Some of Dane Strother’s earliest memories are sweating out Election Day. He was raised carrying lights as a crewmember on film shoots, spent his formative years doing grunt work in campaigns and then learned communications in journalism school and as a reporter. The marriage of these talents has culminated in his long ago being named a “Rising Star”, “Mover and Shaker” and the winner of multiple awards.
