About the speaker

Jelani Memory is a husband and father of 6 kids. Yes, six! He was born and raised in Portland, Oregon with one dream in life: to become an artist. It is yet to be decided whether he’s accomplished this or not.

He is also co-founder at Circle Media Labs, Inc. (just call it “circle”) where he led product for products like Circle with Disney and T-Mobile FamilyMode. He is currently the CEO and founder of A Kids Book About—a company that he hopes will make the most important books that kids ever read.
