To celebrate Encyclopedia Britannica’s 250th anniversary, I lead the team that created the Curiosity Compass, an experience that empowers curiosity and inspires you to be true to yourself.

As part of this experience, the Curiosity Challenge compels you to dive into the past, the present, the self, and the community through a multi-week e-mail challenge with social components.

The marketing website focused on a Curiosity Profile Assessment that was centered around a series of questions we created based upon leading researchers and Britannica company philosophies to identify which of 4 curiosity profile types a user most aligned with. Each curiosity type had distinct traits and we encouraged users to learn more about themselves by reading biographies from similar personalities from our extensive database.
