My name is Jordan Thacker, I’m an experienced Digital Content Manager and Video Editor with over 7 years behind me working in the digital media industry. Skilled in Video Production/Post-Production, Adviser, Community Management, Internet Video Production, Content Strategy, and Social Media.
I was born in Pikeville, Kentucky but currently live and work out of Lexington, Kentucky. I’m married to my beautiful wife, Elle who is from London, United Kingdom. She helps me with everything work related and is part of the ZanitorTv business. I consider myself a southern gentleman with a British twang due to I’ve slightly lost my accent since marrying my wife and living in the UK for 6 months previously.
You can find me on multiple social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube. Often you will also find my wife and I writing blog posts on ACupOfLex which is our blog for all things local or fun to Lexington/Central Kentucky. I also manage the Sips – Live! YouTube channel full time while editing all of the videos, filling all metadata and more!
On the side, I record and upload stock video footage which you can buy on my Pond5 page. I truly enjoy the experience of video making all the way from the filming to the editing stages. Challenges are what make it fun and I think that’s an important thing to remember.
