Kendra Crooks, "When I look back at my time at the University of New Mexico, the Sustainability Program holds some of my defining moments as a student and as a person. Not only did I feel the immense support from the instructors and my peers, but I was also allowed the freedom to decide what I wanted to do with the education I received in the classroom and beyond. Since graduating from UNM with a major in Film and a minor in Sustainability Studies, I've gone on to co-found a local production company that focuses on using video and photography to tell stories. My purpose in business is to showcase local potential whether that be small businesses, personal endeavors and/or artistic expression. I've also used my fascination of agriculture to delve deeper into the ancient practice of viticulture. If I'm not in the studio or on a shoot, you can find me at one of New Mexico's gems, Gruet Winery, where I find great passion in educating myself and others about the process and art of wine. I plan to continue my education as a Sommelier while building a sustainable media business from the ground up."
