Stephen T. Yeakley

In the past I have held roles as a photographer, webmaster, designer and creative director. I am a storyteller. With years of experience in crafting the bigger story that positions and defines what a brand is, for clients big and small, my role is always the same—clearly telling their story. Review some of my latest work, both commercial and personal here on Cargo. Currently, I work with the talent rich team at OpenForm.

I grew up as the minority, living in Indonesia and as the majority, when I moved to the US at age 13. Though I have never really found a place geographically to call home, artfully crafting some form of creative work has always been a place of solace. I am married to a beauty by the name of Hannah Joy. I just became a new father of two amazing daughters–Miriam Joy & Emma Grace. I love my coffee black, my tea green and my skies blue. I am proud to live in Tucson, Arizona.
