Having worked in advertising and hypermedia for over ten years, Christopher has become an artist with a unique point of view. It has been said that he has one foot in the past, and one in the future, but he lives in the now — this defines who he is as a Creative Director. Christopher loves the diversity of work his job brings, but feels there is something special about having a camera in his hand. From cable news to independent film, major corporate initiatives to small business storytelling, Christopher loves connecting clients to their audience.
Derek was originally going to be an electrical engineer, but as he studied he found himself drawn to Photoshop. Derek graduated as a Graphic Designer from Brigham Young University-Idaho. He enjoys taking a website that is having problems and not looking its best, and making it functional and user friendly. Five years of experience in HTML & CSS helps move projects along swiftly. His interests also include the latest technology and hardware. When not working he loves brushing up on his drone flying skills with his two sons, or doting upon his little girl.

With skills in editing, cinematography and motion graphics, Nick brings a wide range of skills and creativity to the team.

Jon’s complete personal history is far longer than you care to read in a bio. Just know that he’s a native Nebraskan, a former Russian Linguist (seriously) in the United States Marine Corps, and a graduate of the University of Nebraska Omaha with a BS in Communications. He grew up a farm kid, but found a passion for video production sometime during the G.W. Bush years. He’s a ridiculous sports fan and an aspiring play-by-play announcer. He lives in Omaha with his amazingly talented and incredibly beautiful fiancé, Robyn, and her cat, Scratch. He is also a sportscaster.
Steven Buffalohead wasn’t hired based on his sweet last name or his magnificent man braid. Rather his eye for design. Steven’s fascination with art started at a young age. This passion followed him through his schooling, where he graduated from Creighton University with a double major in graphic design and studio art; this perfect combination made him a perfect addition to the Blu Giant team. When he isn’t creating amazing things you can find him enjoying life with his marvelous girlfriend Melissa and dog Riblet.
Jessica is a summa cum laude graduate with a degree in fine arts and communication. This background differentiates her from others in her field. She has the eye of an artist with the understanding of how and why people communicate. Working today as a contractor for Blu Giant, her career has spanned over 10 years bringing her national design awards, thousands of completed projects, and most importantly, each and every thrilled client reaction. She is mother to Emerson, who is her best and most enchanting conquest to date.
Robyn was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, but somehow ended up in Middle America. Frigid winters aside, Robyn now loves her adopted Midwestern city and proudly joined the Omaha is my Homaha Facebook group when that was still a thing. An avid public radio junkie, Robyn has run a public radio newsroom and reported for NPR, BBC, PRI, CBC and a lot of other places with three-to-four-letter names. Robyn is now a full-time freelance journalist, working as a contractor with Blu Giant, writing a book and trying to go back to South Africa every year.
With nearly 50 years experience creating HiFi musical sounds, Delmonico Nivico Stereophonic joined the team in 2012. With a unique blend of AM/FM radio and four speed record playing (including 78s!), Stereophonic adds a uncommon dynamic to our studio. Small in stature but large in amplification, Stereophonic’s passion for that warm tube driven sound makes visitors to our studio feel at home and relaxed before performing on camera. Despite secluded concrete design of our studio, Stereophonic has excelled at over-the-air radio. Stereophonic’s passions outside of work include having the timing belt on the record player re-clocked and horseback riding.
