Nick Gray is the Founder and CEO of Museum Hack, a group of renegade museum educators, scientists, musicians, and artists that seek to reimagine the adult museum experience.
Gray doesn’t come from an arts or museum background. In 2011 he started giving unofficial tours at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art for his friends. Since then, Museum Hack has grown to over 40 employees who give tours at museums in New York, San Francisco, Washington, DC, and Chicago. Museum Hack has also done professional development, event and consultations with nearly 100 institutions, including the National Park Service, California Academy of Sciences, Corning Museum of Glass and the Florida Museum of Natural History.
The company’s innovative engagement approach has been featured in the New York Times, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and Newsweek, and Gray has been a featured speaker at TEDxFoggyBottom, The DO Lectures and the Skift Conference, among others.
Nick is just one of the extraordinary guests featured on The One Way Ticket Show.
