After sharing a stage with him for almost a decade, the team at Sket Vignette is grieving the loss of our friend and partner, Trevor Moore. Trevor was an artist from start to finish. As an artist, he excelled in visual performance, writing sketch comedy and painting. Whether he was on stage or off, you could always see his artistry at work. As a partner, he not only brought his unique perspective and insight to each meeting but also challenged us to be better partners and business people. As a brother from another mother, he stood by us as we created this company together and showed up like family when needed most. As a friend, his absence leaves an irreplaceable void in our lives and in our hearts. He will forever be in our thoughts and hopefully someday again in person. read more
