Floyd Hall is a media strategist, cultural producer, writer and documentarian from Atlanta, Georgia. His professional work often relates to the intersection of art, media and technology as platforms. As an artist he is interested in the process of how we come to define and design ourselves, and is passionate about how history, culture and art blend together to construct narratives of place.
He has worked across the media spectrum in a variety of roles and capacities, including strategy, research and production; his current and past work spans several industries, including Digital Media Entertainment, Brand Management, Nonprofit Arts, Social Change, Sporting Goods, Sports Media and Luxury Lifestyle.
He has produced over 700 podcast episodes covering Art, Pop Culture, Fashion, Sports, Music, and Technology, including projects for National Public Radio (NPR) Station WABE, Woodruff Arts Center/High Museum, Flux Projects, the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art and WonderRoot.
Floyd counts the experiences of his Atlanta upbringing, childhood summers spent in Augusta, Georgia and living in New York City as an adult as the primary influences on his life. Time spent in these locations gave him moments of clarity and insight about regional perspectives, the immigrant experience, how spaces influence patterns of life, and the imagination and ingenuity of different cultures.
He is passionate about the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) disciplines and holds a BS in Mathematics from Morehouse College, a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) and an MBA from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Business.
Floyd is a 2020 Idea Capital artist grant recipient. He also has supplementary training in Radio & Television Broadcasting, is a Hambidge Creative Residency Fellow and has presented as a guest lecturer at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Spelman College, Spelman College Musuem of Fine Art, and the Hudgens Center for Art and Learning, and is a media contributor to ArtsATL, Number, Inc, ART PAPERS, and Americans for the Arts.
