We’ve worked with a number of video makers over the years, but were searching for someone who could take our vision—and convey that into a video that evokes emotion. Then we found Tim. Along with his professionalism and outstanding skill set, he brings a unique artistry and gift for storytelling that is unmatched. We could not have been more pleased with our “Unique Stories” video. We could see its impact on the faces of our Annual Meeting attendees—where we first unveiled it. And the buzz continued, once we posted it on social media. The “My Unique Story Begins in Gahanna” is an important part of our branding—and a story that needs to be told. These individual stories help us convey to potential visitors and residents what makes Gahanna a unique place to work, live and play. Tim is a master storyteller and has a deep understanding of the importance of tapping human emotion in order to resonate with viewers. We look forward to working with him on future projects.

He has enthusiastic creative energy and works well with other crew members and clients. Not only is Tim a trustworthy person and associate, but his photographic skills and experience are head and shoulders above most others in our region. All in all, Tim is a seasoned professional on all fronts. I am looking forward to working with Tim on a more regular basis as he moves into his own business venture.”

"Tim is absolutely fantastic to work with on both film and photography projects. He brings a fresh perspective to a project and offers creative ideas/twists in order to get the most from photos and video footage. If we hit a snag during a shoot, Tim offers counsel on how to proceed in a very supportive and helpful manner. To top it off, he has a great sense of humor which makes working on any project with him extra enjoyable."
