Ryan Cummins has had an amazing path working with influential people through Live Earth, talking with 120 Nobel Prize and Fields Medal winners, MacArthur Genius Grant recipients, and Pulitzer Prize winners. His work culminated in him having a new understanding of what he could do to allow us all to have life-changing, amazing, celebrity experiences, while also supporting massive charity efforts. This all gave birth to a company called Omaze.

Omaze is an experience-driven fundraising platform that uses the power of storytelling and technology to radically change charitable giving. Through his work at Omaze, Ryan has engaged with top performers, influencers, and franchises including Bono, Robert Downey Jr., Serena Williams, George Clooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and more.
