Co-Founder, Senior Producer
Craig Spinks is a seasoned video producer who specializes in veterinary video production and emotional marketing. The company he co-founded in 2017, Veteos, has quickly become the go-to resource for veterinary video production. It’s growing staff has worked with numerous veterinary practices and industry partners and has received twelve NAVC Vetty marketing awards, including “Best in Show – Nonprofit” in 2019.

From a very young age, Josh has been fascinated with all things media. With this passion he has gained experience in various fields, ranging from Sports Broadcast to the Veterinary Industry. Josh quickly found a desire to work and grow within the marketing spectrum, being able to use the tools of video and photography to help communicate with various audiences. As the Production Manager for Veteos, Josh looks forward to highlighting the many stories that the veterinary space has to offer. Along with his fiancé, Josh has 3 rescue dogs and a cat at home and enjoys hiking, biking, volleyball and any other outdoor activity that Colorado can offer.
Ally Specter has always been extremely fond of two things: her menagerie of pets during childhood and working in an environment with passionate individuals. With Ally’s work at Veteos, the two work hand in hand. Client satisfaction and employee engagement are at the center of everything Ally pursues. Coming from a Human Resources background, Ally brings a high level of organization and value for efficient systems and processes. Ally spends her free time watching anything Star Wars related, listening to Sam Cooke, and having fun in the beautiful Colorado sunshine.
Ben Spinks, MBA
Ben Spinks temporarily (or so he thought) entered the veterinary industry in his current capacity in 2004. He planned on helping a veterinary practice “run some numbers” over the summer to delay his inevitable entry into the corporate world. That one summer stretched longer than he anticipated, and he’s been the Hospital Administrator of Tipp City Veterinary Hospital ever since – now as a co-owner. Always fascinated with his cousin Craig’s video projects, he jumped at the chance to collaborate with Craig and form Veteos. Outside of his roles with TCVH and Veteos, Ben helps other veterinary hospitals and small businesses run more efficiently (Branchworth Consulting). Ben lives in Tipp City, Ohio with his two doodles, Claire and Finn, and his thoughtful cat, Oscar.
Video Producer, Motion Graphics Designer
Upon entering the world of commercial videography at 15, Colton was hooked by the desire to communicate effectively through visual storytelling. Upon graduating film school in Orlando, Florida, Colton has honed his skills in the feature film, TV, and corporate arenas, specializing in motion graphics as well as 2D and 3D animation. Colton joined the Veteos team in 2017, and along with his wife Grace, and daughter, Aerowynn (Yes, inspired by Lord of the Rings), loves the Colorado outdoors as well as the fine local food, and friends that Denver has to offer.
Josh’s interests have always centered around artistic expression, whether through music, painting, or video. While attending art school, he was properly introduced to video production, finding his passion. Since then he has created video work for local nonprofits and businesses with a focus on authentic storytelling. Josh is a proud pug parent and an all-around animal lover. Josh’s work with Veteos perfectly compliments his skill set and strengths, and he is excited to create compelling video work for the veterinary space.

After graduating from a small university in western Kansas with a degree in graphic design, Clay focused on animation motion design. Clay is excited by his work at Veteos and an important part of our team.
Nick Mathias, DVM
Co-Founder, Veterinary Advisor
Dr. Nick Mathias graduated from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007, but his roots in veterinary medicine and his connection to both Vetoes co-founders run deeper. Nick comes from a family of veterinarians and co-owns the Tipp City Veterinary Hospital with his father, brother, and Ben Spinks. His first official job in the industry was in the lodging facility at TCVH in 1998, alongside Ben. He first worked with Craig and Quadrid Productions in 2003, the year before entering veterinary school. Nick practiced medicine full time at TCVH until 2015 when he transitioned to a technical services/educational role with an animal health company. Nick’s professional passion is to help veterinarians become heroes to their patients, clients, and staff. He has followed this passion and speaks nationally on related topics. He lives near Washington, DC with his wife, three kids, and an energetic standard poodle.
