Chronicles In Motion founder Cheri O’Neil knew as a kid growing up in Kalispell, Montana, that she wanted to be a news reporter, and by the time All The President’s Men came out in the movie theaters, she’d declared her major at the University of Oregon’s School of Journalism. Her first job out of college was at the Spokesman-Review in Washington state, where she covered ice hockey.
She moved to California and worked as a copy editor, metro reporter and award-winning features writer at The Modesto Bee. From there she was executive editor for the Tracy Press Co., where her staff was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in 2009. She was publisher of the Scotts Valley Press-Banner before she struck out on her own as a freelance writer and editor — and fell in love with video. She shoots with a JVC GY-HM150U camcorder and a Canon 70D DSLR, and is a member of the Bay Area Professional Videographers Association.
As a May 2014 graduate in the Entrepreneurship and Innovation masters program at Cogswell Polytechnical College, Cheri’s launched this video marketing startup, based in Santa Cruz, California, and serving the San Francisco Bay Area. With the help of her longtime cohort, Glenn Moore, she wants to help others to tell their stories using words and images.
Here is her About Me video.
Glenn’s journalism career goes back a few years, too, to Fresno State University and a degree in photojournalism. He started out as a staff photographer at the Turlock Journal and moved on to the Tracy Press, where he worked his way up to chief photographer.
Glenn has a journalist’s ability of being able to tell a story with words and images, so not only does he write, but he takes still photos and video. He’s won multiple awards for his news, sports, and features photos with the California Newspaper Publishers Association. Last year, a photo of a streaker interrupting a high school baseball game brought him a first-place award by the San Francisco Bay Area Press Photographers Association.
Glenn shoots video with a Canon Eos 5D MK III. As an avid hiker, he also has a portfolio of nature photography, which has been displayed in the gallery at the Grand Theatre in Tracy, California. He has two blogs — Through the Viewfinder and Snapshots.
