The core of ParaCore

Our work may be digital, but it’s the real people behind the scenes that make all the difference. Their curiosity and creativity have propelled us from a one-man development shop to a top-notch digital marketing team in just a few years.

The people who make everything possible

    Adam Arkfeld

    President & Founder

    “And when you want something, all the world conspires in helping you achieve it.”

    I was on the keto diet for a minute so I order a double steak bowl, no rice, light pinto beans (now, not when on keto!), fajitas, cheese, guacamole, all 3 salsas, and no sour cream (sick!). Fills you up but doesn’t feel like a brick in your stomach.

    Agh! La Croix or Cold Brew!? I’d go with La Croix (coconut flavor) because I drink an average of 3 a day. I can grab cold brew in the morning on the way in, but La Croix is an absolute staple for me in the afternoon.

    Get up super early, like 4:00 am. Meditate, journal, do something I want to focus on for work, go to hot yoga, take the family to an activity in the morning, grab lunch on a patio, read while the kids are napping, go out to dinner, then go to bed before 10.

    I used to be a pretty big rap fan. I’ve been to 5 Lil Wayne concerts and they were all amazing and horrible at the same time. I think the love somehow stems from my jazz band roots in high school.

    Without the burrito! ;) Always shredded lettuce on the bottom of my bowl, it’s critical, along with lots and lots of green tabasco!

    Coconut La Croix! 100%

    A little retail therapy, I can literally shop for hours and hours... and come back a better person!

    I studied Arabic after visiting Egypt twice in one year... I love the language and would love to be fluent!

    “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.”

    Burrito bowl*
    Shredded lettuce on the bottom. Double brown rice. Black beans. Double veggies. Double meat (chicken or steak depending on what looks fresher) but I wait until Chipotle employee puts first spoon of meat into bowl before stating that I want double meat, this typically results in getting more meat overall. Pico de gallo. Corn. Cheese. Guacamole. Salad dressing on the side is a must.

    Cold brew coffee

    Take a private jet to Barcelona, spend the whole day on the beach and eat all the tapas in sight. Take a siesta at some point just to say I did.

    I played on the varsity chess team!

    I’m all about the low-carb lifestyle, so I order my Chipotle burrito as a salad! In my salad I get lettuce, no black beans or cilantro rice, grilled veggies, chicken, medium salsa, and guacamole!

    Endless Starbucks Matcha Green Tea Lattes with coconut milk!

    I’d take a private jet to Mammoth to go snowboarding for the day!

    My go-to order is a sofritas burrito bowl with brown rice, black beans, fajita veggies, lettuce, every type of salsa, and guacamole. Yum!

    Definitely coconut water!

    I would most likely sleep in for a bit, cook a nice breakfast, and play with my dog. The afternoon would be spent with friends either shopping or laying out by the pool. To end my perfect Saturday, I would get dressed up and go to one of my favorite restaurants for a fancy dinner.

    I love to cook and I hope to go to culinary school for fun in the future!

    Paid Media Specialist

    “One should not pursue goals that are easily achieved, one must develop an instinct for what one can just barely achieve through one's greatest efforts.” - Albert Einstein

    Double carnitas, no rice, no beans, roasted chili-corn salsa, fresh tomato salsa, guac, sour cream, and cheese (when I’m eating keto, when I’m not I have this with a tortilla on the side and an order of chips and guac).

    I am the weird person who actually loves to drink water but I guess if I had a chance to pick maybe Voss or Fiji water.

    I would wake up early workout, do some yoga, read, meditate, have some breakfast with my family, then go snowboarding or spending the day with my family and go out to a movie & dinner.

    One of my passions is understanding the psychology behind things and I almost pursued psych as my degree in college.

    ParaCore has been amazing. Their staff is extremely knowledgeable and professional. After trying to personally navigate Google Ad's for a couple of years I found it to be confusing and ever changing. Having a professional, knowledgeable company like ParaCore has increased the quality of leads and reduced our monthly spend. I highly recommend ParaCore.

    We have been working with ParaCore for just over 6 months. There are 4 things that really stand out with this organization responsiveness, communication, openness, and expertise. We came to them with several challenges and they really stepped up in a big way. They have always been available and provided regular updates. They are always very open about what they are seeing and what is happening. They are definitely experts in the paid search areas. They have no problem sharing exactly what they are doing. We are looking forward to a long term partnership.
