Bio: I am a fifth generation Texan and avid outdoorsman. Growing up in Goliad, the heart of South Texas, my life was built around the ranching and farming lifestyle. After earning a degree in Agricultural Engineering and Technology from Sam Houston State University, I searched for way to apply my knowledge and grow from that foundation. Which brought forth the birth of Bar MC Media.

Since then, I have captured action photography under Simply Photography by Meagan, studied techniques as a student at Texas A&M University, held the position of Editor-in-Chief for the AgriLeader Magazine, and I recently decided to also start pursuing videography as a new adventure with Brandon.

About us: Since 2009, the mission of U.S. LawShield remains unchanged. We believe in Preserving Freedom for Good™ by educating our 690,000 members in self-defense law, empowering them to handle critical, life-threatening situations with confidence, protecting them from potential injustices in the legal system after acts of self-defense; and challenging the status quo regarding the affordability of legal defense. Our higher purpose is to create a united community of responsible individuals who believe in liberty and the inalienable right of self-defense.
About us: We are a collective of artists, strategists, branding aficionados, developers, storytellers, and fierce firestarters. We make three demands on ourselves and our work at CAMPFIR3: Whatever we do has to be smart, tell a great story and it has to be beautiful. This means strategy must precede creativity, but it doesn’t mean that function is superior to form. And it has to tell a great story so people will want to tell it to other people. A campfire needs heat, oxygen and fuel and a brand needs strategy, a story and great design to stand out and be told over and over again.
