You’re So Fly – Seth Wingate

We are all about our members at Flywheel – we think they are some of the best people in Winston-Salem. Every month, we love to highlight a member through our “You’re So Fly” event/series so everyone else can see why they are the best. Today we are highlighting Seth Wingate. Read on to hear why Seth is “so fly”!

What do you do?

I own Twin City Media, a video production company for businesses and brands that focuses on creating powerful and creative videos. Some of my clients include Habitat for Humanity of Forysth, Salem CollegeLink Apartments IQ, and Canter Power Systems.  I do everything – from shooting to editing and everything in between.

How did you get to your job today?

I graduated from Appalachian State with a degree in elementary education. I taught 4th grade for five years before taking a part-time job at my church and launching Twin City Media. I have always loved video. I vividly remember getting my very own VHS tape when I was little. I was so excited to have a whole six hours of footage to shoot my own video projects.  Looking back now I can see that my passion for making videos has never diminished since I was 10 years old.  In 2017 I decided to take the jump to doing Twin City Media full time and have loved it!

What do you love most about what you do?

One of the most rewarding parts of my job is to work with clients who are nervous about being on camera and helping them feel confident. I love watching people see the final product and say “wow that’s me!”

What is something that your average coworker would not know about you?

I love traveling and hitchhiked across Spain by myself for three months.

 

Describe yourself in 5 words.

Spontaneous, Extrovert, Thinker, Rapscallion, Middle Child

What are you most proud of?

Seeing where my former students are today.

Name something on your bucket list.

Swimming with whale sharks in Thailand.

Why coworking?

I have been a member of Flywheel for a little over a year and have not looked back since. I love the productive spirit that lives at coworking spaces. I am more efficient when I get out of the house and have a separate space for my work.

Why Flywheel?

Flywheel has been instrumental in the growth of my business.  I worked from home for over four years before finally making the jump to Flywheel and it has been amazing.  You cannot beat the location, rates & view.  Since moving to Flywheel and just being out of the house my productivity has increased over 200%.  The community is welcoming and the espresso machine is on point.  Want to grow your business? Get out of your house and into Flywheel.

 

Thank you Seth for being a member of Flywheel. You can find Seth busy at his reserved desk editing his latest video, making an americano or training a new member on how to use Flywheel’s espresso machine!
