Our Story


We’ve always grown up in a creative environment. It just so happens that our creative skill-sets complement each other in a way that led us to team up to pursue our passions together as a team; Khaleel with his business acumen, Maleek with his creative production skills, and Najm with his social media influence and creative direction. We are not a traditional media company. We strive to make change in the community by telling stories, connecting with artists and entrepreneurs, and supporting our family. This is just the beginning of something great. We invite you to be apart of our journey. Learn more about each of us below!

Maleek Loyd

I am a graduate of Appalachian State University with a degree in Electronic Media Production. I started shooting and editing videos as a sophomore in high school, where I competed in National SkillsUSA competitions and won awards for my work with fellow students. Since then, I’ve been fortunate to create photo and video work for various university departments, artists, non-profits, small businesses and more. I am most interested in creating travel and time lapse videos, as they allow me to explore my creativity through experimenting with different editing techniques. As I grow as a video creator, I hope to meet new creatives and continue learning about everything this industry has to offer.

Najm Loyd

What’s up world! My name is Najm Loyd, a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro currently residing in Philadelphia, PA. I have a knack for photography with a passion for fashion and content creation. I have been doing photography for about 4 years now and haven’t slowed up since. During this journey I have had humbling opportunities to create content for brands such as Jordan Brand, Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, Timberland, and Converse. My creative niche comes with shooting fashion look-books and portraits. Along with photography I also do brand image/marketing, social media strategy, and men's styling just to name a few. Currently, I work as a Men's Stylist for Urban Outfitters where I help develop content for the company and put together outfits for the E-commerce website. My goal is to create visuals and projects with like-minded individuals from all over the world, so with that being said, let’s work!
