We are living in the Experience Age. More than ever, humans crave the opportunity to experience ourselves, others and the world around us, in increasingly profound and engaging ways.
My name is Dougie and ProjectFresh is the portfolio of my work. Since 2005, I’ve been working as a community organizer, event producer and experience consultant in Los Angeles, CA. I draw inspiration by twisting together the unexpected, and have cocreated a variety of fun projects including: Mindshare LA, mixing education with a party atmosphere; Syyn Labs, blending artists with engineers to spur creativity; The Tuxedo Travels, one of the earliest social media projects to combine charity with adventure; and The SmArt Gallery, sitting at the dynamic intersection where Science meets Art.
I also works with clients, ranging from Google to the Getty, to help them create memorable brand experiences. Recently I was hired by Cross Campus, a prominent Los Angeles coworking company to help them launch their 2nd and 3rd locations. Since then I have been in research mode for my next project and am currently exploring the future of community, especially as it relates to coworking, coliving and cocreative environments.

How do they impact the lives of the members and how do they interface (or choose not to interface) with the world around them. How does each variation shed light on the future of how we will live, work, [...]
