Territory has announced the addition of two editors to its editorial and finish roster. Creative Editor Patrick Youkanna joins Territory by way of the Underground.
Patrick began his career as an assistant editor and honed his skills under several top editors from across the country. Youkanna quickly found himself in the editors chair and has completed projects with such clients as JCPenneys, JBL, and Jeep to name a few. The timing of the move was perfect for Youkanna, who had been interested in joining Territory for quite some time, “I had the opportunity to assist Sarah Fisher on a couple of projects some years ago, and we formed a great working relationship and kept in touch. I couldn’t be more thrilled to join up with the amazing group at Territory”.
“We are very excited about Patrick joining the ranks here. states Sarah Fisher, Partner & Editor at Territory, “I have watched him come up over the years and his talent speaks for itself. I feel that he will quickly established himself as a sought after editor in Detroit and beyond.”
Territory has also brought on Finishing Editor, compositor Brooks Tomlinson. Brooks got his start in Nashville, Tennessee editing for Spike TV’s Automotive shows the Powerblock. Cutting show segments on second shift, his dedication to detail and creative approach soon earned him a position creating national commercials from start to finish.
Brooks has worked with a lot of automotive aftermarket giants, like Loctite, Royal Purple and Roush, but also had the pleasure of creating music videos for the likes of Darius Rucker and Natalie Grant. His experience with automotive work and polished finishing skills allowed him the opportunity to return to Michigan to be closer to his family. For a time, he roamed the Metro Detroit area, gaining an understanding of the Detroit market and it’s needs. Once he stepped foot into Territory, he knew that this is where he wanted to be. “I was drawn to Territory’s passion for excellence, and high end look, but honestly it is all the great people working here that has me extremely excited.
"Brooks is the quintessential pairing of tech master and creative. We got the chance to work with Brooks on a few freelance jobs earlier and he totally blew us and the clients away with his finishing capabilities. I think that Brooks along with our current master of finishing, Brent Edwards in their matching Quantel Pablo Rio Suites come together to create a very formidable team" states Terry King, Editor & Owner at Territory.
