Hey, I'm Hannah

My career started as an on-camera sports reporter for the University of Alabama, a dream realized, as I stood sideline with a camera and mic, feet away from clanking helmets. It was thrilling!

 

My next career step took me behind-the-scenes to Scripps Networks Interactive (now Discovery), producing videos and shows for their high-profile brands HGTV, Travel Channel and others. I was involved in every part of the long- and short-form production process, from brainstorming and writing, to field-producing and shooting, to post-producing and delivering. This career took me all over the country to create content for a global audience. 

 

After several years there, I ventured into freelancing, something that had always been on my mind. 

 

I now use my skills to take brands and destinations to the next level through creating and sharing strategic content on social and digital platforms. From ghostwriting blogs and shooting videos to managing social media pages and editing reels, I love working one-on-one with clients to help them surpass their goals.

Through different careers, one thing has stayed the same: my passion for creating content and my desire to continually grow, learn, and adapt.

FUN FACTS

I live in my hometown of Tuscaloosa, AL with my tennis-coaching husband, Ezequiel (#MillstoGils). We recently renovated our 1950's home (@gilswithdrills). In the past 10 years, I've lived and worked in Thomasville, GA, Brisbane, Australia, Knoxville, TN, and Houston, TX. One summer, I emceed in-game promotional contests for the Tennessee Smokies, where I made people dress up in taco costumes. I'm a huge foodie with an extra sweet-tooth who loves to balance healthy eating with indulgent treats. I once documented Former First Lady Michelle Obama surprising children with garden baskets. In my favorite shoot ever, I made my husband dress up like Waldo; everyone screamed, "I found him!"
