About

Hey, I’m Royce Wells.

I work at the intersection of technology and business.

Currently I am an Account Manager at Comrade, a digital strategy and design agency, leading projects in our social and environmental programs and web practice. I also run KnowTheZodiac with my wife Dossé-Via.

Brief History

I started messing around with computers when I was 4 (1996) and built my first website in 4th grade (2001) using Microsoft Frontpage. In high school (2006-2008), I ran a niche blog on secondary education before getting accepted at The University of Southern California (2009). At USC I studied history, spent a year abroad in France, and built more websites for students and school organizations.

After graduation (2013), I started a consulting group to create websites and digital campaigns for small businesses in Los Angeles, including work with a number of local nonprofit organizations. I also worked with my wife (then girlfriend) to build out the first digital products for her growing online astrology business ScorpioMystique.

I moved to Oakland and joined Comrade (2014) as an Account Executive, working on website design and development. Since, I’ve worked on projects for clients like BlackRock, Coca-Cola, and Wells Fargo. I started working with Comrade’s newest nonprofit clients (2015) and helped build the social and environmental programs over the next few years. The team has built websites and other digital products for nonprofits like FairTrade Certified and Humanity United. Comrade was acquired by CI&T (2017) and I moved to New York.

Currently

I work at Comrade leading various projects on our web practice with a focus on financial services and mission-based organizations. I also head the product team for KnowTheZodiac. I live in Harlem with my wife and daugther.

I love to travel with my family and still mess around with computers. I keep notes on the things I’m working on and thinking about here on the site. If you want to get in touch with me, reach out.
