Ian Reid
We worked together  •  Co-Founder, Luminosity Scoring and Founder/CEO, Distant Moon Media Group.
As long as I've known Isaiah, he's blown me away by his work ethic, knowledge of whatever he's working on, and consistent excellence. We fir ... st met around 10 years ago, when he was coaching high school speech and debate. His students were known for being the best in the country, due to his coaching. He built his training company, Ethos, to be one of the most respected high-school speech and debate training resources in its field. He later went on to work as one of the founding employees of 9 Lenses, where he helped to build the company and its reputation among major brands in the US. Now, hearing his vision for his most recent startup, his passion and knowledge regarding his product are evident. Nothing he does is without understanding his market. Research, and finding his unfair advantage are at the core of how Isaiah operates.
