learn more about our team

We can sum up our Agency Media team with one sentence: creative marketers motivated by data-driven results.

Our team is a collection of video producers, inspiring creatives, technical savvy experts, learners, educators, and moral compass believers. Our goal is to deliver value to your business that provides you with the tools and understanding of how to get the most out of your digital marketing

Meet the team who helps to make up the foundation of our business and who you will be working with, step by step, as we discover and create a solution that satisfies your wants and needs.

What’s in a name

Part digital agency, part media production company, Agency Media brings two halves of the industry together to form a one-stop shop for all our clients.

In 2013, Agency Media started out as a video production agency that wanted to make great videos for businesses. We quickly realized that video gets the best ROI when it’s paired with a holistic digital marketing strategy.

Since then, we’ve grown into a diverse collection of people and skills, yet all with one thing in common: a commitment to giving brands real opportunity in the digital space through quality and scalable content.


In order to be taken seriously, your business can’t have content that looks like it was slapped together without thought. We hold a sense of ownership over everything we shoot, design, write, produce, or create, pushing us to make content that your team and ours can be proud of.


The Agency office is a bustle of creative interaction, brainstorms, and collaborative ideas. We thrive off stretching ourselves to come up with innovative ideas and looking at projects from new angles. Creativity is what makes our services stand out.


No business can survive on just one piece of content. The only way to fight for space in the digital age is by spreading your message out with a lot of work. We create content that is easily scalable and adaptable to multiple mediums so that your message is never missed by your audience.
