Launching the TEDxAIR Program, with Shane Robinson

Shane Robinson, TEDxAIR Honolulu artist

When Shane and I moved Bare Feet Studios to Hawai‘i, we were an easy-to-understand web company. We built web databases, designed blogs, set up podcasts, offered SEO services, and helped our clients craft digital strategy to grow their businesses.

But Hawai‘i has a way of seeping into your soul, calling forth desires and ideas that may not fit into neat little boxes. For the past few years we’ve added numerous skillsets and interests to our “studios” concept, keeping our “bare feet” vibe of staying connected and adventurous, soaking up the comfort and creativity that Hawai‘i offers.

All of which led to Shane being invited to be one of the first seven TEDx Artists in Residence. Shane talked more about the TEDxAIR program on his art blog.

Shane was also invited to give a speech – and it’s an archetypal story of integrating one’s opposite interests, defying other people’s expectations, and coming to terms with the inner critic. The live stream is here, for now. The edited videos will be posted in a few months.

Please join Shane’s email list to stay connected with his updates.
