Mike StipeI graduated from UNC Chapel Hill with degrees in Media Production and Music Performance. Since then, I’ve been creating videos and taking photos as a freelancer or working for different companies.

Currently, I work at ReverbNation as the Creative Video Manager where I head up all things video and photo related for the company. Previously, I worked at a local recording studio managing the video department.

As a freelancer I’ve become pretty versatile. Whether it’s planning and organizing a project from the start, managing all aspects of the production or post-production, or publishing and optimization content after it’s online – I’ve done it. I enjoy working with teams and collaborating on projects when I can.

Besides creating videos, I enjoy playing trumpet. I’ve recorded and played shows with lots of local artists and even some big names too: REM (Michael Stipe and Mike Mills), The Old Ceremony, The Love Language, Lost in the Trees, Big Star, the Dbs, Bombadil, American Aquarium, Josh Moore, Luego, and others. Other things I enjoy doing are cooking, working around the house, and playing with my dog Baker.
