Originally from Joplin, Missouri, Cannon brings more than 25 years of experience and a diverse background as a producer and director to his role.

His love of filmed content began with appearing in commercials as a child and working at a local ABC affiliate during high school.

He helped to develop its Media Club, which empowers members to be content creators. He is also an avid golfer (traditional and disc), and enjoys sailing, hiking, running, wine and birdwatching. He often drinks wine while bird watching as birds are less interesting without the wine.
