I'm Kelly Campelia a.k.a. Firelady - I am a VR and film creator, producer and editor.
Before working in VR and film, I spent 6 years kicking ass as a Customer Experience Management Consultant for PwC (PricewaterhouseCoopers). Prior to that, I studied International Business and Finance at Bryant University graduating Summa Cum Laude.
Consulting taught me the ability to dive into the fire, learn extremely quickly, take initiative and execute in the face of steep challenges. I won the "MVP" award my first year at PwC and continued to win over 10 contribution awards in my time there. My growth and success helped me boldly change career paths, hustle and self-teach the technical and creative skills required for VR/360 building and filmmaking.
Just 2 years after changing course, I won Best Short Film at the Oregon Independent Film Festival for "You and Me, Me and You", and I led a team of 20 people to deliver an animated VR installation for the Wing Luke Museum which was featured on KUOW radio.
I am passionate about the merge of entertainment and technology as a powerful platform to enliven, educate, inspire and connect people. My goal is to be a trailblazer for modern immersive storytelling and education.
I love people and human connection. As such, I continue to incorporate that into my my life and my work by connecting through art and storytelling as well as by facilitating conversations via podcast. I produce, host and edit the Reality Quest Podcast where we dive deep into the minds and lives of those experimenting in the XR industry.
