While Nate worked 50-60 hour weeks with a 10 hour commute on top as a public accountant, his family grew closer without him being there. He would kiss his kids goodbye in the morning and then kiss them goodnight while they were sleeping, and that was during a good week. More often, he would be out of town on business until the weekends. “I felt like my little girls were growing up without me, and I didn’t really know them anymore. I bought a point and shoot camera, and made short home videos with them so that we could still see each other during the week.” Some would be short stories with morals, others were just fun moments he wanted to remember. To this day, Nate will sit at the computer with his daughters and watch all of the videos still posted on his personal Youtube channel, Melody’s Dad Videos. The ability to sit and remember small moments is one of his favorite activities to do with his kids. This cherished opportunity to remember and relive an experience, a time that otherwise would be forgotten and replaced with other memories, is the very reason he now helps his clients create storytelling films.
