Tim Wright joins Rick this week. Tim is currently Co-Founder and Chief Strategic Officer at Dome Audio.
Before embarking on a career in the technological arena, Tim Wright played in the pro football one. A former tight end who spent three years in the NFL after going undrafted out of Rutgers in 2013—one each for the Buccaneers, Patriots, and Lions—Wright won a championship with New England when the team beat the Seattle Seahawks 28–24 in Super Bowl XLIX.
Wright played, but had no catches. He caught 6 touchdowns in the regular season.
Wright wants to bring game-changing headphones to deaf and hard-of-hearing people.
While winning a Super Bowl ring may represent the pinnacle of one’s football career, it doesn’t represent the pinnacle of who Wright is as a person. In a recent interview with me conducted over email, Wright made crystal clear at the outset that he’s always believed himself to be “more than an athlete.” He described his life’s purpose as “[investing] in art, technology, big vision ideas, and making a difference in people’s lives.” The origins of Wright’s entrepreneurial spirit trace back to his days at Rutgers on the school’s football team, where he became the sole offensive captain; he carried these lessons into his playing career and elsewhere.
Dome uses proprietary technology to offer so-called “open” and “closed” headphones—open being bone-conducting style, closed being the more traditional Beats-like style—designed to help people hear better all the while providing improved audio fidelity.
Wright believes this mindset has set him up well for success in life. “When preparation meets opportunity, success is inevitable… my discipline and acumen, coupled with my gifts as a visionary, shines through in my daily works,” he said.
