Geovanni Cruz // Graphics Manager / Social Media Director / Remote Pilot In Command (FAA Certified)
Howdy or hello, depending on where you're from… I was born and raised in Amarillo and I’m a WTAMU graduate. I’ve always been drawn to the creative world by the video games I played as a kid, the awesomeness of electronic music, and the adventures I had as a kid. When I’m not creating, you can find me in one of the many virtual worlds of gaming, working on cars, or planning my next club adventure. Give us a call or shoot us an email and let’s discuss your social media game, design, or branding…I'm also an excellent drone pilot (sometimes I fly into nature…please don't tell my boss…just kidding about the nature part)
Gabe Gonzales // Production Assistant
Greetings! I'm a passionate creative soul who embarked on my journey with Creative Cannon as an intern during the onset of the pandemic and officially became a part of the team in July 2021.
My thirst for knowledge and love for creative media led me to pursue an Associate's degree in Mass Media at Amarillo College. Currently, I'm diligently working towards achieving my Bachelor's degree at WTAMU, where I'm honing my skills and finding my creative spirit.
Ever since I was old enough to walk, I've been an avid gamer and a devoted movie enthusiast, immersing myself in virtual worlds and captivating stories on a daily basis. Among all the fantastic films, the South Korean masterpiece “Parasite" holds a special place in my heart, igniting my admiration for storytelling and visual aesthetics.
While my interests once leaned toward graphic design during my early high school years, a transformative revelation occurred during my junior year. I discovered that the realm of photo/ videography allowed me to leverage my talents and allowed me to express boundless creativity behind the camera lens.
As I continue to explore and evolve as a creative professional, I'm thrilled to capture life's moments through a camera lens and translate them into captivating stories that resonate with audiences.
