Tristan Gardner

Product Management

Background: Tristan was born in Charleston, South Carolina but was raised in a small town called Hampden, Maine. Tristan’s roles involve leading our long-term strategy, managing the production team, and advancing our studio’s capabilities. His connection with storytelling was sparked by millennial YouTube creators showing their experiences around the world through innovative videography and visual effects.

Personality: Tristan is an adrenaline junky with a strong focus on quality relationships and taking care of his friends, co-workers, and valued clients. When Tristan has free time, you can find him flying planes to the beach, kiteboarding in 30 mph winds, producing music after midnight, or surfing frustratingly-small summer saves. He is a spontaneous individual excited immediately by unique ideas and the opportunity to learn.

Fun Fact: Even though Tristan is in charge of Triad’s visual productions, he is (almost) legally blind in one eye, but not to worry.
