Eric Kasimov
Founder / CEO

Eric is the Founder of SportsEpreneur (a KazSource brand). His rallying cries: "sports bring people together" and "content brings people together" are at the root of why SE exists. He thinks every entrepreneur that is willing should have their own content platform -- and he wants to help make that happen through the content production team at KazCM. Sports, entrepreneurship, mental health, psychology, philosophy, podcasting, reading, and good old self-talk are what Eric and the team talk about on this platform. Some podcast episodes that hit on Eric's rallying cry of "content brings people together": content creation journey and talent stacking.

Shane Snively
Finance | Content and Brand Strategist

Whiteboard, chalkboard, Surface Pro, a piece of paper—that’s where you will find Shane, strategizing. He enjoys it, whether he’s strategizing for his business or for yours. Thus he is known The Strategy Addict. He has seen it all and if he hasn’t seen it he will learn about it. Maybe we should call him The Learning Addict? Anyway, that’s Shane. Oh, and he loves his Buckeyes, and he’s still loyal to his dad’s favorite team too, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Scott Upton
Tech Guru

Believes that anything can be done if you put your mind to it. Scott may not be the sports fanatic like the rest of us are, but he shares our passion in helping entrepreneurs and business leaders. In his free time, he keeps busy on his farm, hiking, fishing or of course, firing up the smoker for a mean barbecue.

Caroline Ailanthus
The Word Smith

When she’s not writing her own blogs and novels, she’s helping us say what we want, only better. She’s happy to help you get your words in order, too. She even has a couple of super powers! For example, she can improve the flow and readability of text on virtually any subject, even if she has no idea what that subject’s about. That’s how she’s been a valued member of our team for years now, even though she still wants to know what a quarterback is a quarter of.

Julian Virag
Podcast Editor

Audio engineering as a term may not sound so clear to some people, but the main goal of audio engineering is precisely that – clear sound. Julian approaches each project as if it was his own. The result, clear sound. And when he is not mastering sound, he is off exploring through many different means of transportation.
