speaker & Activist
By using the urban landscape as his canvas, Ruben encourages communities to change for the better through optimism and collaboration. These once vacant walls are now vibrant reminders that inspire those who see them to dream big, feel beautiful, live in possibility, and to love.

Ruben’s murals can be seen in cities across the country and around the world from Paris to New York and Florida to Mississippi. Ruben’s portfolio of work extends beyond murals. He is a TED speaker, helping spread the message of art creating impact, a product designer and also a corporate consultant.

Ruben is also co-founder of Beautify Earth, a nonprofit dedicated to putting an end to blighted walls and fixtures all over the world by empowering artists, encouraging social responsibility, and instilling community pride.

Great work can come out of just about anything – even small teams, tiny budgets and less-than-limited resources. The thinking, the process and the creativity are what truly generate meaningful work. So ditch the norms, embrace your gut and turn the traditions of marketing on its head.

Collection of talent

We want to create an exciting space for ideas, thoughts, and beliefs to be celebrated. This a big time networking event with a place for everyone.
