Hi, I’m Dana. I’m an author, writer, designer, and video creator.
I’ve always been imaginative and artistic. As a kid, I loved to write poetry & sketch my friends’ yearbook pictures (always while I was in class, not paying attention to the teacher).
I did, however, pay close attention when it came to my creative writing assignments because I loved them. I was on the yearbook staff one year and learned to develop film & pictures. I spent a year in college majoring in graphic & commercial art (again taking photographs and developing them) before deciding to become a hairstylist.
After 20 years in the field of cosmetology, I attended and graduated from Fitness Institute International, Inc. School for Personal Training. I spent 10 years in the health & fitness industry and went on to become a freelance writer & published author.
I guess you could say I’ve had my hands in several projects over the years – but the one common denominator has always been creativity.
What Led to Custom Business Videos
I began this venture as a way to create animated videos of my “nuggets of wisdom.”
Producing 3-5 minute videos as a way to express some of the life lessons I’ve acquired over time was a fun project, but when I realized how this could be used to present a business or business owner in a fun and exciting new light, Custom Business Videos was born.
When I’m not working on my projects, I take Kajukenbo (a mixed-martial art consisting of Karate, Judo, Jujitsu, Kenpo and Kung Fu) – and I was recently promoted to yellow belt.
I’m an AVID reader. Since 2019 began, I’ve read 51 books and I’m nowhere near finished!
I also help my husband with projects around the house. If it isn’t pressure-washing the driveway or exterior of the home, it’s scrubbing floor tile and grout.
And…I enjoy cooking. I love to make healthy versions of delicious foods using clean ingredients.
So that’s me in a nutshell.
