Nick Schale started 29 Pixel Studios when he went full-time self-employed in 2013, but has been freelancing since 2003. 29 Pixel Studios mainly focuses on video production but also has a strong photography offering. Nick is also the creator of the "Business Tips for Creatives" podcast.

Kyle Hamrick also began doing freelance work on the side in 2003, and went full-time as a freelancer/running a small studio, The Feral Few, in 2010. He just presented on this topic (along with Jessica Thomas) at this year's Adobe Video World.

We also have several regulars who have been successfully self-employed and/or running their own businesses for years. We're really looking forward to a great informative discussion!
