Why we are Here?

Founded by Jonathan and Brandy Williams, OakThorn is centered to assist communities, small businesses, governments, and individuals that need help protecting themselves, or finding the facts.

Who We Are?

Oak Thorn, created in 2021, was named after the stag Eikþyrnir, or in Norse, Oak Thorny. Eikþyrnir, according to Norse Mythology, was a stag that stood upon Valhalla and watched over the majestic hall. It would then resonate into the plan of OakThorn today.
