Our intrinsic humanity craves personal experience. We flourish when we are free to experience ourselves, others and the world around us in increasingly profound ways. And today the amount of ways we can achieve this is unprecedented. Welcome to the Experience Age.
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 to stoke inspiration; 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 work 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 on researching the future of community. What sort of novel environments will allow us to LIVE, WORK and CREATE together as never before imagined?
