My pursuit after art & creativity

Hello, my name is Kyle and I'm a Web Designer, Cinematographer, Video Director, and Photographer that has been working in the digital media & film space for 20+ years. I live in Nashville, TN with my wife and two daughters.

My story

Born and raised in Canton, OH, my artistic journey began with a passion for art and design. As a teenager, I explored the world of branding by designing for local youth groups, bands and friends’ businesses. At the age of sixteen, the captivating realm of web design quickly became my focus, revealing limitless opportunities for creative expression. As an avid learner, I began teaching myself different languages of web development including Flash Action Script (wow, remember Flash? Totally obsolete now!) HTML coding, CSS styling, PHP, etc. The web world changes constantly so there’s rarely a web project I have that isn’t teaching me something new to this day.

Fueled by a desire for excellence in all my interests, I pursued formal education at the renowned New York Institute of Photography, specializing in film photography. This transformative experience affirmed that I could turn my passion for art and creativity into a fulfilling career. Over the years, my interests turned to skills and those skills into paid work.

Web Design

I have created over 350 websites in the past twenty years. I have very extensive experience with Wordpress & Page Builders, Shopify, and WebFlow. Please don't ask me to build you a SquareSpace website, lol ;)

Video Directing / DP

I have directed thousands of events from 12+ multi camera music events, concert tours, large corporate events for Pfizer, Pepsi, Porsche, and more. As well as DP for commercials, music videos, corporate projects, etc.


I have shot countless photos for websites, album covers, headshots, and fashion shoots. I have also spent several years shooting product photography for our premium clothing brand, Freedom Company.

My experience is what has shaped my skill-set

I am incredibly grateful for the years of invaluable experience, as they have profoundly shaped my abilities as a creative professional. I have been blessed to work some truly wonderful people.


Trinity Broadcasting Network, Live Broadcast Director

Within my position, I assumed the crucial responsibilities of contributing to the production of live episodes, providing guidance to a team of skilled camera operators, and confidently directing the live TV show.

Faith Family Church, Production Director & Web Director

In my role, I assumed a multifaceted responsibility that encompassed skillfully managing a dynamic production team consisting of over 60 dedicated volunteers. My duties extended beyond mere leadership, as I actively engaged in equipment procurement, directed live multi-camera events, and undertook the critical task of training these passionate volunteers.

Moreover, I undertook the challenge of curating an aesthetically pleasing and seamless web presence. This diverse array of responsibilities demanded a profound commitment to excellence and a keen eye for detail.

Part Owner & Brand Manager for Freedom Company

My responsibilities included brand development, creative direction, web design, customer experience, email & sms campaigns, lifestyle & product photography, and team leadership.

Owner, Whittaker Media

I'm a solo-entrepenuer creating media solutions for businesses all over the country.


I found fulfillment in volunteering as a camera operator and video director at my local church and that became a stepping stone to employment at Trinity Broadcasting Network. I directed live TV shows, mastered video editing, and skillfully operated the Jib Camera during my 5 years at TBN.

Continuing to forge ahead, I accepted the role of Lead Web Designer at my church, overseeing their entire online presence and also leading an incredible team of over 60 volunteers in live production as Video Director. This 15 year career experience taught me more than can be summed up here. It nurtured my leadership skills and deepened my expertise in design, web development and video directing, while also equipping me to engineer and build control rooms.

In 2014, I embarked on a journey to further enhance my expertise, taking on jobs as a freelance Video Director for prominent arena music tours. Since then my portfolio has grown extensively and led me to go completely freelance as a solo entrepreneur. I moved to Nashville in 2018 and have directed for well-known artists and bands such as Hillsong, Elevation Worship, Kari Jobe, Cody Carnes, Jesus Culture, Sadie Robertson, We The Kingdom, and many others in the music industry. Additionally, I have diversified my career by working in the corporate sector as a Video Director and Production Manager, working with clients like Porsche, Pfizer, Sanofi, Pepsi, and others.  After over 20 years experience, I have the ability to troubleshoot most production needs during live events, I feel confident directing on any video switcher, I am well versed on all the professional camera packages and lenses, and feel very confident configuring and working with control room equipment.

Professionals used to say it’s not profitable to be a jack-of-all-trades. “Pick a craft and hone it” they say, but I disagree if you have an entrepreneurial spirit. I have spent the past 20+ years exploring and learning all aspects of media which now has given me the ability to see projects from a bigger, more holistic vantage point. Which, in turn, provides my clients with access to skills you would typically need to hire multiple agencies to acquire.

As my artistic journey progresses, I cherish every moment of service and learning experience in the realms of art and design. Driven by passion and commitment, I eagerly seek opportunities to contribute my creative talents, making a positive impact on the lives of others around me and continue to expand my creative horizons.
