I am AIR Media's Head of Product Innovation. For the last seven years as CEO of Multiply Bureau I have worked with many organizations building innovative platforms and measuring media impact. Highlights include NPR’s Live Sessions platform, a video collaboration of 20 radio stations with 9000+ videos of live band performances. This platform began as VuHaus.com, with five founding stations, and I led product from early ideation through its growth and acquisition by NPR. I also recently oversaw the launch of REACH, a browser-based VR editing tool, as an official selection of the Sundance Film Festival, and have led intensive innovation training for large multinational companies. In my impact practice I have worked closely with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and others to measure the impact of media grant making. At AIR I'm working on developing a new online training service and exploring the creation of a new platform for soliciting, assigning and syndicating audio stories.
REACH is the first web platform for creating, remixing, and sharing volumetric VR using real people and places. I worked closely with Emblematic Group founder and Wall Street Journal Innovator of the Year Nonny de la Pena on this VR editing platform which led to Emblematic Group winning Innovative Company of the Year at the VR Awards. REACH is currently in private alpha.
I have spent the last seven years working closely with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to measure the social impact of their media grant-making. This work has included working closely with media companies on measurement plans, conducting research in partnership with academic institutions, and performing portfolio analysis. I've also recently worked with the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative on their media measurement work.
