Meet the Riveo Creative Team
CEO & Founder
Elin first became interested in video production back in college when she enrolled in a class that was led by a female documentary filmmaker.
After graduating Elin moved abroad and worked for five years in Prague, in radio, film and television. That foundation led her to a move to Los Angeles, and finally to starting Riveo Creative (formerly White Knight Productions) in 2009.
Still strongly interested in storytelling, Elin believes in a results-driven focus, and integrates her skills to help clients make informed decisions, both creatively and strategically. With over 20 years of experience in all aspects of video production, project management, strategic planning, and business development, Elin enjoys working closely with business owners and leaders as an extension of their team.
