Over a year ago I started doing what I love full time: Making videos and taking pictures. I started employing a few other camera(wo)men, so I obviously started looking at business a lot differently then I had when I was the employee of a big corporation based in a different state.
I quickly started wanting to support other local small businesses. I've always been a big fan of being in a strong community, and local businesses became my new "neighbors."
We are very happy to be a member of Local First Milwaukee!

A study commissioned by Local First MIlwaukee has found that if Milwaukee consumers shift 10% of their shopping and dining from national chains to local businesses, they would create $311 million in new economic activity in our local economy. That is because independent retailers re-spend about three times as much of each sales dollar locally than their chain competitors, resulting in more jobs and community benefits - keeping Milwaukee unique!
