Guided by his passion and thirst to evolve the ad-scape, Seni developed The Ad-Vocate. The key to igniting change is empowerment through knowledge; thus, Seni sought to create a location where students and young professionals could be exposed to the cutting edge advertising/marketing ideas that educational institutions simply aren’t providing.
Seni Thomas was born in Tokyo, Japan and lived throughout Southeast Asia before settling down on the island of Maui. After enduring a severe case of Island Fever he jumped ship to NYU’s Stern School of Business in good old New York City studying Marketing and International Business. Professionally he is driven by an entrepreneurial spirit which led to him founding a web development and computer repair company at 14. After a quarter life crisis at 15 – after a summer working 40 hours a week at Boeing R&D on Maui – he decided to pursue his other passion of marketing – essentially the study of people and why these crazy creatures do what they do. Interesting stuff. Since then he has dabbled in everything from launching Alternate Reality Games, to ethnic fashion marketing, to aiding in the launch of Verizon’s FiOS television service.
