walter soyka

Founder, Designer, Head Geek, Loudest Typist in the World
Walter started Keen Live in 2006 with the idea that he could be creative and nerdy at the same time. He’s a respected leader in the motion design community, and he’s spent the last ten years using that expertise building and managing immersive content for really big screens. As resident mad scientist, he’s always thinking, trying to make a piece of technology just a little bit better, or a piece of creative just a little bit more impactful. Walter lives in the New York suburbs with his wife and son and spends his spare time in Microsoft Excel.
