believe the hype


we are bib media

Sprouted from the experienced Kenton Young and Joe Mauceri, Born in Brooklyn Media is a full-service production company. Founded with the same principles that made Brooklyn so popular, BIB Media values and employs the four H's to all of our clients’ needs.

1. Heart


2. Hustle

Like most people born in Brooklyn, we have a sense of pride in everything we do. We want our work to be something that both we and our clients can be proud to share with others.

3. Honesty 

There’s no B.S. in Brooklyn! Well, there is, but here you get called on it. At BIB Media, we aren’t a bunch of “Yes People” who are going to tell you what you want to hear. We are going to tell you what you need to know to produce the best product. We believe in authenticity because real stories are the ones that have the biggest impact.

Brooklyn may be hot and trendy now, but it was built on a blue-collar work ethic. We bring that attitude to every job we do.

4. Hospitality 

We welcome everyone to our neighborhood; our business is personal. We value relationships and genuinely helping others. No matter how big or small the task, we want our clients to know we have their back. When you work with us, you become part of the BIB family.

To help you tell your story, we offer a range of media services including, video production, media training, website design, script development, website and digital media management, social media management, graphic design/logo design, audio editing services, media and production consulting, equipment rental, and podcast suite rentals.


BIB Media is a MWBE certified, full-service media company offering a range of media services that will help you tell your story with pride, including...

Leslie King

Leslie is of the mindset that stories are what bring people together. Her love to travel and tell interesting stories brought her to some exciting places. Before joining Team BIB, Leslie worked on production teams in Florence, Italy and Sydney, Australia. While abroad she collaborated with fellow entrepreneurs in the industry to write, edit and shoot content for local television and digital platforms.

As a student, Leslie co-founded the first human-interest documentary series at her alma mater, Syracuse University. The success of the series won she and her co-founder the Best Executive Producer Team award and local recognition.

Leslie is a co-owner of BIB Media. She is happy to bring her talents to Brooklyn and work in one of the most exciting cities in the world.



John Bantivoglio

John loves to travel and use his adventures to draw inspiration in his work. From studying in Columbia, South Carolina, to Philadelphia and even Madrid, John uses his experiences to gain culture and knowledge and incorporate that into his writing and filming. Currently, John interns at Born in Brooklyn Media, as well as Sweet 180 talent management in New York City.

Before realizing his passion for media, John was a business student at the University of South Carolina. At his current university, Temple, John used his first directing opportunity to film a parody commercial and earned the best short video award.


Haruka Minami

Haruka is a student from Japan studying media and communications at NYU. She spent her childhood in Connecticut and Tokyo and was exposed to two different cultures of media. She is now interested in marketing films or other entertainment content. She moved from Tokyo to NYC to study marketing, film, and journalism in a globalized environment. She loves NYC, but one thing she misses about Tokyo is the crisp clean train that is never late. At school she is a writer for two online magazines and a marketing coordinator for a student-run late night talk show. She loves watching short independent films on YouTube/Kanopy or staring at strangers’ dogs in Washington Square Park in her free time.


Ryan Charland

Ryan’s approach to storytelling is guided by curiosity. After studying biology, English, and film at Providence College, he earned a master's degree in television, radio, and film at Syracuse University that prepared him to tackle a variety of subjects, genres, and styles in his work. From health department PSAs to surreal character studies, his cinematic portfolio is full of exploration. He recently moved to Brooklyn from Upstate to begin a new adventure at Born in Brooklyn Media, where he collaborates with the team to brainstorm, produce, film, and edit short-form content for clients throughout New York City.
