Co-founder / CTO @ From October 2015 to Present (1 month) Buffalo/Niagara, New York AreaFounder @ Having a family with three young children, we find ourselves visiting a lot of parks, zoos, museums and other cultural organizations. Unfortunately for as wonderful as these places are, many of them are lacking in information about their exhibits. As a dad, it's important to me to not only show my children the Ring-Tailed Lemur, a Pitch Apple Tree or a famous statue, but to also share with them fun and interesting facts about each. This makes for a deeper, more memorable, and not to mention, a more educational experience.
That's why I created Tourwand. My goal is to bring it to as many organizations as possible and provide a richer tour experience for visitors while helping the organization raise money through new sponsorship opportunities.
