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 Mr. Brogan, I love being the elbow of the deal. Serving others. Being 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 varieties is my soul. I <3 baseball (go #SFGiants!), entertainment, social justice, 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 eleven chickens, our German Shepherd, Hugo, and our Expat Tortoiseshell kitty, Ysabella.

What's Left Hand Blue anyway?

One of my core life philosophies is — if you're not having fun, you're doing it all wrong. You might call me a Vaudevillian Buddhist (everything is changing and interesting, so much is entertaining, and that's a wonderful blessing).

Left Hand Blue is a nod to to the classic human contortionist game, Twister. But, really, it's an homage and reminder to have fun, stay curious, be joyful, and bend to serve others whenever necessary.
