What projects are you most excited about?

Large-scale projects of 2,000+ participants excites me the most because of the data that is analyzed from multiple engagement channels. Leaving a lasting impression is one of my biggest goals and seeing the data collected from these events confirms that I created an app that thousands of users experienced a personalized, positive interaction.
