About the Creators

Andy O. White

I am a photographer and videographer focusing primarily on lifestyle, action/adventure and editorial photography and documentary shorts. When I’m not working I’m either riding my bike, drawing questionable doodles, or pretending to be good at ping pong.

Elliot C. Johnson

I joined a training group to prepare for my first marathon. It seemed every session that summer I got to hear  another awe inspiring story of why someone got into running. We decided to make a series of it and “whyirun” was born.

I’m a digital marketer by day & budding film producer and art director by night. I help coordinate, film, and tell emphatic stories.
