Hailing from a big family who love sports in a small town, Spencer was born and raised in Farmington, Utah. Surrounded by ambition, Spencer instantly made a change by moving to the Netherlands at age 18 to focus on volunteer work and to start understanding different cultures. During his time there he also learned to speak Dutch fluently! After moving back to the states two years later Spencer instantly dove into the working atmosphere to learn customer relationships, sales, marketing, media, and the arts. Spencer contributes to a personal blog often! Check it out here. With a growing passion for people, photography, and media, Spencer started working with Somnu Medias in 2020 to further his efforts to improving businesses visually, creatively, and with constant innovation.

Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, Hannah grew up surrounded by the Wasatch Mountains. With the influence of the great outdoors, her weekends were always spent skiing, hiking, biking and climbing. Hannah grew a great appreciation for the environment and pursued a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Utah studying Environmental Sustainability. Her experience in her studies has pushed her to work with multiple environmental conservation non-profits across multiple states. Working with people and the environment, creating public awareness, and creatively sharing this type of work is how Hannah got started with Somnu Medias in early 2021.
