While pursuing a degree in French Studies at Brigham Young University, Charly Kuecks worked for three years in the DNA Sequencing Center, studied French culture and literature in Paris, and wrote for popular print and web publications. She spent the next four years applying her unique skills in "techie translation" working as a front-end writer for technology firms, including joining Lucid Software as one of its first dozen employees.
After one weekend spent attending the inaugural Silicon Slopes Summit, volunteering at the Sundance screening of Al Gore's An Inconvenient Sequel, and seeing Golden Globe screenwriter and actor Rachel Bloom perform live, Charly decided to pivot from tech writing to pursuing an executive-level career in new media and original content. Charly is currently a full-time MBA student at the University of Utah, the perfect laboratory to connect with fellow entrepreneurial creators, innovators, and visionaries. Future in Review combines two of Charly's passions: forecasting the bleeding edge of innovation and supporting documentary film with a clear vision through FiReFilms. She's excited to meet like-minded futurists at FiRe.
