Wyatt is a thinker, a creator, and a do-er. With a BA in philosophy, Wyatt critically evaluates challenges to find the best, most fitting and ethical solutions available. Not afraid to ask difficult questions and consider unconventional answers, Wyatt has built a career that challenges not only himself but those around him to always demand better.
Being a creative type, Wyatt is a leader in Boise's social media and technology scene. He co-founded Pronetos, a social network for scholars, in early 2007 before Facebook was a household name (and before it opened its API, if the reader pays attention to that sort of thing). Wyatt is an avid Twitter user, tweeting about tech gadgets, Idaho, marketing, news, economic development, and general mundanity. Wyatt understands that social media is a conversation, not an avenue of one-way messaging. He has been able to engage with thought leaders, champions and critics to participate in the conversations his products create, not to control them but to influence them.
Wyatt's favorite saying comes from Qoheleth, "He who watches the wind does not sow; he who looks at the clouds does not reap." No one ever changed the world by wishing, so Wyatt is a do-er. Ignite Boise and Beer & Blog Boise came to pass by Wyatt's curiosity seeking form. Getting creative people into a shared space is never a bad thing; all Wyatt had to do was invite them, but that is the key step between wishing and doing. Ignite Boise was always a good idea, but Wyatt put wheels on the idea and got it done (with a talented team of partners, of course!). Now, Ignite is the city's premier free, creative event, filling the Egyptian Theater several times a year.
Wyatt has lots of energy, talent and passion. If nothing else, drop him a line to have coffee or beer. Maybe he's a good fit for your organization; maybe he's not. But he loves coffee, beer and conversation either way.
