Podcast Conversation with Creative Tech Entrepreneur Matt Stripplehoff

In this episode I interview a gentleman I've had the great priviledge of meeting and getting to know quite recently - Matt Stripplehoff.  We met through our mutual friend Marc Macaluso after a MeetUp in which Matt was the guest speaker.  Listen for the part where he tells about the band he was in!

Matt Strippelhoff, Partner and CEO at Red Hawk Technologies, is an artist, technologist, serial entrepreneur, husband and a proud father of two. He moved from a small town in central Kentucky to attend the Art Academy of Cincinnati, where he met his soul mate and graduated with a BFA in 1993.

After working as an illustrator and graphic designer for several years, he started his first business and ultimately merged with an Advertising Agency in Cincinnati. He exited that partnership several years later to co-found Red Hawk Technologies in 2008, a custom software development company producing revenue generating solutions for mid-market clientele.

During much of this time he was also co-writing, recording and performing original music with his band Grace in Gravity, which won a CAMMY Award and performed at Riverbend as the opening act for Lilith Fair in 1999. Matt has also served on the Board of Directors of the Cincinnati Chapter of the Entrepreneurs Organization, where he is still an active member today.  


Podcast Conversation with Film Maker David Markey

In this episode I interview my bud David Markey, a film maker who I met in Cincinnati and now lives in Boston.  

David started drawing as a kid, signing up for every class possible, and now, after playing bass in Mad Anthony among other creative endeavors, he’s a film maker who innovates, connects, sparks wonder, and solves problems.

A native of Cincinnati, Ohio now living in Boston, David and I met a few years ago while doing a volunteer project for the United Way.  I got to know him as a generous, always ready to roll guy with a big heart and smile and we’ve been friends ever since.

Inspired by museums, galleries, bookstores and travel, he has freelanced on Hollywood blockbusters and now works exploring VR, touchscreen kiosks, floating video, and facial recognition.
