This whole thing began in June 2017 when I flew from Austin to Cali to attend an event that had Gary Vaynerchuk featured as it’s keynote speaker. I had been following him and his Chief Heart Officer Claude Silver for some time and was just continually inspired. I opted in for a little post event meet and greet in which I got to meet Gary and talk to him for a couple minutes. I mentioned an idea my coworker, and fellow veteran, Donnell and I had about highlighting stories of successful veterans through raw unedited interviews. He gave me some amazing advice (that I failed to leverage). Flybys Media was born but didn’t quite take off. Pun intended - they always will be. Now a year later, I am going after some personal goals but the intent of Flybys Media is still very much alive and well. While I would love to help businesses through photography and videography — we both will always jump at the opportunities to tell a great stories of veteran entrepreneurs or organizations.
