In 2021 I founded MetaMODE as the first hybrid experience agency in the metaverse - Sharing my extensive experience on web3, blockchain, NFTs, game engines, and immersive experiences to drive strategy and execution of metaversal engagement. I have Chaired the MFA in Video for Performance at California Institute for the Arts; have lectured or been in Residency at Yale University School of Theater, North Carolina School for the Arts, the Banff Centre, and have led numerous master classes and retreat/workshops in experiential creative and brand strategy. Book me to speak at your event or conduct a workshop on: Web3, NFTs, the Metaverse, the business of creative, creativity in leadership, brand activations, XR/AR/VR, brand strategy, live spectacle, and content creation. I apply the lessons and experience of my creative practice to advising and collaborating with leaders from other industries. I am currently a coach in Seth Godin's altMBA program, and I can provide you coaching or consulting on decision making, mindset, challenge discovery, and creative or strategic visioning. I believe that magic is real.
