A LITTLE CONTEXT
The Brothers Buoy started as a fun project for us back in 2013. We jumped on board the hurdling rocket ship that was the NYC food influencer scene, and found it equal parts captivating and frustrating. After years of watching restaurants and brands struggle with the uncertain quality of influencer generated content, we decided to do something about it.
Both coming from creative backgrounds, we knew that forming our own creative agency was the logical next step for this little side project. Our aim was to focus on the stories that businesses have to tell and the people that are there to tell them.
Our agency generates content that we always wished we saw out in the world.
Content with intrigue, wit and soul.
Graham Burns -
After moving to NYC in 2009 Graham freelanced as a videographer, producer, and editor until he got a job working at the Apple Store in Soho (where he first met Jackson). In 2013 Graham left the Genius Bar to start his own multi-media production company, Coolburns & Co., where he collaborated with other talented creatives and created engaging photo and video content for brands such as Dell, Remmy Martin, and PUMA.
Jackson Cook -
Jackson came to the NYC in 2011 after graduating from SUNY Purchase with a BFA in Graphic Arts and Printing. After almost 3 years at Apple (where he met Graham. Wait did Graham also talk about this?), he worked briefly at a creative agency before joining the team at Urbanspace. He spent just over two years working with the restaurant entrepreneurs there as the General Manager before heading out into entrepreneurship himself starting Buoy Worldwide in 2017.
