Young Guru

Co-Founder, Era of the Engineer
Often referred to as “The Sound of New York,” legendary audio engineer, Young Guru is best known for his work behind the boards with Jay Z, who would shout out Guru’s name on the records themselves—an unheard of acknowledgement to give to an engineer at the time. Guru’s ability to communicate complex technical terms, not only to artists but students, creatives and business professionals alike, has led to his reputation as the foremost leader bridging the gap between hip-hop and the tech community. He is also the Co-Founder of Era of the Engineer, a social enterprise that aims to promote the concept that "everything is engineered" by "re-engineering" the current “Do-It-Yourself” way of thinking in technology.
