Name : Brian 'Big Bear' Karanja
Location : Boston, MA
Focus : Operations, Technology, Media Management
Background : I was working as freelance videographer for a number of nightlife firms before heading over to Nairobi, Kenya to further my career as a DJ and a filmmaker. There, I worked with the country's leading radio station and worked on a number of projects for television and continued to work as a freelance filmmaker; directing videos for musicians such as M.I. and Fally Ipupa. During my tenure in Nairobi I created the city's best Thursday night after-work destinations called "Office Break-Out".
Vision : I have had the pleasure of traveling to numerous cities throughout the world and find myself comparing them to Boston. One thing I keep finding is that Boston has the potential to be one of the cultural mecca of not only the US but of the world. It has one of the most vibrant and diverse populations.
