New York Times Feature On Museum Hack

My company Museum Hack was featured in The New York Times!

It is a great article that gives an overview of renegade tour groups. We are attracting new audiences and making museums more fun.

Hi from Australia: My First Time on Live TV

I was interviewed on live TV and radio in Australia about Museum Hack for my speaking and presentation at the Victoria Creative State Summit.

My friend Tynan said this vest makes me look like I’m going to do magic at a kid’s birthday party.

I was a guest on a program called The Drum on ABC (Australian Broadcast Corporation). This is a national news program that talks about current affairs. It airs right at the primetime, meaning there were millions of people watching. What’s up Australia fam!

The TV show is filmed in Sydney. Since I’m in Melbourne, they connected me from their studio via a live video link.

Me being interviewed on The Drum on ABC, my first time on live television. I was nervous.

Searching For New Friends With Flyers in NYC

What would happen if I put up flyers around New York City to try and make new friends?

Here’s what happened.

National Trust for Historic Preservation Award

The National Trust for Historic Preservation included me on its inaugural 40 Under 40: People Saving Places list.

The list celebrates 40 movers and shakers — all age 40 and under — who are expanding our nation’s view of what it means to save places and tell America’s full history.
