An exciting new virtual reality venture from the minds behind Bot & Dolly. Stay tuned…
Voice of a Chatbot
“We want you to be the voice of our chatbot.” Now that’s not something you hear every day. But eBay said it, and I heard it, and thus ShopBot was born.
Developing the voice of eBay’s Messenger-based bot was the first leg of my year inside eBay’s experimental arm, N. Another writer has since taken over since I’ve left (and she’s doing a great job), so the product is no longer a reliable reflection of my personal skills. But the principles and developed strategy live on. As do the deals, one hopes.
Google Shop - VR Tour
Lead Writer, ACD
The Google Shop at Curry's PC World is the tech giant's first fully-branded retail space. Working with partners Jaunt and Mirada, we created a virtual reality tour for Google Cardboard. What started as a bonus extra for journalists has turned into a public release.
Google, Jaunt, and Mirada were all so pleased that the Google Shop app was their demo of choice for VRLA 2015.
A confidential project in partnership with Activision to promote their new blockbuster game Destiny.
Every Dang Word
Kiki's Cocoa is a boutique chocolatier in San Francisco. Already a fan of their products, I was delighted when owner Kirsten Ritschel asked me to come on board to write the announcements for their monthly chocolate club. It's been a lot of fun developing the warm, cheery voice of Kiki's Cocoa and helping develop partnerships with local illustrators and artists.
I came to Autofuss while they were in full-swing preparing Winter Wonderlab, a series of seasonal popup locations for Google. I joined on to help transition their public language once the installations had come down.
