Our Story

Growing up as a kid in Cleveland, Ohio, Flex Media’s founder Bill Baraona was always fascinated by movies and special effects. He’d spend time building props, reenacting his favorite movies and playing with his parents’ video camera.

Fast forward to high school, Bill attended Cuyahoga Valley Career Center’s (CVCC) Media Technology program for video production. That’s where he met his wife Jackie who was studying graphic design. They connected on a field trip to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and the rest is history.

Fast forward 12 years and they are experienced professionals with the same passion for creativity they had the day they met. Having gained skills working for other companies, and seeing opportunities to do more for clients, Jackie and Bill decided to start their own business to help others grow.

Jackie and Bill, along with friend and fellow creative Kathie Zipp, work together at Flex Media to offer strategically built content for organizations that not only engages customers but also drives ROI.
