Desire Mapp

Objective

I would love to partner with you and your small business with the purposes of creating a video promotion commercial that advertises your business and the services that it provides. One of my favorite types of videos to create is tributes. Whether its for birthdays, anniversaries, Mother's Day or Father's Day I really enjoy creating these special types of pieces that you and your loved ones will have to enjoy for many years to come.

Why Desire' ???

I've always had a strong desire to express myself creatively.   I bought my first Mac Book Pro in 2005 because I thought that I could create some cool things. I mainly bought it because they had a cool ad campaign back then with "I'm a Mac and I'm a PC".  Turns out I never used the laptop for anything creatively other than getting the pictures off my camera.  The creative juices really begin to shape into something substantial many years later when I saw an area within my community that I thought could use a little punching up.  Someone gave me a chance to create a video promotion, and the rest (as they say), is history.

The last four years I've spent studying my craft and working to be better at it and learning new techniques and skills everyday. I truly enjoy creating something from nothing, and being inspired by what I see or an idea that someone wants visualized.  I'm dedicated to what I do.  I'm a troubleshooter by trade and a hard worker based on my experience in the corporate world. I know that I can be an asset to any business owner who desires to create a visual representation of what their company is all about.  

I enjoy working with different types of business owners and collaborating to create something that is truly unique and that they can be proud of.
