120: A Simple Understanding That Comes With Major Rewards with Tim Feess
Real Business Real Lives
Today I speak with Tim Feess, Co-Founder and CEO of GNARBOX. Tim once held the belief that the volume and velocity of his thinking were responsible for his success in business. In reality, the speed of his mind only created more distortion and clutter. Tim shares about the numerous rewards that come with a calm mind, where he still gets “caught up”, and the transformative power of listening. Tim Feess is Co-Founder and CEO of GNARBOX, a technology company based in Los Angeles that builds data management computers for a variety of applications. He is passionate about exploring nature, technology, and the human experience.

The Darkroom Podcast
In this episode of The Darkroom Podcast we spoke with GNARBOX CEO, Tim Feess. GNARBOX builds rugged backup devices for professional photographers and filmmakers, creating the most reliable and secure process for backing up files. Creators ranging from professional photographers to production crews use the GNARBOX to streamline their file management while they’re in the field, on the go or in the studio. The concept of GNARBOX was born when Tim and his Co-founder Will Africano wanted to find a way to simplify the uploading and management of their GoPro videos. With almost no hardware or software experience, Tim and Will prototyped the first version of GNARBOX with a lean team, launching a massively successful Kickstarter. GNARBOX now has its eyes on both the production world and related industries that have the same pain point of getting files off devices, processed and uploaded online. This includes developing an SDK that will allow enterprise customers to customize their data management workflow by deploying custom applications to the GNARBOX hardware. We get to hear Tim’s perspective on the future of work post COVID-19, and the hardware/software needs of a modern workforce. In a world where travel is difficult and remote work has become more prevalent, the need for a fast and secure file management device has never been more needed. Enjoy!
