Daniel is a passionate entrepreneur through and through, and he loves helping bring ideas to life. As the Managing Director at Joda Creative, he acts as the integrator and oversees all of the company’s operations, while also supporting the business development and marketing teams. When Daniel isn’t working, you can find him hustling on a side project, or running through False Creek with a podcast in his ears. His passion for personal growth runs deep, and he is committed to living his life to the greatest potential and finding a way to uniquely impact the world for the better.

Corim is a highly talented and hardworking content creator, with a passion for film production. He’s also a recent graduate of the University of British Columbia where he earned a Bachelor of Commerce degree, with a specialization in Marketing. His education and experience gives him a very unique set of skills and knowledge as a modern marketer. Here at Joda, he is a content engine, supporting on set as a videographer and behind the scenes as an editor, while also advising on content strategy for our clients. When Corim isn’t hustling in the office or on set, you can be sure he’s out creating magic with his camera somewhere around the city.

VALERIAN WIEBE

Valerian is a creator and entrepreneur by nature, and his role is to connect and foster community around the various client and internal projects that exist here at Joda. Valerian has an eye for great content, and his kind and collaborative nature gives him the unique ability to bring people together and grow communities both online and off.

Lana Jankovic

She is a passionate story teller, natural copywriter and talented creative, so here at Joda she manages social media accounts, prepares newsletters and blog posts, and develops content strategies on behalf of our clients.
