Paula is the founder and CEO of Blind Chihuahua, a live music focused virtual studio and metaverse platform, built in Unreal Engine and streamed to the web. Paula has a long history in the top end of the music industry, engineering and producing multi platinum, academy award and GRAMMY winning tracks from Elton John, Stevie Nicks, Rob Zombie and many others. This has given her skills in using tech as a tool to communicate the artist’s vision to their audience. This connection is paramount in a great fan experience whether it’s a song recording, a music video, or a live immersive concert.
Blind Chihuahua is a startup who aims to transform the way global music fans interact with live concerts and artists’ content online. Paula has been an engineer for many years in an industry where women only make up 3% of the creative technical talent. She is passionate about the voice of gender diversity and perspective both in tech teams and in game. She is also passionate about bringing artists and fans together in virtual worlds where the music and fans’ shared experiences are exceptional, inclusive, diverse and accessible (and really really fun). The convergence of web3 tech with game engine tech will open up exciting opportunities for many different types of artists and their devoted followers.
