A Bit About Me

Who I Am & What I Do


I am a full time creative, brand ambassador and business owner based in South Central Kentucky. I run a Awaken Design Company and AnthonyAwaken full time.

I specialize in brand building services for my incredible clients such as: photography, content writing, logos, branding, as well as web and design. I have a decade of experience in the creative field and it is where my abstract mind works best.

Why AnthonyAwaken


I have been an avid outdoorsman & advocate for great outdoor gear for as long as I can remember. Since launching AnthonyAwaken it has given me the opportunity to work closer with companies that I love within the outdoor industry. All while offering services & content that help build their brands.

AnthonyAwaken has also allowed me to promote & offer up a different style than I have in the past through my design studio. The style here is very earthy, dark, moody and organic. Which has always been my personal style in terms of photography & design.

What Pushes Me Everyday


I am a father of 4 and husband to my high school sweetheart. Anywhere that family and creativity are near is home to me.
