WHY YOU SHOULD KNOW CASEY NAVA
For our fourth interview, we had the founder of Navadise Media, Casey Nava. Casey was an athlete for most of his adolescent life until he suffered from a tragic car accident that confined him to a wheelchair for quite some time. In overcoming this life obstacle, Casey discovered an entirely new passion: videography and photography.
Casey, at just the age of 18, built his first drone and pitched an idea to a local golf course to take a photo of their course for marketing imagery. From there, Navadise Media was born. His company and his story has landed him multiple business accounts and even as a speaker for a Tedx Talk.
