Chris and Nick are long-time friends, Co-Founders of Bonsai Creative, and Co-Hosts of the MAKE IT Podcast. They bring a wealth of industry knowledge from their experience as Executive and Associate Producers on three award-winning feature films and their engagement with the film community over the past ten years. They blend this knowledge with their professional successes in Marketing, Journalism, Management Consulting, Sales, Real-Estate, and Investment Portfolio Management.

As hosts of the MAKE IT podcast, Chris and Nick make it their goal to entertain, educate, and inspire through every episode, and they are joined by a growing cast of creatives to help them do just that. This is the first and only film podcast by two African-American creatives to reach over 350 episodes, across 35 podcast platforms, while maintaining a five-star rating!
