The founder and president of SeeFood Media, Jamie Tiampo loves just about every element of food media. A former tech startup executive and a classically trained chef, Jamie is the rare bird who can cook and shoot (ideally not all at once). Between shoots, he can be found dreaming up new kitchen designs for the studio.
Jamie directs food-focused videos for clients ranging from Unilever to Campbell's Soup and Turner Entertainment. His accolades include a James Beard Foundation Award and multiple Telly Awards. Jamie's still photograph portfolio includes top selling cookbooks, digital assets for web and social media use, and product packaging. Jamie is active in the food community, having served two terms as an elected member of the Board of the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP), and on the Industry Advisory Board of the Food & Finance High School in New York City.
Jamie holds a Grand Diplome in Classic Culinary Arts from the French Culinary Institute. He also holds a Master’s degree in Food Studies from New York University, a Restaurant Management Diploma from the Institute for Culinary Education, and a Bachelor of Science in International Marketing and Technology from Washington University in Saint Louis. He is an investor in dell’anima, L’Artusi, and L'Apicio restaurants in New York, and a partner at Top Round Roast Beef in Los Angeles. In his spare time, Jamie scours the globe in search of exotic salt and torments his dog, Chewbarka.
Saukok spent her early years following her Grandmother around Hong Kong’s wet markets, picking out ingredients for each day’s dinner. Her love of exotic food started early, on a food tour across Malaysia at age 8. Saukok keeps SeeFood Media a well-styled, well-oiled machine. Her production and art direction credits include web video segments for Unilever/Knorr, Driscoll's Berries, Upwave and Godiva Chocolatier. Saukok's awards and honors include 3 Silver Telly Awards and 1 Bronze Telly Award for her work with Knorr/Mindshare and Driscoll's Berries, and a James Beard Foundation Award nomination.
Before joining SeeFood Media, Saukok started 57Grand, a line of weddingwear inspired by New York City (now part of the Dessy Group). Prior to heading down the entrepreneur’s path, Saukok worked on Wall Street, where her clients included supermarket chains A&P, Pathmark, and SuperValu and retailers like Michaels Stores. Saukok is a graduate of Harvard College, where she studied topics like the role of media in popular culture, art history, and womens’ studies.
Originally from the North Texas region, Jimmy McCoy has been involved with video production since the age of 11, when his parents allowed him to use their video camera to produce his own short films. A producer of eatTV, SeeFood Media’s James Beard Award-winning food video magazine, Jimmy’s Jedi mind tricks have conquered nearly all aspects of video production. His talents include lighting, sound design, shooting, editing, color correction, motion graphics, media management, computer administration, and still photography.
While majoring in Radio, TV & Film at the University of North Texas, Jimmy spent the majority of his time at his college television station as the station’s Programming Director. After college, he was an Assistant Editor for Crew Cuts, a commercial post production facility. Prior to joining SeeFood Media, Jimmy assisted on various films and documentaries, including “Rabbit Hole”, a feature film starring Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart. In his spare time, Jimmy pretends he is British.
An Atlanta native, Courtney is a healthy blend of Southern charm and tofu. She has a (now mostly ornamental) degree in Anthropology from the University of South Carolina, and a background in reality TV production and theatre. Courtney is a killer with details and keeps the studio in tip top shape.
When she’s not kicking ass and taking names, Courtney can be found belting show tunes and experimenting with vegan baking hacks. Applesauce, you guys!
Kayleigh’s love for food and video was sparked when she discovered SeeFood Media’s videos after listening to Jamie and Saukok’s podcast on Food Blogger Pro.
Kayleigh started making her own raw vegan recipe videos on YouTube under the name Brooklyn Beyer. Her YouTube channel landed her the Taco Bell Live Más Scholarship, funding her education at the Natural Gourmet Institute where she studied vegetarian and vegan cuisine.
In addition to editing, Kayleigh loves dreaming up new video ideas and picking out beauty props. We like to say our office is for dog-lovers only, but Kayleigh is secretly on team cat (don’t tell Chewbarka).
Chewbarka is well known in the neighborhood for never stepping out without her blue booties (aka her Mary Janes). She has a killer handshake and keeps on top of studio security with her patented bark technology.
