josiah.jpg

JOSIAH ENGSTROM

President

Josiah created MotoVike Films out of a desire to make films and tell stories. Combining the founder’s love for all two-wheeled vehicles and a proud Nordic heritage, the term MotoVike was born. Josiah yearns to capture the emotion and detail of your ideas on film and give you an unforgettable visual experience. His personality can captivate a room, but can make an individual feel at ease, even with a camera on them. Josiah lives in Topeka, KS with his wife, son, and their three daughters. He enjoys frequenting the wilds of Colorado, fly fishing, and cruising downtown Topeka on two wheels.

kat.jpg

KAT KEYES

Producer

Creativity requires flow. And to encourage flow, someone has to keep all the moving parts organized. Kat isn’t exactly Nordic, but has a Portuguese fairy magic all her own: breaking down the pieces that go into your story, so the experience is fluid and all those individual parts can serve the whole. For the past 10 years, Kat has worked on nearly every part of agency and video production work, from coordination, concepting, scripting, shooting, editing, motion graphics and design. Kat lives in Lawrence, KS with her husband, Blake and a temperamental tiny lion, Helena. They met filmmaking and enjoy traveling the world, producing independent films, and supporting live theatre.

blake.jpg

BLAKE KRESGE

Filmmaker

Blake has been involved in professional video production for more than 10 years. His career has evolved many times, from shooting, editing news and sports, to producing the 6 pm and 10 pm broadcasts at the local TV station, to spending months on the road a year shooting and editing feature pieces, to leading a video team of 10. Blake lives in Lawrence, KS with his wife, Kat, and has a small cherry tomato farm. They enjoy exploring and capturing new cities on camera. He's an avid sports fan, spending approximately half of his summer at Kauffman stadium watching the Royals, and the other half keeping up on stats.

AVERY STRATTON

Filmmaker

Avery joined the MotoVike team as an intern in 2015 after directing and producing the international award-winning mini-documentary, “Kodak in the Congo.” After working hard, making some cool stuff, and being generally awesome, Avery graduated from “Intern” to “Filmmaker.” She is passionate about all things film–don’t even get her started on the stylings of Quentin Tarantino. Avery enjoys impulsive book and vinyl-buying (but not having any time to enjoy them), playing guitar, painting, and spending time outdoors with her dog, The Real Slim Sadie.

bryan.jpg

BRYAN WINTERS

Filmmaker

With a passion for the process, Bryan brings to Motovike an eye for detail, and a personality to make anyone comfortable in front of the camera. Raised right outside the city of Topeka, he spent his formative years in the video store owned by his mom Patti, where his love for film began. While getting his degree from KU (Rock Chalk!), Bryan worked for a local news station. After that, he spent the better half of a decade with a local marketing organization traveling the country to create branding films for their clients. He’s excited to tell your story next. Bryan and his wife Melinda live in Topeka, with their grumpy old puggle, Lucy. Together they enjoy traveling the world and the USA, any type of live music, craft beers festivals, and supporting anything that makes Topeka a better community.

megan.jpg

MEGAN OLAFSON

Producer

Megan has been involved in the creative arts in one form or another for nearly 10 years. Starting with a degree in digital media, Megan then found her way into lighting design and live production. She loves all things tech and will nerd out on lighting, graphic design, and art if you let her. Detailed and ever-organized, Megan lives for solving-problems, finding efficiencies, and constantly learning. She lives in Lawrence, KS with her husband, Joshua and fluffy half-ewok, half-dog, Mac. Megan enjoys painting, drawing, and spending the year eagerly awaiting the arrival of storm season.
