Founder, BDG Consulting
Barrett Garese has worked at the intersection of technology and entertainment for more than 15 years, with organizations as varied as startups and studios, and as disparate as government agencies and global IP. He is currently a strategic advisor for media and technology startups, focusing on creative and product development at the nexus of technology and storytelling.
Prior to this, Barrett was the SVP of Technology at RL Leaders, tasked with utilizing technology and entertainment industry expertise to identify and build teams and solutions for global problems. Earlier in his career he was the Chief Strategy Officer of Everybody At Once, a groundbreaking social agency focused on audience development and social media strategy. After graduating from film school, he began his career in United Talent Agency’s mailroom. Within two years he had become a founding agent of UTA’s new online division – the first major talent agency division devoted exclusively to identifying and monetizing online content.
Outside of work, he enjoys travel, writing, cars and motorcycles – preferably all at once.
