It’s an incredible time to be working in live video and at Maestro, we are building a new category of live content for businesses that live stream. Over the last century most companies have become media companies, producing content -- especially video content -- more and more. We believe that in this next century most companies will become enterprise live streamers as live increases in importance and as it becomes intertwined into on-demand video strategies. Along with this trend, there is a new class of live streamers emerging; it’s not the traditional media broadcaster like CBS or NBC, and it’s also not an individual Twitch, Periscope, or YouTube star. These new enterprise live streamers — game publishers, esports leagues and teams, music festivals, conferences, and retailers — are forging new live content strategies.
At Maestro, our mission is to help this new class of enterprise live streamers engage their audiences and gather data insights like never before. We teach our clients how to maestro and orchestrate engagement strategies that resonate with their audiences. These experiences delight fans while also capturing robust analytics and information. Maestro captures granular user-level behaviors empowering businesses to strategically analyze how they can increase fan retention and monetization opportunities. With our platform, clients simply understand their audiences better. Our clients have discovered that there’s no better pursuit than establishing an authentic two-way dialogue between their brand and their fans.
CEO & Founder
Some people have eyes on the backs of their heads. Well, Shahrod’s got a spare ear. He’s passionate about eating burritos and identifying birds, ideally at the same time. At work Shahrod works on quick fixes, front-end features, and internal tools.
The Maestro of Maestros himself is a 5 year old at heart who translates ideas from his vast imagination into well-designed products used by millions. He’s the guy you always figured would be an entrepreneur after managing to turn each of his passions into businesses since age 12. At night he prays he’ll wake up as the greatest anime/videogame character of all time with sweet hair like Cloud from Final Fantasy 7.

Jason is that guy that has "the usual" everywhere he goes. He has been enjoying watching his favorite show on saturday (One Piece) since 1999 and yes he is caught up. He enjoys a good book on actual paper and listening to podcasts in his free time. Jason's main job is to poke buttons while sitting in a chair all day and somehow get paid for it! Yay Programming!

When Chris isn't leading the sales efforts at Maestro, he can usually be found admiring nature or, as the ancient Greeks would say, "freeing himself" by studying the liberal arts. He also believes mobile games are best suited for the restroom.
A natural born Maestro, Olivia is responsible for conducting all client activations. From channel creation to the final stream, Olivia ensures all clients remain in tune before, during and after their live events. When she puts down her Maestro baton Olivia enjoys traveling, exploring new restaurants and flexing her rap skills as MC Chubby Bunny.
Tamara is the unicorn emoji in human form. She enjoys pizza and creating scrapbooks made of professional photos of Shahrod in front of plants. She is responsible for client facing things. She on-boards clients to maestro, helps them set up their channel and makes sure their events run as smoothly as Barry White riding through the milky way galaxy made of pure, delicious cheesecake. When she is not at work she can be found nowhere.
On the daily, Chung pushes pixels, crafts interfaces, and wrangles images. In his free time, he likes slaying dragons, picking stuff up, producing music, and cooking. If you want to get to know him better, try tweeting obscure memes or propane jokes at him.
Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs, Haleigh developed a knack for creating innovative top-down business strategies. She has always had a passion for the latest and greatest digital marketing technology, which is why she enjoys executing consultative sales at Maestro. When she isn’t working with enterprise businesses to supercharge their video streaming; she loves enjoying nature, scouting gem shows far and wide for new stones for her collection, designing natural stone jewelry, and accidentally writing songs while singing in the car.
People have called him the Second Most Interesting Man, right after the Dos Equis guy. He considers himself more of a Renaissance Man, coder and pretzel aficionado.
Kyle’s passionate about finding opportunities and growing business for startups in the tech industry. When he’s not smiling and dialing you can find him yelling "FORE!" on the golf course, rooting for his favorite sports teams (Go Seahawks!) and hoping for a resolution to the traffic nightmare in LA (or self-driving cars ... whichever comes first.)

Tiffany is excited to help grow Maestro’s brand, business, and mind share in the tech and live streaming industry. When she’s not running marketing initiatives, chatting with media, and creating content, you can find her off the couch — skiing black diamonds, planning trips abroad, and commandeering the recliners of friends. Couch potatoing is reserved for GoT and learning how to code because you can’t be in tech and not know something about that. At one point, she ran for the Hawaii State House of Representatives and got 40% of the votes.
