Jordan Smith - Director of Business Development
Over the past two years, I have built relationships with clients by getting them to think about their business in a different way. I like helping them improve on things that they may not have considered otherwise. My ultimate goal is just to make a difference in their company. I take every opportunity to offer them a new perspective on their IT or marketing costs to help grow their business.
Each of my clients is a unique snowflake that is very special to me. I am there to listen to their company’s problems and to talk through their personal struggles. I make it my job is to exceed their expectations on a daily basis. My hope is that my work reflects how much I care about their success.
My personal passions change a lot, but overall I enjoy educating myself on anything that I knew very little about before. One week it may be lucid dreaming, the next it may be metropolitan infrastructure. I’m kind of ADD like that. I like talking about pretty much everything, so join in on the conversation!
First and foremost, I am a people person that is always interested in hearing other people's story and finding creative solutions. That trait has helped me form great partnerships with tons of businesses and help them to think outside the box about how to operate and/or market their organization.

Phillip Young - President
Before I started Drone to Design, I spent the past 5 years working for Apple as a tier 2 technician and 2 years as a Project Manager for iProv, LLC. I have over 15 years of experience in videography, photography and design.
I began flying drones in 2012 and have logged hundreds of hours of flight time working with everything from real estate and commercial cinematography to agriculture and Construction industry applications implementing the newest UAV technology to provide safer and more accurate data at a fraction of the time it would take with traditional methods.
I am a strong believer in helping out where ever I can when working as part of a team. I thrive when coming up with creative solutions and fostering new partnerships.
RJ Martino - CEO
As a licensed attorney and real estate professional, I've been fascinated with the development of drone technology and the development of the FAA regulations.
Although I may spend a lot of time keeping up to date with regulation changes, my initial interest started the moment I flew my first drone in 2012.
I knew it was a business I wanted to help develop when my team attached a scanning device to an existing drone and instantaneously created a 3D model of a structure. The results were game changing.
In the last two years, I've seen our team scan real estate projects using a UAS in a fraction of the time that it would take using traditional technology. I've seen our team develop 3D models that are more precise than models using traditional technology.
Each day, I wake up wanting to show-and-tell these UAS capabilities to the entire world. Because, as we educate the world about the capabilities, we will see more adoption of these tools. And as we adopt the UAS tools, the entire industry will benefit from the reduction of labor costs and the increased accuracy of real estate, landscapes, and structures.
None of our clients came to us convinced that this was the solution of the future. They came to us with an interest in learning how drones may change their business. But, after they see what we're doing in their industry, they're immediately changed forever.
The best part of my job is getting to be part of an initial drone presentation and getting to watch the "lightbulb moment" when customers see the drone in action. The moment when the customer gets it. The moment when they realize that drones are going to completely change their industry.
