Michael & Andrea
Husband & Wife Team
Who We Are
We are a creative husband and wife production team helping businesses gain clarity, fulfill their purpose, and revitalize their presence through digital means.
My name is Mike, I’m a producer/operator and founder of MoneymakerIsland. I like creating stuff that has value, serves a purpose, and continue to hold my work to the highest standard. I believe if you are going to do anything in life, you mind as well strive to be the best at it. I’m a yes or no, do or die, kind of guy.
Back in 2013 I was in a traumatic motorcycle accident. I was brain damaged and broke every bone in my body. Doctors kept telling me this was “my new normal” but I told them I wasn’t some chump. Through consistent hard work and dedication I became a ‘miraculous’ recovery success story. Since then I realized life is too short and have been operating in full gear.
We moved to Bayonne, NJ 2yrs ago with nothing. In this time I’ve met most of the business community, joined the Chamber of Commerce, made some solid friends, became vice president of the Rotary club, and built a six-figure production company from scratch working from home. I can confidently say I am a guy that can show up anywhere and make sh*t happen.
I am a self taught graphic designer & editor and always look to make things more visually appealing. I try to look past the initial details and find the inner beauty that resonates. I want my work to touch people on a human level that we can all relate too.
I was born in Colombia and came to the US to learn English. I never planned on staying until I met my husband who taught me so many good things in life and lead me to where I am today.
I support my husband and want to continue growing together and building our MoneymakerIsland.
Fun Fact: I was raised by my grandmother and I LOVE cooking! She used to cook all day, whenever she wasn’t at home, I had to cook because I wasn’t gonna eat some flavorless food. And we never had fast or processed food laying around the house so don’t think my husband got fat because of that, he got fat because he eats all my healthy cooked meals!
We were young, broke, and didn’t know how to do anything – we just knew we wanted to build a comfortable life together. After 5 months of dating, we got married, moved in together, worked a bunch of miserable tedious jobs, slowly built up a production arsenal, and made our dreams a reality.
Today we work full-time from home running a production company called MoneymakerIsland.
We built our business through trial and error working with real people. In order for us to offer competitive service and go beyond the call of duty, we had to continuously refine our process, and look where we can cut out inefficiencies, and still do so to this day.
Over 500 projects later and working with nearly a thousand people, we found the one approach that worked with everyone, was keeping it real. No planned out scripts, just us talking to each other like human beings, and bringing out the candid moments that meant something. That’s why at MoneymakerIsland, we strive to give all of our projects the candid commercial touch.
That doesn’t mean there’s no planning! We heavily believe in preparation and arriving on location with a solid game plan to maximize production output. And by doing so, we’ve made it such a smooth and seamless experience for you, it won’t feel like you’re doing anything, and that’s where the magic happens.
