Currently I live in Richmond, VA. In my opinion RVA is one of the most amazing cities in America, if you need help being convinced fly down and I’ll show you why.
While I worked at The Martin Agency I helped to create some amazing experiences with my fellow group of bandits in our lab. We’ve got everything from RC cars to CNC routers and a big red cabinet that would make any nerd drool.
I also teach at VCU as an adjunct professor. Their I’m helping to create more folks like me who see advertising a little differently.
In November of 2014 I helped my students at the VCU Brandcenter create a Interactive See-Saw experience for the St. Christophers Leadership Conference.
During the Spring and Summer of 2014 I was invited to speak at a few amazing companies across Richmond, including Capital One, The Frontier Project, and at the Y Richmond Workforce Readiness Summit hosted by Altria. I also spoke at William & Mary and James River High School.
In April of 2014 I partnered with TEDxRVA to create an interactive installation for the theater in which audience members were invited into a voting booth to select which topics from the day were important to them and their votes visualized as a color changing cloud next to the stage.
In the Fall of 2013 I collaborated with a group of Richmond artists to create an interactive art mural as part of the RVA Street Art Festival. The Light of Human Kindness wall had both an online interactive component as well as an in person experience. Visitors could hold hands and connect to conductive paint panels on the mural to trigger animations on the 1000 LED wall.
In 2012, I finished my masters degree at the VCU Brandcenter, a program recognized as America's number one graduate school in advertising and marketing and known for it's intensity and toughness.
In the Spring of 2012, in partnership with GOOD magazine and it's GOOD Ideas for Cities program, I co-led a team that presented ideas to the city of Richmond to help accelerate small businesses starting up near the James River.
While I attended the Brandcenter, I participated in a few hackathons for Spotify, product managing my team to develop working prototypes of music apps in 48 hours.
In 2011, I co-led a team of Richmond creatives to pull off the first RVA Zombie Film Festival, an effort to raise awareness and money to benefit our local icon, The Byrd Theatre.
My first year at grad school I co-led my classmates of creative technologists to build a website for organizing panel discussions at the 2011 SXSW interactive festival, the site became Panelizr and went from concept to beta in 10 days.
