INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., October 12, 2007 -- Recent Indiana University School of Informatics graduate Alex Baker and his business partner, Joshua Starr have founded a new free photo and video posting website called FileHurricane.  Baker graduated from IUPUI in May 2007 with a Bachelors of Science in Media Arts and Science from Indiana University and a Certificate of Applied Computer Science from Purdue University.

“IUPUI was a great place for me to go to college.  I got to attend classes, get a degree and a certificate from two universities, work full time, participate in its Greek system as a past president of Tau Kappa Epsilon, as well as start a consulting business on the side.  With IUPUI being downtown Indianapolis and so close to everything, I was able to take advantage of all that Indianapolis could offer,” says Baker.

Joshua Starr, one of FileHurricane’s co-founders describes the website as, “a community driven photo and video tagging, sharing, and rating site.”

“The site is a hybrid of photo and video sites currently out there, such as Photobucket and YouTube.  People are allowed to upload images and video for free and share them however they want,” says Baker, Chief Executive Officer of Infinistorm LLC and co-founder of FileHurricane.  “Each week is exciting with FileHurricane.com; we introduce new features that truly bring a lot more to each user experience.”

FileHurricane.com was created by the IT consulting firm, Infinistorm LLC.  Infinistorm LLC was started in January 2007.  Currently, FileHurricane.com has a Halloween photo contest that they are sponsoring.  For uploading Halloween pictures, they are offering a cash prize for the best costume, best jack o’ lantern, and best overall Halloween picture.
