Jim Mejias

How do your colleagues describe you?

Jim has great energy and is a wonderful addition to the team.

Why do you do what you do?

I love hearing stories about how someone got their a-ha moment, or how they caught lightning in a bottle for their business. You learn so much and gain a new perspective and appreciation for what it means to strike out on your own. I find assisting in that process very fulfilling!

With experience in commercial filming, live streaming and tourism marketing; he has a passion for finding a story to tell and always has something to say.
