Director of Planning & Project Development
Andrew’s filmmaking career took hold after interning with a Baltimore based film company and hasn’t looked back since. He jumps into any role needed on set in order to aid the narrative. He values collaboration over competition and authenticity over fabrication — although he certainly enjoys crafting a pretty image.
When he’s not filming, he can be found hiking with his bride Riley and their golden retriever Reyna.
Matt loves crafting images with light and camera movement to fit the story and pursue emotional connection for the viewer. With that comes camera gear, and that is another story altogether.
Brad is an accomplished visual artist providing skilled leadership and creative expertise to the design team. With a career in the creative services industry spanning nearly 20 years, Brad has had the fortune of serving a diverse range of clientele in areas of brand development, web, print, mobile, animation, live action art direction, and production design.
Drew was wearing trench coats and wild hair in the 80s and reading underground comics from the 60s for long as he can remember. In virtually every environment he’s always enjoyed doing his own thing.
His love for creative things led him to earning a New York state license to cut hair, the future irony of becoming an art school dropout, and eventually going to Bible college to be a “cool” youth pastor. He’d let the license expire, never becoming a youth pastor, but uses his education now making fun art assets for leading national churches like Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church and New Spring.
Drew has had the privilege of working on projects for Nintendo, Xbox, Microsoft, Wizards of the Coast, Waste Management, and more. His humorous cartoon style is well suited for kids’ ministries to mega corporations and everything in between.
In a sentence, this unusually gifted artist is a part-time yoga instructor and full-time illustrator, allowing him to be an avid tattoo collector. This is Drew.
Political & Public Policy Strategist
Michael O’Connell has been an active participant in Pennsylvania politics, working on presidential campaigns from Reagan in 1984 to Kasich in 2016, and for candidates at every level in between. He has worked for a wide range of corporate clients and advocacy groups, and several years ago led the fund-raising effort for the construction of the first Catholic seminary built from the ground up in North America in more than a generation.
Senior Communications Strategist
Photographer & Filmmaker
John is a photographer and filmmaker. He began his career in journalism, where he wrote for The New York Times, The Houston Chronicle, and The Odessa American. His passion for writing is matched by his obsession with image-making. He brings eight years of combined experience in journalism and the creative services industry. He is married to Meredith. They have a son, Noel, and are expecting a little girl.
