Who runs Humaginarium? Are they founders? Leaders? Executives? Directors? An operating committee? These words say something about the actual team, but not enough. A much better word is Fellowship.
Fellowship is more than working together. It connotes camaraderie and shared values, trust, style, mutual respect, and synergy wherein the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Humaginarium is a Fellowship.
Like the Fellowship of the Ring, our cohort is on a risky quest. Like the Taliesin Fellowship, we’re devoted to learning. Here’s a roll call.
- Dave Walker is our chief technical officer. He’s a software engineer and program manager, with decades in the video game industry. Dave makes stuff.
- Ramiro Atristain is our chief financial officer. He’s an analyst and planner, with decades in investment and commercial banking. Ramiro counts stuff.
- Alan Klevens is our chief commercial officer. He’s a brand builder, with decades in biotech innovation including three successful exits. Alan pitches stuff.
- Bob Becker is our chief executive officer. He’s a scholar and ideologist, with decades in teaching and instructional systems design. Bob invents stuff.
In the realms we inhabit – entertainment, science, health, education – many see things and ask “Why?” We dream things that never were and ask “Why not?”
We also say (figuratively) that our Fellowship is on a road to Mordor. Not the garrison of trolls and orcs, but a real world armory of unhealthy lifestyles, diseased bodies, puzzled minds, and broken hearts. Our mission is not to join hordes of vendors selling trinkets and gadgets outside the walls of that armory, but to tear down the walls, overcome what’s inside, and help people enjoy more of their birthright. Wellness, well-being, longevity, and happiness.
