MARTY LONG Co-Producer/Director — Upon deciding that North Carolina really was God’s country, Marty left Mississippi for what her mother referred to as “up north” 18 years ago. As someone with an unmarketable Bachelor of Music in music composition must do, she pieced together a career that involved teaching piano and composition lessons, playing in unsuccessful original bands at night, and working with local arts non-profits. Pretty certain that motherhood wouldn’t fit into her extensive open-mic night touring, she settled into the notion of having furkids for life.
KEANNE HOEG Co-Producer — KeAnne is a member of a rare breed known as a “native North Carolinian” and suspects her family never forgave her for moving to “the big city” for college and never leaving. During the day she plays with data for a large university. After work she can be found instilling her love for Anthony Bourdain into her 7-year-old son Daniel, tripping over a proliferation of Legos, cleaning up after a geriatric cat and binging on TV series with her husband thanks to the joys of Netflix and Amazon. Self-described as having “a wealth of useless knowledge,” she has no real hobbies, Tweets obsessively, occasionally reads and explores the sacred, profane and mundane on her blog Family Building with a Twist. She also plays the lottery every Wednesday and Saturday because it is a civic obligation.
