What is your role at Six Vertical?

I'm the video content creator. I take videos and pictures of the team and our partners looking wicked smart.

What got you interested in audio and video?

I made home movies with my friends when I was in middle school and high school and just loved it. I'm a pretty big film geek in general.

What are you looking forward to most about working with Six Vertical?

Six Vertical gave me my dream opportunity right out of school. I wanted a high-pace environment where I could learn a lot and build my creative portfolio. I can't wait to be a part of Six Vertical's growth and see where that takes all of us.

What skills are you looking forward to acquiring in the next six months?

I really want to hone in my videography skills and marketing know-how. I used to make home movies with my friends, and we always talk about going back and making them again with higher production value.

What is your career trajectory?

I really want to be a entrepreneur myself one day. The access I get to Joshua and Christopher has really given me insight into the lifestyle and demands of truly passionate entrepreneurs. 

Knowing what you do now, what is one piece of advice you would give your younger self?

I would tell myself to start learning to code as early as middle school.

What does Andrew Ellen look like in two years, and how will Six Vertical help you get there?

In two years from now Andrew Ellen will be an established content producer with a reputation for quality. My role at Six Vertical provides me with a wonderful opportunity to hone in on my craft and grow with an incredibly smart and aspirational team.
