A true expert in his field, Heath has invented innumerable AI and voice changing technologies for over fifteen years. He established the very first cloud-based, text to speech platform, iSpeech.org in 2007; which brought to market DriveSafe.ly 2009. This was the first app to dictate text messages aloud (CES Best Mobile App 2011, Mashable Best Mobile App 2010) before creating iSpeech Home in 2012; a connected home precursor of Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
Both an early and follow-on investor in multiple tech startups including Andreessen Horowitz-backed, ReadyPlayerMe, Heath has lectured on the social impact of artificial intelligence, bootstrapping and speech technology at many industry conferences including TEDx, NJTC, CTIA, AI World Forum 2017 and Mobile Voice Conference.
After iSpeech, Heath built an enormously robust app portfolio from scratch - building over fifty apps, acquiring a further fifty and exiting over a dozen. He has had iPhone apps in the top 50 and has continuously built technology that is lightyears ahead of its time. At the core of these accomplishments sits a demonstrable love for the power of voice; be it human or synthetic. It is this fervor that sparked the inception of Voice.ai, reverberates throughout the business and ignites excitement with both colleagues and communities alike.
An ex-opera singer, tech paramour and respected advisor for startups, Heath is an avid gearhead and boater, in any spare time he can grab, will be found fly-fishing the flats, eFoiling or being relentlessly humbled by his small children.
