Michael McNamara is a 6th generation Texan with a love for hunting, fishing, and the beautiful ranch lands of this great state. He attended Texas Tech where he majored in Business Management. In 2013, Michael returned to his hometown of Austin, where he began a career in healthcare sales. During the early years of his career, Michael entertained his creative and entrepreneurial sides by producing videos for a variety of industries on weekends and evenings. Later, he served as Director of Commercial Business Strategy at a healthcare data analytics company that specialized in identifying fraud, waste, and abuse. The demand for Michael's video production skills continued to grow, leading him to start his own video production company, Red Wolf Cinema. As the company grew, he found a niche interest in ranch real estate, filming and photographing farms and ranches across Texas. Since 2015, Michael has visited and filmed some of the most unique ranches in the state. He has even curated his own social media following through his account, “Wild Texas Outdoors”, which showcases hunting, fishing, and cooking episodes, which he has produced. Michael is grateful to God for his blessings and gives back to his community in many ways. He coached football at his high school alma mater, St. Michael’s Catholic Academy, where as a high school quarterback, Michael received the Austin American Statesman, “Built Ford Tough” award. He has partnered with Project Charley, a non-profit that provides neurological rehabilitation resources to children and the Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit that offers a variety of programs for wounded veterans and active duty service members of the U.S. military.
