One Stone was a formative part of my role as a leader, a creator and an empowered entrepreneur. I owe it to the organization for my confidence in starting my business, ShareLift, as well as my own freelance practice in the creative field. One Stone is a student-led non-profit (501c3) with the mission of empowering students to be better leaders and making the world a better place. When I was at the organization, I worked on various projects that addressed the needs of Wildland Firefighters, students affected by bullying, fundraising for the organization and many more. I served on the board of directors as the Vice Chair and as a founding member and the executive director of Two Birds Creative Studio. Two Birds is the revenue generating creative services arm of One Stone that provides ad-agency-caliber work for various businesses and non-profits around Boise and the treasure valley.
Bank of the Cascades
The Bank of the Cascades non-profit commercial was the first commercial video project that I experienced a love of production and the first project I served as the director and director of photography. Bonus, all the friends who I worked on this video are now in the professional video production world.
The YMCA/Explore Camp video was a promotion for the Explore Camp program which was geared at getting kids at risk of nutritionally related health problems thinking about healthy lifestyle habits. Nate Stranzl and I collaborated on the video to create something that captured the vibe at camp and conveyed to viewers the mission of the program.
I had the experience to make various fundraising videos for One Stone with the rest of the Two Birds teams. The “I + WE” concept was one of our strongest.
I never shy away from a silly video concept.
