Our Origin Story.

Like great comic book characters, every company has an origin story. Here is ours.

Flying Horse Creative is a dream realized. It is born of my passion to create, inspire and to help small businesses succeed.

Years ago, my family had a small business that I was honored to help grow, and that experience never left me. I literally grew up with the business.

My Dad, standing proudly with his “Box Man” at the Grand Opening of my family business.

Back then marketing consisted of creating cheesy advertising flyers and copying them on ridiculously bright neon paper, then plastering them all over cars in the parking lot in hopes of drawing in the crowds.

The internet as we know it was new-ish then and my dad couldn’t foresee the need for a business website at that time. Boy, how things have changed.

Businesses practically don’t exist without one now.

My favorite part of small business life though, was the connections we made with our customers and other small business owners. We were a quirky little family, all working to succeed together.

I eventually took my own path, building a successful career as a photographer, journalist and eventually web developer / editor.

But the thought of once again owning my own business never left, and here we are today.

Flying Horse Creative is the culmination of all my work and passions so far and I look forward to watching it find its wings over time.

We will specialize in aerial photography, also known as drone photography, videography, website design, branding, digital content creation, content writing and business consulting.

My own Flying Horse, Festus, who keeps me humble and grounded, while I dream of flying.

What’s in a name?

The name, Flying Horse Creative, calls back to several important experiences in my life. The ‘Flying Horse’ recalls the Pegasus logo of the University of Central Florida, of which I am a proud Alumni. Charge On!

It also represents my dual passions for aviation and equestrian sports.

And, if I’m doing this right, the Creative part should be obvious. Fingers crossed.

Stay tuned for the next post where you meet me: the owner 🙂
