Isaiah has been helping a diverse range of clients with an even more diverse range of media and communications projects for over 25 years. A lot has changed in that time: the scale and complexity of the projects, the technology platforms and communication methods used, the size and capability of team required to deliver outcomes… but the one thing that hasn’t changed is Isaiah’s unwavering commitment toward helping clients succeed.
When he’s not busy in meetings, Isaiah loves to be in the outdoors mountain biking, swimming in the ocean, swinging in a hammock, stoking a fire, and savouring Spanish red wines (not all at the same time).
Haami has worked in TV and video production for almost 20 years across two continents, including 5 years at The PBS NewsHour. An experienced and multi-skilled writer/producer/director, he brings a unique combination of analytical skill, technical knowledge, and artistic creativity.
Whether it’s a big-budget corporate promo, a multimedia training product for a government institution, a TVC for an advertising agency, or a script for a popular TV program, Haami can deliver clear communication, memorable concepts, and quality production. Despite all this, his cat hates him.
