About Jaimey


Jaimey Walking Bear (that’s me!) has built a long career of more than 20 years working in the event, tech, entertainment, and retail sectors — including O’Reilly Media, Digital Summit, Modev, and various music festivals over the years.

I’ve been blessed with the privilege to work directly with hundreds amazing thought leaders — from luminaries like Seth Godin, Ann Handley, Tim O’Reilly, Gary Vaynerchuk, and Chris Brogan — to an ever-growing assortment of industry experts (i.e. “ridiculously smart, awesome people”).

I love being in the thick of it, connecting  subject experts, thought leaders, musicians, and other creatives  — with the professional opportunities to be amazing and transform the world for the better. To quote Chris Brogan, I live for being the elbow of the deal — the spark that lights bridges to holy cow opportunities for thriving communities.

My wife Tiffany and daughters, Zara and Zoë, are my heart. Music of all kinds is my soul. I love baseball (go #SFGiants!), entertainment, social justice, urban farming and food justice, the City of Detroit, and Tuolumne Meadows.

Originally from the Bay Area, Tiff and I currently call Matagalpa, Nicaragua home. We’re loving life among the native bees and flora, our seven chickens, our German Shepherd, Hugo, and our Expat Tortoiseshell kitty, Ysabella.
