The Team

Justin Palmer Tompkins

Founder of Briarpatch. The gratification comes in the doing, not in the results. Like Steve McQueen, I would rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than any city on earth; but I need to have a reason why I’m doing something, otherwise I’m lost. We are all impaled by man’s conditioning; I cannot work in an environment where there is a stiff hierarchy. I am close to Mother Nature, now beginning to be able to appreciate the beauty with which she is endowed.


I have a passion for public health, personal blogging, and eating dessert. I also enjoy embarrassing my company in public while I shamelessly take pictures of my food. I like sharing my stories, but equally enjoy reading the stories of others. Everyone has a story to tell and I seek to encourage others to share theirs.

Matt Cristobal

Orlando creative. Always striving to push others into the direction I would want to see myself in. Currently at a disposition of growth, always traveling, always learning. Trying to tell my story though artistic expression.

Pete King

Promo Producer News4JAX / Chinese finger trap technician / Worship leader / Lover of human beings.
