Hi. I’m Sarah Brin. I specialize in building and leading teams that bring unprecedented creative technology experiences to life. I’m originally from Southern California, and I currently live in London with my big dog, Svenska. I’m the Business Development Manager at Media Molecule, who make the digital creativity suite Dreams.
I have a hybrid background that spans sectors, including Fortune 500 tech companies, governments, games/entertainment studios, arts/cultural organizations, and academia.
When you specialize in innovation with new technologies, businesses and disciplines, sometimes it can be hard for other people to understand what you do. Here are some job titles and projects I often use to define my practice:
Producer/Programme Manager: I’ve worked as a Senior Producer and Programme Manager for organisations including Rolls Royce, Autodesk, Meow Wolf, the European Union and many others. I specialize in agile/scrum development processes for web, digital games, AR/VR/XR, mobile, digital fabrication, immersive installations, and live events. I’ve received the Creative Producers International, Red Dot, and International Game Developers Association awards for my production work, too.
Business Development and Strategic Partnerships: I’m a connector, and I love finding and developing new partnerships that connect audiences with mind-blowing technology and brands. I’ve developed and contributed to joint-ventures and partnerships with brands like Microsoft, Magic Leap, Bose, Sony PlayStation, Planet Labs, SFMOMA, Google, and lots more.
Public Speaker, Teacher and Coach: I’ve had the privilege of speaking about design, creativity, and leadership at venues worldwide, including SXSW, Eyeo, the Game Developers Conference, British Council Japan, Playable City, and many others.
I’ve taught undergraduate and graduate design courses at IT University Copenhagen, and I’ve guest lectured at international universities including the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, the University of Southern California, Falmouth University, Ringling School of Art and Design, and loads more. I also offer artist coaching services for creatives who are looking to level up their practice.
What do all these roles have in common? The future, sustainability, and organizational change. I’m excited about developing new and equitable systems for creating groundbreaking creative technology projects, and translating that to fiscal growth.
