Nate Anderson | Co-Founder
Nate Anderson, a native Minnesotan, was born and raised in Excelsior Minnesota where he still resides today with his wife Beth. Nate is a video and still photographer who works as a photojournalist at KARE11 Television. Starting out as an unpaid intern, Nate has now been with NBC’s number one news station in the Twin Cities for over seventeen years. Occasionally, you can catch Nate and his antics on KARE 11 Sunrise, causing mischief behind his video camera. And chances are, you have seen Nate working behind the camera at some of Minnesota's professional sporting events.
At six foot eight inches tall, he is an easy mark to spot.
An avid hockey player since age eight, Nate grew up playing goalie. Being a very tall kid, his feet grew so large that he had a hard time finding a skates to fit. Several years ago Bauer custom designed a custom goalie skate to accommodate Nate’s amply-sized foot. At the time, Bauer claimed it was the largest goalie skate they had ever produced. ( If you want to know the size of that skate, you will have to ask Nate himself, he would love to tell you the story.) Nate was a full-framed goalie before it was fashionable; obviously the NHL and the Wild soon realized bigger is better in the crease!
Nate’s passion for hockey landed him a job with The State of Hockey’s own Minnesota Wild. He has been shooting home games and working in the control room for the Minnesota Wild since 2003. In 2014, Nate joined the Minnesota Vikings operating a Steadicam on the field and dodging players on the sidelines and in the end zone. You may have also find Nate under the basket at a Minnesota Timber Wolves games and various University of Minnesota Golden Gophers sporting events.
Nate’s inspiration and passion for journalism stems from a burning desire to tell stories and capture authentic moments. He claims his work as a personal reflection of himself, an art form, and something he can unapologetically make his own.
