Tell us about Moses Inc. What inspired the idea and what is your vision for the company?

The vision remains the same after 33 years and that is to create an environment where ideas can flourish and creative collaboration is essential.

What strategic partnerships/marketing strategies have you implemented that have attributed to Moses Inc’s success?

Finding the right people comes first. The work is only as good as the people creating it. We find talented, motivated, smart people.

What industry trends are you noticing and how do you capitalize on them?

Trends are like junk food. They look so inviting and you feel empty after indulging. We look for “human truths” and sometimes they manifest themselves as current trends. But the trend shouldn’t drive the idea.
