Hello

Hi, I'm Graham King

Hi, I’m Graham. I was born in San Francisco in the late 1900’s. When I was 6 months old my two moms moved us to the East Oakland neighborhood of Allendale. We eventually settled into a little Millsmont home right off Seminary Avenue where my sister and I grew up. While attending Skyline High School, I got my first job at KDOL, the Oakland Unified School District’s television station. After school, I actually appeared on live cable TV four days a week on a show called Homework Hotline. Students would call in with their homework questions and I tutored them live on the air while they watched from home. It was a great experience but because only students can be on the show, once I graduated (c/o 2001) I moved over to the production side of the studio where I learned to shoot and edit video. This turned out to be more transformative than I ever imagined.

My Passion

I discovered that video was an art that I could create to make people feel an emotion. I was hooked. That experience lead me to my first career in video production. Over the next 20 years I went on to shoot over 600 weddings as well as productions big and small for organizations like Salesforce, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCSF, Bay Alarm, Kaiser, and more. Owning a video production company gave me a great firsthand education in marketing. Not only did I have to excel at marketing my own business but I actually got to create marketing materials for other businesses. Perhaps even more important was the experience I got in putting customers first. My customer first focus in everything I did made me the highest rated videographer in the Bay Area.

Working with Graham

My Work Ethic

Entrepreneurship, marketing, and a customer first mindset are the keys to all of my successful businesses. In addition to video production, I also own a vintage Airstream restoration company, a real estate investment company, and a nonprofit charity, The King Family Foundation. Today, my wife and I live in Redwood Heights with our two young daughters. We were lucky enough to buy our house from our landlord and transform it from the ugliest house on the block to the house of our dreams. So I know firsthand the power of real estate to make dreams come true.
 
At the end of the day, my successes can be attributed to many things: privilege, purpose, passion. And while my passions are many, the common thread running through all of my ventures is a passion to make the world a little better. I care about the people I work with, the people I work for, and the things we’re building together. And I look forward to building something together with you.
