What hasn't been said about Grant Morris that hasn't already been said about Aristotle or Socrates. He's wicked deep. A native Louisianian, he's wrestled alligators in the swamps, adventured in the High Sierras of California, filmed with The Westboro Baptist Church, photographed wildfires and numerous presidents. Yes, Grant has lived a charmed life. Today, he is one of the founders of New Sky Productions where he has enjoyed year after year of annual growth and accolades such as being one of The Nashua Telegraph's 20 Emerging Business Leaders in 2014, The New Hampshire Union Leaders' 40 Under 40 and lead New Sky to being a finalist for Small Business of the year in the Greater Nashua of Commerce Eminence Awards. Grant loves spending time with his wife Caitlyn and their colossal yellow lab, Rufus in the great outdoors of New Hampshire. Tell Grant 'Hi' and ask him to tell you a joke.

A pure-bred New Englander, Meghan is a force of brilliance that keeps us all on our toes. Driven by creative passion and ruled by organized precision, she chose to go into the video production field, receiving her degree from Emerson College in Boston. Her unconditional love for that dirty water kept her on the East Coast while most ventured out West, and the Universe brought her on a journey that ultimately lead her to New Sky Productions. Her vision and methodology for efficiency is a unique skill that suits her perfectly for the role of Senior Production Manager. In the office, we call her Megatron, but at home, she answers to Mom, making her a perfect fit for our mission to bring stories and creativity to life, and our passion to make the world a better place.
Jolanda developed her passion for Marketing, Sales and community outreach over thirteen years ago upon starting with Margaritas Mexican Restaurants. Through Local Store Marketing, she was able to identify her knack for both interpersonal and public communication, ultimately joining the Margaritas Corporate Marketing Team. Her positively friendly demeanor, strong customer service and networking skills, and extensive background in outside sales are all attributes that make her an asset to our team. When she's not actively filling the sales pipeline she is hanging out with her best buds, son James and husband Jamie. The Logans enjoy days at the lake, studying martial arts, traveling to spend time with family and friends, and general silliness. Jolanda is also a devoted Pearl Jam fan, she wanted to make sure we included that.
