Hi–I’m Darby Bailey. I help everyday workers and families harness the power of A.I.

[My Founding Story ]

From a young age, I've been captivated by the power of storytelling and the potential of technology. Growing up with a scoutmaster dad and music teacher mom, with my six brothers, I learned the value of big dreams, adventures, and the importance of preparing for the future.

My journey has taken me from being a paper route kid at age 8 and running my own lawn mowing business, to pursuing my passions in acting and radio as a young adult. After earning my AS degree at Utah Tech U, I moved to Hollywood to chase my entertainment dreams.

In 1999, I found myself at the intersection of technology and voice acting, becoming the 'Voice of Tellme.' This opportunity allowed me to work with numerous Tech and Fortune 100 & 500 companies, including American Express, Verizon, AT&T, UPS, and Fidelity during the web 1.0 wave. Heard trillions of times, I knew eventually technology would replace me as I had replaced telephone operators with my "I'm sorry, I didn't get that" automated voice agent I'd helped build and patent. 

Then ... life brought heartbreak and divorce, while I tried to prepare myself for a future world where I knew I'd need to level-up my skills as tech continued to develop.

I went back to Hollywood... went back to school ... working in startups along the way. I earned a BA in Creative Writing from Antioch University Los Angeles, an MBA-IT from Western Governor's University, and a Graduate Certificate in Information Systems from the University of Utah. I was also on early startup teams from SonicCloud hearing software, to walking and talking audio apps. I launched my music publishing company, Pip Projects, Inc., and my music can be found on various digital platforms, including iTunes, Spotify, and iHeart Radio.

Now? I am a PhD Candidate researching entertainment-education at Regent University. I focus on the intersection of emerging technologies and entertainment-education, like the shows I grew up on (Sesame Street, Mr. Rogers), combined with games and gamification, and keeping my skills sharp as a scout would do, to prepare for the future.

As a data engineer at the Utah Department of Commerce and a lifelong learning instructor for "A.I. Unleashed" at the University of Utah, I am dedicated to helping others navigate the emerging era of A.I., automation, robots, and space exploration.

My goal is to alleviate fear and empower individuals to incorporate A.I. into their lives in meaningful ways.

I know what it's like to be an old dog that has to learn new skills to be ready for new technologies. As an early A.I. voice that replaced human operators, I have also been replaced by A.I. From what I've learned, I can help you clarify what A.I. tools you can apply to your life, without the overwhelm I had to go through, in this rapidly advancing field.

Through my various projects, like Sundays on X, which celebrates the connection between Earth and Mars, I aim to inspire and prepare people for the future of the global homestead.
