An early internet nerd and tech futurist, Lindsey is consumed by the emergence of the metaverse, and excited about the ways crypto, blockchain, gaming, NFTs, and XR will change our current digital and physical landscape.  

As the former Global Head of Technology and Innovation at AB InBev, the world's largest brewer, she launched Stella Artois into the metaverse in an explosive partnership with ZED RUN, a crypto horse racing game. One of the first major brand executions in the space, the Cannes Lion award-nominated campaign put Stella Artois on the map as the first beer brand and FMCG company in the metaverse and was well received by traditional and crypto media alike.
