the team behind Black Crown Media
Creating an immersive brand experience doesn’t happen without intention. Curious and creative, Jensine connects story and impact to open the door for discourse around lack of access, exposure, and opportunity for people of color. By helping our clients, Jensine hopes to build incremental positive change. Oh, and if she could have any superpower, she’d want omniscience.
Jensine Mattis - the immersion master
Production Project Manager
Isis' favorite thing about social media is the virality of reality. Social media is spontaneous and unpredictable, and you never know what will become a trend. By tapping into a brand's voice, sharing a message, and building your brand, we can change lives and provide opportunities. With over 6 years of experience in social media management, being versatile is an essential skill, so it is no surprise that her desired superpower is to shapeshift.

Social Media Manager
A data and numbers guy for over 10 years, Jamie thrives on an ever-changing environment when working with a variety of clients. Each client and approach is different, making the work exciting. If he could have any superpower, he'd wish for photographic memory. It'd make dealing with numbers that much more fun, plus it'd be a pretty handy skill. Although he is a fan of storytelling, he loves the logical side of analytics and finance. His ability to take emotions out of decision-making helps us run smoothly.
Luis Laboy - the chef
Like many of the greats, Korey discovered his talents at a young age. He started writing at nine, photography at fourteen, and finally film-related work in 2005. What he loves most about film is how it combines everything he loves: photography, storytelling, and music. He admires that Black Crown Media seeks to bring proper equity to the creation and profit of diverse media. Other things he loves include blue and authentic Italian.

Trust is magic. The right visuals can attract customers globally with nothing in common other than the subject. Photography holds the power to connect and increase engagement within our human collective, it’s what first attracted Anyelo to the medium. Fun fact: He has been doing photography since developing black & white films and printing in-person was the norm. If he had to pick a favorite color, it’d be black (although technically, it’s the absence of color).
Anyelo Valencia - The MEssenger
If we are in the business of telling narratives, we must tell all stories. Denying other stories contaminates the art and the values we try to uphold. The creative process is collaborative even if done alone. Discovering a story is connecting to a person or thing, and embracing the qualities and perspectives that come from it. As a scriptwriter and assistant editor, he takes pride in weaving multiple POVs together to create genuine stories. His superpower of choice is electricity as it could be used for electricity, superspeed, faster metabolism, fueling the electricity in your brain, and charging his electronics.
Jeron Randolph - The storyteller
Digital marketing keeps Perry on his toes. Even with 6 years of experience, there is always something to learn and new ideas to be ideated. Perry’s favorite part about working at Black Crown Media is seeing the look on our clients’ faces when we get the results they wanted. Like marketing that requires dabbling in a few different areas, DEI matters because we all have great talents that work better together. As if he isn’t already, Perry said, he’d want to be “super smart” if he could choose any superpower.

digital marketing manager
Equity is not about creating a “sense” of hope, it involves giving historically marginalized groups evidence of hope. Education and action go hand in hand. DEI matters because we cannot succeed as a collective if other humans are playing in different fields. DeAnnah lives for the "aha" and "omg" moments along the client's journey. Her most desired super power is to see the future… and she hopes it’s more equitable than it is now.
