The Team

Tori Stuart

Evoke Multimedia’s founder, Tori Stuart, has an unusual background. Her 20+ years of strategic and operational business experience combined with that of a professional photographer’s trained eye enable her to speak the language of both business and art resulting in evocative multimedia productions. Her experiences make her uniquely suited to tease out and edit a high impact story of photographs, video, and NPR-styled audio interviews.

Before Evoke Multimedia, Stuart founded and ran Zoe Foods, a natural foods manufacturer that developed, marketed, and sold cereals and bars throughout the U.S. Prior to that she worked for a boutique consulting firm, an offshoot of Bain & Company, whose sole focus was the implementation of strategic change. At Grey Advertising and J. Walter Thompson, she managed accounts such as Kool-Aid and Ragu. Stuart earned her B.A. from Brown University, an MBA with honors from Boston University, and completed the Photography Program at Boston University’s Center for Digital Imaging Arts. She lives outside Boston, MA with her husband, two daughters, two dogs, and 19 chickens.

Shawn Read

Shawn Read has been telling stories since elementary school, first with words and a typewriter, and now with photographs and Final Cut Pro. He earned his B.A. in English Literature from the University of Florida and moved to Okayama, Japan, where he lived for eleven years. As an English teacher in Japan for over a decade, Shawn taught all age groups from toddlers to the elderly. He taught in the public school system, at Kurashiki University of Science & the Arts, and with AEON and ECC, two of the largest conversation schools in the country. During that time he got married in a Samurai garden, studied Zen, and picked up both the travel and photography bugs. He and his wife moved back to the states so that he could earn a Certificate in Photography from Boston University’s Center for Digital Imaging Arts, where he now works as an Instructor. He shoots video, portraits, corporate headshots, and weddings at his own studio, L.B. Read Photography.
