A shared desire to work with good people, a passion for creating awesome content and an appreciation for a proper sazerac is the foundation this partnership was built on. Our combined experience in media, production, entrepreneurship and life in general make us a pretty dynamic team. We like to think that the key to our success is the freedom we have to approach projects and creative ideas differently. We don’t want to do things like everyone else - so we don’t! Every work day is different from next and it keeps us on our toes ... just how we like it!


We're Monica + Gerry... the duo that keeps this place running.

Meet the Partners Behind EC2

My journey this past decade has taken me from teaching high school English (true story) to working as the CEO of a multi-million dollar creative company and regularly appearing on live, national TV. It’s kind of a crazy story with some bonkers twists and turns, but it’s been the ride of a lifetime and I honestly believe our incredible team is just getting started! A wear a lot of hats around here (founder, CEO, producer, designer, on-air talent, brand ambassador etc.) but I couldn't do it all without the help of my partner and our awesome team! I’m a creative at my core, I nerd out over all things entrepreneurial, I love producing content that inspires people and I have some seriously big dreams for this company!

Basically showrunning, directing, producing and being awesome on a wide variety of successful unscripted series for Discovery, HGTV, ABC, TLC, Animal Planet, A&E, Nat Geo, DIY, etc. etc. etc. He wants to create your next hit TV Show, Branded Series, Commercial Spot, Documentary or any visually stunning, story-driven masterpiece you might have in mind.
