Since then, he graduated with an Innovation in Society degree from the College of Global Futures at Arizona State University. He is the Founder of the newly created online media, called Using Foresight, where he is set to explore and showcase how the world thinks about our or their future(s) in different engaging ways. To help democratize futures thinking even further, and bridge the general public with the foresight/futures community. He also co-organizes events relating to speculative design and strategic foresight for the Speculative Futures Phoenix Chapter, and is volunteering his time as a Community Builder for Futures Space, a digital community for people who are working or interested in the futures/foresight field.
