LEADERSHIP

TIM KASHANI

As co-founder of IT Mentors and of Apples and Oranges Arts with his wife, Broadway actress Pamela Winslow Kashani, Tim creates work environments where people with diverse artistic and technical skills unite to create innovative and entertaining products in business and the arts.

With IT Mentors, Tim designs global technology training solutions, helping major corporations understand and apply training and technology to increase business productivity, and providing meaningful advice to CEOs, senior executives, and business leaders. Always eager to learn and share his technical knowledge, Tim co-authored or contributed to several books including PerformancePoint Services 2010 Unleashed (SAMS), Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 (Wiley), and Drive Business Performance: Enabling a Culture of Intelligent Execution (Wiley).

Tim believes that technology and the arts should work hand-in-hand to move people forward. Fostering new Tech and Arts startups, Tim incubates ideas that exponentially foster a collaborative learning environment through human driven stories.

Tim has used his passion for both theater and technology to co-found Apples and Oranges Arts. His vision was to create an incubator for new musicals, Tim and his team created THEatre ACCELERATOR, seeking to apply the methods, processes, and mindset of the startup world to the performing arts. This includes data-driven ticket sales, marketing, and social media, and most importantly, a call to rethink the entire developmental and distribution cycle of new stories and explorations in how AR/VR/MR expand past the fourth wall.

In addition to his non-profit work, Tim’s production company, now called Apples and Oranges Studios, develops new works for stage and screen. Chief visionary and CEO for the company, Tim also writes, directs, and produces company projects.

Tim graduated from the University of California at Irvine with a Bachelor of Sciences in Information and Computer Sciences, later returning to finish his M.B.A. there. He also holds a M.F.A. in Film Production, with a specialization in directing from Chapman University.
