Pipestone Media Solutions
Pipestone Media Solutions mission is to support both startup and small businesses in wise planning and use of valued time and resources.
Through free resources; cluster workshops and professional consultations and media production, I provide tools for consumers direct access to your business. This access builds trust, confidence and consumer loyalty for a growing business.
Mom & Pop and startup businesses in their first two years of operation experience growth differently. This is a time when creativity is high and resources and time are limited. Understanding how to navigate the first years involves many tasks. Eliminating pressures to perform on social media is a huge distinction in my media strategy. From my own experiences, I designed support guides, social media assessments and networking. An added benefit is as business grows, so does the health and wellness of communities.
Startups grow into small businesses, work hard through challenges; increase and improved products; gain a deeper appreciation and understanding of their customers and envision audiences they can reach and serve.
When startups have met their first two years of growth, it's time to reassess next steps. By now you can see your growth, investment and lessons learned. It is time to revise your growth plan to a business plan. Included in this is an assessment of how you would like to engage more fully in a marketing plan that can include social media. I can help you professionally by creating a professionally produced video-story.
As a storyteller and professional media producer, I create a unique video-story package to reach your consumers with immediate and direct access to your business and story on your website. If you need support inputting images text, and an online store, we can discuss this as well.

Cynthia J. Gomez
Hello, I am Cynthia Gomez, Native New Mexican, born and raised in the heart of Albuquerque's Old Town. My family heritage is the product of intergenerational Native American and Hispano cultures, languages and places. In my mother's words, "We've always been from here." These guiding words helped me understand my deep connection and commitment to this land, the diverse people and cultures. Family and community influence my life as a social worker, educator and facilitator of other people's stories.
I understand how shairng stories build, reinforce and maintain health, identity and prosperity of communities. To continue with my storytelling passion, I draw from my childhood pasttime of listening to stories; as a collector and writer of oral history I was able to piece together many community stories; leading me to documentary video and film production; volunteering with public television and radio as a producer and host. I've designed Pipestone Media Solutions to support community health, economic health and prosperity.
What makes me qualified and unique to create your video-story are decades of gathering individual and community oral histories, storytelling and producing award winning documentary films.
I invite you, to call on me, to explore how our work can support your goals.
Thank you, Cynthia Gomez
Pipestone Media Solutions is a
New Mexican Story
Storytelling is a central to New Mexico’s culture and traditions, and central to Pipestone Media Solutions mission.
As a child I carefully observed and listened to my father as he met someone for the first time. He did four things: looked into their eyes, gave his name, shook their hand, then proceeded to name his family village, Pueblitos.
His introduction story established his relationship to place and credibility as an honorable and trustworthy person. By sharing his origin story, my father left a personable, honest, and trustworthy impression. It was the way things were done to establish trust.
Introductions are brief, impactful stories that nurture relationships and create opportunity.
As a young person and student, I enjoyed sitting with elders, listening and recording their stories. Soon I could weave together a community history that when presented back to them, renewed whole communities, reconnected generations and revived their shared values.
As an educator my passion for teaching through storytelling empowered a healthy and prosperous community. I believe a strong community is a reflection of how we conduct business, express respect and offer mutual support for one another, this is part of our story
Through public radio and television, photography and video I was able to expanded my craft in how I captured and retold stories. In 2008, I nudged my way into producing the 2012 award winning documentary film, Land Water People Time by volunteering my knowledge of photography for the National Latino Independent Producers Academy. It opened doors to develop my filmmaking skills.
Sharing stories is a long standing tradition across New Mexico, equally relevant today as we introduce our businesses to new audiences.
Today I continue to knock on doors, meet people face to face and explain how I can help them tell their stories.
Pipestone Media Solutions offers more than a video or social media production, we have expanded to embrace the whole of storytelling as educational tools to actively heal and build wellness into people's lives.
I look forward to working with you and hearing your story.
