Achieving the right fit for you and your company.


Our creative team is always up for something new.

You might wonder why the company is named Ugly Dog…

Ugly Dog Media is the brainchild of Dan Blacharski and his wife, Charoenkwan, aka Be, Vice President of Ugly Dog Media. The company is named in honor of Be’s affinity for “ugly” dogs.


Since the early 90’s, and well through the heady days of the “dotcom boom”, Dan has served clients across the globe, creating highly effective web content, brochures, ghosted articles, white papers, books, and much more. A gifted writer in her own right, Be Blacharski is well known in her native Thailand as an award winning author, poet, journalist, and translator. With such a talented center of gravity, it was inevitable they were going to bring more gifted professionals into their pull, which led to the formation of the dynamic firm we are today.


We've kept the attentiveness and accessibility of a home-based business, while our rapid expansion is a direct product of our solid, seasoned foundation, combined with exceptional new talent. With tremendous experience and the ability to create highly intelligent content, each member of our team is quite comfortable taking more than a few steps beyond the traditional media approach.
