Braden DragomirMake Hay Media
"I never realized how much of my life was driven by the pursuit of a great story. From burying my head in the adventures of ‘The Famous Five” to the unending drama of playing NCAA soccer, everything had a narrative. That pursuit of overcoming conflict and the journey took me all over several countries and through an almost decade long career in broadcast journalism.
In the thousands of stories and tens-of-thousands of interviews I found my passion is connecting with people, learning what moves them, and sharing that with the world. I always know that I’m lucky to make my living with a camera and meeting amazing people. To me, there’s nothing more exciting sharing people’s passions and knowledge through the lens of my camera."
