ALAN SMITHSON at “Flying into the Metaverse Through Books and Culture” – METAVRSE

Flying into the Metaverse Through Books and Culture is honored to have here Alan Smithson, Co-Founder of MetaVRse, Father, Founder, Futurist, Building for the positive future of humanity.
I interviewed Alan Smithson last year in May 2022 during AWE USA 2022 in California and if you went to AWE USA 2022, you can’t forget the wonderful party organized in Alan and Julie’s villa… amazing!

I kept this interview until now, because Alan with his energy boost had to announce AWE USA 2023!  The path that Alan has made this year has been amazing. From Metavrse through Artificial Intelligence…. Alan is proud of his exceptional family, Julie Smithson and her two daughters, Abi Smithson e Holly Smithson that are a fundamental piece of the puzzle of his life!
Alan is a fun character and extraordinarily professional. I had so much fun interviewing him (and especially editing this video!).

What surprises does Alan still have in store for us? We’ll find out in less than a week, at AWE USA 2023! For now, enjoy his interview!
