ONCE UPON A TIME
While 20Degrees Media (as a marketing agency) is young and still growing, this arena is nothing new to me.
I worked for Vail Resorts for three years in the Marketing Research department before taking an internship with the Photography department. After I graduated from college in 2004 and fulfilled those internship hours at Vail Resorts, I became an independent photographer.
For 14 years after that, I photographed 125+ weddings, 7+ sports companies, too many events to count, and commercial work. But then, my husband and I moved to California.
After we moved, I had to take a break from being outside because of intense allergies. Although I was devastated by this (I'm always outside), my one-year search for solutions taught me a lot about health, wellness, and sports. We moved back to Evergreen, Colorado, but I had to rethink my life outdoors and how much more there was to understand about this culture.
This was my light bulb moment. I became fascinated with understanding the granular aspects of online marketing campaigns because I appreciated the granular aspects of what living life outdoors could mean. I combined my marketing and photography degree with my love for storytelling — and transitioned into personal branding photography. This was the perfect fit because it combined my talents for visual storytelling, commercial marketing, and strategy into a singular purpose.
Now, I'm jumping back to what I know — the outdoors, health, wellness, my local community, and cultivating connections. I've built a team of people with diverse talents who are passionate about using their gifts to elevate people and encourage healthy living.
Our whole team is also passionate about diversity and representation, and we believe having more voices at the table is crucial for professional success and personal abundance.
As someone who has always loved snowflakes, I noticed the journey of a snowflake is much like the journey of an individual and a business. Each snowflake is perfect because of its distinct elements. No two are alike. And all have experienced a unique journey to take a shape of their own.
Snowflakes are also a reminder of our ephemeral nature. We're here on earth for just a moment, but what we do matters and leaves a mark for generations. We impact our clients, who will impact theirs.
And since 20 degrees is the temperature when snowflakes become “the perfect snowflake,” I came up with the name 20Degrees Media to represent that we play to each business’s strength — and that’s what makes them perfect already.
In this fast-paced digital world, it’s more important than ever to find professionals you can trust to elevate your business online.
