Website

Andrew Baron is the creator and founder of the popular daily video show, Rocketboom. After receiving a BA in Philosophy from Bates College, Baron graduated with an MFA in Design and Technology in 2003 from Parsons in New York City, where he went on to teach graduate and undergraduate courses. He was teaching at Parsons and MIT when the notion of Rocketboom came to him in 2004. Although he has little interest in television (and has not owned a TV set during the past decade), Baron has always been inspired by the implications of the democratization of media.
