MESSAGE FROM FOUNDER

Hi! I decided to write this as it’s my introduction to you:

My friends call me “X” and my mom gave me the middle name Xavier because she thought it would look good on a campaign sign.

I got my professional start in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina as an AmeriCorps member. I worked for the City of New Orleans for three years and also co-founded a charitable organization responsible for the largest integration of public art and emergency preparedness in the world called “Evacuspots.”

Since
Since then, my life has taken many turns as all of ours do. Professionally, I’ve surrounded myself with people more talented and skilled than me and with clients who believe in our work.

It’s worked out so far, and I’m ready for our next challenge, which is bigger, bolder and scarier than I’d initially imagined it to be. That’s why we’re hiring you–to be at my side as we take Dear World to places we never initially thought possible.

Robert “X” Fogarty
Founder
