Meet the Kzoom Team

Founded in 2003, our team has evolved from a small video production company into a midwest-centric full-service digital marketing team. We believe in Kalamazoo and are dedicated to supporting local non-profits and companies as they serve the community.

Dan Martin

Dan started Kzoom out of his basement in 2003 providing video production. Since then, he has taken over project management and administration.

He loves traveling with his 6 kids and wife, Sara. They run a hobby farm and are always adding new animals to the lineup.

Lori Larsen

Director of Business Development

Lori is a self-proclaimed chaos coordinator charged by positivity and spreadsheets. She has a decade of marketing experience and loves strategizing marketing plans and building content to drive results.

Outside of work you’ll find Lori hanging out with her extended family, relaxing with her cat Jack, or making memories with her husband John visiting local breweries or vacationing across the country.

Mike Tiesenga

Filmmaker & Editor

Mike would describe himself as someone who knows a little about a lot. He loves trying new and especially strange foods, enjoys deep dive narrative podcasts and documentaries, and cares just a little too much about MIchigan football. Over all of this Mike cherishes the adventures of everyday life with his wife and two kids, and probably has a kids song stuck in his head right now.
