About Us

sugar beach digital founders
Sugar Beach Digital was founded by two geniuses in the creative field of digital marketing.

Our co-founders, Jennifer Cascardo and Kenny Heidt, have a combined business experience of over fifty years. They pursued separate business ventures in their early careers, having each worked with major companies all over the United States. They formed Sugar Beach Digital in April of 2014 and accomplished all of their initial goals within three years. Now they are continuing to grow and expand their global filmmaking and business goals.

Our video production department has won Telly Awards for commercial and web based video productions. Our short film called Daffodil is available on Amazon Prime. Our short documentary Christian's Second Shot played in film festivals across the country and our current short documentary It Started With The Heart is playing in film festivals and we are raising funds to complete the feature length version.
