Photographer / Social Media Coordinator

Mason was gifted his first camera at the age of six and has had a difficult time putting it down
ever since. He holds two bachelor’s degrees in Finance and Business Administration from the
University of Wisconsin, and has a passion for marketing and growing small businesses. As one
of the youngest members of the Fuckin’ team, he directs the creative aspects and portrays the
brand to consumers across multiple platforms. He brings the company’s vision into fruition.
When he isn’t behind a lens, he enjoys being a complete wine snob, traveling to new places far
and wide (for photography, clearly), or perfecting his role as a proper ski bum at his home in Big
Sky, Montana. He looks forward to all facets of the “Fuckin’ concept” and is grateful to be part of
the team.
