Elijah’s variegated career began in the PR department of his alma mater, the University of Southern California, where he served as a liaison to the entertainment industry for eight years. A student of human behavior, moving to Austin in 2006 afforded him the opportunity to explore an entirely different business world and become well-versed in the language and psychology of start-ups, ultimately becoming a mentor, pitch coach, professional speaker, and adjunct professor.
In 2014, Elijah founded The Experience Firm, a management consultancy focused entirely on customer experience, and went on to work with human-focused innovators at some of the biggest brands in the world.
But his ongoing search for the hard work worth doing came to an abrupt halt when he was challenged by a close friend to take over an ambitious project and build the world’s greatest destination for people who love robots. With his family’s enthusiastic endorsement, he created the Robotters brand and stepped into the role of CEO. Today, Elijah continues to consult with global brands while developing plans for the world’s first recreational robotics arena for everyone.
