Emma DeMaris

Marketing Intern

My life has been grounded in storytelling from a young age. My family would take midnight hikes after every holiday gathering, the children listening to the childhood stories of uncles and grandparents, eventually growing up to tell their own. I spent six summers working for the Boy Scouts of America at a camp in Northern Minnesota, where I perfected my telling of eerie folklore lit only by the flickering embers of the fire. Throughout high school and college, I spent my time committed to sharing stories on a stage through theatre. Whether a big splashy musical or intimate drama, there were stories I was itching to tell. The idea of finding stories worth telling has been a challenge and motivator throughout my entire life.

I am a graduate of the University of Hawaii at Manoa with a degree in Theatre, with a focus on Arts Marketing, and a prior Marketing Intern for the Seattle Children’s Theatre. If you’re wondering how theatre and art connects with inventing and innovating, you probably aren’t alone. The way I see it, innovation is an art form in its own right. Creation is creative, no matter what shape it takes. I believe technology can be admired in the same way as a magnificent piece of art, as thought-provoking as a good play, and can catch the attention of the world like the latest best-selling book.

Xinova is bursting with incredible stories eager to be told. I can’t help but feel inspired by watching some of the brightest minds solve the biggest challenges with creative thinking. Xinova is creating real change around the globe and I am honored to be able to share those stories.
