Terry Parrish is the former Chair of transcenDANCE’s Board of Directors and founder/owner of emota, a video production company in San Diego.
After taking an unconventional path through art, design, consulting and business, Terry finds himself as a co-founder of one of the most promising video agencies in San Diego specializing in branded entertainment. His love of story and art goes as far back as age 5, when he had to explain to his parents where the pictures on the walls – colored in crayon – came from. He’s been trying to explain himself ever since. To his amazement, clients started paying him and his cohorts to tell beautiful and authentic stories. Some of those clients are The Acura Classic, AIDSWalk San Diego, The American Red Cross, The Alzheimer’s Association, The Blanchard Companies, Charlotte Russe, Dockers, Eaton, Foresters, Levi’s, Mama’s Kitchen, NIK Software, Qualcomm, SDGE and Tempur-pedic.
“I am so grateful for the path I have been able to take in my life and career. It has led me to this point, where I am able to work alongside the amazing teaching and student artists at transcenDANCE. This youth arts project truly embodies all that I have experienced in my life as an artist – the power of change, to heal and share. It feels like family.”
