Oliver is the founder and CEO of theAudience. Prior, Oliver was CEO and co-founder of DigiSynd, a Walt Disney Company and previously Oliver co-founded Revver and helped kick off new media with their novel concept of the video rev-share: the principle component of Revver's business. He left the company in 2006.
Prior to Revver, Oliver took the Norman Lear "Declare Yourself" campaign to the Internet and gathered more than one million new online voter registrations.
Taking a trip back further, we would find Oliver as the co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of iBlast, Vice President of Network Development at Anschutz Digital Media, Chief IP services architect for Qwest Communications and founder of the media and technology consulting firm, Revilopark. Unfortunately, ReviloPark's client list is highly confidential, so we cannot disclose its work with Norman Lear, The Wayans Brothers, BlueChip Investors, Pamela Anderson, David LaChapelle, HSI Productions and Karyn Rachtman's Mind Your Music.
Oliver still cherishes his bachelor's degree in French Literature from Vanderbilt University. Additionally, he teaches at various graduate schools in Digital Media and lectures extensively at industry conferences and events worldwide.
He makes his home in Los Angeles, CA where there is almost always a stranger sleeping on his couch.
