Boyuan Gao

Boyuan is a hybrid thinker, creator and builder, and the co-founder and principal of Project Inkblot. She’s traversed many worlds through “work”, meandering through unexpected crevices and subcultures, such as once working in a floral wholesale warehouse servicing primarily funeral homes, to coaching young people in juvenile detention centers throughout NYC, to being the owner and Editor-in-Chief of a global jazz publication partnering with the likes of the Miles Davis Estate. Prior to Project Inkblot, Boyuan has also worked as a digital marketer, community organizer, curriculum designer, music and culture journalist, workshop facilitator, amongst various other “titles”. Boyuan is a novice cultural anthropologist and jewelry designer, now residing in the deep bear and fox populated woods of Western Massachusetts.
