Linda "Pinky" Brown
Linda Brown has a real passion for Music and Motorcycles. Linda grew up in low income housing wanting to make the world a better place for others. Her love for people led her to a career as a Social Worker. When Linda was not working she was using her skills to help multiple organizations in her community. The color pink represents the passion in Linda’s heart for her community and she was given the nick name “Pinky”.
On September 1st, 2015, Linda was hit by a distracted driver while riding her Harley-Davidson V-Rod. The possibility of Pinky losing her leg was a real concern. During her long hospital stay Pinky played her guitar to cheer up those around her. Music is like medicine and it not only helped those around her but it helped Linda too. While in the hospital Pinky started the “Don’t Drive Distracted-I Pinky Swear Campaign”. The Motorcycle community helped to spread the word and before she knew it she had a worldwide campaign. PINKY’s bike is: “The Pink Storm” and her plate reads “Pink V”.

Our talented, Award Winning Filmmaker,
Hey, My Name’s Dylan! I grew up loving cameras, photography, and mostly videos! Basically, I’m not myself without a camera in my hands. When I was thirteen years old I got my first GoPro and made A Lot of really bad videos.. At least, until I made my first good one. When I was fifteen I got my first drone! A DJI Phantom 3 Standard, after many crashes, I started getting much better and confident so I started posting videos online. At sixteen I bought my first camera, Canon Rebel T6s. for a first camera, this was more than enough to handle. Since i've had it I learn something new every day and now, all photos I post online are taken with this camera! And finally, at 17 I was gifted a DJI Phantom 4 Pro! This is the top of the line consumer drone which meas high quality content for the viewer and that’s what has mattered to me the most since I started my Youtube channel and I now have the ability to post 4k Cinematic videos online. I plan to continue bettering my skills as a filmmaker and photographer, along with traveling the world living every moment to the fullest and enjoying life, with a lens.
