrait about each of his clients when making their interview connections.

Mariana Chiulli


Mariana joined Interview Connections in August 2018, a year after graduating URI. While she studied psychology in college, writing and animals are her passion. Mariana loves learning about the clients, doing research, animals in bowties, and her large Italian family. Her dream is to one day become an animal cruelty officer while writing books on the side.

Emily Kelly


Emily joined Interview Connections as a Booking Agent in October 2018, five months after graduating from University of Massachusetts Dartmouth with a B.A. in Writing, Rhetoric, & Communications. She took dozens of writing classes in college, ranging anywhere from comedy writing to advanced rhetorical theory, but Emily found she truly shines as a fiction writer, and decided that she’ll write a book someday just to say she did it. She loves getting to know the diverse clients, using her creative writing skills to craft compelling pitches, her dog, Bear, who is a really good boy, and collecting an absurd amount of mugs that threaten to clock her in the head every time she opens the cabinet.

Bri Larson


Bri joined the Interview Connections team in February of 2019 first as a Podcast Show Researcher. Now she is a Podcast Booking Agent where she utilizes her creative skills and secret love of writing to craft pitches for clients. Her favorite things about the job are getting to know the clients and getting excited about what they specialize in. Originally from the great state of Minnesota, she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. In her spare time, you can find Bri in her art studio making fine art pottery, creating watercolor drawings or going hiking and camping in places far away from civilization.

Sarah Whitman


Sarah joined Interview Connections in May 2019 as a Podcast Booking Agent. She has a BS in Marine Biology and MS in Conservation Medicine. Before starting at Interview Connections, Sarah was pursuing a Ph.D. in Marine Science and Technology but began to question if that was truly her passion. She decided to step away from academia and join the Interview Connection team. When she’s not getting people booked on podcasts, Sarah spends her time with her horse, Pumpkin.

Riley Bradway


Riley joined the Interview Connections team in July 2019. A Connecticut River Valley native, he found his way to the Ocean State where he earned his B.S. in Digital Media Production from the New England Institute of Technology. He prides himself on his punctiliousness, verbosity, and ever-growing bank of useless facts. When he’s not booking clients, Riley enjoys making electronic music, spending time with his fiancée, exercising, and rooting for the Red Sox and Mets.

Sarah Mae


Sarah Mae joined Interview Connections in August 2019. She earned a B.A. in Film Studies as well as a B.A. in English Literature.
