Blame Hollywood, California. That’s where it all started. We met in California. Exactly how it all happened is a well-kept secret only known by a select few, The story involves margaritas, living in a rented car for a week and shoveling dirt to kick off a successful video production career. There is enough material here for a feature-length film. The condensed version: we met and soon got married.
At the time music videos were the latest rage and Joe often jokes about having worked on many big hair band rock videos. Believe it or not, back in those day Joe sported long hair too.
We created original television programming for national cable distribution including a game show, a talent show, aerobics show, and a live music and model competition and had a blast.
In 1997 it was time to pack everything we owned, including our two kids, and return to Atlanta, U.S.A. We started a full-service, digital production studio working with video production and multimedia. The company grew to include a studio, editing suite, audio production, 12 employees and much more. We worked with some awesome clients, did some great productions and learned a lot during this time.
In 2001 we decided to take a different path, slow down, and get back to basics. We wanted to work creatively and cooperatively with our clients, have fun working but still have time to smell the roses and spend time with family. We launched Talentino Media, a media boutique for small and medium-sized businesses, left the stressful big city life and moved to the beautiful coast of Georgia. Since then, we have never looked back.
Joe actually started out wanting to be an astronaut, but astronauts couldn’t wear glasses – so instead he decided to become a photographer. He studied still photography at the Southeastern Center for the Photographic Arts and later moved on to video production.
Joe still loves shooting stills and video, but you will often see him in front of the camera as the show host or reporter. You will also see Joe visiting festivals and other events on the coast in search of an interesting story.
Joe claims to be an “enormous source of useless knowledge”, which really comes in handy when you play Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit. In his free time he likes to watch movies or learn new Internet marketing strategies.
Joe has a wide variety of interests and hobbies. But he really enjoys spending time with friends and family, playing on the beach, exploring the coast by kayak or bicycle, playing in the dirt in his garden, cooking food for friends or family, or just hanging out on Facebook talking to readers.

Susanne started out as a writer, journalist and editor for print publications in entertainment and travel. She has worked with video and multimedia production for many years, but her passion is story-telling. She participated in the screenwriting for film “Sources” through the European Film Program when she lived overseas. ”I just enjoy telling stories both in pictures and words”, explains Susanne.
Since Joe now works in front of the camera, we will often find her behind the camera and she also edits video. In her free time she enjoys working out, spending time with friends and family, exploring the coast, trying out a new cocktail recipe, playing with her cats, chatting on twitter with readers or surfing the internet finding interesting and fun things to do on the coast.
