Why - what do we believe in

We believe effective communication is vital for any sized organization such as a non-profit, startup, e-commerce, or large corporation. As former public affairs professionals for the U.S. Department of Defense, we’ve seen first hand the importance of military organizations communicating with U.S. and international audiences.

WazaMedia gets its name from the Japanese word "waza (技)," meaning "technique." Andrew and J.R. have dedicated their lives to communication and professional development. WazaMedia officially became an LLC in the summer of 2013.
