Meet the Team

Michelle Alvarado

Director
It’s rare that someone finds their passion at such a young age and follows it doggedly, unwilling to be diverted by adolescent whims. But just like her images, Michelle stayed focused. She went to USC Cinema and landed jobs at National Geographic, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and Showtime. In 2005, Michelle founded Wahoo Films to help organizations better connect with their audience. Her genuine passion for her customers is evident in the videos she produces for them.

Henry Kim

Creative Producer
Most know Henry as a hard worker who is dedicated to every partnership he builds, fulfilling each promise. But he is also a storyteller… After 10 years of sales and marketing experience in the healthcare industry, retail, and the arts, Henry discovered he was connecting with customers through quality storytelling. Knowing that video is one of the most powerful tools to connect with customers, he joined Wahoo Films to further positive outreach!

Buster Tronolone

Director of Photography
Buster got his start traveling the world as a DP while honing his eye with a 4k camera and drone to capture unique perspectives of surfing and kiteboarding for national TV. He applies that same rock star ability to create stunning visuals and compelling stories for our customers who really enjoy working with him.

Nate Quinn

Camera + Editor + Media Manager
Living in Central Oregon is challenging for any man who can’t grow a bushy beard, but Nate easily overcomes this inability by pursuing his love for the outdoors. He’s been making videos with his friends since around the time he could walk. Throughout his career, he has worked on large and small scale productions while producing commercials and television shows for NBC and ABC as well as short films and documentaries with PBS. He composes videos as if conducting an orchestra. Each shot, sound and graphic contributes to the piece in a harmonic way. Whatever the job, big or small, he follows his heart and is happy to still be making videos with his friends.

 

Sean Struble

Editor + Animator
Five years ago, Sean cycled up to the Wahoo Films office to see if we were hiring. His modest approach impressed us soon after watching his videos and learning about his degree in film/video. Over the years, Sean has become increasingly versatile in his skills with animation and video color stylizing. Sean loves to edit while traveling the country with his road dog Bear in his custom van that not only serves as his ride but also his very own solar-powered editing suite complete with doggy bed.

Carlene Orsillo

Production Manager
Carlene is a Bend native who has always craved to discover the world and participate in the community. Ever since she has been able to hop behind the wheel of a car, there has been no road untraveled. As she embarked on her journeys to various parts of the world, her desire to document her experiences helped her develop a passion for photography and film. Carlene grew up involved in the community through her dedication in helping others in need. She continues her mission at Wahoo Films by helping meaningful stories rise above the noise.
