With over 100 speaking engagements in the past six years, Lucas has spread his innovative passion of embedding technology further into the community by involving Stand And Stretch with many diverse, economic efforts; both on a State and National level.
At TEDxAugusta, he was able to share his work with Hack Columbus, a non-profit he co-founded to ensure the Columbus Georgia community could activate and retain a creative class. After being born and raised in Columbus, his dedication to empowering businesses and non-profits has provided many opportunities for growth.
The TEDx Talk on the right is called “Hacking The Middle Class.” Lucas sheds light on a real problem around future city infrastructures and the importance of providing ‘creative technologists’ a place to live, play and work.
In the summer of 2014, Lucas helped bring together a group of ‘hackers’ and put their powers over innovative technologies to use for good.
Lucas is a well-known ‘hacktivist’ and a co-founder of Hack Columbus. Each month they put on “hackathons” in which they explore creative ways to look at the problems in our community and solve them with code. The Hack Columbus membership is well-known from their Hack The Library event, when we took over the Columbus Public Library for 48 hours and challenged our technologists to work towards embedding technology into the user experience.
Hacktivism is a relatively new term but focuses on the altruistic nature of open-source cultures and philanthropy.
Our process is always evolving.
For everything from mobile usage to online shopping, the consumer is a hybrid animal for which we have become well-trained hunters. It all starts with an idea. Your business can be better and we can take you there by just imagining a napkin drawing and allowing it to grow.
We are not just a web design firm or graphic shop, we have the back-end to grow your idea into a living, breathing ‘thing’.
