It was an unbelievable pleasure working with someone whose vision and personality grooved so well with our team’s. He helped us produce three videos—two in advance of the event and one post event. They helped convey the voice we wanted to get signups and then show those participants how much fun they really had.
Joe has done numerous projects for me, all related to text/font and layout. I can’t recommend him enough for any project along those lines and have sent multiple colleagues his way.
A good friend referred me to Joe when I needed to put together a promotional video for my Kickstarter campaign. From the outset, Joe was incredibly organized and timely with everything — he mapped out a plan to identify and communicate all of my key points easily and effectively, worked with my creative assets and shooting locations to make everything look and sound their best. He estimated the time it would take very accurately, and I felt we worked very efficiently. He’s also a super friendly, upbeat person to work with!

I was very happy with how my video turned out and our process for completing it. He is a music fan, and chose terrific background music to match the feel of the video. After my campaign was over, I got back in touch with Joe to re-cut the video for more general use, which he turned around very quickly and it looked just how I wanted. I highly recommend Stoltz Media!

The company where I work has used Stoltz Media for design work (buttons & images for our Facebook page, web banners), and also for product photography. Joe is a really great guy; easy to work with a fun attitude. He was able to understand our design aesthetic and made quick changes when necessary.



I never compromise quality for time and I give my clients realistic schedules that accommodate their lives. I strive for honest customer service, so contracts are only paid in full when the finished work is to your complete satisfaction.



About Me


I started my career making music videos, short films and concert posters with friends in Chicago. Before that I studied film and theater at ISU. Fast forward 5 years and I'm getting my masters degree in multi-media from Cal State - East Bay. I worked as a video producer for ed-tech startup, curious.com, for 3 years after that. While living in and around San Francisco, I was a house photographer for the Independent Theater. It was a lot of low-light photography in a fast-paced environment. So much fun.

Fast forward 2 kids later and we decide to head back to the Chicagoland to be near family. Enter Stoltz Media! We started this family-owned video & design agency in May of 2016 and couldn't be more excited. We are focusing our efforts on wedding videography and small business promotion. Our network extends from Chicago to Saint Louis and everywhere in between.
