D-Stef Media grew out of our founder’s passion for supporting causes important to her. Casey DeStefano is an accomplished director and producer with more than 20 years of experience. Casey traveled the world bringing stories to life for TV and film. She wanted to harness this power of documentary style storytelling to support the people and organizations that made a difference in her home state of New Jersey.
Ultimately, Casey combined her technical expertise telling stories through film with her experiential training diving deeper into the human condition as a twice certified leadership coach (CTI, CPCC) and Yale abecedarian to form D-Stef Media. D-Stef continues to grow, joining together a team of like-minded, consultative listeners and doers united in our belief that together we can help make our communities better through the work we do. Our combined experiences in entertainment, media, agencies, corporations and foundations enable us to bring fresh perspectives to each cause we partner with.
We are specialists in our fields. We are mentors and volunteers. Whether guiding women-owned businesses or helping nonprofits accelerate growth, the D-Stef team brings our collective talent and purpose to the work we do.
We embrace challenge and look forward to helping you with yours.
