My name is Michael Gebben or as most call me GEBBS :) I've been in videography for a long time, I started my Video Production Company at the age of 19 with no college and have traveled the world shooting weddings, events and working with some of the biggest names in the world such as Richard Branson, Tim Ferriss, Lewis Howes, Tony Robbins and more.

Today, I pour my focus and energy into mentoring and coaching Filmmakers & Videographers in the areas of business & mindset so they can have a business & life they've always dreamed of.

There are "Solo Sessions", "One on One Coaching Sessions", & "Guest Sessions (Expert Interrogations)".
