Neil Amonson in one minute or less about himself
I spent my first four years out of high school in the Air Force Special Forces. I deployed to both Afghanistan and Iraq and finished my enlistment as a decorated combat veteran. My next move was from the east coast where I was raised out to Utah where I could more easily access the things that give me joy, spending time outside and in the air. Two years after moving to Utah I received my Bachelors of Science in Professional Aeronautics, as well as being an air traffic controller and commercial pilot.
Since then I have been working for GoPro assisting with marketing, content creation, and product testing. Along the way I have aligned myself with a few other companies who have similiar values to myself and we work together to help make their company great. I have also worked for Google as a contractor working with such projects as Google Glass and Project Loon. I enjoy being challenged, being part of a team, and working in space that allows a lot of creativity and freedom. I take pride in being able to tell a good story though images, weather that be still photos or video. I’m on here looking to expand my network and find other companies who value integrity, hard work, and creativity. Let’s make magic happen.
