Since moving from New York to Atlanta in 1998, Jeff developed a legal expertise in working with nonprofit organizations. Working with nonprofits has provided Jeff with great insight into organizations that are passionate about what they do, while at the same time managing to accomplish much with scarce resources. One matter that troubled Jeff though was how expensive it was for individuals to work with attorneys to start their nonprofits. So after more than a decade of honing his skills with 501(c)(3) organizations (Jeff has never had a 501(c)(3) application that he’s filed fail to gain approval from the IRS), Jeff decided that he could teach anyone passionate enough to start a 501(c)(3) how to create and gain approval from the IRS for their 501(c)(3). This company and the DIY video series are a result of that belief.
Jeff lives in Atlanta with his wife Shaunti, and their two children. Along with Shaunti, a best-selling author, Jeff has co-authored a couple of books, including the best-seller, For Men Only: A Straightforward Guide to the Inner Lives of Women.
Education: Harvard Law School, 1993.
Law Firm Experience: Dewey Ballantine, New York and Bird & Loechl, Atlanta
Eric has been an award-winning producer and director in the entertainment industry for more than twenty years. As a business owner for most of that period, he has had to deliver on time, on budget, and above expectations, every time.
With a depth and breadth of experience unusual in the industry, Eric has filmed a vast array of projects: national commercials for Fortune 500 clients, international documentaries, corporate films, and an independent short film. He has filmed in deserts and jungles, mountains and seas, from cam remotes, cranes, dollies, boats, airplanes, helicopters, speeding racecars and underwater camera housings. Eric pushes to the limit 35mm and 16mm film, HD, and all video formats.
Eric and his wife Lisa live in Atlanta with their three children. College-educated (with a Bachelor of Science in radio, television and film) and life-educated, Eric is one of the few directors ever to have fallen off a dog sled, been chased off the Braves’ outfield for playing catch, been bitten by a Copperhead, nearly been decapitated by a jet, and been dubbed an honorary Zulu by an African Chief.
