BioSequitur Neuromarketing

Experimental Marketing Research Director

Biosequitur began as a research project designed to make user experiences more effective by quantitatively measuring their emotional impact on audiences, then using that data to build a better UX.

After studying post graduate physiology and psychology I designed and tested neuromarketing technologies for predicting the potential success of motion picture trailers and visual marketing campaigns. I then partnered with Central Avenue Pictures (Studio South Holdings) to proposition the city of Charlotte on the possibility of using local properties for building a motion picture studio and school of motion picture sciences.
