Masters in Motion: Amazing Additions

We fly out to Austin tomorrow. Our heads are spinning. We were already feeling great about the insane amount of talent between educators,staff and this years participants. We are beyond excited and the good news just keeps rolling in. We are happy to announce that in addition to the already stellar line up we are announcing two special guests.

Khalid Mohtaseb

Khalid was one of the speakers at last year’s event and we are so glad to have him back in Austin this year. We have had the pleasure of working with him and the exceptionally talented team at Variable over the last year. They have done work for Nike, Coca-Cola, National Geographic, MTV, Pennzoil, and Tiffany and Co. to name a few. His passion is contagious and having him at the event again is going to be amazing. If you’re not familiar with any of his work check out this short, Khalid and the Variable team produced.
