#52: Jacob Jolibois - A conversation on social good, redesigning education and emerging tech
6 days ago
In this episode, the Exhibitions Manager for the Louisiana Arts and Science Museum and a previous guest, Rodneyna Hart, turns the tables to interview the voice behind altBR — Jacob Jolibois. Jacob is the co-founder and host of altBR but this social good podcast is just his passion project. By day, he's the Director of Digital Strategy at MESH, a full-service marketing and advertising agency based in Baton Rouge. He’s worked with both local and national brands to develop strategy and create content across a variety of mediums including websites, mobile apps, social media and email marketing, video, photography and podcasting. Though it’s often hard to distinguish his work from his play, on his “off-hours” he's authored a couple of books, backpacked across 18 countries, served on a couple of boards, spoken at a variety of creative conferences including Web Summit and CROP, written 300+ blog posts on creative living, built a side project on minimalism and won awards for his family's creative annual Christmas Cards. Oh, and he's training in the art of salsa dancing!
