AlphaVoice combines a Netflix-like video channel, a Mailchimp-like email sending platform, and an ApolloData-like lead database. Together they create a network effect where the more data and emails sent, the more traffic is driven to the AlphaVoice site and the more people learn about our offering. New clients find out about our services through the actions of our current clients allowing us to provide services to our clients at a fraction of the traditional cost because our product is our viral marketing campaign.
Justin Beiber helped YouTube explode. The majority of creators think “Because Usher found Justin on YouTube and helped him become famous, I should be on YouTube so I also have a chance at being successful.” We worked to apply the same strategy to our video platform. I helped interview over 250 blockchain startups and taught them how to tell their story in an easy to digest narrative. We then took over marketing campaigns for a couple companies. We believed that AlphaVoice would succeed if one massively successful blockchain company attributed their marketing successes to our technology.
I traveled across the United States interviewing founders, employees, and property managers about Meridio’s tokenized real estate concept. I set up a marketing funnel to sell their tokenized assets through targeted video-email campaigns, funneled into a webinar, and closed with a one-on-one sales call. The campaign never launched due to a restructuring of the company on the scheduled week of launch.
My twin brother is the Amazon Alexa designer & developer. With his help, I designed an Amazon Alexa powered vending machine, A rumba that plays marco-polo with kids, and a number of other “stunts” to attract an audience and help him sell more voice contracts.
It’s hard to sell the value of video to companies without a champion who wants to be on camera. In order to jumpstart sales conversations with clients around the right marketing techniques, I’ve created multiple video series teaching markers how to quickly and cost effectively include video production in their companies marketing plan.
My team set out to solve the problem of 40,000+ square foot offices at tech giants like Genentech where employees can sit wherever they like. Problems arise around finding your team members, applying ergonomic preferences to a different location each day, etc…
My team designed and built a shock resistant computer to sit inside exploding platforms used when airdropping heavy machinery like humvees. The sensor array was built to qualify new exploding platform designs by logging air pressure and acceleration during impact.
Sophomore year of college I convinced a grant department to give me $5000 to design a quadcopter that would descend on its own into a mineshaft and locate lost miners. I had limited programming experience and used the project as a self led course in robotics.
Freshman year of college I worked in a ME lab designing a capacitive sensor used to measure the alignment of a machine that manufactures brain implants. The machine presses micron deep ridges into thin steel plates. The machine’s distortion is measured to determine if the ridges are the correct depth.
I went to college to learn robotics. I majored in Mechanical Engineering, though I fufilled all the requirements for Electrical Engineering as well … since Universities are a business, I only got to choose 1.
Growing up, my next door neighbor was a technical glass blower. He built oxygen detectors for hospitals with his hands, among other projects. I worked with him to design a Helium Neon laser, which he built. I sourced the correct components from a professor at the University of Pennsylvania & approached a local neon sign shop to fill it with gas.
I worked with landscape architects, contractors, and my community to reimagine a neglected stretch of hill in the center of my town. I designed the hillside, raised $3000 and organized 38 volunteers over 2 days. A decade later, the hillside continues to flourish and is maintained by the local garden club.
I can’t play an instrument while I sing, so I fill the space with words. I’m not a rapper, but I appreciate stringing together stories and ideas in quick succession, listen closely, listen again, you may not understand the first time, that’s okay. Emotional situations inspire the best art.
