Nate Pagel, President and Founder

"Pagel is probably in contention for longest digital video resume ever, on the technical side starting with designing interactive CD-ROMs in 1993, and on the artistic side with a long career in media art and installations." — Liz Gannes, NewTeeVee

A new media artist and serial entrepreneur, Pagel has managed award-winning digital media, web and interactive marketing projects for Fortune 500 companies, including Apple, Microsoft, AMD, Schlumberger, Motorola as well as the legendary frogdesign -- designers of the original Mac. He was creative director at MongoMusic, acquired by Microsoft, and created interactive video and was one of the first employees at Human Code, acquired by Sapient. His experience includes software development, design, branding and advertising. In addition his artwork and video productions have been screened in 23 countries.

Pagel has been involved in video production, scripting and storyboarding, casting, directing, editing, post-production, mastering and encoding for numerous media outlets, online and offline. In 1994, he assisted in the creation of that year's SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas. He was producer and director of more than thirty award-winning web and interactive projects. First creating video clips for the Internet in 1996, Pagel's talent has been acknowledged by more than 60 industry awards, including Best of Show at the 2003 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and several of New Media Magazine's Invision Awards.

A sought-after speaker, Pagel participates in a multitude of industry trade shows and events.
