Pro Media Mag : First of all tell us about the start of your career?
Kanyon Merrill : I’ve been in love with capturing moments for as long as I can remember. Whether that was through pictures or video. When Instagram came out, I was about 13 years old. I loved posting pictures that were different than most. Not your typical “Mirror Picture.” I started getting noticed more within the past year and a half. It all started when I gained about 10K followers within the span of a couple months. I started seeing ads for Tik Tok late September and decided to download it. I didn’t think much about it until I posted my 2nd video, and it got over 5.6 million views. Within 2 months of downloading it I gained over 60,000 followers.
Pro Media Mag : Who or what inspired you to get into Content Creation?
Kanyon Merrill : I’ve always loved editing little montages, whether that was just a video of me playing sports, or even playing Call of Duty. When I started getting more serious about Content Creation, a person who really caught my attention is Logan Paul. The man is the king of manifesting your future, and his PodCast Impaulsive has given me perspective on a lot of things in life.

Pro Media Mag : What’s the best part of being a content creator?
Kanyon Merrill : Being able to express myself as a person, and to create a community of people who support each other. At the end of the day, as long as you’re providing value in people’s lives, then I consider that a win.
Pro Media Mag : Have you set any goals to achieve?
