Brian Roemmele is the consummate Renaissance man. He is a scientist, researcher, analyst, connector, thinker and doer. More than anything, I've found Brian to be an observer of the world, asking questions and following his seemingly infinite curiosity to the root of an astounding variety of issues. Over the long, winding arc of his career, Brian has built and run payments and tech businesses, worked in media, including the promotion of top musicians, and explored a variety of other subjects along the way. One of his companies was on the Inc. 500 list of the fastest growing companies in the U.S. Brian actively shares his findings and observations across fora like Forbes, Huffington Post, Newsweek, Slate, Business Insider, Daily Mail, Inc, Gizmodo, Medium, Quora, Twitter and his own podcast, Around the Coin. Brian is one of the most prolific producers of top quality analytical content I've ever encountered. He created Multiplex (http://ReadMultiplex.com), a way to stay on top of everything important in technology, payments and just about anything else. Brian also founded VoiceFirst.Expert (http://VoiceFirst.expert) as a way to collaborate with start-up companies, legacy companies and agencies to build a sustainable Voice First and Voice Commerce plan.
