Introduce yourself.

John Romeo, Founder & Director, Research Anywhere

What does a typical day look like for you?
Research Anywhere is currently an arm of John Romeo & Associates, a marketing communications firm. Most of my day is spent working with our clients and my full-time team on various video and graphic design projects. I’m working toward our goal of growing Research Anywhere and spinning it off into its own company.

What inspired you to start your company?
We regularly develop videos for consumer insight research and focus groups, and have been experimenting with exciting new technologies. Smaller/portable cameras, fast web streaming, and 360°/VR capture methods open up new opportunities to bring companies closer to consumers in a way that was not previously possible.

What’s your favorite thing about Virginia?
I love the various environments: cities, small towns, beaches, mountains, the James River. And it happens to be situated between two of my favorite places, New York City and the Outer Banks. We live in Richmond, and my favorite thing here is the variety of fantastic local restaurants.
