With a passion for business and marketing, Kyle Porter got his first taste of success while in college working as the Advertising Director for the school newspaper. Upon graduation with a marketing degree, Kyle began his agency career at a small start-up agency as a Marketing Assistant.

After transitioning to a larger agency in Scottsdale, Kyle began his management track as the Director of Operations for Steve LeVine Entertainment & Public Relations managing a team of over 25 staff across three departments.

Realizing that building agencies had become his career path, Kyle transitioned to CMW Media with the hopes to grow the agency to become a worldwide leader in PR and marketing for the Cannabis industry.

Christian Rodas serves as the Senior Photographer and producer for the CMW media team. Even as a kid, Christian would play with his mother’s old 35mm camera, often snapping out of focus photos of his brothers or the family dog. However, Christian had few aspirations of ever being a professional photographer. It wasn’t until he discovered a passion for story telling did he finally find what he assumes is his calling in life. After studying Journalism at San Diego State University, Christian worked as a photojournalist for the San Diego Union Tribune where he covered a variety of different news and sporting events. Christian brings the same dedication and work ethic to the stories he shares the CMW Media network.
