My favorite part of what we do is helping people! I take pride and really enjoy working with businesses to help them reach their goals through video and/or photography. I get to help drive more sales and people to their businesses, spread the word, and educate people about an awesome business using all the social platforms available to you. If you have no clue what type of video or photo project you would like to do, CALL ME! I love brainstorming and building ideas, and I hope I get the chance to brainstorm with you!

Being a videographer/photographer has created many new friendships. Those relationships and my family deserve a big thank you for the support and guidance they have given to me and Mackenzie.

It’s a simple tool… no threat of viruses and no dependency on wifi to be kept up to date on local stories. For our advertisers, print’s audience is controlled, intentional, and specific in a way that other advertising opportunities can’t be. And printed products are lasting, which means N2 publications remain on the coffee tables of residents for as long as they like.

 Why social media?

Everything and everyone is getting social media savvy. So to be the Stallion in the race we cover your social media, Facebook and Instagram .

Social events  

There is nothing better marketing strategy than face to face recognition.Our social events helps our sponsors  and residents to connect on a more personal level. and above all it's always fun to have fun where there is no exchange of business cards and no clip boards involved.

So we cover your whole Marketing : Social Media + Social Events + printed publication!
