Davis Goslin Travel, Logistics, Audio
While others look at a group and see friends talking and laughing, Davis has the unique ability to see an individual’s strengths and abilities and to inspire him or her to apply them to a greater purpose. He is a leader that can conceive and execute a plan in three minutes or three months. He strives to push people, putting them in a place where they can thrive and truly live out their passions.
If you got in Davis’ car you would be welcomed by blasting music and authentic conversation while driving (and dancing) down an open dirt road. Davis loves Join the Lights because it allows him to meet authentic world changers, hear their stories and become their friends. Davis is a king at travel coordination, firing away emails, and making friends around the world.

Kevin Neynaber Editing, Story, Graphics
Kevin is excellent, and he wouldn’t go to sleep at night if he wasn’t. He has an attention to detail that will not let mediocrity pass. He pours that quality into everything he does from post-production, web design, business, graphics, and story development.
