Wil Frierson: After graduating from Cleveland State University with a digital media degree, I kicked off my career as a video editor at WEWS-TV in Cleveland, Ohio. After five years with WEWS, I moved on to TTI Floor Care in Solon, Ohio. I served as one of their videographer/video editors for two years. Currently I am the videographer, video editor, and motion graphics artist at Wyse Advertising in Cleveland, Ohio. If am I not in front of a computer or with a camera, I'm probably on my bike on my way to some cool bar to chill with friends and family, watching an indie short film, or preparing for a Browns Super Bowl :).
