David Torpey Speaks at TEDx Broadway

 

David Torpey: Executive Creative Director

Our Executive Creative Director was asked to speak at the TEDx Broadway event which took place in NYC in February.

 

His obvious passion for emerging technologies means that Dave constantly stays close to where technology is headed and uses it cleverly to push the boundaries and create new layers on traditional creative methods.

 

He has done this many times, however his recent work on the Heartbeat of Home show (created by the producers of Riverdance) really showcased the extent of his talent and his ability to truly transcend the audience.
